Want a chic diaper bag? Here is a secret: Nearly any oversized bag can make a stunningly stylish diaper bag, if you know what features you need.
- Look for something that is easy to clean. If it is not machine washable, select something that has a smooth, slick, waterproof surface. If it is cloth, choose a machine washable bag.Here are some helpful hints for your shopping:
- Look for something relatively easy to open with one hand.
- Look for something with pockets. (You may use pockets for things like hand sanitizer, diapers, wipes, a change of clothes, burp cloths, small toys, ointment, plastic bags, bottles, and teething rings.)
- Look for something that is comfortable and easy to carry. A backpack style is most certain to free your hands.
- Finally, purchase an insert for your oversized bag like the Skip Hop Pronto. Having this truly transforms any larger bag to a diaper bag. (Plus, it is all you need for travel, and your husband can maintain a feeling of manliness while carrying it.)
