Ok guys, it’s officially crunch time!! We have just over 3 months to go before our little family of 3 becomes a little family of 4!! (OMG!! I just had a little inner freak out! It’s coming so fast!!)
As you know, I’ve been focusing on decorating the nurseries (because that’s the fun part!!!) but what about travel necessities!! I am still going to be travelling between Kelowna and Vancouver for Love It or List It, so first things first – I need to tackle the dreaded DIAPER BAG DILEMMA!!
I had no idea what to look for, other than the fact that there is no way I will go function over fashion LOL, so I asked some of my mama friends what they recommend and here are a few great points they had to share:
- It must have compartments!! There is nothing worse than putting something in the diaper bag but not being able to find it! The more organized, the better.
- Choose a bag that is easy to get into with one hand, as you are often holding your babe with the other.
- Comfort is key! You must be able to carry it comfortably without it constantly falling off your shoulders.
So the search was on for something with lots of compartments, with easy access, that is also comfortable AND of course fashionable. Is this even possible? Well, I did some digging and was pleasantly surprised!! Here are my top 3 choices, followed by the complete round up below…
There were a few reasons this bag made my top 3. First of all it’s unisex, so Justin won’t feel embarrassed if he needs to carry it around. Secondly, it has a ton of compartments, on the inside and out. It’s easy to access and best of all…it has a specific spot for my laptop!! Perfect for a working/travelling mom like myself.
Maybe it’s just the season, but I love the look of this bag because it reminds me of something I’d take to the beach! It is the largest diaper bag I found, which I was a little hesitant about at first, but the strap looks comfortable and the compartments inside look like a dream!! It has two open side compartments for easy access AND a zippered middle compartment to store all things you don’t want to lose. All in all, a great option!
I absolutely LOVE The Honest Company and their site was one of the first places I checked for diaper bags. They only have a couple of different options to choose from, but they are all very stylish and functional designs. I don’t typically wear backpacks but I love the idea of being hands-free with my babe and not worrying about it falling off my shoulder. I also absolutely LOVE this light, neutral colour and the fact that it is super easy to clean!
