The Ultimate Stylish Diaper Bag Guide

The Ultimate Stylish Diaper Bag Guide

I’ve had the idea to write this post for the longest time now, and I really hope that those that are in the middle of diaper bag shopping will find it useful! Ever since I graduated from college and started making my own money, I’ve been more and more obsessed with handbags. Well, who am I kidding, I was obsessed with college too, but once I made my own money, I went down the rabbit hole of getting obsessed with designer handbags. But as 1 and then 2 kids came along, honestly, diaper bags became THE new bag. But since I’ve always wanted to ensure that I wouldn’t sacrifice style for function, I’ve actually found many brands that do both so well. So here I have the The Ultimate Stylish Diaper Bag Guide where I am sharing 10 different bag brands, what the bags look like when I wear them for sizing reference, and a little peek at how things fit inside. I’ll also share what I like about each of the brands/bags as well.

1. Fawn Design

Ways to wear it: Backpack, Crossbody
Measurement: 13″W x 15″H x 8″D
Interior Capacity: Large
Price: $145.99

What I like about the bag: The Fawn Design bag is created by a local Utah mama and has really increased in popularity over the last year. Their leather bags come in variety of colors great for boy and girl mamas, it is easy to clean, and it opens wide so you can see all of your essentials. It has a lot of great pockets all around on the inside as well as exterior zippered pockets and side pockets for cups. These bags get sold out often, so I would make sure to follow their Instagram to know when they have restocks! 

What I like about the brand: I really love the style and capacity of these bags. I know many people who wear them and use them for their every day bags, and not just for a diaper bag. I actually have it in grey and blush as well!

Ways to wear it: Backpack

Price: $195

What I like about the bag: The TWELVElittle backpack is extremely lightweight, has great interior pockets and comes in a variety of colors as well. It’s also got the front and side pockets to carry even more essentials. Having a backpack style is key when you are holding 1 kid in your arm and trying to do something else with your other arm. I really like that these bags are super lightweight so that it doesn’t weigh you down. 

What I like about the brand: The TWELVElittle brand carries a huge variety of bags varying in styles from crossbody to tote to backpack and is constantly coming out with new designs. Some of my other favorites are this leopard one and this striped one.

What I like about the bag:The Jujube B.F.F. Diaper Bag is versatile in the way that it can be worn as a backpack or crossbody and that the opening is on the front. You just zip it open and pull the flap down to see the contents. It has a variety of pockets on the inside and the front exterior and even a key chain clasp. A changing pad comes inside the back pocket as well. The bottom of the bag is structured with luggage feet so it stands up well on its own.

What I like about the brand: Besides the versatility in ways to wear this bag, I really love the unique prints that Jujube has to offer. This is one of their most popular styles, but they also carry a variety of other styles with different prints. They even have bags for mini mes

What I like about the bag: The Bodomint bag combines fashion and function in a subtle look that both mom and dad can feel confident wearing. This multifunctional bag and can be worn over one shoulder, converted to a backpack or hooked to your stroller with stroller hooks (sold separately). I fell in love with the versatility and the stripes! 

What I like about the brand: Their bags only come in 2 colors, black and striped. The striped one is constantly sold out and you have to wait for a pre-order but it’s totally worth it. I love that it has a leaher contrasting trim as well to give it that perfect stylish touch.

What I like about the bag: The Lily Jade Elizabeth in Red Canvas is so great because it can be worn multiple ways, the canvas really gives it a high quality feel, and I love the contrasting leather trim. It comes complete with a detachable, washable “Baby Bag” organizer and changing pad. The cell phone and side pockets are key.

What I like about the brand: I actually do own quite a few Lily Jade bags and I can tell you that their quality is top notch and I haven’t faced an issue with any of the ones I own. I really love that they have a removable “Baby Bag” organizer that can be snapped out so that you can transform the diaper bag to your every day or travel bag so easily. They have a variety of different styles and colors that they offer.

What I like about the bag: This PacaPod bag is made from beautiful smooth cowhide leather and has gold shiny hardware. It has these pods that can be used for specific items such as water bottles with material like a cooler.. The bags take the guesswork out of organization and lay it all out for you. I just love this light grey color and think it makes a great travel bag. 

What I like about the brand: PacaPod bags were built around their 3-1 pod organization system. I love that they take the details of what is typically in a diaper bag and lay out the organization for you. Their products really do feel luxurious. They also come in a variety of colors and styles.

About the brand: Newlie offers a handful of bag options, all in neutral colors. Having them neutral makes it so great since it should go well with any outfit!

    What beautiful bags! Nobody would know that they were diaper bags 🙂

  13. August 22, 2016 / 10:42 pm

    I think I went a little crazy with pins! 🙂 I do have a diaper bag I love and designed myself! I would actually love to chat with you about reviewing it in exchange for a free bag. I’ve been testing it for a year and it’s really perfect for what I carry around for me and baby.

      I’m not sure if you will see this, but I’m very interested in the type of bag you have. I know a lot of fashionable mamas that would love a new bag! You can find me on gmail…. Lindsey3989

    I have almost all of these bags! This is such a great guide. I love that you included all of the dimensions. Sometimes you order and when you receive it it’s much larger or smaller than you expected!

    Hi 🙂 You have so many diaper bags! Out of all the 10 diaper bags, which one would you recommend? I was contemplating between the Jujube and the TwelveLittle as I did not know of the other brands!
