It seems that the old fashioned diaper bags are really becoming a thing of the past. Many moms find it a lot easier to just get a regular medium to large size purse. If you get the right size you will have plenty of room in the bag for all of the items that you need. Take some time and think about it and the things that you need to keep in your bag.
If you have a baby you will want to have at least two to three diapers when you head out. You will also need the following, a pack of baby wipes, diaper cream, bottle, and a dirty diaper bag. Also most moms like to include an extra onsie and blanket for emergency accidents. Add to this your normal items like your wallet, makeup, and a few extras, and a regular bag will do just fine. I have found that it is a good idea to keep things separated using Ziploc bags. Then if you have a dirty diaper while on the road, you can put the dirty one in an empty Ziploc and toss out. This helps to keep things clean and organized at the same time.
Another reason why you may want to ditch the diaper bag for a regular one is all the extra pockets. Regular bags have lots small pockets for the little things that many moms have to carry around during the day. You can also have a fashionable bag, instead of a bag covered in cartoon characters. I have also found that the regular bags are a lot easier and more comfortable to carry than the diaper bags. Before you decide to ditch the diaper bag entirely you will want to first go looking around for one that will serve your needs best.
One final last thing that many moms like is that you can have a different bag to match all of your outfits. Some moms still like to be somewhat fashionable when they go out with their new baby. So before you add a bunch of diaper bags to your baby registry it may prove to be beneficial to compare some regular bags to the diapers. This is something hat you don’t want to just do online, but in person at the store. I have found it a lot easier to go try the bags out and pick them in person. This will give you the chance to see the difference between the two options. So if you are expecting why not ditch the diaper bag and get a regular one.
