So, where do you start your search?
Factors for Choosing the Right Diaper Bag:
Practicality - This factor has many subfactors. Will it stain easily? How do you clean it? Is it well made or will the seams come lose after one big trip to the in-laws? Are there enough pockets to organize all the baby accoutrement? Are all those pockets easily accessible or will you be fishing around for a pacifier for 10 minutes while your new infant screams her beautiful head off?
Style - Some may disagree with this factor, but even if you think style is frivolous when it comes to diaper bags, no one wants to carry a hideous bag (diaper bag or otherwise). Perhaps the newest Marc Jacobs diaper bag isn't for you, but you don't necessarily want a Winnie the Pooh, vinyl disaster.
Each of the following diaper bags have the trifecta of goodness: cost (everything under $150), practical (multiple interior and exterior pockets) and style (oh yes).
Versa diaper bag by Skip Hop for $70.
Baby bag by Vera Bradley for $99.
Waxed canvas diaper bag by Barnacle Bags for $112.
Satchel diaper bag by JJ Cole for $70.
