How to choose the right diaper bag
This large bag will replace your handbag and will be your new daily ally. But you can't use just any bag!
This bag will accompany you for at least two years, or even more, so it is essential to make the right choice. Yes, this big bag filled with diapers, creams, bottles, cuddly toys.... In short, your future best friend!
But then which diaper bag to choose? What is the ideal size of a changing bag?
You may have thought about getting a classic bag? But a real maternity bag will save you a lot of time. And time is essential when you have children.
Several criteria are to be taken into account to choose the right diaper bag.
First of all, there is no perfect diaper bag that will fit everyone. Everyone has different tastes, different expectations... It will also depend on your lifestyle, if you are used to going out for walks, if you regularly go on vacation... And inevitably, with a baby, your lifestyle will have to change a little, but you will still be able to enjoy yourself from time to time!
Let's get back to our purpose, here is a small list of important points to choose your changing bag:
You will find changing bags of all sizes, large, small, medium. Think about what you will put in it. By the way, you can read our article on the essentials to put in your changing bag.
The diaper bag will need to contain a lot of accessories and spare stuff. And yes, with a baby there are lots of "just in case" items to take along!
So go for a bag with storage. A large space to put a changing mat, bottles, snacks, diapers, bibs, spare parts...
If you are the "organized" type (and you are strongly advised to be a minimum organized), choose a bag with inside pockets and/or outside pockets. Simple pockets for easy access to "emergencies", like a pacifier for example, and zippered pockets to store a used bib for example, so you don't get it mixed up with the rest of your clean belongings.
You will also need a large central space for everything you will use regularly: diapers, blanket, change of clothes...
Depending on the size, your diaper bag can accompany you to the maternity ward for the birth of your child. You will be able to use it as a maternity suitcase. If you have not yet seen our video to make your maternity suitcase, here it is!

What is a practical bag? A practical diaper bag is a bag that doesn't take up too much space, is easy to adjust and can be taken everywhere.
Preferably take a bag with adjustable handles. You can wear it as you like: on the shoulder, over the shoulder or even attached to the stroller. And we know how practical that is!
A practical maternity bag is also a machine washable bag! Don't forget that this bag will follow you everywhere, you and your baby, you will surely have to wash it many times!
A detail that can also be important: choose a light bag. Remember that you will be carrying this bag daily, so choose bags made of natural materials such as cotton or linen that are light and resistant.
Being a mom doesn't mean letting go, quite the contrary! It's a new stage in your life, and your style still counts!
So choose a bag that visually pleases you, a bag that makes you fall for, that reflects your personality and your tastes.
