Noa by Storksak

The Storksak Noa‘s bright, bold yellow color is quintessentially summer (though you’ll love it all year ’round!).  It’s so cheerful, you’ll find yourself smiling every time you see it, and its features will have you loving this diaper bag even more.  And yes, it is a diaper bag!  This is one diaper bag that doesn’t have the typical matronly feel – it looks more like a designer handbag.  The Noa is made from a coated canvas, making it super easy to wipe down and clean up.  Its large, boxy size will accommodate all the gear you could ever want to fit, and you have the option of using the dual tan leather over-the-shoulder straps, or a long, woven strap that can be used to wear the bag cross-body style, or attach to your stroller.

Is your diaper bag a black hole of baby stuff?  Do you dig around for ten minutes, searching for a pacifier, only to turn up 7 matchbox cars, 3 lip glosses, and an old, half-eaten pretzel?  Storksak has a solution!  One of our very most favorite features of the Storksak Noa is the mini organizer bag that comes along with it.  It fits oh-so-neatly inside the Noa’s large interior space, and its structured sides ensure that the inside of your bag stays perfectly organized.  The mini organizer has 6 different pouches along the outside, and one large space inside, with a zipper going across the top, and allows you a quick and easy way to store – and find – all your diaper changing supplies. 

We simply love how much we can fit in the Storksak Noa, and how much we can fit while staying organized.  If you’re the type of mom who likes being prepared for any kind of situation, you can rest assured that you can fit everything in the Noa, and actually be able to find it when you need it.  This diaper bag also comes equipped with a plush changing mat, insulated interior pocket, and an external pocket for your keys or cell phone.

 Slouch Tote By OiOi

Be the most stylish mom at all of your playdates this summer by trading in your outdated diaper bag for a beautiful slouch tote diaper bag from OiOi. Your friends won’t believe that the bag you’re carrying is dedicated to diapers and pacis. And you probably still can’t believe that a diaper bag has already become the most favorite bag that you’ve ever owned. When the babies are grown and carrying extra clothes around with you becomes a thing of the past, your OiOi slouch tote will stay by your side for years to come.

The slouch tote is made of the softest, most supple lamb’s leather that melts under your fingertips, guaranteeing years of love and the ability to age well. Toss this bag over your shoulder or clip on the detachable, adjustable cross-body strap for hands-free carrying. With soft gold accent metal, light colored OiOi branded jacquard inner lining, and protective metal feet on the base, the slouch tote is not only fashionable, but functional and sturdy. There’s plenty of space for all yours and your child’s essentials, with the multiple zip pockets, inner, open, elasticized pockets, and a key fob holder. It’s roomy, but not overbearing in size, perfect for all moms!

A diaper bag wouldn’t be complete without a few coordinating extras, so included with OiOi’s slouch tote are a plush changing pad, a small wet bag for transporting soiled items, a hardcover wipes case, and an insulated drawstring bottle holder. When pushing the stroller and carrying a bag becomes too much, simply clip your slouch tote onto the stroller handles with the fixed stroller straps for another safe and secure hands-free option.

Enjoy the chic and sophisticated side of motherhood, by allowing your diaper bag to reflect your great style!      


Ashley Diaper Bag by Perry Mackin

Perry Mackin is a mom-designed line of chic and functional diaper bags that are built to last with the functionality to make mom’s life a little easier. Inspired by the utility of motherhood, the Ashley Diaper Bag really has it all. 

The “Ashley” is a durable water-resistant nylon diaper bag available in beige, lilac and navy that hardly looks like a “diaper” bag. While the exterior is relatively simple, you’ll find that the inside is quite spacious with multiple pockets, including a side-zip compartment that is the perfect place for your cell phone or car keys.  It also includes an optional strap that can be extended for messenger-style carrying, as well as a changing pad that makes for fuss-free outings.

We’re so excited about this bag that we’re sure to be using it even after our kids are potty trained. 


SkipHop Grand Central Take-It-All Diaper Bag

For the mom who needs it all, and takes it all, she deserves a diaper bag that will (comfortably and beautifully) carry it all! The SkipHop Grand Central Diaper Bag, shown here in Black Stripe, is the perfect solution of a modern and stylish bag, that discreetly tucks away so many items at once. With 3 large, divided sections, you are sure to be able to carry everything needed for diapering, baby care, and mommy must-haves.

With two large and insulated bottle pockets on the outside, along with 2 outer zipped pockets, there is easy-access storage all around the outside of the bag. The inside features 3 divided sections; the first being the “mommy” section, with a cell phone pocket, a fleece-lined sunglasses pocket and a discreet zipped pocket for feminine essentials, the second, middle section is a huge section for baby items, with 2 large pockets for storage as well, and the third section, on the back of the bag, neatly stores the changing pad and includes a clear plastic zip pocket, perfect for a change of clothes when diaper situations get messy!

Treat yourself to this adorable, lightweight bag and you will never worry about fitting everything you need to take along with you, for a day trip or a whole weekend away!


Madison By Timi & Leslie

When you think of a diaper bag, you think of a large empty bag that’s able to hold a few diapers and more than half of your baby’s belongings, right? While that’s true, wouldn’t it be great if your diaper bag didn’t come empty, but instead was chock full of accessories and goodies that made packing the bag and living your life a bit easier? That’s what the folks over at Timi & Leslie thought of by bringing you the Madison 7-Piece Diaper Bag Set.

You’re not just getting a gorgeous, easy-to-clean, vegan faux leather satchel bag, you’re also getting 6 other amazing items that make packing this diaper bag a breeze!

  • The Madison works great as an over the shoulder bag, but there will come a time when you need your hands free, so just clip on the adjustable, cross-body strap when you need an extra “hand”, and unclip it when you’re done.
  • When you’re bogged down with kids, bags, and a stroller, just clip the matching stroller straps onto your Madison bag and stroller, and now there’s one less thing you have to worry about carrying.
  • Whether you’re transporting bottles or sippy cups, you want them at the right temperature, whether that’s warm or cold, so simply slip one into the insulated bottle tote that fits perfectly inside the Madison.
  • Our kids shouldn’t take up all the space inside our stylish diaper bag, so make the included clutch yours, and use it for your essentials. There are plenty of credit card slots inside and an interior zippered pocket, so you can easily use this as your purse.
  • No diaper bag is complete without a changing pad, and Timi & Leslie made theirs extra special, by including a front mesh pocket on the pad, perfect for storing diapers and wipes right where you need them.
  • As we all know, those diapers don’t always hold up to their name, so when you need a place to throw some dirty clothes, slip out the included zippered sac and toss them in.

As if that’s not enough, the Madison features a water-resistant, light-colored interior lining that’s perfect for finding anything you need, 3 exterior pockets, and 6 interior pockets, including a key fob for preventing mom-brain from attacking your keys.

Now that you’re experiencing diaper bag zen, go out and grab a Madison in one of three stunning colors and never buy another diaper bag again!
