Changing Diaper Bags
Diaper bags offer storage space for items that are indispensable for babies and parents while out and about. Several compartments of different sizes can hold accessories such as diapers, a change of clothes, food or baby bottles and pacifiers. Particularly important for hygienic diaper changing: a waterproof and easy-clean changing mat. Convenient for adults: every diaper bag features a compartment or pouch for keys, sun glasses, newspaper or cell phone.
1.Not without her
On the move with your baby or toddler, but without a diaper bag? This is, in actual fact, an impossibility. Spare diapers, wet wipes, a changing mat, etc., simply will not fit into your handbag. A diaper bag is an essential part of every new parent’s wardrobe. But they are far from just a necessity – they come in an enormous range of shapes, colours, sizes and styles, for him and for her, or in a unisex design.
2. Special bags for special uses
In the world of bags, the diaper bag is a real specialist. Its inside is divided and adapted in such a way that the bag is perfectly equipped to meet the needs of both children and parents. There is plenty of space here for everything a baby or toddler could need while on the move. In addition, its numerous inner pockets are designed with the right shape and size to store diapers, spare clothes and more. Diaper bags are very versatile, too: After all, they have to cater for toddlers‘ needs as well as babies‘!
3. Checklist: Please read before making your purchase
There are a huge range of different diaper bags on offer, tailored to meet the different tastes of parents, as well as their varying needs and requirements: There are diaper bags available in the style of hobo bags, tote bags, messenger bags, shoulder bags, and backpacks – so everyone is bound to find their favourite style.
Then there are travel diaper bags. These are excellent for packing a baby’s entire luggage in for a short trip – when visiting the grandparents, for example. There are even diaper bags designed to meet the needs of parents of twins, triplets and more – the so-called ‘twin diaper bags‘.
Within all of these sub-categories there is an enormous variety of styles, colours and designs – from the sporty diaper bag to the designer bag to the dad’s diaper bag, designed especially for men. Before deciding which diaper bag to buy, it is extremely important to determine which style will best suit your own, individual needs.
But there are also certain aspects that need to be considered when buying a changing diaper bag: These are quality and functionality. As a general rule, diaper bags are used every single day – at least, they are during a child’s first two years. That means the one you choose must be of very high quality. What this means is that its materials are made to last, even after constant use.
You should also be able to place a good diaper bag on the floor at the playground. That means its materials should either have dirt- and moisture-resistant materials, or be washable – and that goes for inside as well as out. Finally, when buying a diaper bag it is important to take note of the accessories that come with it: Does it come with a changing mat, bottle warmer and wet pocket included? Some diaper bags also have attachment hooks for your pram, so you can use your diaper bag as a buggy bag, instead.
4. The right time to buy
A changing diaper bag will accompany parents from their very first outing with their baby. That makes the diaper bag part of the standard equipment needed for a child. But because first-time parents generally lack the experience of what makes a great diaper bag, it is recommended that you start looking into this as soon as possible, and talk to other parents about it.
