Diaper bags have come a long way. For a few years after first starting this blog, I would publish a most expensive baby item post that was very popular. It included a list of the top most expensive diaper bags.
Even those were not as cool and hip as the options we have now. Here are seven sophisticated, chic, stylish and fabulous baby bags that are so gorge that they’d be marvelous to wear after baby no longer needs a diaper bag and to even keep as a heirloom item that you use for later pregnancies or even pass down. Yes, this can happen! Check out my faves:
One of my faves is Kate Spade’s New York Harmony baby bag. It is so pretty and classic. The simple black with tan trim is fabu. I also love the smooth nylon material which makes it easy to clean. The silhouette is classic in that it can match with your wardrobe and like most diaper bags, it comes with a changing pad and retails $298.
Logo and monogram bags are timeless and one bag that is also a status symbol is the original Gucci diaper bag. This beige fabric and leather bag was a staple among high society women. It’s deep with plenty of inside pockets and a ruched side pockets to hold baby bottles and diaper wipes and other items you might want instant access too. It is great for all sizes of women cause the draps drop 17.7 inches. It retails at a hefty $1,150 hence why the rich moms love it so.
I just absolutely love the practicality of the Skip Hop Chelsea Diaper Backpack because it can double as a weekender or a casual bag for outings and errands-running. It has a drawstring closure which is great for getting into when you’re hands are full, but also comes with clip on shoulder straps…because sometimes, you need straps. It too comes with a cushioned changing pad and is just $100! A total steal!
Another sleek minimalist bag can be found in Babymel’s Grace Diaper Bag. It has a built-in insulated zipper bottle pocket. Winning! It keeps fluids warm or cool fo up to 4 hours, the manufacturers say. It’s also funcitonal because it is made of polyurethane and can easily be wiped clean. It also has a great price point at $90!
I just love how cosmopolitan and metropolitan Ju-Ju-Be’s BFF Legacy Diaper bag is. I got a chance to check this stylish and smart bag which is one of the latest of four new styles/prints out: The Navigator. It is very pretty. The hardware is pretty sturdy and there is loads of room inside this baby! There is a clip to hold a key chain and lots of interior pockets including a sleeve for a mobile phone so it is easy to whip out when it rings but still insulated from all the other stuff so it doesn’t get moisture on it. Also, because it is inside the bag, it cannot be pick pocketed in a crowded location. The bag is great for fighting germs too. It has Agion antimicrobial lining to inhibit the growth of odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew. And, cleaning the diaper bag is easier, thanks to a Teflon fabric protector that helps repel stains. Use the backpack diaper bag when you want the comfort of ergonomically curved and padded shoulder straps, and the convenience of multiple zippered pockets to stow all of your baby’s essentials. This Ju-Ju-Be backpack has two exterior insulated bottle pockets with Thinsulate to keep items warm or cold.
The easy-to-reach Mommy pocket, featuring a diapers and wipes pocket, on the front of the bag helps moms and dads do quick changes when necessary. There’s also a memory foam changing pad included in the back panel zipper compartment to aid in the process of changing your little one.
The 11.5-inch opening of this compartment is also suitable for holding tablets, small laptops or magazines. Stow your phone in the cell phone pocket, and put away small items like sunglasses or a digital camera in the convenient top storage pocket. Wash this backpack diaper bag as needed in the washing machine, and then let it air dry.
It’s an amazing bag! And it too sells in a great price point at about $180.00 for all you get in this fab bag!
- Another super chic option is Timi & Leslie’s Charlie Diaper Bag. This bag is made of water-resistant faux leather and it stands out because it also comes with a zippered sac for storing soiled baby clothes and keeping them away from your fresh stash inside. It also has lots of exterior and interior pockets. It’s just $159.99 which is a decent price. I could definitely see one wearing this after baby grows up even!
Finally, the cream de la creme is this gorgeous Burberry Mason Leather & Check Baby Bag. That signature pattern is the hallmark of this British designers’ products. This tote is in a classic shape and is quite the sophisticated piece! This bag is imported from Italy and retails at $1,495 but it’s worth it! Look how gorgeous it is!
