Diaper Bags

Before I even got pregnant, I somehow got signed up to receive free issues of American Baby magazine.

A piece of advice: if you are at all prone to baby fever, don't do that to yourself. It just makes it ten times worse.

But then again, if you have baby fever, the first thing you would do is sign up for the free baby magazine subscription that is dropped in your lap, so this warning is pointless really. I know that.

But I digress . . .

In one of the issues that came out before I got pregnant, they had an article about all the different styles of diaper bags that are available to today's mothers. There aren't any limitations anymore - you can buy a diaper bag in any shape, size, color, or style.

As I looked at my future options, I realized right away which style I would be going for. I really liked the diaper bags that didn't look like diaper bags. They looked, in fact, like fashionable purses instead. I figured that would be a great option for a diaper bag, because then when my kids were grown and I didn't need a diaper bag anymore, I would still have a cute, purse-like bag that I could use for other things.

Nevermind the fact that these diaper bags were designer diaper bags that weren't exactly cheap - I decided then and there that I had to have a just such a diaper bag if and when I had a baby.

Honestly, I never would have been able to justify spending the money on such a pricey diaper bag, but then . . . I won a giveaway for credit to an online store, and I knew exactly what I would spend it on!

So, several months ago I purchased this diaper bag, the Sweet Pea bag from Amy Michelle. And I love it!



It comes with a handy little changing pad, internal and external pockets for bottles, stroller attachments, multiple compartments, and a quick-release pacifier holder! It's pretty fabulous. Here I am modeling it:



It's also fairly large, but a friend of mine gave me another fabulous Carter's diaper bag that's smaller for those quick trips to the store.



Cute, no?

With not one, but two great options, I'm pretty much set in the diaper bag department!

Now I just have to figure out what exactly to put in them . . .

CUTE! Diaper bags are the bane of my existence right now. I have only found one store here that carries them and all they have are ones that could have been MY diaper bag 23 years ago! I'm hoping someone from the States "gifts," us one so I don't have to settle for one with a creepy arabic speaking bunny or bear on it, ha!

Callie, you are so cute! I smiled reading this post. LOVE your diaper bags! We have the larger version of your smaller one & love it, the inside wipes out so nicely and I just melted when I saw the little silver baby buggy for the first time :)
I love having a large & a small diaper bag - so helpful!

Fabulous! They both look non-diaper baggy.

To be honest, I put a lot of thought into what diaper bag I wanted, and I am on month 3 of being a mommy and hardly EVER use it! The first few weeks when we had to constantly go for checkups it was handy to put my nursing apron, a paci, a bottle, diapers, wipes, and a change of clothing in. Now, the only time it is really handy is for church since it lasts several hours. But going to the store doesn't last long enough to require anything from the bag. I kind of wish I had known this before! But it will be good for later when I need to bring toys and stuff with us. Right now I can basically throw a paci, diaper, and a wipe case in my regular bag and go.

I think the most fun is picking it out and thinking of things to fill it with!
