Primary Diaper Bags

A diaper bag will be your primary accessory for the foreseeable future -- fortunately, there are many stylish and highly functional options. If your baby will spend a lot of time in the stroller, buy a bag that is designed to hang on the stroller handles. If you plan to regularly wear a front baby carrier, a backpack is a nice counterweight. If the diaper bag will be handed off between mom and dad, choose the color and design accordingly. Alternatively, consider his and hers bags.

Skip Hop Duo Deluxe
Skip Hop Duo Deluxe

$54

The Skip Hop Duo took the diaper bag market by storm just a few years ago as a shoulder-to-stroller bag, with its thoughtful styling, handy compartments and durable materials. The Duo is the perfect everyday bag for city dwellers and others who spend a lot of time strolling. The open top means you can drop things in and have oversized items popping out without a flap getting in the way.

Skip Hop Dash Deluxe

$65

The messenger design of the Skip Hop Dash makes it an ideal choice for an everyday bag, whether using the stroller or a baby carrier. The Dash works better than the Skip Hop Duo as a messenger bag thanks to the top flap, although some prefer the open access of the Duo.
