A diaper bag (or nappy bag) is a storage bag with many pockets which is spacious enough to carry diaper and all baby-related goodies while taking a short outing. Generally, the diaper bag is designed with adjustable shoulder straps to distribute the weight and free your hands up. Some modern diaper bags are even being engineered with rigid handles and even solid wheels. This is to facilitate the users to carry the baby more firmly and complete more tasks concurrently e.g. paying a cashier or using a mobile phone. It could greatly reduce lower back pain as well.
It was also noticed that diaper bag with brighter color is harder to lose and could heal or at least combat "baby blues". Vibrant colours could brighten the day and make you smile by just looking at the bag.
First-time parents are prone to buy small and impractical diaper bags, and subsequently purchase bulky backpacks or duffel bags as a substitute. In fact, all families are recommended to have two different sizes of diaper bags. For short trips, a small diaper bag works fine with a couple of diapers, some wipes and a change of clothing. For a whole day-out or an overnight, you need to bigger one to accommodate more supplies like full changes of clothing, snacks or meals, sippy cups, sunscreen, more diapers and other accessories for the days. On the other hand, diaper bag should be chosen with the designs that reflect daily routine of the parents. For parents that always on-the-go, Diaper Bag Backpacks and Messenger Diaper Bag are ideally designed for their travelling needs. Stroller Diaper Bags are more suitable for those stay-at-home moms. Daddy Diaper Bags could benefit dual-income families whereby the parenting responsibilities are usually shared more evenly.
Diaper bags are extraordinarily essential in a mother's everyday life after having a baby. It almost replaces the importance of mothers’ purse before and after their pregnancies. Without the essentials in the diaper bag, mothers will not be daring to step out of their house. Simply think of the great embarrassment if the babies throw up all of a sudden in a shopping mall, but you got nothing (diaper) to change in front of public? Hence, a mom must physically get ready for anything, e.g. sudden diaper change and feeding of baby.
