When it comes to sharing parenting responsibilities, diaper duty doesn't (and shouldn't!) discriminate.

We have a thing for diaper bags at LilSugar: the affordable options, the brand-new arrivals, the celebrity favorites, and the totes with a pop of color.

That's why we're crazy for these eight baby bags, all of which we'd carry even if we weren't also toting a little one. Keep clicking to find your favorite, just in time to put it on your holiday wish list!

We're excited to bring you a new post from mother and actress Tori Spelling! Every other week, we're bringing you the best parenting and lifestyle advice from ediTORIal by Tori Spelling, which is Tori's daily blog about everything from food and fashion to parenting and relationships. This week, Tori shares her favorite diaper bags.
As baby number four bakes in my belly, I'm having fun getting ready for his or her arrival. Even though this isn't my first rodeo, so to speak, there are a few things I like to start fresh with when each of my little ones arrives.
One of my favorites, of course, is a stylish diaper bag. Any practiced mom knows that baby bags take a lot of wear and tear, so a new one is always a welcome investment. With that in mind, I wanted to share a few of my favorites on the market right now. So, without further ado:
Gone are the days when you could spend hours playing with makeup at Sephora. It's hard enough to find a little alone time, let alone practice your former, pristine beauty rituals. Don't worry: you can still look your best with these six essentials. Just toss them in the diaper bag alongside the bottles and stay fresh-faced wherever you end up.
- Hair elastics: Sometimes mama just has to put her hair up and be done with it. If hair ties aren't already your newest wrist accessory, don't forget to pack a few in your diaper bag. Use them in an easy updo to switch up your look at a moment's notice.
- Multipurpose stick: Anything called "multipurpose" is a mother's dream. We absolutely cannot live without the NARS Multiple Stick ($39) for an easy, well-rested look. Try a neutral color like Maldives, and swipe the creamy formula on your cheeks, forehead, and lips for just the right amount of shimmer to achieve a healthy glow.
- Baby wipes: Since you're already carrying a pack of these for less glamorous reasons, put them to use beyond the changing table as makeup remover and freshening towelettes. They are far less expensive than beauty brand towelettes, and you'll always have them around to clean up a smudge and stay breakout free.
Stay stylish with a diaper bag that won't bust your budget. Just because you now have a baby in tow doesn't mean you have to lug around an unfashionable pastel nylon diaper bag decorated with rainbows and butterflies. For less than $100, you can have it all — pockets perfect for all of baby's things, washable material, and great design.
Warm weather calls for a spring in your step and lighter, brighter colors, so why not bring that attitude to the bag you carry every day. It's time to ditch the dark, inconspicuous diaper bag and attach a bold new one to your stroller. I'm drooling over Burberry's pricey new leather bag, but there are several other fun Spring bags that will carry you through Summer. Check out my favorite finds for beach, playground, and pool-going moms.
You've got the baby, the stroller, now you need the goods for your diaper bag. What to stash may seem like a daunting task, so we've streamlined the process for you. The below necessities are all you really need, and it's a good idea not to overstuff your bag to the point of it becoming a backbreaker (remember, you've also got a little person to tote around). As for the extras, pick and choose what's important for you.
- Diapers: Follow the rule of always bringing a few more than you think you'll need.
- Wipes: Stock up on travel-sized packages so that you'll always have some ready to go.
- Diaper Cream: Save any sample-size tubes that you get from the pediatrician or baby store, and keep them in your bag.
- Changing Pad: Most diaper bags come with them, so only purchase an extra if it's necessary.
- Change of Clothes: You never know when a diaper's going to explode or spit-up's going to become a mess.
- Sealable Plastic Bags: These become trash bags in a pinch.
- Bottle, Formula, or Snacks: Pack accordingly, depending on the length (or potential length) of your outing.
- Bottled Water: For you to drink, to use with powdered formula, or to rinse off any other surprises that may come your way.
- First Aid Kit: It can never hurt to be prepared . . .
- Toys and Other Distractions: You know your baby best! If there's a go-to stuffed animal or "lovey" that he or she can't live without, bump this up to the "necessities" category.
- Sling or Wrap: If your baby prefers to be carried, this may save tears when you arrive at your destination.
- Blanket: To serve as a shade, nursing cover, changing pad, or burp cloth in a pinch.
- Hand Sanitizer: If you're looking to streamline, wipes can do double-duty here. Otherwise, a little bottle doesn't take up much room.
