Tinseltown's hottest moms may have designer bags pouring out of the closets, but when they're out with their tots, they still have to carry diapers, wipes, and snacks. Channel your inner celeb with one of these hot-in-Hollywood diaper bags. There's a bag to suit every mom's needs and style, from the surprisingly practical to the ultimate in designer luxury.
A diaper change away from home isn't usually a pretty thing, but employ one of these stylish diaper pads and even the dirtiest job can look good . . . well, at least not so bad. Cool changing pads from Skip Hop, Ralph Lauren, Oshi Mat, and more are a great investment for mamas who like to keep their babies on the go and either don't want to lug around a huge diaper bag — or want a more substantial changing pad than the freebie version that often comes included with a diaper bag. Keep clicking for eight sleek, chic diaper changing stations.
If you're one of those mamas that's always on the go, then your diaper bag is for more than just baby. Space in the bag may be at a premium, but mama needs to stake her claim to at least one corner for herself. For a stress-free outing with baby, make sure to pack these five life-saving items for mommy next time you hit the streets with your lil one.
Sure, your black diaper bag looks chic and matches everything, but with Winter rapidly approaching, and bringing with it months of gray days, isn't it time to add a little color to your life? Our suggestion: pick up a bold, patterned diaper bag, guaranteed to make you smile every time you walk out the door with your bundled-up bundle of joy. There are tons of colorful diaper bag options out there — we're seriously loving all of Jonathan Adler's designs for Skip Hop — but we've picked our 10 faves, all fashionable and fun.

Prior to having Kiara, I always wondered why parents were lugging around this huge bag on top of having to push a stroller with a baby. I thought, "Seriously? Aren't you carrying just a little too much?" Boy was I wrong! Now that I have a child, I can totally relate! I always pack spares now. I learned my lesson! You never know when your child might dirty themselves. And trust me, it always happens!
So here's how my diaper bag looks. (Thank you mum for giving it to me!) It's from Kipling. It also comes with a changing pad too! It's funny because my step dad actually bought that bag for my mum without realizing that it was a diaper bag. She likes big chunky bags that's why!
The inner organizer piece that holds everything in place can be taken out, but I like that it has extra pockets to store other things like extra clothes, burp cloths, pacifier and bottle nipple wipes etc. The side pockets are the perfect size to put in our nappy cream as well as the milk powder storage container! Love it! Now that Kiara takes solids, I also carry her food in a container which fits perfectly in it too.
Here's my list of items I have in my diaper bag:
- 6 pieces of nappies
- Huggies Wet Wipes
- 2 bottles (1 for Milk, 1 for Juice) + Bottel warmer holder
- 4 extra pairs of onesies
- Pacifier & Nipple wipes
- Nappy Cream
- Disinfectant spray
- Yu Yee Oil (Cap Limau) or Minyak Telon in Lavender (This works wonders for wind! I always put it on her tummy!)
- Toys! Lots of Toys!

Time to trade in Summer's pastel and woven straw bags for something a bit more Fall-minded. Animal prints and patterned clothes are filling up department stores' clothing racks, and now they can be hanging from your stroller as well. We know you wouldn't carry the same handbag each day, so why not switch out your diaper bag with the change of season. With new arrivals from some hot designers — including a collaboration with Jonathan Adler — here are eight picks to spruce up your cooler-weather strolls!
This week I had a diaper bag disaster! I must not have correctly set up Audrey's sippy cup, and it spilled milk all over my bag. It wasn't just a little milk that I could wipe out of the water proof lining, I had a puddle in the bottom of my bag. I realized it was there when milk started to drip through the seams onto my feet. I knew my bag was ruined. It was only a matter of time before it began to smell like spoiled milk. I wasn't completely thrilled with my bag anyway, so I decided it was time to get a new one. So I was on the hunt for a new bag!
I had a few requirements that I was looking for. First, I wanted a lightweight bag. My last bag was heavy when empty, so it was terrible to carry when full, which it often was since it was kind of small. It could really only fit the essentials. So I was also looking for a bigger bag for times when I would need extra snacks or things like bathing suits and towels. Also, I like diaper bags because they have so many pockets! I love to keep things organized so I can find them easily. And of course, I want it to be cute!
First bag on my list to check out was the Petunia Pickle Bottom. So many people I know have this bag, I was sure I would love it. It has that inventive outside pocket that folds out to an instant changing station. But I ruled it out as soon as I picked it up, because it was so heavy with nothing in it! Next, I wanted to check out the Marc by Marc Jacobs bag. It is very large, and slightly heavy, but not too bad. It is obviously cute and I love the red color! The price is a little on the higher end, so I wanted to keep looking for a cheaper alternative, but kept this bag in mind.
You're never too young for your first Louis, or are you? After showing the world her customized Alexander McQueen diaper bag that arrived before baby Skyler's birth, Rachel Zoe is asking her fans for their thoughts on the lil one's new Louis Vuitton version. This afternoon Rachel tweeted, "Is Skyler to young to have his first LV? So MAJ for a new diaper bag! DIE! Thoughts? XoRZ"
It's the same bag Sandra Bullock was seen carrying with baby Louis last Summer — a personalized large Louis Vuitton Speedy tote, which costs a whopping $1,000! That's not the only bag the designer-draped tyke's mom uses to store his stuff. Just yesterday a friend shared a photo of Rachel Zoe's baby gear-stuffed Chanel purse, tweeting, "Did anyone else know that Chanel made diaper bags? LOL." Check out all of the designer duds lil Skyler's been sporting since he was born in March.
