diaper bag smackdown

I can't for the like of me remember my son's diaper bag. I can however remember his toddler bag which I had custom made with a ton of pockets and I loved that bag. Now that I am onto numero 2 I need a diaper bag again. A friend gave me one she didn't need anymore and so I have one for now but it doesn't hook to a stroller so that will be my back up bag for the car.

My diaper bag wish list:

  1. must hook to a stroller

  2. should match my stroller (red)

  3. lots of pockets

  4. trendy

  5. would like a backpack option for when my hands are full

So there you have it. I may be a little picky but hey, I have to tote this thing around for the next 1-2 years so I better LOVE it.

Here is what I have come up with so far. Click on the pictures to go to the diaper bag at diaperbags.com. All but one of them are located there and the site is fantastic for showing lots of pictures and details of their bags.

This 1st bag is by Skip Hop and it's the Uptown Duo Deluxe. I love all the pockets and it's the perfect size.

The second bag is the Skip Hop Studio Diaper Tote in black. I love that this bag doesn't look like a diaper bag. It even has insulated pockets for bottles. The only downside is that the handles are a little shorter than I prefer.

The third bag is the Ju Ju Be Lotus Lullaby Pack a Be. This one of the more expensive of the four at $117.98 but it does meet all my requirements because it's the only one that converts to a backpack. The down side is that there aren't any pictures of the inside of this bag on the website. I need to know what the inside looks like before I buy, ya' know?

And last but certainly not least I must add this fabulous bag by Storksak. My fashionista side LOVES it but once again there isn't any inside photos. It does however hook to a stroller and turn into a backpack. On sale right now for $122.99 but not returnable if you don't like it. Hmmm....

So there you have it. My tops 4 diaper bag choices. I will have to narrow it down soon so if you have one of these bags or another one you really love please share.

The first one, I have this bag---it is awesome love it. They also make a smaller one that hooks to the stroller like a saddle bag in the same print.

Thanks Seven Bells. I am actually leaning towards that bag.
