10 Must-Have Spring Diaper Bag Alternatives

Ten years ago when I first became a mom I remember one thing — the horrible diaper bag selection. From cartoon characters to just a bulky hot mess covered in a teddy bear print. Yes, teddy bear. I was so is disgusted being the fashion student that I was — no way was I carrying one of those diaper bags. I opted for a tote, what I considered a diaper bag alternative. Back than Timi + Leslie and Petunia Pickle Bottom were some of the bags I could have used.

Now with 5 kids, I still go for a tote vs. a diaper bag. What can I say, it’s easy to throw everything in and go. But sometimes you have to gravitate towards a diaper bag when you head out the door. Earlier this week I actually shared just what’s inside my diaper bag. But it’s all about your style and preference as a mom. Some love the diaper bag look and style while others just can’t fit everything in there and would rather hit up the handbag department in Nordstrom. When you go for a larger bag or tote, you have room for baby stuff and your essentials too! Believe me — there are plenty of stylish diaper bag alternatives now! Thankfully. 

So go ahead, Momma — you need to get a brand new bag!
