One choice that is particularly personal is the diaper bag decision. The diaper bag goes everywhere with you, and like your favorite handbag, oftentimes defines you. In the past seven years of being a mom, I’ve gone through a few diaper bags in my day, and honestly I’ve never been to in love with any of them.
Personally, I rather just stick all my baby gear in my everyday handbag. Diaper bags have never felt “right” on me.
This is why I’m completely IN LOVE with funktion. Yes, funktion. Funny name, awesome gear.
Funktion or “designer baby bits” as they like to call them, are essentially all the parts and pieces you need in a diaper bag, sans the actual bag. Designed and created by mom who believes that fashion doesn’t have to end once motherhood begins, funktion will help you keep your style, while still maintaining some sense and balance while out and about with baby.

And really, diaper bags with teddy bears, hearts, and pastel polka dots are just so, ugh. Just, no.
I’ve been using with my two year old (and soon to be newborn) the “mommassentials” set ($199), and have been so amazed at both it’s serious high quality and supreme function (no pun intended). I just grab the pieces I need, and go.
Funktion comes in many shapes and sizes. The “mommassentials” set has it all, but all pieces can be purchased separately, for a custom diaper bag fit.
If you go for it all, and splurge on the “mommassentials” set, you will receive:
Grab bag – also known as a “wet bag” for every thing dirty and gross.
Cosmetic Case – where mama keeps her lip gloss and other pretty little things.
Paci Purse - a place to store clean paci’s from everything gross.
Changing Pad – “the cutest way to handle a crappy situation”.
Wipes Case – because you can leave home without them.
Bottle Holder – *ahem* this bottle holder has a tassle.
Clutch – so cool you’ll use it even when you leave the kids home.
Friends, I seriously adore funktion and how fun and easy they’ve made keeping my style while being a new mom. And true to form, with so many awesome and successful companies, they also give back. Check out their giving back page, and see how your funktion product purchase helps out other moms around the globe.
