The history of diaper bags

The diaper bag has truly become every parent’s lifesaver for those much-needed trips out of the house. This medium or even large bag helps organize all of your baby’s necessities, preparing parents for any and all possible adventures, as long as you fill it up after a day at the park. In the past, the bag was often complemented by medium-sized sacks, backpacks or totes, but in recent years the bag’s design has become intricate and well-organized with multiple compartments and washable interiors.

In a single bag that can easily fit under your pram or carried stylishly on mom or dad’s shoulder, you’ll find a clean, convenient place for diapers, wipes, a change of clothes, baby formula, allergies and toys. Your baby’s bag can even provide great convenience for working parents, as many now have a suitable bag for their laptop. Another incredible luxury of the diaper bag is the folding “table” for changing diapers. This easy-to-clean changing pad will provide a soft and especially hygienic place to change a diaper without worrying about finding a bathroom or needing your car. Mom or dad can easily wipe away germs with a baby wipe and put away the changing pad, making parents and baby very happy and ready to go.

In recent years, we’ve seen great designers like Stella McCartney (for LeSportsac), Prada, Burberry and Louis Vutton really change the look of a classic baby bag. The designers have explored many textiles such as denim, leather and nylon, choosing to make the exact motif of the bag sublime to the average eye. Most keep a classic color and pattern that no longer screams “I’ve got diapers in!” Celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Heidi Klum and Sarah Jessica Parker carry some of the most popular bags on the market today. These designer bags are Storksak designs, Nest Whipstitch leather bags and Mia Bossi bags.

Almost every bag designer has made their mark on the kind of bag that mom and even dad sling on their shoulders. Your child’s bag design alone has really made great strides in comfort, style, and organization. Whether she wants a classic, brightly colored, sweet print bag or a chic, quiet, natural-looking designer bag, she’s sure to find exactly what he wants.
