I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my diaper bag. I get sooooo many compliments on it. It was a gift from my mother-in-law. I did register for a particular one, but I had no idea that she would buy it for me. My diaper bag resembles a purse. It doesn't really look like a diaper bag. It is cute and fun, but functional. There are many pockets inside. It came with a bottle holder, a changing pad, AND a wristlet. This was the best feature. When I go out without Allie (which is not too often) I just pull out the wristlet and off I go. No big bag to carry around. No switching purses (too much work). It's easy!
Before I was ever pregnant I would see moms (and sometimes dads) carrying around a Winnie-the-Pooh or some random baby themed gender appropriate diaper bag. I would NOT be one of the those moms. Just because you have a baby, doesn't me you loose your sense of style. Who care if your fashionable bag is carrying diaper, bottles and wipes. I like cute purses and bags, why would my diaper bag be any different?
