While the term “stylish nappy bag” might seem like an oxymoron to many mothers, there is such a thing. In fact, nappy bags have been transformed into stylish accessories and the only way you can tell that it’s a diaper bag is when you peek inside.
There are quite a few styles that incorporate khaki or camouflage colors and these are more oriented for daddy to carry around. For those fathers who are embarrassed to be seen with a pink bag with cute teddy bear prints on it, these “manly” nappy bags are definitely a step forward. You can find canvas nappy bags that come in neutral colors, leather trim, and metal buckles. No dad would want to refuse carrying a nappy bag now!
You can get a good nappy bag for as low as $40, but you can’t be too sure of its versatility. On the other hand, more expensive nappy bags guarantee you a more stylish look while assuring you that what you have is made of the highest of quality materials. It would be best to make a one-time investment on a stylish yet well-made nappy bag because you’ll be carrying it around more often than you think. In this case, you definitely get what you pay for.
About the most important thing to look for when choosing a nappy bag is not the style, however. Since you’ll be using that bag for months, you’ll want something that’s comfortable and easy to carry. If you’re looking for shoulder bags, make sure the straps aren’t too short or too long either. Another good alternative is to get a messenger bag style. These nappy bags have short handles for easy hand-carry while also featuring a longer strap for carrying low on your shoulders. Look for wide leather straps, which will ensure that the material stays strong yet, comfortable against your shoulder. Remember, you’ll be hauling a lot of stuff!
