When you have a newborn, you acquire a lot more "stuff." You will need something to carry around all your new "stuff." The question is do you want to carry it all in a diaper bag that screams, "This bag is full of diapers and strained peas" or do you want to carry it all in a bag that says, "Just because I'm rocking this, doesn't mean I don't have style." The choice is yours. Fortunately, there are many types of bags on the market. If you choose the stylish route, you can pick this JJ Cole Swag Diaper Bag. It's functional, but can easily pass for a regular handbag. It has many organizational pockets, some of which are insulated. The shoulder strap is adjustable for your comfort. It's available in Silver or Gold.
If you choose the baby themed bag, you can choose this Disney Winnie the Pooh Baby Blue Gingham Diaper Bag. It will carry everything you need too. It's adorable and also has plenty of compartments and an adjustable strap. There is even a "dirty duds" bag included for messy accidents.
Each diaper bag will meet your needs. Ask yourself, what statement do you want to make with your bag?

I think I write about this product every Spring. This is the time of year when we start to open up our windows. If you live in a house where the windows are easily accessible to your toddler, you NEED window guards. I have had window guards on several of my second story windows for years. These guards withstand 150 pounds of pressure, yet remove easily with emergency release buttons. Don't be intimidated by the price tag. You are protecting the only item in your house that is truly priceless.
