Soon to be Dad Searches For a Diaper Bag

Categorized: Diaper Bag | No comments

One thing that went through my mind quite often when my wife started talking about diapers was, okay I hope she is cool with a more neutral diaper bag. My wife and I are going to use cloth baby diapers so it is important to have a diaper bag that each of us can wear proudly.

We went to target to do our baby registry and they didn’t have a ton of diaper bag choices. The brand that Target has is Eddie Bauer. I was totally cool with the one that my wife chose. She chose a brown and black diaper bag that didn’t have any fancy bunnies or princesses on it. But I guess that makes sense because we are going to be having a boy.  My wife liked it because since the diaper bag has both brown and black in it you can wear it with almost any color. Brown and black seem to be pretty good staples around here anyway, so that worked out good.

Some things to consider when looking for a diaper bag. You want to make sure that it has enough space in it for what you are going to need. For example my wife and I are going to use cloth diapers and they take up a bit more space than your normal diaper would and also you can’t throw them away you have to put them in a separate bag and take them home and clean them. This isn’t that big of a deal and we are cool with it since we won’t be spending all that money on disposable diapers.

You also want to make sure that you have plenty of room for other things. For example, it is also nice to an ipod and headphones along for a walk and a beverage also. So its a good idea to have places for baby things such as bottles and toys but also don’t disregard your need for stuff as well.

I also looked at messenger bags to use as a diaper bag but I could not find any that were going to be big enough for our needs. I used a messenger bag in high school for my book bag and it worked out great for that but I think for us a messenger bag would have been too small especially for cloth diapers.

So my search has ended for a diaper and we got the Eddie Bauer one from Target. We are really happy with it so far, but that doesn’t say much since we haven’t had our baby yet. I will be sure and update you how it goes.
