A lot of moms struggle with the idea of a diaper bag. If you already have a purse, do you really need a bag for your baby's things? Moms think they need to carry around their purse and a diaper bag. The thought of carrying around a purse AND a diaper bag sounds completely unnecessary. The best thing to do is to get a diaper bag that can hold both your things and your baby's. Here are the top 3 reasons why you NEED a diaper bag!
1. You can easily ruin your designer purse.
We all have that purse that holds a special place in our hearts. A purse that has been with us through it all. Don't ruin it with poopy diapers and spilled milk! A diaper bag is designed specially so you can wipe those messes clean so it looks like nothing ever happened. Imagine making a mess like that in your Kate Spade purse...let's just say tears will be shed. Having a diaper bag that you don't have to worry about ruining will be a worry lifted off your shoulders as a mom. You have kids, you don't need any more stresses!
2. You need a bag designed differently than a purse.
A purse has little to no pockets, which is fine for you when all you need to hold are keys and a wallet. When you have to pack diapers, wipes, bottles, snacks, clothes, toys and more you need more pockets and more space. Let's be honest, an organized diaper bag = happy mama. Most diaper bags have insulated pockets for your littles one's food, which is a must. What purse has that? Also, pockets on the outside are a lifesaver for quick grabs.
3. You need something hands-free.
The most important and best feature of a diaper bag is that it can be hands-free. A diaper backpack is the ONLY way to go when getting a diaper bag. We all feel like we never have enough hands to get things done, so holding a diaper bag is not an option. A diaper backpack makes carrying everything your baby needs so much easier and allows you to give your little one more snuggles. What mama doesn't want that?!
