FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) About Diaper Bags

On the go diaper changes are not always easy. Thankfully with the right diaper bag, you'll be able to store and quickly access all your baby essentials so you can enjoy an easier diapering experience when away from home. Not sure what to look for in a diaper bag? Here are the answers to some of the most common questions you may have.

What do I need to consider when buying a diaper bag?

Storage needs

As a first time parent, you'll be surprised how many items you need to carry around when you're out with your baby. A well-stocked diaper bag typically includes diapers, wipes, rash cream, changing pad, burp cloths, extra changes of clothing, nursing cover, bottles, pacifiers, toys, and snacks. As a result, you'll need to find a large enough diaper bag that suits your storage needs.

Intended use

If you don't want to carry both a purse and a diaper bag, you'll need to invest in a bag that has extra organizational compartments so you can store your wallet, keys, cellphone, and other daily essentials. You'll also need a bigger diaper bag if you plan on taking your baby on overnight or multiday trips.

Style

Who said a diaper bag needs to look like a diaper bag? Modern diaper bags are the perfect blend of function and fashion. Featuring chic styles and smart designs, modern diaper bags are designed to make changing on the go discreet.

What types of diaper bags can I choose from?

Messenger bags and tote bags are the most popular types of diaper bags. A tote resembles a handbag and comes equipped with a top handle or two. A messenger bag has a long strap that goes over your shoulder or across your body. Ju-Ju-Be offers a wide range of messenger and tote bags that cater to many tastes and styles.

What features should I look for in a diaper bag?

Pockets and compartment dividers

The perfect diaper bag has multiple pockets and internal compartment dividers so you can access your essential items quickly and easily at any time.

Versatile straps

Many tote bags come with a detachable messenger style strap for added versatility. Messenger straps can usually be adjusted so you can customize your perfect fit. Plenty of diaper bags also come with or are compatible with stroller strap attachments so you can hang the bag on the back of your stroller's handlebar.

Food storage compartments

Some bags come with insulated bottle holders and food storage pockets to keep drinks and snacks at optimal temperatures.

Fabric that's easy to maintain

Diaper bags are bound to get dirty. That's why you should find one that's easy to maintain. Many bags are now made with water- and stain-resistant materials to make cleanup effortless. Others feature antimicrobial lining to prevent the growth of bacteria, mildew, and mould.

Diaper bag accessories

Built-in change pads are often included and allow for simple, sanitary diaper changing anywhere. Wet and dry bags can also come in handy if you need to store soiled clothing, while an insulated lunch bag is perfect for keeping baby bottles cool and packed lunches warm.
