The Best Don’t Break-the-Bank Baby Bags

By Amanda Orr

Let Heidi Klum and Angelina have their super-pricey diaper bags. Stylish moms needn’t take out a home equity loan to find a chic tote. Designers at all price points have now finally realized that you don’t have to have a changing pad trailing down your back just because you need to tote baby supplies. Today’s baby bags are increasingly designed to take on the dual role of fashion statement and makeshift changing table. Here are some of the best of the bags for spring that’ll have you runway-ready…even while sporting some pureed peas on your shoulder.


Re-Run Stroller Bag by Fleurville, $69.95
No, this bag isn’t named after the 70’s sitcom icon. Rather, it reflects the hippest new material for baby bags – recycled water bottles! It’s enviro-friendly and naturally, it's waterproof. You may be weighed down by your baby, but at a sleek 12 ounces, never by this baby bag.


Boy and Girl Schlepp Bags by Trumpette, $75
They make the best baby socks out there and now, Trumpette is calling it like it is: it’s not a baby bag… it’s really more of a schlepp bag. These totes stand up to their name at 17" x 13" x 6, made of spill-proof plastic. And you can call out the gender of that little bundle, too; the front reads either "boy" or "girl."


Mocha Mint Classic Tote by JP Lizzy, $ 98
Want to go into stealth mom mode? This bag’s for you. Large enough to carry any possible baby need, yet small and stylish enough to disguise your carrier for a day’s worth of diapers as a crisp tote a la Kate Spade. Includes a coordinated changing pad and cosmetic bag, bottle pockets and a wipeable liner.


Bebe Stroller Tote by Dante Beatrix, $110
You don’t need to speak French to figure out what this bag’s all about. An adorable baby face with the word "bebe" adorns this tres chic bag. The one-two punch of continental style with American thrift makes this whimsical bag a smart choice. Includes two stroller clips, multiple internal and external pockets, and of course, a changing pad.
