When my kids were little, I wanted a stylish diaper bag that didn’t scream I’M A DIAPER BAG. I ended up getting something that worked, but wasn’t pretty. I’m so thankful Thirty-One Gifts sent me some of the adorable bags that are the perfect cute baby bags your friends will envy. I have tips to help you find the right baby accessory bags for your parenting needs.
finding the right baby accessory bags
Yes, that title is plural. Sometimes you have long trips where you will need lot of things for your little one. And sometimes, you will need less. Having a larger bag is important for that baby stuff. (diapers, wipes, change of clothes, blankets, more clothes, bottles, toys, snacks, and on and on).
You then have those quicker trips to the grocery store, that require a smaller bag for just an hour or so to get what you need. It’s really everything you need in the larger bag, but a smaller quantity.
You need lots of pockets to hold all those little things your child is going to need or you might need.
baby bag items you need:
- Do not take your diaper cream, wipes, blankets that you use at home. Have separate travel items for your travel bag.
- Keep your bag stocked and ready to go at all times. You’ll never worry or run out of items.
- Wash the blankets in your bag weekly (or sooner if needed)
- Use cloth diapers as burp cloths as they are cheaper and are probably going to get stained anyway. 🙂
- wash the toys you have in the bag weekly or as needed.
- you can never have to many wipe
- keep a set of spoons in the bag to feed the kiddo.
- Use air tight containers to keep snacks fresh and from spilling
- pacifiers – need to have 1-2 in the bag
- empty zip bag gallon size to put dirty items in that need to be washed.

I have found that the Super Swap It Pocket works great to have items you need to transport from one bag to another. You can put everything you need in it and it fits great into the Take Two Diaper Bag or Take The Day Diaper Bag. This works great if you don’t have multiples for each bag and can easily transfer the essential diapers and wipes from bag to bag.
The Take The Day Diaper Bag by Thirty-One is the perfect every day diaper bag. It’s not huge and has lots of pockets, inside and out. It even has a thermal zip pocket for those things you want to keep cool. Zip pockets, magnetic pockets and cinch side pockets (14 total pockets). It’s the best little bag for your little ones. It’s available in different prints for you to choose from. Best of all, you can get it personalized just for your family. And you know I love to have more than one use for a bag. This is an excellent travel bag for your family once your no longer need it as a diaper bag. So many different pockets, allows you to place all your necessities for your travel in one bag. Perfect for long trips when you have to take everything. I love that bags can be versatile; not only for new parents, but anyone who traves will love this too!
Have you seen the Take Two Diaper Bag? This one I’m really excited about (and my kids are grown!) This one is large and in perfect for longer trips. Or maybe you have more than one child you need items for, this works great. It has pockets (15 in total), to store everything you need. the bonus and reason I love this bag, straps to wear it like a back pack. Yes! I can keep my hands free or I can use the handles and carry it. This bag can also be personalized and you can use it for yourself after the kids no longer need it. We use it to carry our carry-on items on the airplane. Laptops, snacks, magazines, you name it. Perfect gift for those who travel with or without kids too.
There are beautiful pillows you have to have personalized. The Statement Canvas Pillows are 18×18 in size (shown in charcoal) These are a great gift for those who may have everything they need. Adding the final touch and memento with the family or baby’s name with a cute image as well. So many beautiful choices, you will want to get one for yourself!
