Sponsor: The Evolution of the Diaper Bag

   Please note: I wrote this post while participating in a campaign by Pishposh Baby and will receive compensation to thank me for my time. All views and opinions with regard to the products or company itself are my own and were not influenced, nor reviewed, by the company prior to posting.

       Being a mom has had a big rise in the impact it is making for baby products. No longer are moms the ones who rarely get out of the house. We do not sit at home all day darning socks and yelling at the children and wiping our hands on aprons. We are a new generation of moms, what I like to call the Next Generation of Moms. I happen to be a Next Generation Stay At Home Mom. However, whether you stay at home or go to work or have some sort of schedule in the middle such as work part time or work at home you will find as a mom that a diaper bag is an extremely important item. One that has without a doubt been the staple item for the next generation of moms and dads!
      We are tired of the giant, ugly and in some cases, not made very well type of diaper bag. It used to be a bag that you just carried and it was usually pink or blue or sometimes green and it was very bulky, usually ripped easily and did not always even make it through the first year of baby's life. However, the next generation of parenting has realized how important a diaper bag really is. We know that literally on one hand is baby and on another is the diaper bag. We no longer want frumpy, ugly bags that barely make it through the first year. We want a versatile, durable and good looking diaper bag that will make it for at least a few years with one child if not make it until we decide to expand our families.
      Many moms want a stylish diaper bag. We have to carry it all the time. We usually also make the diaper bag our purse. You know how big of an industry women's purses are it does not take a marketing expert to realize that women want a stylish diaper bag. We do not want to be punished just because we are a mom. We do not want to not be taken seriously because we have a old and beat up diaper bag on our shoulder. Also, what about dads? Many dads have diaper bags now as well. Some parents even have a dual diaper bag where they make sure it works for either mom or dad to use all day. Then, there are some men who have daddy diaper bags as well. I have to admit in our house we have had multiple diaper bags. We started with an over the shoulder tote while Xavier was a newborn, then we progressed to the backpack when he was sitting up and crawling, and now that he is a toddler we are on the messenger type bag. All three bags came in handy for different reasons at different times.
     If you are looking for that perfect diaper bag to suit all your family's needs you need to click on over to Pishposh Baby! They are your online stylish source for all your baby item needs. They have all of the new and modern baby gear at very reasonable prices. If style, function, versatility and durability are on your list for a diaper bag they definitely have a good assortment of diaper bags for you to choose from.
       When you browse through all the different types of diaper bags you will see how far they have evolved compared to the bulky ones of the past. For instance this simple messenger style diaper bag, the Skip Hop Dash Messenger Diaper bag in Sequins is similar in style to what the old diaper bags looked like except that it is made from better material to make it very durable, it has many compartments and a clip to make it versatile and it comes in a cute pattern for boy or girl, mom or dad.
     If you have an older baby and you need your arms free to carry baby or you need to put a baby carrier in the front you can use a backpack diaper bag. We use our backpack diaper bag very often. It is great for trips to the zoo, aquarium, around town or even hiking. Plus, if you travel with baby this is a great option as well. The new diaper backpacks come in many different shapes and sizes. If you are looking for a fun and stylish backpack you should definitely check out the Petunia Pickle Bottom Boxy Backpack in Misted Marseille. It is not only adorable but it is very handy to have all the bottle and pacifier compartments, and the extra diaper compartments that have water-resistant lining.

   As you can see diaper bags now come in a wide array of shapes, sizes and styles. You now have the freedom to choose what works best for your family. Whether it is just about style like the Petunia Pickle Bottom Sashay Satchel in Flowering Firenze or
if you need a bag for a specific function, such as the Mutsy Fun Seat Beach Bag, which is great for holding all your beach gear and keeping it separate from your clothing items.

The diaper bag has definitely evolved into the "must have" for new parents. We no longer will settle for just any diaper bag we want lots of options in a diaper bag so we can be sure to get the diaper bag that is just as unique as the baby it is going to represent.
    Be sure to take your time shopping for a diaper bag and even consider waiting a few months after baby is born to really find out what types of bags work for you. Be sure it is something you know you are comfortable with and that is durable. You have enough to worry about when making an outing with a baby, such as food, diapers, wipes, extra clothing, toys, etc. The last thing you should be worried about is your diaper bag. It should work to make your life easier so that at the end of the day you had a wonderful outing with your baby and you were able to focus on quality time together.
