How to choose the right baby diaper bag

Why do you need a baby diaper bag? If you're not yet a parent and you're just waiting for the baby, you probably ask yourself this question. If you're already having a child you know the answer. The little precious baby, although so small, needs so many things, just for a half hour walk in the park, like: diapers, napkins, bottom cream, baby nose cleaner, feeding bottles, one for formula and one for tee or water, formula container and hot water container ( if you can't breastfeed ), two or three pacifiers, some clothes in case something goes wet or dirty, a blanket in case it gets cold, and some other items, depending on every baby's needs.
So, you need to have a bag to store all those items and it should look good and have functionality, and have a great quality, as the baby diaper bag is one of the most used baby products and it should last at least one year in a proper condition.

The first and most important aspect of a baby diaper bag is its functionality. Don't just choose the most stylish diaper bag before checking if it has what you and your baby need.
It should have a big storage possibility, even if not oversized, and to make sure it is a well organized diaper bag you need to look for the number of pockets it has, many of these bags have thermo-protected pockets, designed especially for the cold or warm bottles your baby needs. Another detail that suggest a good functionality of a diaper bag is the fabric out of which it is made. The best fabrics for these bags are those which are waterproof , as some liquids may spill and if it's not impermeable than it's no good.

The quality of the diaper bag is also important: check the fastener, the zippers, or if it has flaps, how easy are they to open. Also look at the fabric details, because there are some organic diaper bags with a waterproof inside, which are proper for baby items.

Baby Diaper Bags for twins

Do you need a gigantic or just huge baby diaper bag, as you're having twins and you need twice as many items? Or you just happen to be a happy mother of two small children close in age, that need a lot of things you have to carry around?

A large, oversized baby diaper bag will be the best aid for all the needs your kids have. It should have a long strap to fit over shoulder or the baby's stroller and it should look stylish as well.

Things you need in your baby diaper bag

Each time you and your baby go out of the house for a walk in the park or shopping, you must have with you a few things needed for baby care. This is the reason you need to have a baby diaper bag always on you.

You must have a small baby changing mat and other useful things.

Here is a list of those required to be placed in your bag:

- 2-3 disposable diapers (nappies)

- a diaper or diaper Flannel Waterproof 

- wet wipes

- dry wipes

- bottom cream

- tea bottle

- bottle of milk if not breastfeeding

- milk powder

- some boiled and cooled water; eventually put in a thermos to keep warm until meal preparation

- napkins

- pacifiers

- a complete set of clothes because there's a chance you may need to change your baby from head to toe

- blanket (if the weather breaks and the baby is not dressed too well)

- toys that can be hung from Cart

What type of diaper bag should I buy?

First you should think of functionality and then stop for a minute and think of how you use to dress up, what is your style, what type of colors you like, what type of stroller you have and how much you need to carry around. You should also take into consideration a baby diaper bag that has accessories for bottles, because even if you breastfeed, there will come a time when you will feed your baby formula or cow milk from bottles.
