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.

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.
