If you’re a new parent, you absolutely need a diaper bag. It’s one of the necessary tools of the trade, but no one says the diaper bag has to look like…a diaper bag. Every day, you probably pass by backpacks and chic purses that are actually diaper bags in disguise. You don’t need a diaper bag that screams “this is for diapers!” Instead, you can be a stealthy stylish parent with the just-right, chic, practical, multipurpose diaper bag.
Luckily, we live in a glorious time for elegant kid stuff. Gone are the days when we were forced to schlep around with bags in cheesy patterns (hi, quilted trains and clowns motif). Nowadays, diaper backpacks in every chic style, color and material abound — and they don’t look remotely like diaper bags. Seriously. If you squint, you can almost imagine a hip, child-free lady tossing her bikini or laptop into one of these bad boys. In short: They’re cool.
But all the great options available are almost overwhelming. So we’ve done the research for you and rounded up the top diaper bags in disguise. Inside these beauties likely lurks a bottle of breast milk, a spit-up stained swaddle and 15 rumpled diapers. But outside, the bags are sleek, clean and Pinterest-perfect. Yep: These babies do the dirty work, but you’d never guess it.
