How Much Does a Diaper Bag Cost?

 
 average costRange: $12-$100 
post Post   Comments (1)  

Diaper bags come in a variety of options, including totes, messenger bags, slings and backpacks. They're used to carry around all the things a baby needs throughout the day -- not just diapers. There should be convenient places to store baby bottles, clothing, toys, and other essentials. They should be comfortable to carry, easy to access and easy to clean.

Typical costs:

  • Thanks to the celebrity baby boom, diaper bags have become as much a status symbol as a means of lugging around baby gear. At the high end of the spectrum is Storksak[1] . Brad Pitt has been seen carrying the Jamie Unisex in black, while Angelina Jolie has been spotted with the Gigi in chocolate. Both retail for $198.
  • Still, it's not necessary to break the bank to get a fashionable, functional diaper bag.
  • Target[2] carries a wide variety of brands ranging from $12-$100.
  • Wal-Mart[3] offers a number of affordable bags, totes and backpacks for $15-$60.
  • Meanwhile, bags at Kohl's average $25.

What should be included:
  • In addition to the bag itself, many diaper bags come with insulated pockets, a removable bottle holder, removable bags for separating clothing, a changing pad and a wipes case.
Shopping for a diaper bag:
  • Shopping for a diaper bag is comparable to women shopping for a handbag or men shopping for a day pack. With so many options, it shouldn't be hard to find one that suits your personal sense of style, be it cute, sporty or chic.
  • Tutti Bella's best seller is the Oi Oi Charcoal Dot Messenger Diaper Bag, which retails for $110.
  • Diaper Dude's[4] simple Black Bag sells for $55.
  • Graco's sporty red and black Fiesta model is priced at $30.
  • For a practical bag under $20, consider the Jeep Tote in pink, available from both Target[5] and Wal-Mart[6] .

Brand: ColumbiaStore: Babies R Us
I like Columbia's green bags and black bags because they seem more gender-neutral. The bags are pretty standard and have pouches to keep milk cold, and come with a small changing pad. The one surprise is that we needed a few -- we keep one in the car filled with spare diapers and wipes just in case we forget to bring a diaper bag during an errand.
