Ultimately, you would want to opt for a Bag with the smart design of having appropriate amount of pockets and compartments so you don’t have to go through the entire content of you Nappy Bag just to get the dummy out, when it’s needed quickly.

Look for a Baby Bag that has designated Baby Bottle compartment with insulation. Not only it will keep the bottle at the right temperature but will also help to avoid spills by keeping the bottle upright.

Make sure your chosen Diaper Bag has sufficient storage capacity, especially if you have twins or another older child. Another important feature is the padded shoulder straps so the Bag is comfortable for you to wear when its fully packed.

And lastly, choose a Bag that will suit your Style and Personality, the one you will be able to dress up or wear casually everyday.
