Fold-out changing pad. Imported. Designer About Burberry:Thomas Burberry opened his shop in 1856, establishing himself as the go-to purveyor for outdoor apparel. His coats, constructed from the water-resistant, gabardine fabric he invented, would earn Burberry the honor of outfitting trench-fighting British soldiers in WWI. After the war, the trench coatfound its way into civilian life, and soon it became an icon of dapper London style. The trench made Burberry famous, but by 2000 the company had grown into a luxury-clothing juggernaut. Looking to redefine its identity, Burberry tapped fellow Brit Christopher Bailey as chief creative officer in 2001. Under his stewardship, Burberry introduced the Prorsum, London, and Brit lines-and has pulled off a unique feat: looking at the past, and toward the future, while hitting on what works today.

Product Features

All diaper bags have room for carrying diapers and wipes, but they vary greatly in size, materials, strap length, carry style, and storage ability. Some also offer features like changing pads, key clips, and phone pockets.

Straps

Most diaper bags have one or two straps for carrying the diaper bag over the shoulder, across the body, or in the hand. Straps can be made from a variety of materials and may include padding, adjustable lengths, and/or additional storage pockets. Some diaper bags include additional straps for changing the bag’s carry style or attaching it to a stroller.

Storage Compartments

Diaper bags often have a main storage compartment and other pockets, pouches, zippered compartments, and/or clips for carrying baby items. Many diaper bags also have designated pockets for keys and cell phones, in order to keep them easier for the carrier to access.

Bottle Pockets

Larger diaper bags offer one or more specialty pockets for bottles. Some of these pockets may be mesh and/or have an adjustable elastic top that fits various bottle sizes.

Changing Pad

Many diaper bags include a removable changing pad made out of a soft, easily cleaned fabric.

Exterior Material

Diaper bags’ exteriors come in a wide range of fabrics, including denim, leather, cotton, nylon, polyester, felt, tweed, and velvet. Embroidery decorates some diaper bags, while others feature hardware, logos, and other embellishments.

Interior Material

Diaper bags should include an internal material that is resistant to spills and easy to wipe clean. Some interiors even may be machine-washable.

Other Features

Diaper bags may also include additional conveniences such as a key ring, pacifier clip, cell-phone pocket, change purse, bottle holder, wet bag, wipes case, and/or stroller straps.

Purchase Considerations

Before buying a diaper bag, make sure that it is in a style that you like, as well as offers all the features and function that you need. You’ll want it to be convenient, comfortable, and cute, as you will be carrying it everywhere.

Size

Before selecting a diaper bag, consider the size of your purse. If you tend to carry a large one with necessities and accessories for every situation, there’s a good chance you’ll pack your diaper bag the same way. Minimalists who travel only with a clutch should look for compact, streamlined diaper bags that will provide room for baby’s needs without being overwhelming to carry.

Carry Style

When you’re carrying a diaper bag, you’re often also carrying your child or moving him in and out of a car seat or stroller. Keep in mind a carry style -- shoulder, messenger, backpack, hobo, or hand -- which matches your preferences and activities. Many diaper bags allow more than one carry style, letting parents switch between them based on need.

Washable

Consider how easy it will be to clean the diaper bag. Many designs made of chic fabrics do not handle spit-up or park grime well. Diaper bags may have wipe-able, waterproof exteriors; they may be machine-washable or dry clean-only. 

Closure style

Diaper bags may close with zippers, Velcro, snaps, toggles, or buttons. The closure style affects its ease of access. (Can you open the bag with one hand? Can you quickly find important items like keys or pacifiers?) It also will determine how quietly you can access the goods. (Will the snaps or Velcro wake up baby?).

Bottom of bag

While the bottom of the bag may not be the first place you look when deciding on a carryall, take a peek there before you buy. That area will see it all, from coffee shops to parking lots, and from bathroom stalls to park benches. Ensure your choice is up to the test by being durable, easily cleaned, and/or protected with purse feet.
