Once you become a parent, everything changes. Your priorities shift and you immediately transform into a pack mule. New parents have to carry around about ten times the amount of "stuff" they did during the pre-baby years. You need something chic, practical, and reliable to schlep around baby clothes, bottles, pacis, toys, food, blankets, and beyond. These designer diaper bags will get the job done and leave you feeling like a runway model while they're at it. Seriously, what more could you ever want in a diaper bag? Nothing!
