7 Reasons Diaper Bags Are Better Than Purses
Diaper bags get a lot of hate, even here on Mommyish. A few months ago we published a post about how diaper bags are full of crap and you don’t need one. No offense to my fellow writers, but I disagree.Â My diaper bag is big, ugly, has stood by me through two children, and I absolutely love it. Would a purse be more stylish? Probably. But, I’d have to be a lot more careful with a purse, and let’s be honest here: no one ever accused me of being stylish even before I started carrying a diaper bag full time. Here are seven reasons diaper bags are actually way cooler than purses:
1. They hold all of the things.
You were already practically perfect in every way, but now you also have a magic bag. Anyone need a snack, a Band-Aid, a chew toy, or a stained glass Tiffany lamp? Move over, Mary Poppins. Mom’s got this.
2. It doesn’t matter if you spill on them.
Formula, breast milk, fruit puree, diaper cream — bring it on. Diaper bags were built to hold up against any sort of grossness you can imagine and it’s kind of nice not having to be neurotic about protecting your bag.
3. They’re easy to clean.
Flip it upside down over a trash can to get rid of crumbs and garbage, then wipe it down with a Clorox wipe. Pretty sure I’ve never been able to do that with my Dooney & Bourke.
