1. Your diaper bag is actually a purse.
You love having a baby but see no reason why you have to turn your life upside down in order to raise a child. Your oversized handbag contains a couple diapers, wipes and your laid back attitude. You’re the kind of mom other moms turn to for advice.
2. A backpack.
You have multiple kids close in age, or live in a city where the ability to be hands free is more important than style. You spend a lot of time outdoors and your baby will probably have a passport before they cut their first tooth.
3. Plain black.
Between the diapers, wipes, butt paste, lovey, spare outfit, sunscreeen, bottle, thermos of milk, band-aids, tissues, bib, snacks and toys you’ve got crammed in there, your diaper bag weighs almost as much as your baby. Having a bag in a neutral color ensures your partner won’t balk when you pass it off for them to carry.
4. Cartoon character.
Your feel your sole purpose on this earth is to make your child happy. You always wanted to be a mother and now that you are one, you and your husband refer to each other as “Mommy” and “Daddy”, even when your child is asleep.
5. Vera Bradley.
Even though you tell yourself that you’re an individual because all of your friends have chosen different patterns, having a Vera Bradley diaper bag makes you a Basic. But on the bright side, you can totally toss your diaper bag in the washer when your baby spills your Starbucks on it.
6. Free bag from formula company.
You’re far too hipster to choose a traditional baby name, let alone purchase a mass produced diaper bag. You use the bag your pediatrician gave you, but in the most ironic way possible. Your crib is made of upcycled wood pallets and your birth announcements were electronic only. Once your child starts solids you’ll post Facebook pictures of her trying sushi and fancy cheeses.
You’ve already knitted most of your baby’s wardrobe, so you figured why stop there. You can do amazing things with chevron fabric and your Pinterest board is mostly original posts from your own projects.
You believe being a mom is no reason to neglect your style. If anything, your look is even more on point now because your baby is the ultimate accessory. Your infant’s giant flower headband must coordinate with your own outfit.
