Looking for a stylish diaper bag? From affordable diaper bags in gender neutral styles to designer diaper bags, here’s our guide to the best diaper bags!
Diaper bag, nappy bag, baby bag…whatever you call it, we’re so glad that they’ve come a long way from their origins of ‘kiddie’ prints and frumpy, bulky styles! Many of the diaper bags available these days are thoughtfully designed for style-conscious parents and often come in stunning colours and prints. After all, we need something to match our outfits when we take those family pictures while out and about, right? But looks are not everything, of course. A functional diaper bag is instrumental in holding the many necessities needed when going out with kids – extra diapers, extra clothes, wipes, bottles, cloths, snacks, rattles, small toys and more.
Is a diaper bag worth it?
As a new parent, you may be wondering: Why are diaper bags so expensive?! Diaper bags boast key features that aren’t present in regular bags. A diaper bag often has many compartments to better organise baby essentials, is insulated to keep milk bottles warm, water repellant for easy clean up of spills and dirt, has extra straps to hang on your stroller, and often come with a changing mat or extra pouches to make on-the-go diaper changes easier.
That said, you’ll hear from experienced mamas that virtually any bag can become a diaper bag with the right bag insert or organiser – and we talk about this below!
Before you start looking for your perfect diaper bag, consider what your needs are. Is function your number one priority? Do you love big bags or prefer something more compact? Tote or backpack? Is your partner happy to carry the diaper bag no matter the aesthetic, or are you more inclined to get a stylish diaper bag that’s also gender neutral? Keep scrolling for our favourite mama-approved diaper bags!

Looking for a stylish yet practical diaper bag? Meet the Signature Diaper Backpack by OiOi, the highest-rated diaper bag in Australia for the past four years. We love the spacious interior with plenty of pockets (eight in total!) that will help you keep your little bub’s items organised. It also comes with padded shoulder straps and a stroller strap, so you can easily attach it to your stroller when you’re on the go. The insulated bottle holder will keep your coffee (or your baby’s bottle) nice and warm, while you’re on the go.

Founded by actress Shay Mitchell (from Pretty Little Liars and You), Beis has achieved cult status with their travel bags and chic suitcases in various sizes. Since becoming a mama herself, of course Shay had to launch her own line of stylish diaper bags! The classic Beis Diaper Bag is their version of the ‘anti-diaper’ diaper bag, aiming to offer ultimate functionality without compromising on style. The Beis Diaper Bag comes with a changing pad and pocket, an odour-proof pouch, a teething ring to keep your little one busy during diaper changes and a pacifier pouch. We love the various straps, which includes an adjustable shoulder strap, fancy chain straps and handy stroller straps. There’s also the Diaper Backpack if you prefer a back-carry style.

The Escape tote comes with its own removable zipper pouch to store smaller baby essentials. While it’s very roomy with a 27L capacity, we highly recommend sticking to less heavy items when packing this diaper bag due to the thin straps.
