Style Shopper: Buying a stylish diaper bag that doubles as a work laptop bag
Reader Muirie asked me to recommend a great laptop/work bag that could double as a diaper bag on weekends.
As a mother who cloth diapered (and still does), I really needed a bag that could carry clean AND dirty diapers back home to be washed, and I’ve never been a fan of bags that look like diaper bags, so here are my top picks.
This Lug Tote has been a perennial favourite of anyone who has used it. I own a Lug tote in blue, and I use it quite often.
It is lightweight, has tons of pockets (zippered ones), and is washable.
Just check out all the storage:
This everyday tote features padded shoulder straps, hidden water bottle holder, removable coin pouch, wipeable bottom, removable key fob, and plenty of pockets and pouches for organizing. This Lug bag has a “feature first” for the Lug line—a soft-lined pocket with a pull-tab and magnetic closure that’s ideal for easy access to a smartphone.
I still love the Longchamp Pliage as a diaper bag, or even for work. You just need to be a bit more organized by having more pouches to contain your things.
LO & SONS TOTE
Buy the smaller version of the Lo & Sons and it will not be so overwhelming. It really has a lot of pockets, has lots of great space in there, and is a good bag for the office, but not the super big one of course.
It also works great as a diaper bag, I even used it once when I needed to tote around my breast pump in addition to cloth diapers.
SKIP HOP HIGHLINE TOTE
I found this Skip Hop Highline striped tote and it looks SO CHIC you wouldn’t even know it’s a diaper bag.
It’s big enough to hold a laptop and work items, and it looks so good I’m tempted to buy it just for me.. LOL
