Me, Hattie and my fave diaper bag from Skip Hop

As baby number 4 bakes in my belly, I’m having fun getting ready for his or her arrival. Even though this isn’t my first rodeo, so to speak, there are a few things I like to start fresh with when each of my little ones arrives. One of my favorites, of course, is a stylish diaper bag – any practiced mom knows that baby bags take a lot of wear and tear, so a new one is always a welcome investment. With that in mind, I wanted to share a few of my favorites on the market right now. So, without further ado:

MARC by Marc Jacobs Pretty Eliz-a-baby Bag in Parrot Green ($298 at Neiman Marcus):



I just love the cheerful color! Plus the soft structure makes the bag malleable- great for whatever you throw its way – and the long strap makes it easy and comfortable to tote around town.

Stockholm Diaper Bag/Messenger Bag in Navy Blue and White Nautical Striped ($79 from the Ikabags Store on Etsy)



Anyone who’s ever had to carry their little one(s) while toting all the supplies knows just how fabulous a cross-body bag can be. Plus, this chic and nautical bag is eco-friendly (which is always a plus) and once your little one is out of diapers, can be used as a beach bag, a weekender bag, a gym bag… any kind of bag you want need!

Larkspur Boho Diaper Bag in Orange Ikat ($99 at Pottery Barn Kids)



This linen printed bag is not only super stylish with its orange ikat print and braided handles, but also comes with a removable changing pad and tons of pockets for easy organizing. And I don’t know about you, but anything that can be monogrammed is a must for me!

The Diaper Dude Original Diaper Bag ($60)



I’m so lucky that Dean is such a helpful daddy – he definitely helps carry the load. So with that in mind, I think all proud papas should be equipped to schlep the supplies, and the Diaper Dude is a (much-needed) masculine way for them to just that. There are lots of different styles and at a dude-friendly price point.

Skip Hop‘s Versa Diaper Bag ($70):



Now, this is my absolute favorite of all: It’s super-stylish but also incredibly functional. The side exterior pockets give much-needed easy access for when you don’t have any hands free and – best of all- the center of the bag is expandable to give you 20% more storage. How fab is that?! Plus, Skip Hop is a super stylish line in general – they even recently collaborated with my fave, Mr. Jonathan Adler! Check out their full collection here.

So, I have a very special surprise for you – since the Skip Hop bag is my favorite, today I’m giving them away to two lucky ediTORIal mommies-to-be!
