With one kid (especially a toddler), it’s pretty easy to get by with just a larger purse with a spare diaper and wipes inside for daily outings. But now, adding a newborn to the mix, I realized there is a TON of stuff you need on hand to be prepared.
A popular diaper bag for cloth diapering moms in the past has been the Casual Cargo Purse by Thirty One. I was able to get one before it was discontinued a couple years ago, and I’ve found it to be an excellent purse/diaper bag for day outings. However, it is pretty casual, and I was wanting something a little more classy to carry around. Thirty One’s new Diamond District purse is the perfect upgrade. It’s pretty much the same size as the Casual Cargo, but offers even more organizational options.
On the outside, the Diamond District has a large front pocket with magnetic closures for quick and easy access. It’s perfect for all the “mommy” stuff like wallet, keys, chapstick, etc. I love the Thirty One All About the Benjamins Wallet (pictured in green), and although it’s pretty big, it still easily fits inside the Diamond District pocket. On the back, there is a hidden outer pocket for a cell phone.
Inside the Diamond District is are two flat pockets, a side pocket, and snaps to add on two additional pockets (either a flat zipper or tri-pocket), so you can get exactly the organizational options you need. This fits a TON of stuff, but isn’t too large to carry around. It makes the perfect purse/diaper bag.
I love the Thirty One Zipper Pouch (pictured in Teal Mod Dot) or Medium Thermal Zipper pouch to keep even more of my baby essentials organized inside!
As you can see, the space, organization, and overall look of the Diamond District easily makes it a top contender for the “Best Diaper Bag.” But, it gets even better! When I was looking at popular diaper bags, the price tag can be huge! While the Diamond District retails for $148, you can get it for half price or free when you host a Thirty One party! Where else can you get that kind of a deal?
I am loving my Diamond District, and I think a lot of my mommy friends would love it too! What do you think? What features are most important to you in a purse/diaper bag?
