The 11 best diaper bags of 2023, per reviews

Sure, you could use any random tote of your liking to hold all of your baby’s essentials but with a diaper bag, they’ll include convenient features like insulated pockets for bottles, built-in changing mats and supportive shoulder straps, just to name a few.

No matter what age your baby may be, whether you’re toting around things for an infant or a toddler (diapers, snacks, toys, pacifiers, Water Wipes, a change of clothes — you get the point) just about everything in that “Mary Poppins” bag will become essential to everyday life. Therefor, finding the perfect diaper bag is a pretty big deal. (Tip: and a great baby shower gift!)

In an effort to make your life easier, the New York Post Shopping team rounded up the top diaper bags on the Internet, according to rave reviews. With comfort, functionality, durability, budget and even aesthetics in mind.

The Dagne Dover Indi Diaper Backpack is available in three different sizes and eight different colors. It has storage for extra diapers and clothes, but it also has pouches and pockets for wipes, toys, snacks, and more. Plus, it has two key leashes–one for keys and one for other on-hand essentials (like, say, a binky). And if your little one has an older sibling that likes to (or needs to) be distracted by a tablet, there’s room for that too.

“Hands down my favorite bag I’ve had in a long time. The wider set back straps makes weight distribution easier on my shoulders,” said one happy reviewer. “The neoprene works well to repel the elements and still looks chic and fashion forward. The extra wide mouth with dual zippers is great for loading and unloading.”

With a whopping 30,000+ reviews on Amazon and price point below $50 — we knew this option would make our list. With nearly a dozen different colors to choose from, a changing pad, 16 pockets (including insulated bottle pockets), a laptop pocket and much more, this diaper backpack seems like a no brainer.

“This diaper bag is perfect for moms. It holds EVERYTHING. Having a 5 month old and a 5 year old I end up with my hands full all the time. I normally have a bottle, my water bottle, and my 5 year olds water bottle. All three can fit in here with ease,” said one Amazon shopper.

“This is my third diaper bag — and my favorite! I originally went for a leather look, and while the bag from the outside looked great, it lacked organization. This bag has so many pockets!” said another.

A diaper bag that doesn’t look like a diaper bag? We’re in!

Leave it up to none other than actress Shay Mitchell (and mother of two!) to create the chicest, most functional diaper bag on the market. Complete with every essential needed for that dreaded diaper change; changing pad with a zippered pocket for an extra diaper and baby wipes, an odor-proof pouch, a teething ring to keep the baby from squirming and a pacifier pouch to easily reach that must have plug. Plus, enjoy four different sets of interchangeable straps; stroller straps, an adjustable shoulder strap, two flat shoulder straps and chain straps for when you’re feeling fancy.

“Very elegant, the accessories are really nice, and very functional. Will buy it for my friends when they have babies!!” said a customer.

“The Beís diaper bag is amazing. It doesn’t look like a diaper bag, very stylish, amazing pocket space, and great for everyday use,” said another.

The Large Wade is great for parents of newborns who can’t leave the house without bringing everything with them. With pockets to hold everything their new bundle of joy needs there’s also an exterior phone pocket and interior pouches for mom and dad. And since lack of sleep has no doubt clouded their memory, the Large Wade has not one, but two key leashes to help you remember where you put your keys and your little one’s binky.

“I’m obsessed with this bag! It has room for everything and then some! Can handle my work and mom life seamlessly!” said a reviewer.

For the dad who’s looking for something “manly” you can’t go wrong with the ultra-durable Bag Nation diaper bag. It has nearly 6,000 Amazon reviews thanks to its smooth, high-quality zippers, 14-pockets, dedicated quick access wipes pocket, insulated bottle pockets and a full open zipper back that gives you access to what ever you may need, quickly. Plus, enjoy cushioned, vented padding on the back and shoulder straps.

“I’ve been really impressed with this bag so far. I have a busy 2-year-old and a small baby, so I really wanted something hands free to make life easier when I’m running errands alone. It also feels much safer to not feel unbalanced when I need to move quickly,” said a reviewer. “It makes life so much easier with little ones.”

For a diaper backpack that doesn’t look like it’s filled with diapers, consider the STATE BAGS Lorimer Diaper Bag. Equipped with an insulated bottle pocket, a changing pad, a slip pocket for your phone, easily adjustable straps that attach to your stroller, a luggage sleeve to make travel just a bit easier, and side bottle sleeves for that much needed coffee. 

“I love this diaper bag. The material feels luxurious while also being sturdy. It looks nice. The best part about it is all the compartments for things. Wish I had bought it sooner!” said a happy customer.

This leather diaper bag is for the fashionable mama who wants her diaper bag to be as beautiful as it is functional.

Made with soft leather and a fabric lining, this diaper bag tote also includes a removable insulated insert so you can keep all your baby’s needs sorted while on-the-go. Made with water resistant fabric and divided into five compartments. For an added bonus — a removable leather wristlet clips to the side of the bag where you can keep your phone and car keys tucked away. Available in 11 different shades.

“I love this bag. It’s a great size and the insert really helps to keep it from turning into a bottomless pit. Unlike with most other diaper bags, this bag can continue to be used as an everyday purse way past our toddler years,” one person said.

This Herschel option can be worn over the shoulder or hung from a stroller with a unique buckle design. A folding easy-wipe change mat joins convenient internal and external storage options for diapers, wipes, bottles and much more. Get this pick in pink, grey or black.

“This bag is perfect. I have a 3-month-old and a toddler, it has so much room to fit both of my kids clothes, diapers, etc. Best baby bag ever!” said an Amazon reviewer.

Béis does it again with the brand’s backpack diaper bag. It’s the perfect accessory with enough function to tote around all your baby-mama needs and chic enough that no one will ever suspect that you’re carrying around a week-old dirty diaper!

Complete with a changing pad with a diaper and baby wipes pocket, an odor-proof pouch, a teething ring to keep the babe from squirming, and a pacifier pouch to easily reach that must-have baby plug.

“Love my diaper bag! It’s so spacious and I look cute while I wear it around. I love all the little extras like the pacifier holder — makes it even more convenient and adorable! Best money I ever spent on a diaper bag,” said a reviewer.

The Skip Hop Diaper Bag Backpack is another great find under $50 that is well-loved by the Internet with nearly 2,000 raving reviews.

This pick is lightweight and fits everything from snacks to spare outfits with the extra-wide opening that makes finding your baby’s essentials as easy as can be. It comes with two mini packing cubes, a changing pad, padded backpack straps and easily hangs on the back of a stroller.

“This diaper bag has a place for everything and is a great size (we are using it for one baby, but you could use it for twins or a baby and toddler with plenty of space),” said a happy Amazon shopper. “Easy to carry by straps or handle. Zippers work well. Stays standing upright when you set it down.”

While Prada doesn’t have any reviews on its website, it seems like every mama on Instagram is strutting the streets with their Prada diaper bag so it only felt natural to complete our list with the one and only. If money is no object, splurging on this Prada Re-Nylon Baby Bag is a no brainer.

Equipped with several pockets and a removable baby bottle holder, this shoulder strap baby bag is made from recycled, purified plastic trash collected in the ocean, fishing nets, and textile waste fibers.
