I found myself in the baby isle of Target the other day talking a mom to be out of buying a nappy/diaper bag! I know it really wasn’t my business and I really have no idea why I even opened my mouth, except I feel that you pay WAY too much on an ugly nappy/diaper bag, when all a nappy/diaper bag is, is a bag with pockets and different compartments!
Well equestrian mothers to be- Take my advice:
Buy are super beautiful bag that will last way past nappy/diaper years!
Really what you need is a great bag that has a few compartments and in addition to that- a clutch purse or cross body bag for your own items and an envelope bag or two for baby goods and other things.
If you’re going to spend money on a diaper bag- you might as well get something that fits your style(cause face it, mid price nappy/diaper bags are UGLY and pretty ones are super $$$). Find something that will grow with your needs from infant to toddler and beyond!
Large equestrian bags the suit these needs: Check out Oughton Limited, Baker Blankets, Rebecca Ray Designs, Sheplers and Etsy.
Consider a Clutch bag or a cross body bag that fits your basic needs of -Wallet, Cell phone, some other little items that you can remove quickly if needed is a great idea. Or get a cross body bag.

And a cosmetic bag or an envelope bag for baby needs for nap pies, wipes, sunscreen, nipple cream, etc..
A spare change of clothes for baby can be placed in a separate bag and left to live in the car. This can be easily grabbed if you think you might
Put all your essentials in a large bag that you will still have some room for extras, like a small blanket, a book, or other items!
