What Your Diaper Bag Says About You
Babies love to pull on anything they can grab, so for many new moms accessories like necklaces, earrings and even long hair get sacrificed in the name of comfort and child safety. That cute silk blouse you feel so good in may get retired while your child is a drool factory. But self expression isn’t totally lost once you become a mom. The ever present diaper bag is a way to express your personal style and send a message to everyone you meet. Here’s what your diaper bag style says about you.
1. Your diaper bag is actually a purse.
You love having a baby but see no reason why you have to turn your life upside down in order to raise a child. Your oversized handbag contains a couple diapers, wipes and your laid back attitude. You’re the kind of mom other moms turn to for advice.
2. A backpack.
You have multiple kids close in age, or live in a city where the ability to be hands free is more important than style. You spend a lot of time outdoors and your baby will probably have a passport before they cut their first tooth.
3. Plain black.
Between the diapers, wipes, butt paste, lovey, spare outfit, sunscreeen, bottle, thermos of milk, band-aids, tissues, bib, snacks and toys you’ve got crammed in there, your diaper bag weighs almost as much as your baby. Having a bag in a neutral color ensures your partner won’t balk when you pass it off for them to carry.
4. Cartoon character.
Your feel your sole purpose on this earth is to make your child happy. You always wanted to be a mother and now that you are one, you and your husband refer to each other as “Mommy” and “Daddy”, even when your child is asleep.
