Choose the size
Choose a bag with enough room to hold food, diapers, lotion, and bottles.
Look for bottle holders
Look for a bag that has specifically designed bottle holders to protect the bottles from spilling.
Buy a bag with padded straps
Make sure the straps are padded and adjustable. Well designed shoulder support alleviates shoulder and back pain.
Choose the material
Choose a material that will last. Leather and nylon bags cost more but last longer. Stain resistant fabrics are also a plus.
Look for stroller attachments
Look for a bag that has straps that can attach to your stroller's handlebars.
Purchase bag for parents
Purchase a bag that has compartments that parents can use. Most include a place to store your cell phone, keys, and wallet.
Keep the bag well stocked
Keep your bag well stocked. Don't forget to carry a changing pad and sanitizer.
