Cool Diaper Bags - Articles Surfing
Unlike parents in the past, many contemporary parents are looking for cool diaper bags. For parents of earlier generations, diaper bag designs were often very baby-oriented designs, featuring popular characters from books and cartoons. The colors were often pastels ' blue for boys, pink for girls, and yellow, purple or green for either gender. A more recent trend was a plain or plaid diaper bag, but often were only be found in basic beige, black, navy and denim. Moms who wanted a more stylish diaper bag often resorted to just carrying a large purse, stuffing it full of diapers and bottles, with no compartments to organize all the baby supplies.
Modern parents can now choose from a vast array of diaper bags. These newer diaper bags feature popular modern fabrics by top designers, Asian silks, global fabrics and retro prints. Several Hollywood moms have been seen carrying their trendy silk diaper bags. Diaper bags can be found in nearly any color imaginable in a style to suit everyone and every occasion. There are also many different styles of fabrics that appeal to male parents, so that fathers can carry their own cool diaper bags too. Even with such beautiful fabrics to choose from, today's cool diaper bags are usually washable or easily cleaned by wiping with a damp cloth.
Diaper bags no longer have to scream 'baby.' They come in fashionable styles like messenger bags, totes, and backpacks ' but unlike their traditional counterparts, they have specialized compartments to hold all of baby's gear, including changing pads and coordinated wipe holders. The compartments may be lined with special fabrics depending on their purpose, and pockets attached to the exterior of the bag may have a transparent, easy-wipe cover.
Some diaper bags have adjustable straps for parent's comfort, and may convert from a standard diaper bag to a backpack style diaper bag when needed. This is a great help for long trips like visiting the zoo, or a big day of shopping when there are lots of packages to carry. Many cool diaper bags also feature pedestal feet on the bottom to keep the fabric off of the floor or ground.
Many parents are now choosing to use cloth diapering systems, and the newest generation of diaper bags often have accessory bags for cloth diapers that are lined with PUL fabric, usually a Polyester interlock fabric that has been laminated with polyurethane. This is the same fabric that is used for All-In-One cloth diapers, and the diaper covers used for other styles of cloth diapers. This makes the interior compartments waterproof in order to get those soiled cloth diapers home again with a minimum of odor.
Another great feature of the newer diaper bags is the heavy-duty plastic lining on larger interior compartments, like the type used in soft-sided beverage coolers. These compartments can hold ice packs to store bottles or baggies of expressed breast milk, formula and cold foods. The plastic interiors can help prevent leaking milk and food onto the exterior fashion fabrics.
