A good-looking, functional diaper bag is one of the pieces of baby gear parents will get the most use out of, period. You will continue to use it for several years and it will go with you and baby every time you leave home, carrying diaper gear, extra clothes, pacifiers, burp cloths, bottles or food, books, and likely some of mom and dad's necessities, too. That's why parents need a diaper bag that not only holds a lot and has useful organizational features, but also is durable, easily washable, and hides dirt. We also wanted our diaper bag to be gender neutral, so that both of us felt comfortable wearing it around town. The Skip Hop Duo Signature Diaper Bag fits the bill on all of these fronts, and we're still using it daily with our toddler.
Description & Features
The Skip Hop Duo Signature Diaper Bag is made of polyester. The bag features a roomy main compartment that zips closed and has two unzippered interior pockets. The bag has two grab handles, an adjustable shoulder strap with padding, and non-slip stroller straps. On our scale, the empty diaper bag weighed 1.6 pounds. Its dimensions (not counting external pockets that stand out from main compartment) are 13 inches by 4.5 inches by 14 inches.
One great feature of this bag: it includes a thick tri-fold changing pad, perfect for quick changes on the go. It fits neatly into one of the large, unzippered exterior pockets, as shown in the photo below.
This bag's thoughtful design includes one smaller zippered pocket near the grab handles that is the perfect size for keeping keys, phone, and other small items within mom and dad's reach and separate from all of the baby gear. This diaper bag also features two large elastic exterior pockets that hold snacks, toys, bib, etc., as well as two tall elastic mesh exterior pockets on both ends of bag that can hold large milk bottles, a travel mug, or simply additional gear.
The Guru's Tip #1: When baby is still having messy diaper changes and you are on a longer excursion away from home, use a washable Boppy Changing Pad Liner on top of the pad that comes with this diaper bag!
