When it comes to buying baby/kid gear, I’d like to think that I’m a minimalist. I try to stick to only the necessities. When I made my baby registry back when I was pregnant with Jack, I tried to keep it to only the things that I would absolutely need. One item that I struggled with finding was a diaper bag. The diaper bag was the one item on our baby registry that caused a fight between my husband and me.
I wanted something practical, but I also wanted something that was cute that I could carry around. I completely forgot that my husband was going to be staying home with Jack half the week while I was working and he might want to use a diaper bag too. When we got the “cute” diaper bag in the mail as a gift my husband saw it and immediately vetoed it. His argument was that he was not going to carry around a “girly looking purse” diaper bag. Anyway, I ended up finding a simple black over the shoulder “gender-neutral” diaper bag for us to share. It worked fine and I carried it for about the first 6 weeks, then I just decided to throw everything in my purse when we went out, but we still used the black bag as his school diaper bag.
