There's no way around it: Becoming a mom means you're going to have to start carrying around a lot of stuff. Those cute little mini bags aren't going to hold a spare bottle or changing supplies for a day out running errands, and you'll have a hard time stuffing any toys in a clutch for a trip to the park. This is where a chic diaper bag comes in (yes, they do exist). With enough space to stash all your essentials and plenty of pockets to keep it all organized, it's bound to become an indispensable accessory.
You might also be surprised at how many of your favorite handbag designers already make styles expressly for this purpose: Marc Jacobs has a sleek version for everyday wear, Stella McCartney makes a sporty vegan style, and even Gucci has a logo-covered bag for the mom with luxurious taste. For less expensive options, check out the offerings from Herschel Supply Company and The Honest Company, both of which are as polished as they are practical.
