Wear your seatbelt

During my days as a funky bottle-cap belt and Chuck wearing singleton, Harveys seatbelt bags made from actual seatbelts were it. And apparently, they still are, but now for the hip baby mamas. While their exclusive Camo bag (my fave) is pretty sizable, I love how it’s not ridiculously deep. Which means it’s roomy but not to the point where you’ll feel like Mary Poppins reaching into her carpet bag when you need to find a binky. And you’ll find plenty of pockets, plus a coordinating changing pad, just in case you want to feel like you’re carrying an...

Need more justification to get a Bugaboo? Try their new partnership with (PRODUCT)RED.

It’s turning into good cause day at Cool Mom Picks, which is just okey dokey by us.  In this case, it’s Bugaboo, whose Frog stroller saved this Brooklyn mama from three years of curbs, cobblestones, and car-eating potholes, and the noble cause: The (PRODUCT)RED Global Fund to help fund AIDS programs in Africa for families and children. Through BUGABOO (PRODUCT)RED, the company is launching the snazziest special edition denim-canopied Chameleon stroller, which we got to admire (and drool over) at the ABC show last month. There are also some great new accessories and a swanky, very well-designed leather diaper...

The Mad Men diaper clutch

Smaller diaper bags and diaper clutches tend to be sporty, so if you prefer something more stylish and on trend, you’re often left to fend for yourself with a small purse stuffed with baby stuff, praying that the bottle doesn’t leak onto your not-quite-waterproof lining. Well, small chic bag lovers, let me introduce you to the beautiful new Petunia Pickle Bottom Cameo Clutch from their “Cake” line, which looks like it was stolen right off the Mad Men prop table. (You did watch the season premiere last night, right?) I’m always hearing a lot of chatter about the PPB...

I can bring home the bacon, I can wipe your butt with one hand

My childless co-workers are intrigued by my ability to open almost anything with one hand. I did not possess these mad skillz when I was a new mom. So while the diaper clutches from Kristi G Diaper Bags touted the “EZ-Wipe System,” I was apprehensive. (And not just because it sounded like something more suited to a car wax than a chic accessory.) As it turns out, I admire the bag’s modern look, stylish cloth and fancy-schmancy G hardware, and seriously, one-handed wipe removal. Zippering it all back together does take two hands, but by that time, the poop...

Prepacked hospital bags? Reader Q&A

Can you recommend a service that offers hospital bags with wonderful goodies for a new mom? I loved the goodies inside the one I received last year and now my daughter uses the bag as her ‘overnight’ bag for all our trips. -Christina We’ve searched high and low for prepacked hospital gift bags that are full of useful–and tasteful–goodies for moms. And so far, our favorite has been the maternity bags from Babytime Bags. The very cute tote contains everything from flip flops (SO essential) to a handy nightstand clock, as well as stuff for baby from brands we...

The diaper bag for fall (with emphasis on THE)

All this back to school shopping for my daughter has gotten in the mood for fall. And for me, that means pulling out my favorite boots and looking for a brand new diaper bag. We’re already huge fans of the Baby Kaed bags from mom Lavinia Lobo, and now her new Noimoy diaper bag, with the fashionable quilted faux leather, is the perfect fall bag for moms like me who like the roominess and pockets of a diaper bag, but don’t need to haul their entire nursery with them. In fact, it’s a great for moms of toddlers who...

Diaper bags that look like nothing of the sort. Which seems to be the point these days.

It’s hard to believe a few short years ago, a diaper bag looked like (gasp) a diaper bag. Today, diaper bags are allowed to look like clutches, like hobo bags, like totes – pretty much anything besides something actually designed to help you manage the intestinal functions of your infant. Well Timi and Leslie claim to have started that trend, and whether it’s true or not, their convertible designer diaper bags certainly do fit the bill. The Mod and Parisien (shown) styles are probably my favorites, with sleek modern (and thankfully lightweight) designs that skip the fussiness of decorative...

The Cool Mom Picks bag of the year turns diaper bag

Both Liz and I espoused the greatness of Crystalyn Kae’s Soiree bag – so much so that it was our pick for Cool Mom Picks Bag of the Year in 2008. So when we found out that she made a few changes to her original design to turn it into a diaper bag, well we just had to share. It’s still the same slouchy, stylish and versatile bag we love, with soft vegan leather and vintage fabric kick pleats. But at the request of a loyal fan and mom-to-be, the designer has added a slew of handy pockets and...

Go from diaper bag to diaper bag without another diaper bag

Considering my bag addiction, now infamous with my husband and our credit card company if not all of you, I can’t believe I’m about to tell you how to avoid buying another diaper bag. Thanks to the Pishposh Mommy quick zip bag, you can turn any decent-sized handbag you own into a diaper bag in about two seconds flat. Even this season’s hobos, which are rarely stellar in the lots of pockets department. Just pop in the attractive quick zip bag which has a a water-resistant lining and pockets inside and out. You’re done.  Best of all, when you...

Designer diaper bags get a floral pick-me-up

I was just thinking it’s been a while since I saw any fun new diaper bags to get excited over, and then CMP fave Hedvig Bourbon goes and reads my mind and creates well, some fun new diaper bags to get excited over. The trendy Brooklyn designer’s trademark Lucas stroller totes now come in two Marimekko-esque prints that are so bright and colorful and springy, I’m looking at my black patent leather number and feeling a little morose. The bag’s got all the snaps and pockets and flaps that you need, plus a dandy leather strap that hooks on...
