Now that my son is 4 months old, I’m craving a diaper bag that’s a little more stylish and summery than the workhorse tote I hauled around when he was a newborn. Because now that he’s screaming slightly less often — or at more regular intervals, anyway — I’ve been bringing him to so many more places, like the local paleta shop or an al fresco dinner with friends.

So I searched around and found some really fun and stylish diaper bags that might make you feel a little sunnier during those dog days of summer schlepping.

Summer diaper bags: Fawn Design Blush Diaper Bag | Fawn Design

The Blush Diaper BagĀ is so classy and cool as a backpack that I would totally wear it even if I didn’t need to lug diapers and wipes everywhere I go. Plus, f0r a stylish diaper bag this pretty, it’s deceptively functional, with 10 pockets and completely wipeable surfaces. It’s designed to be worn as a backpack, tote, or hip messenger bag, and I think it’d pair perfectly with theĀ rose sneakersĀ we’re all obsessed with right now. ($159.99, Fawn Design)

Summer diaper bags: Hand Painted Baggu Diaper Bag | Land of Nod

I would totally qualify thisĀ Hand Painted Baggu Diaper BagĀ as a work of art, because it’s about as pricey as one.

It’s definitely a splurge, but if you want a stylish diaper bag that would look as at home in a museum as it would at the tot lot, my money’s on this one. ($399, Land of Nod)
