I have a regular diaper bag (eddie bauer one) and I also have a utility tote from 31, that I got personalized for the baby, I got it thinking I may not use it as a bag for when he is real little as they seem to need more stuff, but to pack stuff up when we travel, like going to the beach as an extra bag, or to grandma's, aunts etc..  I love the 31 bags, they are nice and durable. If I wouldn't have gotten my diaper bag for a shower gift, then I probably would have just used the 31 bag as my everyday diaper bag!  https://i.pinimg.com/236x/fb/cd/54/fbcd54cb24b57a0c9f5e6c6d4d5c56d8--younique-baby-pictures.jpg

Then, you have two ways of carrying the bag. You have the padded shoulder straps, which are quite comfortable to wear when it's loaded down might I add. Then you also have the adjustable crossbody strap which clips on and off. I love this because I keep it in my bag for when I may need to give my shoulder a break and you don't have to leave it attached. Nothing worse than an attached long strap just hanging from the bag! So that is certainly not an issue. The clips the strap attaches to can also adjust as a clip ring - as in attaching keys using the Thirty-One Hang-It-Up Key Fob. This is a great way to prevent losing your keys! https://i.pinimg.com/236x/5c/7a/43/5c7a430dd44765f3e0c78ad74a249827--thirty-one-party-my-thirty-one.jpg
Once you finally get out the door, the real adventure begins! Why not be ready for anything by turning your vehicle into a mobile baby station? (We know – between the car seat, stroller, sun shades, backseat mirror and kid-friendly tunes, it kind of is already.) Pack up a structured bin or expandable caddy to keep in your center console or between the seats.

“It is time to break the silence about children’s mental health and with the support of mission-driven partners like Thirty-One Gifts, together, we can set the foundation for helping children not just in our own backyard, but also provide critical resources to children and families around the country,” said Niki Shafer, senior vice president, Outreach, Nationwide Children’s Hospital Foundation.   https://i.pinimg.com/736x/85/8c/5c/858c5c7f61f48c2e534979d026866e59--frugal-tips-girls-night-out.jpg
Thirty One Gifts is a faith-based direct sales company that taps into the meaningful sentiment behind its namesake pro-woman proverb, empowering the consultants that it works with to achieve success. Recently celebrating a full decade in business, this fun twist on personalized purse parties give independent consultants an opportunity to make money through commissions and party hosts the ability to earn deeply discounted products for throwing a successful event. With several purse companies vying for attention in the direct sales market, Thirty One Gifts quietly stands out with high quality products and an unprecedented array of choices. Here are a few of the reasons that women are lining up for the chance to sell this hot line of tote bags, purses and more:
Thirty-One has invited its distribution center workers to relocate to Dallas and continue working at the 651,000-square-foot distribution center space it is leasing in Flower Mound, a suburb of Dallas. Distribution center workers who remain in Columbus will be eligible for a severance package and outplacement services, including onsite job fairs, Monroe said.
So why buy an actual diaper bag? They’re thoughtfully designed with right-size pockets for essential baby gear, and made with tough material that’s easy to clean—inevitably, milk or juice will spill inside, and crushed crackers will find their way into crevices. Mine has been tossed around in my car, dumped on park benches and dragged across wet grass. I once accidentally left a banana peel in it for a few days. “The diaper bag is for the diapering years,” said Meg Collins, founder of Lucie’s List, a blog that recommends essential baby products for new parents. “It’s meant to keep you organized and sane. You have go-to pockets for your keys, diapers and wipes. You don’t have to think or fumble.” That just may help you escape the house a little more quickly.
Thirty One Gifts is a direct sales company that offers beautifully patterned purses, totes and other organizational and home items, with most products able to be personalized through pattern choice and embroidered names and symbols. Individual commission-compensated consultants sell the company's products through fun parties held in the homes of hosts.
The Duo, which has been sold since 2003, has been a longtime best-seller from a company that makes almost two dozen different diaper bags. Just about every retailer we visited—chains, boutiques, and consignment stores, plus online retailers—carried this bag. Parents can pick from a dozen neutral or bold, graphic prints, and on some colors the interior is made of a light-colored fabric so that you can easily see what’s inside (not all diaper bags have gotten the memo on this).

Function and fashion are definitely both important things to look for in a diaper bag. If an over-the-shoulder look is what you're going for, messenger diaper bags are just the thing. You can also find more traditional diaper totes as well. And if you're looking for a bag that keeps your hands completely free, this selection of backpack diaper bags provides just the right amount of added versatility. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/b2/8e/d4/b28ed4f64ab58913d6bac826c96cc29e--forever--manicure-and-pedicure.jpg

Being able to tote around key essentials means you can deal with whatever scenario arises without having to pack up and head home. That being said, you can use a regular backpack or tote bag to cart around what your child needs. You can even slip a changing clutch—a folded changing pad you can tuck diapers and the bare essentials inside of—into your usual bag.
The DadGear Backpack used to be one of our also-great picks but it was discontinued. We liked the bag’s large size and clever storage (like a chamber dedicated to dispensing wipes.) The DadGear’s flaps zipped open all the way—more like a suitcase than a typical handbag—making dumping out crumbs and cleaning easier. If you somehow manage to get your hands on one we still think it makes a great purchase. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/31/da/66/31da660335502ed1d0b17205e5ae2a0b--partridge-entrepreneurship.jpg
The Skip Hop Duo Signature showed no wear and tear as a toddler did his best to get it dirty, including dragging it across the beach and dumping sand inside it. You can flip the bag over to dump out dirt and crumbs, and we were able to successfully scrub off dried milk and crushed Cheerios from the bag’s wipeable polyester interior. The Skip Hop Duo’s deep, narrow main compartment is a bit challenging to reach into to clean compared with those of other diaper bags, but the material is slippery enough that we could still clean it easily enough. Only one other bag, our upgrade pick, was easier to clean.

One is a laptop bag that I liked and decided to turn into a diaper bag. It's about the same width and height, but it's only about 4" deep. It could use a few more pockets since it only has the one... the laptop compartment - I use it for diapers, wipes and changing pad. Everything else is in a jumbled heap in the main compartment. Eh, it works. Slightly annoying, but it works. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/7c/94/21/7c942165111b7a7fbf32f806ff809e4b.jpg
When the time came to ditch the diaper bag, I jumped for joy. I never liked toting around a huge bag, but was still surprised that even though I now have a five-year-old, we still cart around a lot of stuff! Now that we are involved in school and sports, it turns out I still need a decent bag that’s both functional and stylish. Just as we signed up for the upcoming summer swim team (that requires tons of swim accessories!), one of my favorite companies released a baby line- Baby by Thirty One! https://i.pinimg.com/236x/1e/e0/42/1ee042b0c86a4393e53b2624cd198cb9.jpg
My kids are no longer babies nor am I expecting, but my plans were to use this bag as an everyday bag/purse. The bag is large, but not overdoing it. The style and shape are honestly perfect and does not reflect the appearance of a standard diaper bag - which is why I believe it makes it so much more appealing. You have a lot of pockets and organization space, a HUGE plus whether you're a mom or just a busy woman always on the go. The outside of the bag has 5 large pouch pockets and 1 cell phone pouch, which is a signature design of Thirty-One bags. The way it is styled, you have 2 pouches on one part of the bag, one pouch on each side (perfect for drinks, bottles, etc), and then a large snap pouch on the back of the bag. Above that is where cell phone pouch is located. So a lot of places for when you have to "grab and drop" things in the bag and don't have time to actually put them away. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/3f/fb/b5/3ffbb5e2b854b4c7dfbb839602f65ef7--thirty-one-.jpg
