August 10, 2016Diaper bags go stylish for fashionable moms
August 10, 2016
Cool diaper bags aren’t just for moms. Bag companies realize dads want stylish, functional bags that aren’t so overtly feminine.
“For the longest time, diaper bags weren’t designed to be gender-neutral. As a result, backpacks were basically the only alternative dads had to a functional diaper bag,” said Deidre Drewes, marketing manager, 7AM Enfant. “There was a void in the market, and brands are beginning to adapt to the needs and desires of new dads. Even though moms still make a majority of the buying decisions in the family, it’s nice to offer dads diaper bag options to make them feel included as well.”
Here are a few of the newest styles designed with fathers in mind.
