Diaper bags are a necessity during the first years with your baby (or at least as long as your baby needs his or her diapers). Most diaper or changing bags come with a wipe clean baby changing mat, which is an absolute plus when you are traveling or when you are going outdoors; to friends, to a park, etc.
Within the Winter 2011 / 2012 collection of the Dutch ‘Oilily‘ brand we found a few outstanding diaper bags designs from the ‘Russian Tale‘ and ‘Spoetnik‘ collection.
Oilily’s ‘Spoetnik’ collection, Spoetnik is Russian for ‘fellow-traveler’ or ‘companion’. This collection lives up its name perfectly.
The Spoetnik Diaper Bag has a detachable and adjustable shoulder strap with snaps for easy attachment to your stroller. Inside; zipper mesh pocket, diaper matras, 2 open pockets with elastic on top, 1 open front pocket and 1 zipper pocket on each side, including Bibi doll, bottom protection studs. Price € 149 at www.oililyshop.com international shipping available (for American mums; Oilily Diaper Bags are sold on www.zappos.com with free shipping within the USA, Oilily Diaper Bags at Zappos costs $ 220).
