Thankfully for the purse-obsessed, diaper bags have come a long way. If you’re a fashion forward, gadget-hooked mom, the pickings are a-plenty. From a custom avant garde look to incognito stylish totes, you can now step out of the everyday without compromising style with functionality and comfort combined. And if you’re of the more discerning type, you too needn’t compromise. Today’s changing bags look so good you’ll have a tough time convincing your friends that it really is a diaper bag. (Psh, or don’t… we won’t tell!)
