The *Clutch* Diaper Bag Alternative

When I first started with this mom business 5+ years ago, I wouldn’t leave the house without a massive diaper bag stuffed to the gills. But as I’ve upped my mom game, I’ve learned to travel lighter & smarter. My clutch accessory for outings is now an actual diaper clutch!

Logan + Lenora Diaper Clutch ($21 on LoganandLenora.com, this one on sale for $16 on Amazon).

Behold, the Logan + Lenora Diaper Clutch! I bought it on a whim, after finding myself venturing out with 3-4 diapers, a pack of travel wipes, spare onesie, spare breast pads (in the early days), and diaper cream, all in a Ziploc bag. This baby is a lovely replacement for that Ziploc. It holds all that essential gear, is machine washable, and has a handy wet bag compartment for dirty/wet clothes or diapers.

Other benefits: it’s bright (easy to spot when I throw it into my tote/purse, under the stroller, or in my husband’s man bag); super convenient to tuck under my arm when going to change baby in a public place; and so cute, I’ve used it as a going-out handbag in a pinch while on vacation.

I’m obsessed with it, and it is my most recent new-mom gift, along with a couple of coordinating wet bag pouches (so handy to have for snacks, bottles, mom stuff, baby stuff, etc.) and the awesome Daytripper travel wet/dry bag. (If you order from Logan + Lenora directly, you get free shipping, and they send it to your recipient with a gift note in cute polka dot tissue paper with gold glitter tape!) I’m all about “baby gifts” that are really for the mom. 😉

We use the Daytripper for our weekly swimming lessons.

Logan + Lenora Daytripper ($39) and Clutch.

It easily fits a towel, swim cap and suit, goggles, baby wetsuit, change of clothes — and keeps all the wet stuff separate on the way home. Perfection. And again, so cute.

So moms, if you and your shoulders are tired of lugging around a huge diaper bag, consider working a diaper clutch into your rotation! Check out Logan + Lenora’s on Amazon and on their website — they are great quality, and have lots of adorable prints to choose from. I’m loving the aqua and polka dot, and the aqua with deer.
