I was just wondering if anyone tried to “match” their diaper bag to their baby’s gender. For example, when you found out you were having a boy did you automatically look for something that looked boyish or had boyish colors? And vice versa for a girl.
We found out this week that we’re having a little fella (YAY!!) and I’m still planning on getting a bag that matches more my style and if it happens to be this color, so be it. I figure that I’ll be the one carrying the bag and it’s more mine than my son’s so it’s okay for it to be girly if that’s how I am. My husband slightly disagrees so I was wondering what other people thought?

Originally I went with the theme of munchkin’s nursery. Winnie the Pooh. (we have a boy) The bag was brown and green. Now I have this bag, it is more masculine, but more functional for my taste. It is an OI OI Diaper bag, that so did not pay full price for.

I’m with you. No matter what team we are on as of next week, I’ll still get a diaper bag that suits my taste. I love the raspberry bag you selected! I don’t see why you need a blue or “boyish” bag because your LO is a boy. Go for it!

Here is my Coach diaper bag it is very girly but will be used if LO is a Boy or Girl.

In my opinion, the diaper bag is for the mom and not the baby.
I’m having a boy, and I’ve bought these two diaper bags:

I have never understood why diaper bags are all babyish (and they seem to be much less so now). It doesn’t go in the baby’s room, the baby doesn’t carry it, the mom does. So you’d want all those special pockets and functional things, but I would want it to be my style. And my style is pretty girly 🙂

I opted for the Coach diaper bag in black. Having a little girl but I figure black wont show the dirt as much and when the baby is out of diapers, I can use the bag as a carry all for those long days out when mom needs to hold everyones hats/jackets/sunglasses etc.

My husband also disagreed. He thinks that if the bag is girly then people with think our little one is a girl instead of a boy. I actually have 2 diaper bags, both which I guess are more boyish than girlish. DH bought them, so he won the argument lol.

I think you should each get a diaper bag, just get him a cheapy one, maybe even used, that is more manly. yours should reflect YOUR style not the babies sex. That’s what my hubby and i did. he has a cheaper black carters and i have a more femme one.
Oh and cute bag by the way!!

It may have his stuff in it, but I think the diaperbag is for you all the way! I am buying one that I like the look of…something that looks like a handbag I would carry, only bigger.

we arent pregnant yet and dont have any kids… but were ttc! and we fell in love with these! regardless of the sex of the baby, these are our two favorites. one for me and one for daddy!

We just bought a green and black one that DH wasn’t going to be too mortified to carry around and that could potentially be good for babies of both sexes. Most of our big stuff is gender neutral too even though we know baby is a girl- if we have boys in the future I don’t want to have to either buy a whole new schwack of stuff or put them in a pink jolly jumper, haha.

I was more concerned with finding one that I felt my husband wouldn’t feel silly carrying around…we’re Team Green, so we don’t know WHAT we’re having, but I wouldn’t base it on the sex of the baby. This is the one we put on our registry:

Lol, I didn’t even think to ask DH about his preference! He was there when I bought it though. We ended up with a brown one with pink lining that is completely lined in clear plastic. The space is great and it was only $2 at a garage sale in perfect condition. Definitely not a statement out my personal style or reflective of our baby/nursery theme 😉
ETA: Just asked DH what he thought of our diaper bag and he said that he didn’t care what it looked like because “it’s just a diaper bag.” Easy to please I guess!

I am very glad that most of you agree that just because I’m having a boy doesn’t mean that I can’t have a girly for mommy diaper bag 🙂 DH isn’t too vehement about it, he just thought it was odd that I still wanted to get one that doesn’t absolutely scream baby boy.
I must say, you ladies have some GORGEOUS diaper bags. They’re like mommy eye candy 😉
