Diaper bags have come a long way, baby. We now (rightfully) expect them to hold everything — and look chic. Here are our latest favorites.

The legions of nonmoms already addicted to Dante Beatrix bags will love the Luxe Baby Tote — black and quilted cream leather on the outside, nylon inside. (From day care to dancing in one bag.)

So many items, so little space. That may be true of most totes but certainly not the Becky PB&J bag by Wake. Made of British canvas, Italian leather, and coated linen, it has six inside pockets, easy-open outer pockets, and room for magazines and makeup. Wake also makes sporty versions for dad.

Speaking of, Ju Ju Be’s latest for poppa is a nigh-indestructible Teflon-infused khaki messenger bag. The orange padding means it’s phone- and PDA-safe. Remove the center pocket, and it can double as a laptop bag.

Luxury gets a waterproofing in the new metallic bronze-lined leather bag by Timi and Leslie. It’s revved up with gold hardware, a changing pad, a wristlet in Chinese brocade, and outside pockets for mom’s accessories.

Because, heaven knows, it isn’t all just about the baby anymore.
