Diaper Bags That Do Their Duty

danzo diaper bags!

Note to self: Never leave the house without a bottle. Addendum: Try to remember where you put note to self.

Say good-bye to chronic new parent disorganization with a Danzo diaper bag. The stylish line of carryalls tackles both forgetfulness and Bermuda Triangle Syndrome with clear Velcro pockets on the inside. Handy labels (bib, diapers, medicine, mommy) let you create your own personal checklist of essentials. What’s more, the bag zips all the way down the sides, so you can see that you have everything before hitting the road.

Choose from four styles: a roomy canvas tote, a slouchy nylon hobo, an oversize retro bowler, and a messenger bag. Each one comes with a cute, ducky changing pad. Just don’t forget the baby.


Available at Eggy, 8365 West Third Street, between Sweetzer and Orlando Avenues, West Hollywood (323-658-8882 or shopeggy.com); Poppy Store, 225 26th Street, between San Vincente Boulevard and Montana Avenue, Santa Monica (310-260-4777 or poppystores.com). To see styles, go to danzobaby.com, $195-$280.
