Lucia has been quite the little traveler over the last two months of her life, aka since birth, literally. She's been up and down freeways visiting family and grandparents almost every week. After the first few times of just throwing all her cute little outfits and overnight needs into a canvas tote bag, I realized maybe it would be a good idea to invest in a real diaper bag. Luckily Farfeach reached out at about the same time and asked if I was open to styling a diaper bag! Of course, I was ecstatic, Farfetch has the best curation of chic and covetable items so I was thrilled to go through their bag selection and pick out a diaper bag that was more "me" and my husband since he would be wearing it a lot too. Read more about the bag I picked and why below. Head here for the full article on FarFetch.

Why have you chosen this particular bag?
I've always said I'm not going to wear a diaper bag that looked like one and this sleek Tiba + Marl backpack certainly doesn’t look like your average ‘diaper bag’. It even looks masculine enough for my husband to wear! I also liked that it's a backpack, making it easier to travel with Lucia while carrying around her stuff.

What are the essentials that you carry for yourself and Lucia in your bag?
For Lucia, I carry diapers, wipes, a fresh onesie, blanket, muslin cloth, a bottle of milk (if we are going on a long trip) and a pacifier. I carry snacks and chapstick for myself!

Where would you and Lucia go for a fun day out?
She loves looking at bright things and the sights of the city, so we'd pack our Tiba + Marl backpack and head out for a long stroll in the city. We’d then end up at a cafe so I can grab a coffee or wine during her nap once we get to our destination and maybe even pop into an ice cream shop on the way back home!

Why would you recommend investing in a designer diaper bag?
I've always believed in quality over quantity. One good bag is way better than ten mediocre ones. Plus, your kids will probably want to use it for themselves one day.

Will you continue to use your bag when you no longer need to carry diapers?
This backpack is so sleek I will definitely be using it once Lucia is no longer a baby. I'll be carrying it to work —  laptop, notepad and even gym clothes in tow.

Is there any advice you’d give to first time parents when choosing the best changing bag?
Know what you need the bag for, as in identity what you'll use the bag for makes picking the right one easier. For instance, this Tiba + Marl one is perfect for a day trip as it fits the essentials. Also, make sure there are lots of pockets and that it's comfortable enough to tote to and from.

Big thanks to Farfetch for sponsoring this post!
