MoMamas wrote to us about the Diaper Valet and asked us to give it a try. It's now part of the standard gear we use for short outings with baby. The Diaper Valet is a small bag that holds a few diapers, a travel pack of wipes and a small changing pad. There's an inner pocket for credit cards or cash and metal ring for keys. We tried one with a short handle which looks like a cute purse. If purchasing for dads, you might want to forego the handle and have something that looks more like a clutch.
For us, the key is one-handed access. The Diaper Valet's velcro fastener opened easily with just one hand and the special pocket for wipes also was convenient. It's small size makes it convenient for quick outings when a few diapers is all you need. Anything longer than that and you'll need your full-size diaper bag. The bag comes in a variety of fabrics, most more calico and charming than ultra-modern. The bag is machine washable. The Diaper Valet is available here starting at $30. We think it would make a useful gift for a parent.
