Thanks for stopping by my About page! My name is Carol Manse and I run and manage the site here: DiaperBagsGuide.com.

Like many of you out there, I was first introduced to just how useful diaper bags were when I had my first baby. What I didn’t know at the time was just how many different types of them there actually were.

I remember looking online to try and find some sort of simple guide with decent reviews. To be honest I could not find one, that simply gave me the information I needed, in a simple to understand format.

I did find A LOT of information and plenty of sales and marketing options. In fact, it was so much information, that I felt a bit overwhelmed by most of it. I just wanted something simple where I could compare prices, the various features, quality, and in an easy to read and use format.

Now, while there are a lot of lists or Youtube videos from people sharing what their opinions of what the best diaper bag on the market is; I saw those as just that…opinions. Personally I would have much preferred the opinion of an actual Mom.

Why I Made This Website

I appreciate opinions and I also like to read reviews before I spend my money. I also like looking at the cold hard facts and comparing directly. Dissatisfied with the lack of comparison guides for diaper bags out there, I decided to create my own.

After spending many hours of research and analysis, I’ve put together what I call the Ultimate Diaper Bag Guide! Its a complete table that allows you to view the information you want to see on the top diaper bags on the market at any given time.

I get really passionate about getting good value for money so I feel like I have provided a valuable resource based on the available information that is out running wild on the internet today. Probably more than anything else I want to buy products that do what they are supposed to, are durable enough to last and finally offer me good value for money.

My goal with the site here is to give you the information you need in an easy to digest format so that you can make the best possible diaper buying decision based on what matters to YOU. Yes, I will be providing my own opinions and input along the way, but when it comes right down to it, you might be more concerned with price than the number of pockets on the bag.

As I do more research, I’ll be providing in-depth reviews of different bag styles and videos of my own tests with different bags and more comparative analysis.

Review Criteria

review criteriaIf I have bought and used a particular brand of bag I will tell you that. Likewise if any of my friends and family have used one I will be able to give you their opinion, along with my own, to help you make a better decision.

If I don’t have that information then I normally check out reviews at different websites like Amazon and other retail stores. They do provide you with some really valuable information but you do have to dig around to find it.

Ratings and reviews are very important though so I think it is worth the effort. When I find these I do read them and then simply summarise them for you. That should help speed things up.

I am also a member of a few parenting forums. On there people do share their experiences with diaper bags that they have purchased. They share both the bad and the good so when I find that, I will also include that in any reviews that I am doing.

I see little point in having a website that does reviews if it does not include the bad stuff. I may review a bag and if it is getting bad reviews then I will be the first to tell you. I don’t want to waste my money buying something that is clearly rubbish, so I won’t be recommending those to you.

Diaper Bag Accessories

There are different accessories you can get such as stroller attachments, wet bags and organizers. I will also include information on those and indeed, I will also include some general information on the world of babies. There are many things to include and I do hope that you find them enjoyable to read.

I will also be including a lot of informational articles about diapers generally. As you know these are one of the biggest costs that any parents will face when they have just had a new baby. It will be useful to know which are the most popular, the best value for money and of course have a look at the debate between regular diapers and disposables.

In short, I hope my site here will help you find the best diaper bag for you.

Thanks for reading,

Carol
