There are an awful lot of diaper bags out there of all shapes and sizes from many different brands, and all of them claiming to be the best. One great way of making your decision is to simply just sort out the best ones that you can afford to buy. To that very specific end I have tried to do that for you to save you searching around.
Parents will all have different budgets that they can afford to spend on the many things that they have to buy for a new baby. Sometimes that list can appear to be endless, when you think of car seats, strollers, cribs, the nursery and then just the simple day to day running costs of basics like diapers, wipes and creams.
In this article I have tried to break these down by price, and trying to find out what are the best quality bags you can get, for the money that you have available to but one.
Average Price of Diaper Bags
I have seen diaper bags as cheap as $10 and all they way up to a rather silly $250+ I am not quite sure who has the money for those, but good luck to them if the have. After a lot of researching and reading and listening to many reviews, I can tell you that diaper bags tend to fall into three main price categories. They are:
- Diaper bags for under $30
- Diaper bags for under $50
- Diaper bags for under $100
So to make life easier and allow you to buy a bag that suits your budget, I have made top 5 lists for each of the categories that you can find below. That should help you pick out the best rated bag for each of those budget areas.
Please note the ratings that I am using here are taken from the average rating awarded by actual buyers over at Amazon. On that website they rate any product that they purchase out of a maximum score of 5. Anything over 4 is considered to be a good rating and those at 4.5 and above are excellent ratings.
You can click on any of the images to go and read more detailed reviews on any of the bags.

You can pick up a really good range of diaper bags for less than thirty bucks. I have included below 5 of the best rated ones that are currently available. There really is no reason to compromise on quality either as the competition, at this price point is still high, and that is good news for you the consumer.
