When you’re trying to stuff your bag full of baby essentials, tossing in a blanket seems preposterous. Of course that doesn’t mean you won’t need one, but diapers and bottles are definitely more essential. Enter the Chic & Cozy Blanket Bag ($45).
Available in a variety of prints, the machine-washable bag has four handy pockets to organize your cell phone, wallet, bottles, etc. When you get to the park, the playground or the pool you can easily open the bag into a 29 x 38” blanket that also serves as an extra large changing pad. When in bag mode, the Chic & Cozy can be carried four ways — as a shoulder bag, tote, stroller bag or backpack. The exterior is soft and water-resistant while the inside is made with plush terrycloth.
It won’t replace your regular diaper bag, nor is it big enough for toddlers or big kids to play on. But it’s still a handy thing to have around when moving your little one from place to place.
