Charitable Idea: Jennifer Garner's Baby Bag

04/06/2007 at 10:30 AM ET

Every mom knows that you need baby bags to hold a ton, but you still want them to be as stylish as the rest of your wardrobe. But sometimes that is harder that it should be. Luckily, Coach has stepped up to the plate with their Healthy Child Baby Bag, $348, in a new “scribble” design. Big enough to cart everything and stylish enough to save you from that gooey Mommy-and-Me look, the bag comes with a diaper changing pad, plenty of pockets and a detachable shoulder strap. The bag is only available on Coach.com, and 20% of online sales will benefit Healthy Child Healthy World, an organization that educates parents on how to create healthy environments for their children with cleaner, safer choices at home. No wonder moms like Jennifer Garner, Brooke Shields and Monet Mazur are already toting it.

I’m going to buy it! This bag is adorable!

lauren on

i love this bag! i would buy one if it wasnt a diaper bag..

lacy on

i actually can’t really stand the scribble bags. logo bags in general really bother me, unless it’s super subtle. at least the scribble theme goes with the diaper bag.

Heather S. on

Love it!!

Lauren – they do make handbags with the scribble pattern! See: http://www.coach.com/content/product.aspx?product_no=9367&category_id=68 (which is also much cheaper for $178!). I just love Coach and I love that they work with such wonderful organizations. Too bad my son is too old to need a diaper bag anymore. LOL.

I don’t like anything where the label or name of the designer is the sole design of the bag. Most of the bags Coach makes are just their logo. Logo designs are not my thing, but I can see how this would be a cute diaper bag, it’s pastel, feminine and flirty.

i LOVE anything coach! i wish i had a kid just so i could carry it! LOL!

Dawn on

Someone do the math on this 20% of 368 online sales? This is another thing look we are donating money look how wonderful we are. When they wouldn’t really loose all that much money if they gave all online sales to the organization….

I am a big fan of the Coach line but, first and foremost, I am the mother of a 4 year old boy –when I discovered I was pregnant and went on the “quest for the diaper bag”, I really was’nt interested in anything with logos, in baby colors or that could not be used past the diaper phase. What I finally settled on was a diaper bag by LeSportsac (for about half the cost of the Coach diaper bag); it is available in lots of patterns that change seasonally, comes with a changing pad as well as a smaller bag for carrying things, lots of useful and well placed pockets and it can be tossed into the washing machine with no problem.

That is the cutest diaper bag I’ve ever seen! Almost makes me want to get married now and have babies, lol.

$348 for a canvas bag? People will pay to be a walking advertisement for Coach?
Anyone who says they would buy this bag is buying it for the logo and that’s it, otherwise there is no way to justify $348 for a bag made of scribbles and canvas.

This is not fashion, it’s insecurity and trying to prove you are something by wearing a logo.

My best friend works at Coach and i saw this bag! They have the bag in smaller sizes and its the same colot if you dont want a baby bag. But personally, i wouldnt wanna waste money on it. Cuz kids dont stay babies forever so once they’re older, they wont need a diaper bag.

Christina on

I love it! I so wanted one like that last season… Coach is the cutest!!!

lucy on

JK….I’m w/you. I make it a point never-ever to advertise w/logos. It feels cheap, like I’m saying, “look at me”. I believe in meekness. I would much rather buy a leather $120-$175) Fossil bag & have a little $ left over for some shoes? I don’t have to make a statement of anykind and I CAN AFFORD to spend $348 on a bag…I just choose not too!

Maggie on

I think the bag is totally adorable– be a mom in style! But it is probably way too expensive for us non-celebs…

beth on

cute bag- but i might get tired of it after awhile. it is nice how it is helping benefit charity though.

d on

I have a coach diaper bag and I actually use it for work. It holds my laptop and the pockets are great for water bottles. And you can use the padded changing pad to protect the laptop when traveling.

C on

Looks like a bag for a teenager, but at that price I’d never buy it for my daughters. I like something a little more sophisticated and reasonably priced.

AnnieM on

I’m with Lucy and JK. I started collecting leather Coach bags in 1988 – I have at least 30 bags. Now that they insist on putting the logo on everything and making all these cloth bags – we’ll, they’ve lost me as a customer – it’s an end of an era for me. I can afford them, but choose not to buy them.

natalie on

What mother can afford to spend that on a diaper bag?! It’s not even attractive! That’s ridiculous. I would never spend that much money on a bag. My bag cost $40 and it looks cooler and I can use it as a giant purse if need be. Yeah, 20% goes to charity…but that’s still a whole lot going to Coach. I’ll pick my own charity thank you.

gladis on

that bag is soo cute !
too bad that i dont have any kids,maybe i’ll still get it…

crystal on

I thik she’s crazy.That bag is worth ALOT of MONEY!

Emma Johnson on

i usually choose diaper bags which are made of recyclabe materials to help the environment not just your babies.*’-

Riley Cooper on

i have disposable diaper bags at home and they really make life easier.`,
