Choosing a diaper bag backpack no longer means you have to compromise style or functionality. Free your hands so you can focus on the important things, like running after your free spirited toddler or buckling up your baby’s car seat.
The main reason I switched to a backpack was that my large over-the-shoulder bag kept weighing me down and didn’t have enough designated organization. It was frustrating to always be digging for the item I needed.
In my search I’ve learned that not all diaper bags are created equal and since there is an overwhelming number of options, I thought this would be a great product to review.
WHY CHOOSE A BABY BACKPACK?
As Moms, aren’t we already juggling enough? That doesn’t have to include our kids and our baby bag.
It already takes much longer to get out of the house but having an organized backpack that you can throw over your shoulder at the last minute makes a huge difference.
It’s a MAJOR PLUS that my husband is willing to wear it as well.
WHAT SHOULD YOU BE LOOKING FOR?
I originally chose an over-the-shoulder diaper bag because they tend to look like a large trendy purse. The problem with a large purse is it’s inconvenient when you’re carrying a car seat, baby, your coffee – you get the idea.
I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve received on how sleek and stylish this backpack is. The biggest bonus (so far) is that my husband doesn’t mind wearing it. Like most men, he didn’t feel comfortable wearing the “purse look” even if it was for the kids. A backpack is much more versatile.
I prefer black or gray but if you’re more adventurous they also come in a wide variety of different colours.
It’s important to be able to reach for what you need QUICKLY when you have a baby on your hands.
That’s why having places designated for each item is what matters most in a diaper bag. This backpack has over five inner compartments, three entry points and strategically placed zippers that make it incredibly functional. There is even a secret compartment for your phone, wallet or keys!
It also has enough space to keep both my kids belongings in the same bag without feeling crammed.
Anyone else have a husband that asks you where something is even when it’s right in front of them? Seriously, this bag is so well laid out you will not have that problem! The front opens easily and has 3 insulated bottle holders.
I especially love that there is a pocket at the back of the bag that unzips, so when you need something at the bottom you don’t have to dig through the top to find what you need. It has two side pockets (one has an opening because it’s designed to fit an open bag of wet wipes) and comes with stroller straps.
If you are looking for a bag based solely on organization, then hands down you’ve found the winner.
What’s the point of buying something if it’s not going to last? I’ve been impressed with how well this bag holds up.
I owned my first backpack for a year before I bought a second. The only reason I bought a second was because I was pregnant with baby #2 and needed a separate bag for when our toddler was in daycare. I still use both.
Another great feature is when you open the bag on the ground, the zippers have bars sewn into them that allow it to stand by itself. It makes it ideal for diaper changes or when I need to get multiple items out of the bag at once. The waterproof lining makes spills easy to clean.
As I said earlier, I own two and both cost me less than my first diaper bag. I hate wasting money. If you have an Amazon Prime Membership then you will be happy to know it also has FREE 1-day delivery. Yes mama’s you heard that right!

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE?
I heard a friend say they had a hard time fitting three Tommee Tippee bottles in the front pouch (can only fit two) but I use the Philips Avent bottles and haven’t had that problem. I also don’t typically store 3 bottles. I like to fit 1 bottle, 1 travel breast pump and 1 back-up travel formula.
I’m willing to over-look those things because they aren’t deal breakers for me. You be the judge!
