With my first child, I HATED the idea of a backpack diaper bag. I have always loved large shoulder bags and I wanted to continue life with the cute accessory. However, diaper bags have a way of getting heavy. Like really heavy. Especially when we went from one to two children. With an infant in the carrier and having to bend down and move around with my toddler, the bag would fall off of my shoulder constantly. A backpack solves this problem and enables me to have my hands free.
One evening I transferred our diaper bag contents into a not-so-cute old backpack that I’ve had since high school. Sure I didn’t want to be seen wearing it, but it was WAY more comfortable! Fortunately, backpack diaper bags have become popular so there are a lot of cute options to choose from. Many of them practically look like a cute handbag! I now use a backpack diaper bag and haven’t looked back. These options are a medium size for the day-to-day. I also really like this one for travel, since it’s a bit larger and more gender-neutral I feel good about making my husband carry it 😉
Do you have another backpack diaper bag that you love? Tell me about it in the comments 🙂
