I’ll be the first to admit: I’m a practical person. I love diaper bags that look like stylish pocketbooks but I know I will never use one. For me, a diaper bag should be two things: 1. Roomy enough to store everything you want to take and 2. Comfortable enough so that both your shoulders can carry the heavy load equally. This is why a backpack diaper bag is the only way to go, in my opinion. The Dadgear backpack diaper bag is both comfortable to carry and has tons of room for over-packers like myself.
First things first: I love that there are so many compartments – 13 total! There’s even a small compartment on top that’s perfect for diapers, called a diaper hammock – I actually use it for dirty diapers (wrapped in plastic bags, of course).
We took the diaper bag for a day out when we knew we’d be out from 8am until 10pm. Due to the mesh pockets being so wide and all the other compartments and pockets so generous in depth, we were able to store tons of diapers, water bottles, snacks, clothes, stuffed animals and other miscellaneous items without feeling like the diaper bag was exceeding its limits.
The diaper bag has two insulated side pockets for bottles and comes with a changing pad and a wipes case. Another feature is a specially designed window for the wipes case that allows you to dispense wipes. We haven’t used it yet – we’ve been using the wipes directly from the case.
In terms of comfort, the diaper bag has straps that are very comfortable so if you want to take it for a long hike you certainly can. We also love that it comes in so many different colors, such as black, blue, red, pink, orange, green and more!
The Backpack diaper bag is sturdy, practical, comfortable and roomy – exactly what every parent needs to make their life on-the-go a little easier.
I was not paid for this post. I did receive a diaper bag for review purposes. There is an affiliate link in this post.
