With the hundreds of diaper bags on the market, it is so easy to get overwhelmed. Trying to figure out which style is right for you should be the first step you take. I’m here to inform you about a style that many moms don’t consider, or don’t even know about. The diaper backpack is the new diaper bag style that is solving many mom problems the classic tote diaper bag brings.
THE CLASSIC TOTE
THE DIAPER BACKPACK
The diaper backpack is the new holy grail of diaper bags, especially the VAUVA diaper backpack. It solves just about every problem I mentioned the tote has. I highly recommend getting a diaper backpack with padded straps, your shoulders will thank you later! Especially if you like to “wear” your little one in a wrap or carrier, you can also wear your backpack without having to worry about it falling off. Since I had a cross body bag before, I realized every time I would put my baby in her carseat it would fall off or get in the way and it was so frustrating. The diaper backpack solves that little problem and makes that transition much easier.
Many moms overpack their diaper bag, which is largely due to the size. Do you really need 3 blankets, 5 toys, 5 extra sets of clothes and 3 swaddles if you are just going grocery shopping? I highly recommend getting a small diaper backpack, like the Vauvapack, that has a few pockets designated for the necessities. It is so much lighter and easier to find what you need when you need it. You are probably thinking that have to take it off to get things inside and that is inconvenient. Yes that is true, but most backpacks have pockets on the side that make it easy to just reach back and grab simple things like your phone or burp cloth. Put those go-to items where you can get them the quickest, and you will not even sweat that you have to take it off.
The diaper backpack is THE style to get. Would you rather have to chase your toddler in the mall with a backpack lightly on your shoulders or a tote in your hands? The choice is yours!
