While many gravitate to diaper bag tote, the backpack is really the holy grail for busy parents. It allows you to carry everything you need for a day out while remaining hands-free to hold little hands or pushing a stroller.
My boys are no longer in a stroller and don’t wear diapers but I still love carrying a diaper bag for the organization and comfort it provides on a long day out.
