What’s in my diaper backpack: toddler edition

I’ve fought this whole diaper bag thing for a while. I totally embraced it when my kiddo was an infant, but just didn’t see the point in investing in another bag after he was running around and soon-to-be toilet trained.

My last diaper-friendly bag broke and I was using a regular handbag…which is just not good when you frequent the park.

Then a few things happened to open my eyes on how a new diaper bag would be a really good investment (and how badly I needed one):

  • My kiddo leaked all over when he had a LOT to drink one day at the park, and had no extra change of clothes
  • All my toddler cups leaked in a loose bag, they needed sturdy pockets
  • When snacks run out, meltdowns happen…my bag only could hold so much
  • And like I said, my strap broke on my last bag

So I went on a shopping mission, my favorite kind. I needed a bag…
  • That would be light and easy to carry
  • Has lots and lots of pockets and compartments
  • Has a wetbag
  • Has some insulation
  • Has an easy pocket for my cell phone
  • Was easy to rummage through
  • Feminine yet unisex
  • Trendy, but afforadable

It was a tall order. And after lots of research (and a few girlfriends with backpacks) I decided to get a backpack. I never really considered myself to be one to use a diaper backpack, but have you read about my super hyper, active toddler boy? Yup, sometimes this mama has to run fast and at the drop of a hat.

After a lot of research, review reading, internet stalking and picture viewing I finally picked my bag.

Y’all – this bag is legit. It is 5X lighter than any bag I’ve used (diaper or otherwise) and it holds so much more.

So, for those of you wondering what you should pack for an active toddler that isn’t toilet trained yet, here are my suggestions:

All of this, fits into this one light and chic bag. And there’s tons of room for more.

Best part is the price, this awesome diaper backpack is less than $40. Who needs a designer $120 bag? Not me. And this one is hubby approved.

Do you carry anything different in your bag? I love hearing about other’s ideas!

After using several bags, including an expensive diaper bag, I finally found the BEST bag out there. I break it all down for you on my blog post - spoiler alert: you can fit everything in it and it's super light!! #diaperbag #mom #momlife #toddler
Even my husband loves our new diaper backpack. And it fits everything with tons of pockets. Perfect for an active toddler and parents! #dad #mom #toddlerlife #backpack #baby” width=”735″ height=”1102″ />

  1. How Cool! I seriously wish that I had a backpack type of bag when my daughter was little, It’s so hard to carry everything, because those Diaper Bags never ever stay on your shoulder.. LOL! I love the color you picked too!! Super Cute!

    1. Girl, for real! I was so tired of it falling that I started to just leave my bag in the car. Then the real chaos came! Glad they make these backpacks look chic now!
