Once you are a mum, your diaper bag will become a close companion. Choosing one can be overwhelming, and it can be surprising how much stuff one little person needs or may need to leave the house for any given period, so choosing the right bag to cart all of that around can be challenging.
We have selected our favourites and here’s why we love them!
Backpack style diaper bags are fast becoming a favourite amongst mums, and dads for that matter. The practicality of a backpack, particularly for travelling makes them an excellent option for reducing strain on your shoulders or when perhaps your travel stroller will no longer accommodate a heavier sling type of bag. This option from Twelvelittle comes in a range of colours and is made from water-resistant soft quilted fabric. It has two large front zipper pockets with the large front mommy zipper pocket having a key leash for easy access. Inside, you will find two insulated bottle pockets, one slip pocket with magnetic closure and a tech pocket for putting away small items. What we love is the hidden zipper pocket on the bottom of the back for dirty item quick storage. This bag also comes with a changing pad.
There is nothing worse than being out and about and your phone going flat – ok maybe a diaper explosion is worse. The latter, we can’t always avoid, but with this diaper bag staying charged while on the go is a breeze. The bag has a built-in power bank that connects with a USB port to charge your phone, no need to open the bag. The fish-mouth design top opening makes the large space easily accessible. There’s an opening in the back of the bag with a waterproof pocket for soiled items. In the front of the bag, it has three bottle holders that are separated from the rest of the bag and is insulated to keep the milk cold or warm for 2-4 hours. This design also comes in a range of colours and designs.
In the favourite print of the season, and frankly, if you ask us a print that never goes out of style, this leopard print diaper bag is one to consider.

Inside you will find two elastic top slip pockets for bottles, diapers or wipes and an additional hidden pocket for dirty or soiled clothes storage. Comes with a changing pad and adjustable webbing long strap with an adjuster perfect for either across the shoulder use or hanging across your stroller.
