Diaper Bag Backpack




Being a mom has made come to terms with the fact that I will most likely be sporting a backpack at one point or another, and I think I'm okay with it. I will do almost anything to free up both of my arms / save them from any extra weight, since I will have 2 little boys under 2. 

I'm even more okay with the idea of a backpack diaper bag when they are all as cute as these ones above, but I'm having such a hard time deciding which I like best! 

Here's the options (help a sister out!): 

Also, my plan is to get a fun kids backpack to keep most of Camden's things (diapers, change of clothes, etc.) that will stay in my car at all times. That way I won't need room for ALL of his stuff (maybe just his sippy cup/snacks?) along with baby brothers in this one bag alone. Has anyone done this and actually succeeded? I have high hopes! ha. 

1. Kate Spade New York Nylon Backpack: How cute is this one?! I absolutely love the colors and cute pockets on the front. It's also nylon which I'm a fan of because you can wipe it clean very easily. Oh, and it's currently 40% off. Do I need this one? or... 

2. Ju-Ju-Be Legacy Be Right Back: This is the bag I've heard the most rave reviews about. Everyone  seems to love their Ju-Ju-Be! Is it worth the price? Yes? No? I'm undecided, but I really, really like the fun (and neutral) pattern, the overall features it has, and since there is so much hype about it that makes me believe it is a great option. 

3. Herschel Supply Co. Dawson Backpack: Navy and stripes. I repeat, navy and stripes! Right up my alley with this one based on looks alone, and it seems to be a really great size. The downside to this one is obvious - it's canvas. Sooo hard to keep clean! Good price, though.

4. Skip Hop Forma Backpack: This diaper bag is another favorite so I hear! And at only $70 it's definitely the least expensive option. I love that it's all black so I can easily make Billy hold it/carry it if need be, but I worry about the quality. Will it hold up well? Hmm...

Alright girls, give me your vote! 1, 2, 3, or 4? 

PS: This has absolutely nothing to do with diaper bag but look at Cam's new shirt. I can't even handle the cutenes and cannot wait to see him in this come July! (and of course, his little brother in a matching one! you can find this big bro shirt/and sibling matching sets here

  1. I have the JuJuBe one and love it. It is a little hard to keep it organized inside though so I have a few smaller organizer bags inside to keep things separated. Our daughter just turned one and it has held up really well. Amazon will have deals on some of the older prints if you aren't super picky. I was able to get mine there for around $100

  3. 2 and 4 are my vote...I really love backpacks for a little later. And there is a great brand called Dad Gear that makes cool backpacks too! http://www.amazon.com/DadGear/b/ref=bl_dp_s_web_2588032011?ie=UTF8&node=2588032011&field-lbr_brands_browse-bin=DadGear

  4. Backpacks are definitely the way to go! I have the nylon marc jacobs backpack that I love! I like 1 and 2 of your choices! I think the buckle on the third one would be a pain :) Have a great weekend!!!!

  6. I have also been contemplating the backpack diaper bag option and think it will be the most functional for sure! I have been looking at that black skip hop one, but love that fun kate spade one! I'm glad there are so many cute options for back pack diaper bags!

  8. Not to add another one to your list, but I am in love with the Lily-Jade backpack diaper bags. I am trying to decide which one I want, I'm in between the Meggan and Elizabeth. For yours I like #4!

  10. We have #4 and it works great!! Holds up a bunch and the two inner compartments it comes with keep it organized pretty nicely!

  11. I'm glad we made the switch to a backpack with my 18 month old. My vote is #4! The side pockets are a necessity for sippy cups! Also, I'm always packing a little insulated bag when we go places, so I'm jealous #4 has some included. 😊

  12. A friend with two little guys has the Ju Ju Be convertible backpack and I love it! I already got a different bag though so I'm just waiting on a sale to justify buying it lol. Also when my daughter was little she called a toddler backpack with a few toys and change of clothes etc to lighten my purse/bag. It made her feel like a big girl too so it was a win win.

  13. 2 is gorgeous! I have the tote version of 4 and I love it and I'm not paranoid about it getting beat up because the material is so durable and the price is right!
