** Find out where to buy at the bottom of this post.
All the things I did with baby #1 are slowly coming back to me, like the fact that I’m going to be carrying around a legit diaper bag again. At this point, I just throw some snacks, a diaper, some wipes and a water into my purse and go; Naomi doesn’t need a full-on diaper bag anymore. A newborn, however, is going to require many things to be toted around, if we ever plan on leaving the house. I also recall that carrying a heavy tote around on my shoulder AND a car seat gave me some serious neck and shoulder pain, which is why this go-round, I plan to use diaper bag backpacks instead of totes.
I’m really not buying much for baby #2, and I’m certainly not asking for much, so the few things I do want and need, I’m spending a lot of time thinking about. I’ve been looking for a cute and stylish backpack diaper bag, one that doesn’t actually look like a diaper bag, even though some of them are. I’ve never cared for the cheesy and babyish prints on most diaper bags, so I know it needs to be a neutral color: black, gray or metallic, something that goes with everything. I don’t want to have to change bags every time we leave the house. I also need it to be big enough to carry all of the baby’s things AND the few things Naomi needs. In other words, it needs to be both cute and functional, and to be honest, there’s a lot of functional out there, and a lot of cute, but not a lot of both.
Would you consider diaper bag backpacks instead of traditional diaper bags?
