Diaper bag shopping might be one of the most stressful items you will shop for. You want that perfect bag that will fit everything you need but doesn’t really look like a diaper bag. Believe me I totally get it! My kids are not in diapers anymore, but I wanted a backpack that was stylish and could hold a lot of stuff for when I travel with my 4 and 5-year olds. Here is what I found!
I went to a lot of big box stores, spent hours looking on websites and Pinterest until I found the Chelsea Downtown Chic Diaper Backpack from Skiphop! Let me start by saying this bag is amazing! It was everything I wanted, it was stylish that it wouldn’t look awkward carrying it while I was dressed up and still looks great as I strolled DC and Phoenix! One of the thing I love about this bag was the material it was made out of, it is the perfect material for moms, anything that gets on it just whites right off. In Arizona my family and I went on a Jeep tour of the Broken Arrow Trail in Sedona, my bag had a lot of red dust all over it and all I had to do was whip it right off.
The other thing that was really important to me when I was looking at backpacks was that the straps had to be comfortable and didn’t dig into my shoulders when too much stuff was in it. This bag met all my expectations, not once did I have to readjust the bag or take it off to give my back and shoulders a break. The cup holders on the side made it easy for my kids to take the water bottles in and out of the bag themselves without needing my help, MAJOR PLUS!
This bag has a lot of room inside so no matter if you have babies or older kids you will not run out of room for all their stuff. On my flight to Arizona the bag held, 2 Nintendo DS’s, an iPad, 2 kids headphones, my camera, activities to keep my girls busy on our flights, a gallon size bag of snacks, 2 water bottles, my little make up bag, and my wallet. Plus, I still had some room if I needed to put anything else in there! It fit everything I needed without making them have to carry their own bag, which we all know I would have had to carry at some point.
If you are a brand new mom or a mom that will be doing a lot of traveling this coming summer I highly recommend this bag. This bag is perfect for moms of multiple children and children of different ages, it will fit everything that they both will need. It does come with a changing mat, along with the straps that give you the option to have the bag hook onto a stroller. Skip*Hop did an amazing job designing this bag with moms in mind, they truly made sure that you would not have to buy a different bag at the different stages of child raising! Great job Skip*Hop, I am in love with my bag!
