    Default Tell me about your backpack style nappy bag

    With baby #2 coming along, I'm looking for some hands free, equal load across shoulders nappy bag options.
    What do you have? Do you love it? Are they worth the cost? Or should I just use a normal 22L day pack that I have hanging around the house?

    Hey there :-) i just use a normal cheapo backpack from target. I like how they just have one big space and one or two little pockets on the outside. I separate things like nappy stuff and clothes by putting them in large ziplock gladbags.
    The proper nappy bags annoy me with all the little sections coz i nlcan never remember which section ive put stuff in and sometimes the secrions arent big enough to hold what's supposed to go in there. And it pees me off that a nappy bag is just basically a bag with a huge mark up coz its sold to mums to be lol so im idealogically opposed to them. I figured for 20 bucks if i hated it and realised i needed a proper nappy bag i could get one later. And its just plain black so it suits/matches and i can use it for other stuff rather than something printed with baby style prints.

    i have this and it’s so good!! small carry handles plus back pack straps. it’s hardy durable fabric outer (wipe down with damp cloth to clean) and fully lined inside so it’s waterproof. i love all the little sections and compartments, makes it so easy to stay organized and you have full access to everything inside the bag because you aren’t rifling through it. i have all my bits (change mat, wipes, nappies etc) in the little compartments which leaves the guts of the bag free for other stuff. the front zipper section is also an insulted
    bottle holder.

    dh was very skeptical of the bag as i kinda bought it on a whim but even he’s admitted it’s good.

    i think it’s ships from the US so that price is in $USD. i think it was around $125 once i converted to $AUD. definitely not cheap but i’ve been impressed with it so far.

    We got a baby gear branded one from toys r us.
    It's not pretty, but it's practical. I can pack everything for my newbie and my 4yo for a day road trip

    I plan to use a Billabong backpack I started using with my first but realised I could go smaller so I use a Kmart one with just 1 kid. When #2 arrives later this year, I figure the Billabong one will suit. It has a couple of compartments which I like but not too many.

    My approach has always been start cheaper and if it works, bonus, if not, I don’t feel guilty upgrading.
