I’ve never been a backpack girl, even as a kid I wanted to carry a “cute” tote- think carpet bag- to the 4th grade (with giant cat heads) instead of a hot pink backpack that went passed my butt… because as we all know I was, and still am, a shorty.
When it came time to get Maddie’s diaper bag I naturally chose a shoulder bag. I stand by that choice. It’s served me well these past two years and has been incredibly durable. Still not a scratch on it! (If you’re a tote girl like me, check out the one I have below):

And while I still use and love my big diaper bag, sometimes I find it a bit too cumbersome, especially now that Maddie is getting older and going out involves much less “stuff”.
When we recently went on a trip I borrowed a friend’s backpack diaper bag thinking it’d be easier to carry around an airport. And boy was I right. I’m not kidding when I say it was LIFE CHANGING.
Sadly I had to return the diaper bag to her after the trip, but I am now on the search for one of my own. I haven’t pulled the plug yet, but here’s a list of some of my favorites:
