1. They Are Convenient

No shoulder straps sliding everywhere around...

Simply: both of your hands are free... When you travel with your toddler you have so many important issues to worry about. Your baby has so many energy to spare, he/she is always in the move and always hungry for more adventures.

I know what I'm talking about! I admire my little Maria (1,5 years old) and her endless energy. She is able to travel around our kitchen table even 20 times without stopping for a while!

When you're busy watching your toddler and managing other things during travel, it is very convenient to carry the diaper bag on your back. A standard shoulder style diaper bag, with its shoulder straps sliding everywhere around, is just inconvenient.

With the backpack diaper bag it is easy to feed your little one, clean his hands or adjust his clothes and you don't have to think too much about it.

Soft changing pad and removable wipe dispenser are included. The fancy feature, I really like is, that this bag has an outside pocket for holding DVD player. You can easily entertain your little one with no inconvenient holding the player in your hand. With Okkatots Diaper Bag Backpack you can always be sure you have everything you need.

2. Multiple Storage Space

Many padded compartments

We all know these situations. We're travelling with our toddler. He starts to cry. We need to pacify him as quickly as possible. So we start to rummage through all our things to find his favorite teddy bear...

Ok, I've been going through this and probably have you. This is the situation we all would like to avoid. It is important to have all necessary things well organized. And this is what I love in the backpack diaper bags. They come with plenty of padded compartments. Inside and outside. So you keep all accessories for your baby exactly where you want them to be.

You can quickly and easily find what you need at the moment. And the quicker you find it, the quicker your baby will be happier. Both of you are satisfied.

3. Travel With Comfort

Avoid a shoulder strain

Travelling with your little one means often holding him in your hands. If you must, at the same time, carry a diaper bag on your shoulder, it gets uncomfortable.

Furthermore, when you have to carry your classic diaper bag on your shoulder for a longer period of time, you'll most likely suffer from shoulder strain. (Especially if you travel a loger distance and your bag is heavier because of being loaded with many necessary thigs.)

The advantage of the backpack diaper bag in this case is, that the weight of the bag is spreaded evenly on both shoulders. Additioanally, you can adjust the shoulder straps to fit the bag more securely on your back.

Your opinion? - Which diaper bags are better in your opinion

Do you have any experience in using one of them? Maybe you had opportunity to use both. Or maybe you just want to say which style, YOU think, is better...

Enough space for your personal belongings

When you compare a standard, shoulder diaper bag and its backpack version, you'll find out, that backpack models have more space to offer. So you'll no longer have to worry, where you can safely place your wallet, cell phone and keys.

Need to finish some work on your laptop? No need to worry. Now most models of Backpack diaper bags are equipped with a special compartment for to carry your computer. So if you manage to find some free time, you can finish your work while your toddler happily enjoying the time in the playground.

5. Perfect For Mommy and Daddy

Choose from all possible designs

Another feature, I love about diaper bag backpacks is, that they are available in designs, which are not gender-specific. This is a good news especially for dads... They don't have to worry about going out to the playground with a diaper bag covered with pink butterflies, cute bunnies or lovable red dots...

The unisex models will look just perfectly no both ladies and gentlemen. Of course, there are a lot of these backpacks, you can choose in designs for ladies/girls. There also countless options for dads/boys. Personally I would choose a versatile design, which me and my wife will feel comfortably to go with.

No need to think twice about buying a backpack diaper bag. It is your best option for carrying your toddler's things so you can be on top of your toddler's needs while enjoying your outdoor adventures at the same time.

      I see more and more men taking care of babies (and I love it). I think the backpack version is ideal, since it frees up both of your hands (better to hold onto baby with).
