The Ultimate Daddy Diaper Bag
I’m so excited to tell y’all about the coolest diaper bag I’ve ever seen! Seriously. Check out this guy just chillin’ at a rooftop bar in Nassau.
After half a dozen ^subtle^ hints, I realized that this plan wasn’t acceptable with any of our current diaper bags. (^actually I had a plan all along, but it was funny to watch him try to hint around about it^)
This makes sense because Moms like to be prepared for every contingency. Dads, on the other hand, want to get in and get out, quickly and efficiently, with as little fuss and hassle as possible.
However, in my opinion, the two most convenient features are the top pocket and the bottom flap.
The top pocket is the perfect depth for diapers. Unzip, pull out a diaper, done. And it’s big, too. Keep in mind I have 3 in diapers or pull-ups. Do the math. A designated diaper pocket that easily holds 10 diapers is better than a designer handbag.
And the wipes flap on the bottom!! Where have the you been all my life?? The sheer astonishing why-didn’t-I-think-of-that-genius almost makes you want to ugly-cry. And it’s okay if you do, because the wipes are handy to mop up your face.
These two features are why we almost never leave the house without this bag. Even with the every-contingency bag, changing diapers with this thing is too convenient to leave it at home.
Exhibit Two: Did I mention that I have three toddlers? and that they’re all boys? Even a ^quick trip^ to the grocery store requires a plethora of snacks. The Dadgear backpack has me covered. We call this pocket the snack pocket and it will hold plenty of snacks for my guys.
Unfortunately, exhibit two also shows us probably the only thing I would change about this bag. And I think it’s an issue that comes up because of the by dads/for dads design. Dads don’t think about changing pads. So while there is one included, it seems as though there should be a more convenient way to store and access it. SuperDad doesn’t see this as an issue because he never uses it anyway. Which I try not to think about.
Finally, I submit to you: Exhibit Three,
The largest pocket unzips all the way around to open flat, so you can find things more quickly, without digging around. And it holds A LOT OF STUFF.
Full disclosure: when it was time to photograph the backpack for this post, I literally walked over to our diaper bag rack (yes, that many diaper bags used to be necessary around here) and pulled this down and started taking pictures. It stays packed for a trip to the park or a dinner out. I wasn’t kidding about hardly leaving the house without it.
