“Wow, your hands are full!” Yes, yes they are. Because of those types of comments it was imperative that my diaper bag be out of the way.
A few months ago, I saw one of my favorite Instagram-moms (is that a thing?) post about this backpack before it launched. I fell in love with the color so I set an alarm on my phone for the launch day so I could snag it ASAP!
I’ve used it for about 4 months (once as a carry on Bag for a flight) and ever since baby #2 has graced us with his presence. I am seriously still in love with everything this backpack offers. Hands down, my all time favorite diaper bag.
From Skiphop’s Website:
So, you can see by the product details that the backpack really has a lot to offer in terms of space and comfort. It WILL NOT let you down. I can pack this sucker with everything you need for a toddler and baby and it’s still so comfortable. The color is awesome, the space is awesome, it’s trendy but not over the top.
I also used this as my carry on during a flight. I packed it with Cameron’s necessities and mine with zero problems. I was terrified I would feel like a junior high kid with a backpack full of textbooks but it is kind of crazy how sturdy the bag is without adding a lot of weight.
The leather version comes in three different colors and they also have a neoprene camo/black version. Would it be crazy for me to have 5 diaper bags? Hmm…

My Diaper Bag essentials for 2 Under 2
Let me just start by saying… why are kids so needy? I’m joking. But seriously. Each kid needs 500 different things to keep them sane in public and even then sometimes I’m stuck toting out a screaming toddler or running to the car because someone pooped all over me. #momlife
This front zipper pocket is “mine”. I keep my wallet, glasses and keys here when we are out. I should probably invest in a smaller purse but it’s easier to chase after a toddler that only knows how to run with a backpack. Ha..ha… The smaller pocket inside is perfect for phones except the iPhone plus sizes womp womp, don’t care! I usually throw any last minute things in here. It’s a structured pocket so it doesn’t flop around or bulge even when it’s totally stuffed!
The main compartment is gigantic! Again, this backpack has an awesome structure so it pretty much maintains it shape really well no matter how full or empty you have it packed.
What’s In My Diaper Bag…
For mom: Wallet, Glasses, nursing pads (ugh)
For sister: Food (she has a snack cup we bring with us and a cup of water, if we don’t all hell breaks loose ha!), Sippy Cup (fits perfectly in the outside bottle pocket), Hair ties (they get ripped out constantly so I keep extras on me), I also have a sticker/coloring book in the back pocket to entertain her if need be.
For brother: extra clothes, burp cloths
Diapering/Health: Diapers, Wipes, Changing Pad Trash Bags, Boogie Wipes, hand sanitizer (Maui from Bath & Body Works) Nursing Cover, Car Seat Cover, Wrap carrier.
IT ALL FITS! And doesn’t feel like my back is going to break in half while I carry it. Most of the time I have the wrap in the car and the car seat cover… on the car seat, but you catch my drift. Load this sucker up! I’m super impressed with this backpack.
I’m not crazy about colorful/cartoon-y diaper bags so this is a great alternative. It matches my style and I’ve gotten a lot of compliments. Most people think it’s just a generic backpack, but nope! This is for mamas!
What’s your favorite diaper bag?
