When you’re on the road (or just at the park!) with baby, you have your hands full. So you’ll want a diaper bag that’s easy to access and holds all your things. Luckily, there are plenty of sleek backpack diaper bags that let you tote all of your little one’s gear while still having your hands free.

Backpack diaper bags offer all of the space a regular backpack provides, but they usually come equipped with built-in baby must-haves, like insulated bottle holdes, a wipes carrier and the all-important changing pad.

And while a backpack diaper bag feels more casual than some of the handbag-style diaper bags, there’s one that fits every style–and budget.

How to Choose a Backpack Diaper Bag

A few things to consider as you shop:

  • Fit: How big is the bag? Does its shape and size fit your body size comfortably? Would it work for other caregivers as well?
  • Comfort: Look for wide straps that’ll distribute weight evenly. Padded ones are a bonus.
  • Storage: Pockets are critical! Look for a big, roomy main compartment with plenty of smaller pockets suitable for stashing all your baby basics like bottles, clothes, toys and diapers, of course. A few easy-to-reach pockets on the outside are must-haves for storing parent gear like your keys and phone.
  • Extras: Stroller straps let you attach the diaper bag to your stroller. So it’s a bonus if your bag includes those too.

Here are some really great backpack diaper bags we think make parenting life a little easier.

Roomiest Backpack Diaper Bag

The Skip Hop has plenty of room for all of your baby’s (and your) gear. The main compartment has an extra-wide opening and oversized pockets big enough to stash a laptop, diapers or a change of clothes. A large front pocket holds two storage cubes so you can keep everything organized (think: snacks in this cube, changing supplies in the other) and it has two bottle holders.

Easy-to-Clean Backpack Diaper Bag

You’re going to set your diaper bag down on all sorts of dirty surfaces and something is bound to spill on the inside (hello: diaper cream, apple sauce packets and Cheerios). But with the BFF diaper bag, you don’t have to worry about it. The Teflon-coated fabric resists stains and the crumb drain at the bottom of the bag makes shaking out the yuck so much easier. You can even toss the bag in the washing machine. Nine pockets and two insulated bottle holders keep everything organized and a memory foam changing pad keeps your baby comfy. Choose from prints and colors and wear it as a backpack, messenger or tote.

(For more traditional backpack styling, check out the Ju-Ju-Be Be Right Back with the same stellar functionality at a slightly lower price.)
