With two that are mobile, I’m finding that a convertible backpack diaper bag is really helpful. My little ones are growing so fast! I mean isn’t that something that sounds so cliché’? Words that all parents murmur every time they look at a photo that’s even a mere six months old? But it’s true! This time last year when I shared what was in my diaper bag packed for two, we were still in the murky waters of both an infant and a three-year-old going through potty training. Now, here we are a year later with a walking toddler and a 4-year-old, who is not only fully potty trained, but making the transition to “big kid” a little more every day.
I mean right now I’m hearing about what all the other preschoolers have in their lunches and how he REALLY wishes he could try a fruit roll-up. He just KNOWS that it will taste delicious because Zoe’s mom packs them in her lunch. Clearly Zoe is very cool!
With the year that has passed we have gone through so many changes, including our changing needs in what and how to pack the diaper bag.
With two that are mobile, I’m finding that having my hands free by using a convertible backpack diaper bag, like this Louise bag from Newlie, is really helpful. Whether it’s for opening up the endless snacks we seem to go through or for quickly snatching up Max from touching anything and everything he shouldn’t, being able to transition from over the shoulder to hands free is great!
The Newlie Louise bag has been a great addition as we made this change. I love that it still feels stylish and can work in multiple ways. We recently went to the aquarium for a family day and when we arrived were told that all strollers had to be parked. AHHHH! If you have kids you are probably screaming with me right now. That meant two kids mobile the entire time in a huge crowd of people. I seamlessly changed the Newlie from using the handles to a backpack and was able to grab those hands tightly faster than you can say, “Look Mom, jellyfish!”
I also love that it has an insulated pocket on the inside, great for snacks and milk that need to be cool. The Louise is also made of a water resistant nylon so you don’t have to worry about it getting gross or spilled on. Let’s face it, sometimes with kids we just need to wipe EVERYTHING down! It also transitions into a cross body bag for another hands free option. I’ll be doing an update on what’s in my diaper bag soon, but in the meantime I’m thrilled to be looking fab and not too weighed down with this convertible backpack diaper bag.
