Many parents prefer the idea of having a backpack style for their diaper bag. For many parents this will mean that they can carry their bag on their back, which in turn leaves both hands free. When you have a baby to care for, then having two free hands is a very clever idea indeed.
Another great benefit of using a backpack style is that it helps with the weight of the bag. Rather than have it draped over one shoulder, the weight gets evenly distributed over the back and shoulder areas. It is also really handy for those who have to walk a lot, use a stroller, or even like to jog with a stroller.
They are becoming more and more popular all the time. if you are someone who is used to carrying a backpack for any reason, then I don’t really need to tell you any more about the many advantages these have.
Reviews of the Top 5 Selling Diaper Backpacks
I thought I would do short reviews of the top five backpacks that many people use as diaper bags. Just below that you will then find a table, and in that you will see side by side comparisons of the top 5 diaper backpacks, so as you can do direct, side by side comparisons.

This backpack came in at number one on our list. There are just over 300 reviews and it has maintained a pretty astonishing 4.5 out of 5 stars. This comes in around 26 different colours so you should be able to find a particular colour combination that you like best.

Graco Gotham Smart Organizer Backpack
Most buyers describe this one as enormous, very well made and good value for money. Over 125 buyers rated this one 4.5 out of 5 stars so again, you should know from reading those, that is a good quality backpack from a very reputable brand.
One reviewer said this,
“I had a messenger diaper bag for the longest time, but I decided to change to a backpack because we were flying to visit family. I am so glad that I did! This backpack has so much room for not only the diapering essentials, but also a change of clothes, snacks, toys, and even items that I need to have on hand.”
Skip Hop FORMA Backpack
At number three on our list is this one from Skip Hop. This one costs around $70 and like the other two listed is also made from polyester.
As you can see there is a padded look and feel to this bag. Almost 100 buyers rate this one at 4.2 out of 5 stars. That is not as good a rating as the two above of course, but it is also still a good rating.
This one can hang neatly on a stroller, has dual zip opening, elastic interior pockets and a front section that opens quickly for easy access. It also has two bottle pockets on the outside. Where most people complained about this one was because the straps were not that comfortable.
