Best Diaper Bag for Dads

What goes into making a great diaper bag for daddy? A very good question indeed, and one that I have given some serious thought to. It actually impacts on men a great deal more than you would actually first think.

There are of course single Dads to think about, but in the main, the majority of Dads in this area, are usually faced with a strange choice.

Do men just hang in there and go with the bag that their wife or partner has picked, or do they get one that is more manly? When I asked a group of our friends this question, some of the answers were quite astonishing. What we quickly found out and agreed on was that Dad is usually left carrying the bag.

This was especially true for the Moms who are  breast feeding.

We also quickly discovered that guys much preferred a backpack, or some type of sport's backpack to any of the flowery, pastel or big handled diaper bags that we ladies love so much.

Yes, the conversations were that frank and honest. I think that is a good thing though rather than men trying to find "excuses" not to have to carry around a diaper bag. Sometimes we ladies need to have a free hand, especially when shopping, and we don't really need the man in our life, having any more excuses than he already has.

Top 5 Buyer Rated Diaper Bags for Dads

It was easier to ask them and find out what they would pick to carry around so I did. I also checked a few of the so called "men forums" to see what comments I might find on there. Some of those comments I could use but most of them clearly belonged in that strange place known as "man world."
