The baby is crying, and she is in the car seat carrier on one arm. Aloft on the other, you have your standard diaper bag. The baby shifts. You shift with it, but the diaper bag doesn’t. It falls down your arm, hurting you and causing difficulty passing through doorways or making you feel like they should label you with a “wide load” sticker. Does this sound familiar? Well it does to me. Almost every time I go out with a standard diaper bag it seems to be my fate. Luckily, I have found a solution! Enter the RunLikeBaby Diaper Backpack with Changing Pad). Today we have our review of this product as well as a few to give away! So stick around until the end!
The RunLikeBaby Diaper Pack is an ingenious idea that functionally works well. It is a highly comfortable backpack that holds all of what you can put into a standard diaper bag. Availible in black or camouflage pattern, you won’t win any fashion contests with this bag, but as a guy I like the neutral black design rather than sporting the standard purples and pinks that are so common. It actually good on me, or so my wife thinks.
With three pockets (two large, one small) the backpack is quite spacious. As seen in the video, we fit our entire diaper bag into this backpack and it had room for toys, extras, backups, and many other useful things like clippers and sunscreen. This bag has some serious space, and is very well made. The materials are top notch odorless polyester. It is sturdy and has clips to secure contents without shaking them on the sides of the backpack as demonstrated in the video. It is very comfortable for both my wife who is 5’1″ and myself who is 6’1″ to wear. The zippers, handles, and pockets are well made and I could not find an imperfection such as a loose thread on our test model. The handle at the top of the bag is wide and lightly padded to reduce strain on your hand when you pick up the diaper bag.
When I field tested this backpack on my family vacation to Shipshewana, I noticed several things about th bag that aren’t readily apparent. My wife was having me stop every now and then to get a new toy out for the baby. However, this process took less than five seconds whereas pulling the diaper bag from underneath the stroller would have taken a good thirty seconds. I know that may seem small, but when your baby is crying twenty five seconds faster to the solution is always welcome. Another thing I noticed was the weight. At one point I actually sat down on a bench and forgot I had the backpack on. That is how well it fit and how well it distributed my weight. Also, we found out that the inner pocket, meant to hold the complimentary changing pad, also snugly secured my wife’s laptop making this product useful to after the baby has grown up as a lap top bag.
All in all, this is a solid, well made diaper bag available here for $49.99 at the time of this review. If you already have a diaper bag and have some extra funds, I would suggest thinking about giving this product a shot. It has helped my family and I am sure it will help yours!
