There are two types of parents in the world: those who prefer a diaper bag crossbody, and those who prefer a diaper backpack. Ultimately, you have to go with the bag formation that feels most natural to you — after all, you're the one who has to use it daily. But if you're on the fence, let us fill you in on the unique benefits of the diaper backpack.

They're often more ergonomic, for one, because the weight of the bag gets evenly distributed across your shoulders and waist. They don't always look quite as diaper bag-ish as more traditional models, which can be nice, and lets the bag do double-duty as a work bag when you need one. They leave your hands free to take care of your little one. And if you think it would be harder to get at the contents of a diaper backpack while on the go, compared to crossbody diaper bags, think again: smart design choices means that diaper bags often have plenty of external pockets that are easy to access when you need to, say, grab a water wipe while actively pushing your stroller down a grocery store aisle.

We pulled together the best diaper backpacks on the market in 2023. These picks will stand up to the tests of time, tantrums, and toddlers — we promise.
