Hip sling, bum luggage, waist packs–no matter you name the favored small luggage that you simply put on round your center, I really like them. Fanny packs are my favourite sort of on a regular basis bag, making it no shock that it’s the sort of diaper bag I regarded for when my first baby arrived.
There are a couple of diaper-bag-style hip packs on the market, however some appeared too costly for with the ability to carry solely the naked necessities. I needed one thing that might double as my very own purse and nonetheless maintain a couple of child requirements, like further garments and a bottle. After searching round, I stumbled upon the Diaper Pack from Béis. Whereas it regarded a bit of cumbersome, I used to be excited that it had a bit of extra room (and a greater price ticket) than different choices, like the Kibou.
After greater than a 12 months of utilizing it, I can verify: This bag is the whole lot I hoped for.
The Diaper Pack has a big middle pocket, with two exterior pockets. The entrance exterior pocket is rectangular and zippered to carry diapers, and it suits three to 4 diapers comfortably. That entrance pocket additionally has a pass-through cutout to succeed in the wipes storage within the middle pocket. It’s helpful, however I often simply take out the wipes container. I discover wipes to be an enormous problem on their very own with out some extra material between us.
The again exterior pocket is open-topped and is designed to carry the included altering pad. I don’t discover that the altering pad suits into it completely after a 12 months of my folding it; it is extra sq. than rectangular and stands out the highest, however it’s not annoying. If something, it makes the pad a bit of simpler to seize. Whereas it won’t be probably the most sanitary place to stow one thing, the open again pocket is the place I am going to throw my telephone or keys in a pinch.
Inside, the middle part is far bigger than your commonplace fanny pack. It has card slots on one aspect to carry three bank cards, a key hook, and a mesh pocket to stash these wipes. I often don’t use the cardboard holders, since my husband and I alternate utilizing this diaper bag, so I throw my pockets inside.
That giant middle pocket makes it a bulkier bag, however that’s additionally what makes it so nice for a diaper bag. It virtually looks like a small backpack, however one I can entry from the aspect or hip as an alternative of getting to drag it off my again each time my child is thirsty.
So many diaper hip packs can match solely wipes, diapers, and a altering pad—perhaps your keys and some bank cards, however nothing else. These luggage give attention to having a super-slim profile and being actually designed for less than diaper adjustments. I’ve tried one among these and felt it was simply too small to essentially be helpful. Even my husband (who retains his pockets and keys in his pockets, so he would not want room within the hip pack for his stuff) didn’t like how small these kinds of diaper luggage tended to be.
