Hip sling, bum luggage, waist packs–no matter you name the favored small luggage that you simply put on round your center, I 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 appeared for when my first little one arrived.
There are a number of diaper-bag-style hip packs on the market, however some appeared too costly for having the ability to carry solely the naked necessities. I needed one thing that might double as my very own purse and nonetheless maintain a number of child requirements, like additional garments and a bottle. After looking round, I stumbled upon the Diaper Pack from Béis. Whereas it appeared slightly cumbersome, I used to be excited that it had slightly extra room (and a greater price ticket) than different choices, like the Kibou.
After greater than a yr of utilizing it, I can affirm: This bag is every little thing I hoped for.
The Diaper Pack has a big heart pocket, with two exterior pockets. The entrance exterior pocket is rectangular and zippered to carry diapers, and it matches three to 4 diapers comfortably. That entrance pocket additionally has a pass-through cutout to succeed in the wipes storage within the heart pocket. It’s helpful, however I normally simply take out the wipes container. I discover wipes to be an enormous problem on their very own with out some further 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 matches into it completely after a yr of my folding it; it is extra sq. than rectangular and stands proud the highest, however it’s not annoying. If something, it makes the pad slightly simpler to seize. Whereas it may not 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 normal 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 normally don’t use the cardboard holders, since my husband and I alternate utilizing this diaper bag, so I throw my pockets inside.
That enormous heart 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 a substitute 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—possibly your keys and some bank cards, however nothing else. These luggage concentrate on having a super-slim profile and being really designed for under diaper modifications. I’ve tried one in all these and felt it was simply too small to actually 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.
