When your hands are already full with babies and toddlers, you don't need anything else weighing you down. Diaper backpacks keep all of your and your kiddos' essentials organized and out of your way while you chase after your littlest ones.

These chic designs are our favorite picks for storing wipes, diapers, snacks, bottles, extra clothes, burp cloths (the list goes on) — all while you're on the go.

Best Everyday Diaper Backpack


Beloved brand SkipHop knows kiddos and parents. The structured frame of this diaper backpack has a wide opening — that stays put — to give a clear view of everything you've stowed inside. Lightweight and sporty, the double top handles make it easy to grab, and adjustable backpack straps allow you to have both hands free while keeping up with kids.

Best Diaper Backpack for Organization

$54.96 $46.96

With 17 storage pockets and six zipper compartments, the KeaBabies Explorer Diaper Bag Backpack has a place for every essential and will keep you nice and organized while chasing after babies and toddlers. Waterproof and durable, the comfy backpack has insulated pockets for bottles, a large changing mat and two stroller hooks.

Best On-the-Town Diaper Backpack


Made from vegan leather, this style-meets-function diaper bag can be worn as a backpack or messenger style. The top opens wide with a half-round zipper to provide easy access to all your kiddo's essentials. Six interior and six exterior pockets provide plenty of compartments to keep everything completely organized. The bundle also includes a changing mat clutch, a bottle holder bag and a pacifier case.

Best Diaper Bag with Changing Station


Though every diaper bag has a changing pad, we love how the Petunia Pickle Bottom Diaper Backpack zips out as a complete station and is removable when needed. With a spacious interior and multiple pockets, the wide opening gives you easy access to everything inside. Plus, you can tote this diaper bag as a backpack, crossbody, on your shoulder or with its top handle.

Best Budget-Friendly Diaper Backpack


Get all the benefits of the most expensive diaper backpack without the price tag. This classic bag, available in 12 trendy colors, boasts 16 pockets including insulated bottle compartments, a padded laptop pocket and a mesh diaper organizer. Thick padded shoulder straps allow you to carry all your baby's necessities with comfort, and the lightweight, waterproof fabric is durable enough to last for years.

Best Large-Capacity Diaper Backpack


With a 35-liter main compartment, this diaper backpack was made for the long haul and multiple kids. A dedicated pocket for baby wipes keeps them always readily accessible, and the included diaper changing pad is large enough for toddlers. Breathable materials and contoured straps make this diaper bag ready for a shopping trip or a long hike.

Best Water-Resistant Diaper Backpack


With three carrying modes — backpack, crossbody and stroller — this luxe diaper backpack is the ultimate in versatility. In addition to a removable caddy, there are 12 pockets and compartments, including three exterior insulated ones that keep food and bottles hot or cold. The best part? The 100-percent recycled nylon fabric is water-repellent and easily wipes clean.

Best Machine-Washable Diaper Backpack

$195 $117

No matter how careful you are with sippy cups, snacks and wet clothes, accidents happen. The clever design of the JuJuBe BFF Diaper Bag Backpack lets you throw the entire bag into your washing machine to keep it like new. In addition to detachable, adjustable straps that let you carry the bag as a backpack, messenger bag or tote bag, it also has a plethora of pockets for baby and parent necessities.

Best Easy-to-Access Diaper Backpack

The Honest Company

Parents love the zip-down opening of The Honest Company Cross Country Diaper Bag, which provides easy access to everything inside. The lining is wipeable, so it's simple to clean, and there's a smart combination of compartments: exterior and interior pockets, as well as large insulated ones. The bag is made from vegan leather and can be worn as a backpack or converted into a crossbody bag.

Best For-Any-Style Diaper Backpack


Designed by parents of four, this functional diaper bag is neutral enough for mom, dad and any style. Convenient stroller hooks give your back a break while keeping the bag easy to access, and 10 pockets ensure that everything has its place. Two accessible insulated pockets keep bottles and snacks cold, and the included oversized changing pad makes diaper changes a little bit easier.

Best Diaper-to-Everyday Backpack


If you're looking for a bag that will last you long after your baby is out of diapers, this is your pick. Part tote bag, part backpack, the Go by Goldbug Side Carry Diaper Bag Backpack is sleekly framed and provides maxed-out storage for all of your and your baby’s needs.

Best Doesn't-Look-Like-a-Diaper-Bag Backpack


The tailored design of this diaper backpack is as stylish as it is functional. Keep all your basics (and then some!) organized within the 10 pockets and roomy interior, and effortlessly adjust the bag to your comfort, wearing it as a backpack, crossbody or purse. The spill-resistant vegan leather exterior has a magnetic front flap for a no-zip closure.
