Top 8 Nappy Backpacks for Super Busy Mums (and dads)

Nappy backpacks are a popular choice for new parents and it is easy to understand why.  Backpacks take the load off your shoulders which can greatly reduce back pain.They can also free up your hands making life so much easier when out &  about or when you are parent to multiple children.

Backpacks are also super handy when travelling. Many mums swear by a nappy backpack when they are getting on and off planes and trains. Wearing a nappy backpack means you have one less thing to balance and hold when trying to wrangle travel weary little ones. 

But not just any old backpack will do. You need lots of internal pockets to ensure everything doesn’t fall into a big cavernous hole. You need easy access external pockets so you can grab important things easily.  You also need an insulated pocket or two to hold bottles at the right temperature.

You will find that more and more nappy bags are being made with vegan leather. 

So what is vegan leather and why is it so popular in nappy bags? 

Vegan or faux leather is most often made of polyurethane or PU which is a superior material than PVC. Unlike real leather, vegan leather does not breathe and is generally waterproof so it can resist stains and wipe clean. Vegan leather also doesn’t require the upkeep and conditioning that animal leather does to keep it looking its best. The huge bonus is that vegan leather is cruelty free.

With so many styles and options to consider it can be almost impossible to pick the best one for you.  So we have taken the guesswork out for your and created our own list of the best nappy backpacks for super busy mums & dads.
