As the kids grow, and their daily needs change, our daily outings have changed with them. It is much easier to make day trips and haul fewer things along with us. Gone are the days of diaper bags loaded with diapers, bottles, wipes, and pacifiers. They are still young, however, and we do still need to pack a fair amount of things like water bottles, snacks, and my usual purse items. Using a backpack like my Azaria Toddler has become my preferred way to haul around our necessities when out and about. It keeps my hands free and takes a lot of the strain off my shoulder from carrying a tote – plus it has a removable strap so you can wear it as a crossbody or shoulder bag. The best part, is it still serves the organization and storage functionality that a diaper bag does. There are several mesh pockets as well as zipped pockets on the interior. My favorite part is that the side pocket is wide enough to hold my cell phone!!
Azaria Brand has larger bags as well if you are still in need of a diaper bag or something with more storage. Check out their other beautiful bags here!
