Diaper bags are such a convenience for us to carry around all of the must-have items our baby needs while we are out and about. While many of us try to find the perfect diaper bag for us, we sometimes forget to ask dad what kind of bag he wants to carry around when he’s out with the baby.
Although convenient, my husband preferred not to carry around my diaper bag when he was with our daughters. He hated that it was so bulky and hung off of his shoulder. He ended up grabbing a backpack and putting all of the girl’s items in the bag while he went out.
Much to his (and my) delight, there are a lot of diaper bags that cater to all dad’s needs. They have a masculine look to them and have enough room for both dad’s things and baby’s necessities.
Check out my favorite diaper bags for dad after the jump!
