Why This Sh!t Worked For Us:
We love the lightweight fabric, chic quilted design, and hands-free convenience that you don’t always have with a tote. The extra wide dual zip opening reveals a much more spacious interior than I initially perceived. Spare diapers slip easily into one of the elasticized interior pockets; in the other, we store a travel-size spray bottle of Honest Soothing Bottom Wash (for super messy occasions) and other small essentials. On afternoons when Sydney happens to nap in her stroller, I like to have my 13″ MacBook at the ready to duck into a coffee shop or park at an outdoor cafe; it seamlessly slides in and out of the interior changing pad pocket. The cell phone pocket within the front section is a little too small for an iPhone 7 Plus, but it’s perfect for keeping lip glosses, hand lotion and other travel-size beauty essentials in one place. I use the two insulated side bottle pockets to hold my sunglass case, a bottle of water or other quick-reach items, but my favorite features are the storage cubes that fit perfectly into the front section. One storage cube is insulated for baby bottle and food storage, and we keep a spare set of Sydney’s clothing in the multipurpose mesh cube because diaper blow-outs have their own set of Murphy’s Laws.

New Parent Tip: Never leave home without extra diapers and a spare set of season-appropriate clothing. To alleviate any last-minute headaches when we’re trying to get out the door (leaving home with a baby is often subject to punctual dysfunction), we immediately replace any used items (e.g., diapers, soiled clothing) in the bag each time we return from an outing, so that the backpack is ready to go whenever we are.

NYC Space-Saving Tip: We store the Forma Diaper Backpack on the handlebar of our stroller using the clips conveniently embedded into the shoulder straps. Since the stroller sits by our front door, everything is ready to go when we are.
