Diaper Bag for 3?

I know there have been many posts about diaper bags, but with twins on the way, I am still searching for one that will easily accommodate 3 in CDs.  I would prefer a backpack style, but that is not a deal breaker.  I have been looking at the Petunia Pickle bottom Abundance, but none of the patterns are really my style and are not DH-approved... but I can probably let that go too if it means a bag that will actually work.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Diaper Bag for 3?

  • I would just use a regular backpack. I used a plain ole L.L. Bean for a few months, and only stopped because it was too big for just one LO.

  • Why not just a backpack then?  That's what we have.  Diapers and wipes go in the big pocket, a change of clothes goes in the front pocket, rash cream and other little things go in the side pocket.

  • Yeah, for 3 I'd do either a regular backpack or something like the JuJuBe BePrepared. I have 2 and use the BFF, but that would be way too small for 3 in cloth.

  • I thought about that, even looked at some, but my biggest pet peeve about my current bag is that everything seems to just fall to the bottom of the bag, which I think would be an even bigger issue in a regular backpack.  I really use all the pockets I currently have...

  • Yeah, the lack of pockets thing is also keeping me from really wanting to use a backpack when DS2 arrives. I like having individual places for things. I still haven't found a bag I want b/c I really don't want to spend more than $60-75, but I'm eyeballing some of the Pottery Barn bags. (I had no idea they made bags until last week, but I love the classic lines!)

    I also have the JuJuBe BFF and ditto, I would NOT recommend it for 3.  :) 

    I agree with the others about a regular backpack.  If you want more pockets, I would look into having someone on Etsy sew a custom insert/divider for you.  I have something like that to turn my purse into a camera bag (a padded divider for camera, lenses, etc), and it works great.  The backpack + divider would likely still be much cheaper than these ridiculously expensive diaper bags.

  • Maybe look at backpacks for photography equipment? They have a ton of different compartments and pockets.

  • You could get a travel toiletry bag for organizing your essentials in a regular backpack. Eagle Creek has some nice options.


  • If you want a diaper bag and not a backpack, the JJB Be Prepared is probably the right size. It doesn't have backpack straps, though.

  • Take a look at hiking day packs - like from REI or Columbia or somewhere similar. The day packs usually have a few extra storage pockets that you can stuff things into so everything doesn't just fall to the bottom.

    Babies. They scare me.
    LLOL, me too.

    Good luck with that.

  • I have a boken backpack and like it, but don't think it would work with 3 in cloth (unless I'm doing something wrong with my 1!)

    what about something like this with pockets on the outside:
