Want a diaper bag that doesn’t look like a diaper bag? Consider a backpack diaper bag. Not only are backpack diaper bags stylish and (mostly) compact, but they can also be convenient for parents who want to share a diaper bag. These are the chicest diaper bag backpacks on the market.
1. Freshly Picked Classic Diaper Bag
Moms rave about the Freshly Picked Diaper Bag, which hardly looks like a diaper bag. This backpack diaper bag features a large interior storage space, plus 10 pockets. A magnetic front flap means you can quickly close the bag when you’re on the go, and metal feet on the bag’s bottom protect it from acquiring dirt on the ground (though the backpack can easily be wiped clean). The Freshly Picked Diaper Bag is available in a wide variety of neutral colors, plus a leopard print and gunmetal (metallic) option. Bonus: You can also wear this backpack as a crossbody bag or purse.
2. Herschel Settlement Sprout Backpack
Looking for a diaper bag both you and your spouse can use? Check out the Herschel Settlement Sprout Backpack. This sleek backpack diaper bag offers a front storage pocket and side pocket for a water bottle, plus a mesh sleeve. The bag’s interior features the brand’s signature striped fabric liner with an additional storage pocket. The Herschel Settlement Sprout Backpack also comes with a changing pad with meshed wing pockets, which can be accessed via an external zippered side pocket. It’s available in five solid colors and four patterned prints.

3. Dagne Dover Indi Diaper Bag Backpack
Another good choice for parents who want to share a diaper bag, the Dagne Dover Indi Diaper Bag Backpack is as functional as it is fashionable. Standout features include a washable bag for dirty burp cloths and clothes, an insulated bottle holder, a changing mat, two detachable leashes (one for keys and another for pacifiers), two stroller clips, and a luggage handle for travel. The Dagne Dover Indi Diaper Bag Backpack is available in eight color and print variations.
4. Mina Baie Vegan Kinney Backpack – Convertible Cross-body
We’re a little obsessed with the Vegan Kinney Backpack – Convertible Cross-body by Mina Baie. This ultra-sharp handbag features a water-resistant lining, eight internal pockets, four external pockets, and an insulated pocket for bottles. You can also add a neoprene changing pad (sold separately). Extra perks for parents include a padded laptop sleeve, key sleeve, and the ability to wear the bag as a crossbody bag.
5. Mina Baie Harper Backpack – Leather Diaper Bag
Another backpack diaper bag by Mina Baie, the Harper Backpack is the ultimate designer diaper bag. The leather diaper bag features top grain pebbled leather, an insulated bottle pocket, a 13-inch laptop sleeve, and a water-resistant lining. A neoprene changing pad and leather shoulder strap can be added.
6. SKIP*HOP® Greenwich Simply Chic Backpack
The brand that specializes in all things baby gear also makes diaper bags—and not just any diaper bags. SKIP*HOP® makes some seriously stylish diaper bags, including the Greenwich Simply Chic Backpack. Available in four neutral colors, this backpack diaper bag has a roomy main compartment, five elasticized interior pockets, two insulated side bottle pockets, and a convenient magnetic closure on the front. The Greenwich Simply Chic Backpack also comes with a washable changing pad and stroller straps.

7. SKIP*HOP® Chelsea Downtown Chic Diaper Backpack
Another SKIP*HOP® bag worth considering, the SKIP*HOP® Chelsea Downtown Chic Diaper Backpack is more than just looks. It holds A LOT of stuff. You can easily store two bottles (one for you and one for baby) in the side pockets; diapers, a change or two of clothes and toys in the main compartment (along with the included changing pad); and other essentials (such as your cell phone and sunglasses) in the front pocket.
8. Storksak® Taylor Backpack Diaper Bag
We love the simplicity of the Storksak® Taylor Backpack Diaper Bag‘s design and look. This charcoal-colored, unisex diaper bag backpack features seven pockets: two insulated side pockets, an external tech pocket that fits most 13-inch laptops, and four internal pockets. It comes with a washable changing pad, and features ergonomic adjustable padded shoulder straps. It can also attach to a stroller with stroller clips (sold separately).

9. UPPAbaby Changing Backpack
The makers of the cult-favorite Vista and Cruz—not surprisingly—have also created a diaper bag that’s as chic as their line of strollers. The UPPAbaby Changing Backpack is designed to perfectly hang on any of the brand’s strollers, though you don’t have to be an UPPAbaby owner to take advantage of this diaper bag backpack, which features an insulated bottle case, changing mat, and multiple compartments for storage. It’s available in four colors.
10. Petunia Pickle Bottom® META Backpack Diaper Bag
Designer handbag or diaper bag? You can hardly tell the difference with the Petunia Pickle Bottom® META Backpack Diaper Bag, which features three super-discreet external pockets. (You can’t even tell this bag has a pocket for bottles.) You’ll find two more pockets inside. Coordinating stroller clips are sold separately.

11. JJ Cole® Brookmont Diaper Backpack
The JJ Cole® Brookmont Diaper Backpack is especially ideal for parents of multiple children and/or travel, with 15 storage pockets—including a front pocket that holds three large bottles. It also features a 14-inch laptop sleeve, and comes with a changing pad. You can’t beat the designer look or price (it’s under $100), either.
