Today’s tip is short and sweet. We are talking about the diaper bag.
While registering for our baby shower I sent hubby to the diaper bag aisle. Personally, I didn’t have a preference as to what the bag looked like, I just wanted it to be big enough to carry enough stuff for two babies. It was important that hubby would be comfortable carrying our new luggage (so it had to be manly).
We received the bag hubby picked out at our baby shower.
We used it….. for about a month.
Twin Tip: Do not buy a diaper bag.
After about a month of trying to carry two babies in their car seats, and a diaper bag over one shoulder, we gave up. We ditched the traditional diaper bag and switched to a backpack.
We were fortunate enough to receive a hand-me-down military backpack. We love it. It is so easy to throw on the bag, pick up the two littles, and head out the door. Disclaimer: It has not been easy to get out the door since we added twins to our family, but it has been easier since we switched bags.
That’s it, short and sweet.
Have you tried a backpack, or are you faithful to your diaper bag?
