There has been a resurgence of backpacks in recent years, in particular in for parents. From high-end fashion labels to high street style, backpacks are no longer exclusively for schoolchildren.
With influences from the 80s and 90s retro, the rise of ‘athleisure’ wear, healthy Scandi outdoor living, and the need to transport more ‘stuff’, backpacks are a popular choice.
It is therefore inevitable that baby changing bag companies are adopting this ever-practical shape too, after all, who wouldn’t want the ability to be a hands-free parent whilst maintaining some sense of style, fashion and nostalgia?
Backpacks make the perfect baby changing bags – they are easy to carry, hide plenty of compartments and pockets, are lightweight and have the neat advantage of being usable by both parents.
In terms of health they are also easier on your shoulders, and if you want to attach them to your baby’s buggy or pram that is also normally a possibility (depending on which brand you go for).
Another key advantage is they don’t look anything like ‘traditional’ baby changing bags – meaning that they can adapt to your needs when you’re not with your little one.
With so much to carry these days – suncream, phone, charger, water bottle, spare shoes, so as long as you pick a few squished raisins out of the lining before your future commute to work, no one would ever know!
At PacaPod, 85% of their sales are now backpacks. With a variety of shapes, colours, fabrics and styles, and a unique 3-in-1 organising system, their bags contains two removable pods – one changer pod with mat, and one insulated feeder pod. This means that those pesky raisins won’t infiltrate the rest of the bag.
