As a mom on the go, I’ve found what works best for a busy lifestyle. So far, in my first two years of “mom-ing” I’ve learned that I will have to carry a thousand thins. Think carrying a water bottle for you, and your kiddo, carting a bag of library books you need to return, and trying not to drop your latte amidst chasing an active toddler around the park. This scenario is a pretty familiar one, and as mother’s, we’ve all been there. This is why I’ve proclaimed that every mom should use a back pack. Because being hands-free is invaluable.
FOUR REASONS EVERY MOM SHOULD USE A BACK PACK
A backpack allows you to be hands-free.
The scenario I mentioned above is almost a daily occurrence. I’m so glad I have my backpack because I can throw the essentials in there and forget about them on my back while I have my hands full of drinks, children, and other things that can’t be toted on my back. I wore my backpack to the library the other day and didn’t have to set it down and worry about it getting taken. I was able to keep it on while looking for books to read with Grace. I love being hands-free.
It holds so much more.
The Baggallini Gold Brussels laptop backpack has three different compartments to hold different items. I keep diapers/wipes and other bigger items in the middle. I keep snacks in the very front compartment, along with essentials like chapstick, band-aids, etc. Believe it or not, I also fit my laptop in there most days in the very back compartment. I never know when Grace will fall asleep in the car, so it helps this working-from-home, on-the-go mom keep my tools with me all the time.
Babywearing is much easier with a backpack.
If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I still wear Grace on the front. She loves being worn at grocery stores, and places like Costco because it makes her feel safer. I’ve tried to use shoulder or cross-body bags while babywearing, but it just doesn’t work out well for me. It results in me pulling way too much weight on one side. A backpack is definitely the way to go to distribute the weight and make moms more comfortable.
Padded straps make it much more comfortable.
This is a huge one for me. As moms, we carry around a ton of stuff. Which usually results in a pretty heavy bag. My critique of most diaper bags and mom bags is that their straps are flimsy and unsupportive. This isn’t the case with the Baggallini backpack I have. The straps are dual-padded which makes for a very comfortable carry. (Think long days of trucking around the zoo!) Yet another reason you might want to think about investing in a backpack!
