Are you a cloth diapering parent or simply an over packer? Are you tired of carrying multiple bags whenever you go out of the house with your little one? The Skip Hop Forma Backpack could probably be the diaper bag you are looking for.
The Skip Hop Forma Backpack is one of the most talked about diaper backpacks that boasts storage and style. The bag is well-designed in such a way that you can quickly organize whatever you need for more than a day, even for two kids. There’s a total of 8 very useful pockets that will make every parent’s life easier.
The front-most zippered pocket can keep your hand or diaper creams, your cardholder, and your mobile phone to name a few. It depends on your urgency needs.
I suggest that whatever you need most of the time must be placed in one of the outside pockets. The phone should stay in this pocket since the two side pockets don’t have any enclosure of any type, and they are meant for water bottles or a sippy cup.
There is another front pocket directly above the smaller front pocket. It has an extra wide, dual zip opening and contains two mesh cubes.
The first insulated mesh cube can keep two 8-oz standard milk bottles while the other mesh cube can keep your kids’ changing clothes.
You can roll and place the clothes side by side, or you can lay them flat on top of each other. Rolling them can make it easier for you to find them since they are placed in a row and just one glimpse, you can straightaway decide what clothes you need to get.
The inside compartment is HUGE. Although there are two elasticized pockets, I believe it can be improved by putting additional compartments so that parents do not need to buy extra diaper organizers so as to keep the things organized. But if you prefer, you can buy separate organizing cubes so that you can totally take control of how to pack your bag.
Once you have the different packing cube for each need (snacks, wipes, emergency kit, etc.), and if they are color coded, you can just grab the particular storage cube right away without messing the stuff inside. You can also line them up in such a way that they will act as the base for other things you need to pack like blankets and burp cloths.
Finding stuff inside this bag should be very easy since the main compartment lining of the bag is in good contrast so you can quickly find items. The pockets lining are also light enough it would not be any struggle to see things in the dark.
And if you need to bring a laptop as big as 15 inches, just wrap it in the free cushioned changing diaper pad that comes with this bag and slip it into the inside pocket on top of the side by side pockets.
There is no baby wipe outside pocket holder so you will probably have to stop for a while, open the bag and get the wipes compared to bags that has outside pockets for quickly accessing wipes.
