Sling Diaper Bags For Active Parenting

Sep 8, 2008
Lugging around baby stuff all the time can prove to be quite cumbersome and tiring, especially if you are using the wrong type of bag. Most parents use the usual shoulder-style diaper bags to hold their baby's bottle, diapers, towels and wipes et cetera, but with all the things that you are forced to carry every time you go out with a kid, these bags can put quite a strain on your shoulder. If you are also carrying your baby on a sling, then your shoulders can become tired and sore every time you venture out for even a couple of hours.

It is because of this reason that most new parents curtail their activities. After all, how active can they be when both their shoulders are laden with baby and stuff? However, if you are a parent who enjoys active-lifestyle parenting, or is forced to be active due to a hectic daily routine, then a sling diaper bag could end up easing life considerably for you.

A number of pioneering bags and accessory companies have come out with sling diaper bags, which are sling back versions of the erstwhile boring and cumbersome diaper bags. These diaper bags, which can be hung with a single strap across the chest, leaves your whole front and hands free for all kinds of activities.

Sling diaper bags, which have been especially created for parents who travel with kids, have everything that you expect from a conventional diaper bag, but they are definitely easier to carry and more stylish than regular diaper bags. These bags come with a number of pockets for milk, water bottles and formula. Some also feature separate compartments for keeping your box of wipes, towels, your baby's blanket, and even a changing pad. The best part about sling diaper bags is that they also have enough space to stow mommy's stuff as well. So don't be surprised when you find a bag that has separate spaces for your wallet, cell phone, PDA and your house and car keys.

Parents who are into sports and excursions can choose sling diaper bags that have exterior pockets for towels and water bottles. Others who want to carry around their work with them will be happy to know that some sling diaper bags even have spaces for your laptop and connectivity cables. By choosing the right kind of sling bag, you can always carry around whatever you need the most apart from your baby's essentials.

One thing that you should keep in mind when buying sling diaper bags is quality over price. This does not mean that you should buy a bag that is costly, but it definitely means that you should look for value for money. If you are buying online, make sure that you buy from a reputable company and one which has a customer friendly return policy. It would also help if you buy a sling diaper bag that is waterproof on the outside and water resistant inside. This would not only save your precious belongings from getting wet, but also help in cleaning your bag up in a jiffy.

Buy a bag that is machine washable for convenience and one which has ample space for both fresh and used diapers. This would ensure that you actually get every penny's worth back when you put your sling diaper bag to use.
