Okkatots Travel Diaper Bag Review – By a Mom

Being a mom is so much fun, however nothing prepared me for the amount of ‘stuff’ that accompanies your child, especially when you travel. Since my family live in CA, we have a 6 hour plane trek to visit. We recently hosted a party for my son’s one-year birthday. Happy Birthday little man! 🙂 As I started packing, I realized my 1 year old could easily have a carry-on of his own.

The only problem was that you don’t pay for a seat, therefore, no carry-on bag is allowed. My bag needed to become his bag. YIKES! I love all the trendy diaper bags that look like purses, but honestly, they didn’t serve the functional needs I had for plane travel.

My travel diaper backpack needs: Easy Access. Lots of pockets. Lots of compartments. Large enough for diapers, clothes, snacks, meals, bottles, toys – basically a mini suitcase. Easy to carry. Hands free.

I was looking for either : a travel baby depot backpack bag, diaper bag backpack, or diaper travel backpack…basically, a travel bag for babies! I searched and searched and nothing seemed to fit my needs for long trips!

Like a shout from the heavens, Okkatots Travel Diaper Bag / Backpack came up on my search! (they have 4 different colors)

My Okkatots Travel Diaper Bag Backpack Review

  • Compartments galore! There is an elastic mesh pocket of every shape and size for anything you want to throw in and make sure it doesn’t fall out.
  • MY FAVORITE: The diaper organizer! Any mom knows that diapers get misshapen and expand in diaper bags, taking up more room. This backpack has a designated organizer that stacks the diapers fitting up to 12 of my Size 4 Huggies diapers. I think it’s up to 16 with smaller sizes!
  • Comes with a wipes organizer, which I thought I wouldn’t use, but it’s ever so helpful. There is a designated spot for this right in the front so it’s easily accessible. It also comes with a  nice a plush changing pad (that has a designated area!
  • Front compartments: easily held my wallet and all boarding passes + important docs that I needed handy.
  • Straps are nicely padded and have a area that I could place my iPhone in (with case on!) so it’s on the front of me while carrying the pack. I even carried my son in his ERGO carrier on the front and the backpack on my back thru the airport.
  • Side mesh – held raisins and other snacks, toys, pacis, you name it!
  • Zippers – this bag unzips ALL the way, so you can lay it out when packing and open it from any side. No searching for the right side to open it on.
  • Hang it up! The two straps can be used to carry this by hand or hang from a clothes pole in a closet for easy access once you’ve reached your destination. I didn’t use this feature, but left it open for easy access during our trip.
  • Insulated pouch – this pouch held my little guy’s 2 – 4 oz juices, hand sanitizer, and 5 – 3.5 oz baby foods and kept it cool from the fridge. No ice pack needed! So nice walking through security and not having to toss an ice pack!
  • DVD or iPad holder – on the front there is a place for your electronics that keeps them safe and secure as well as can hold up a portable DVD player for viewing if you choose. For us, it also held his baby headphones for watching Toy Story 3 on the plane. Lifesaver!
  • Soiled diaper/clothing zippered bag – this thing was great when my little one had a messy diaper but I didn’t have anywhere to throw it on the plane. It contains the odors and keeps it away from everything else in your pack. It’s waterproof too! I took advantage of this bag many times 🙂
  • Hangs on your stroller! **Just make sure you are holding it as with other bags…you don’t want your stroller tipping over!


Things to note:

  • Weight – this backpack can get a little heavy depending on what you pack in it. For me, I’m 5’6 and had a 20lb baby on the front of me and this backpack and was fine. It got a little heavy after a while, but nothing crazy.
  • Lack of waist strap – this coincides with the above comment. Just like a good baby carrier, I think a waist strap would take some of the weight off the shoulders and distribute it more evenly.
  • On Planes: If fully stuffed, this bag does not fit under a plane seat, BUT it fits easily overhead. If you don’t pack heavily, then it fits just fine!

 



The Okkatots Travel Diaper Backpack is a great companion on travel trips either by plane or car. Honestly, I want to take it everywhere with me as my new diaper bag when we’re out and about. I would recommend this product to all moms who have multiple children as well. It organizes everything neatly for easy access. When I need to grab something with one hand, it’s there; In the spot I would place it.
Again, the Okkatots Travel Diaper Bag Backpack is larger than a normal travel bag for babies. There is a smaller travel backpack probably for everyday, but this suits my everyday. Just the diaper organization and insulted cooler (you don’t have to bring a separate lunchbox!) sold me. I got mine in Red, but they also have a variety of colors as well for a more neutral color if you desire.
