What could be more appropriate in a household of all dudes (well, except for me of course) than a Diaper Dude diaper bag?! Over the years with what is now three babies, I’ve tried out my fair share of diaper bags. I really didn’t like the ones I had in the past and was looking for something perfectly functional this 3rd go ’round. With the boys all being 5 and under, I still often need to carry things for the older boys– diapers for Little Brother, snacks & drinks, etc. So, I need something that can carry a lot, but I don’t want a giant bag. I’m not overly girly (maybe it’s good I had 3 boys?! 😉 ) or flashy, so I tend to gravitate toward basic & simple styles. Plus, with a diaper bag, it’s helpful if it’s something that Dad is willing to carry too. So, with all of those characteristics in mind, I think I finally found the perfect bag!!!
The Messenger II-Pinstripe from Diaper Dude
Seriously, this bag is SO functional! And, I LOVE that it doesn’t really look like a diaper bag! There’s nothing babyish about it, except for that is holds baby stuff really well (and it has a diaper bag checklist on the inside flap to help the dads out)! 🙂 I really love all the various storage compartments this bag has and the way it’s all laid out. Here are some of the specs:
- One large compartment for baby with mesh pocket and additional compartment for dad with mesh pocket.
- Padded shoulder strap.
- Insulated bottle holder.
- 3 large compartments with Velcro® closure.
- Dad checklist screened on flap.
- Breathable mesh padding for extra comfort.
- Padded changing pad.
- Clips for stroller strap.
- Interior key clip.
- Removable cell phone holder
- Bag measures approximately 17 inches wide and 14 inches tall.
I happen to love that it has the three little pouches on the front. For me, that’s one pouch for each kiddo! Perfect for each one’s cups! 🙂 You can see that it also has a lot of various zipper & mesh pouches within each main compartment. It helps keep things organized as opposed to just the giant abyss of stuff. And, do you see what else I love about it?! I can fit my macbook inside the back compartment! That will be SO nice for traveling! 🙂
Here’s a peak at the inside of the main compartment for one of our recent outings:
Contents include a burp cloth, three diapers, a paci, bottle of water, two bottles, a “just in case” pair of undies for Big Brother, and my wallet. There is actually lots of room to spare and that’s just inside the front/main compartment. That doesn’t include the 3 pouches on the front, the two on the back, the back zippered compartment or the zipper compartment on the front flap. So, definitely a lot of space! Yet, the bag isn’t overwhelming huge. I can carry it easily over one shoulder like a purse or across body, messenger bag style! It’s definitely been a great diaper bag solution for us and perfect for this dude mom household! 🙂

OMG! I need a bag like this! Now that baby #2 is a boy I was looking for a more masculine bag. One that my hubs won’t feel bad about carrying. I love all the extra pockets in front.
I love the stroller strap! My husband would love this!
I love that it has a clip for keys. I cannot count the times I have to dig around for them!
Love the size of the diaper bag!
What is not to love!? The key holder would be great for my hubby, he is always loosing them!
I love the Dad checklist screened on flap
My husband and I have been in discussions about diaper bags, and this was one we finally decided on that would work for both of us. It’d be great to win one!
I like the messenger style of this bag, thanks for a fun giveaway
I love all the compartments. And I’m loving the Yellow Submarine line, huge Beatles fan here.
We have a Diaper Dude and we LOVE all of the compartments and that it’s a bag that my husband is willing to tote around as well!
I like that it doesn’t look like a diaper bag! This might be the first ‘cool’ looking diaper bags I have ever seen!
I love everything about this bag. I’m not a girly girl and it’s perfect. I have a 3 year old and a 7 week old so I love all the pockets.The adjustable straps are great too since i’m 5’5″ and my husband is 6’3″.
Yes, Mary! We have an even bigger height difference here! I’m only 5’3″ and he’s 6’4″!!! 🙂
The diaper dude bag looks cool for many reasons! I think the stroller strap would come in handy. And I think my husband wouldn’t mind carrying this bag too!
I love his size and all compartments, ideal for carrying my baby needed!
I love the size of it and that my husband would actually use it!
Definitely the key clip and stroller handle. My hubby would love that.
Love the messenger style of this bag. Great giveaway!
AWESOME!! My friend’s husband got one of these with their first baby and I was always a little jealous;)
I love that it’s manly enough that the Mr. will actually carry it for me!
I love that it doesn’t scream “diaper bag”! I also love the Three exterior zip-closed pockets – my current bag only has one. I would love more because Iike keeping things organized/separated!
I like that it doesn’t really look like a diaper bag.
oh my goodness this is an amazing bag! my husband would actually use this!
Love the exterior pockets, and the padded changing pad!
I like all the compartments and how roomy it is.
