When Is The Best Time To Stop Wearing A Diaper Bag

With all that baby stuff, when is it time to stop using your diaper bag? The short answer: When you stop needing it. It’s probably easier said than done, but don’t let that duffle get in your way of keeping up with your growing kid! Most mums say they stopped using their diaper bags as soon as their child was potty trained. While you still might need an extra bag to lug around toys or a spare outfit (or two), most parents find themselves in and out of their diaper bags so often that they know exactly what they need and don’t need on any given day.

What Makes People Give Up On Wearing A Diaper Bag

Most people who decide to go without a diaper bag will do it for about a few days to see if they are ready. This doesn’t mean that they decide to stop wearing one, but only that they no longer use one every day. When you look at how long people used their diaper bags, you’ll see there is quite a range from using them every day for several years to only wearing them for three months. The reasons behind deciding when it’s time to stop wearing a diaper bag are as varied as anything else in life. Many of these decisions are based on personal preferences and what works best with your lifestyle, so there isn’t one rule that applies to everyone.

What’s The Longest You Could Use a Diaper Bag For?

When to stop wearing a diaper bag can be a tricky question because, like many things in life, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer. Generally speaking, you’ll want to stop carrying around a diaper bag once your little one is mobile and able to play on their own. Sure, you may still need it for playdates or as an additional carry-on when flying, but most moms find they prefer using a backpack over a diaper bag as soon as their child starts walking. However, if you already have a backpack-style diaper then you may surprisingly find that you prefer to stick with it from here on out. Whatever you do though, don’t just store that beauty away forever! If you use it for more than two years (the longest time anyone seems able to make it last), consider yourself a pro.

It’s tough to put an exact number on how long you should use your diaper bag. The bottom line is that if it’s still working for you, go with it! If not, consider giving some other bags a try—they may be just what you need.
