Must-haves in the best diaper bag for 2 kids:

  • Enough pockets to organize everything you need. You don’t want to dig through your bags to find a diaper while also keeping tabs on two kids. 
  • Stroller straps. Better than make-shift attachments! 
  • Holds its shape when set down: Nothing worse than rummaging through a flacid bag. 
  • Durable material that’s easy to clean. Because no one wants to look like they’ve “given up”. 
  • Comes with a change pad. You shouldn’t have to buy a bunch of extra accessories just to leave the house. 

Nice-to-haves in a diaper bag for two: 

  • Backpack style. (With good straps too.) You’ll literally have no hands left to carry a bag. 
  • Easy to rummage through. We’re talking bags that have a wide opening or where the whole front zips away. This will make it easy to pack and to find stuff. 
  • No velcro! Loud velcro is the devil around sleeping babies. 
  • Lightweight. You’ll be carrying this thing day-in day-out. Take care of your shoulders! 
  • Can fit a laptop. Everyone loves a bag that can fit a laptop! 
  • Insulated pockets. Nice to keep bottles and sippy cups cool. 

What’ll be packing in your diaper bag (for two!)

  • Bottles and snacks
  • Extra clothes
  • Toys
  • Nursing covers, burp cloths, and a blanket
  • Your own stuff
  • And obviously – diapers and wipes 

Price range

The diaper bags on this list range from under $30 to over $300. A few things to consider before deciding how much you’ll spend:

  • Will you use this bag beyond the diaper years? Many of these bags are stylish and durable, and will be perfect for work and travel for years to come. 
  • Are you getting one for mom and dad? If you really want a girly diaper bag, and your hubby wants a manly bag, adjust your budget accordingly. 
  • Do you LOVE it? Hey, some bags are just worth it. And if you’ll use it every day, might as well have something you LOVE.

Diaper Bag for 2 – FAQ

How do you pack a diaper bag for 2 kids?

Packing a diaper bag for 2 kids shouldn’t be too tricky if you get a slightly larger diaper bag like the ones on our list.

Do you need two diaper bags for twins?

You absolutely do not need two diaper bags for twins. You’re better off with a larger diaper bag for two kids. Even though you’ll need to carry double the stuff, when your babies are young it won’t take up that much space. A larger diaper bag like the ones on our list is all you need.

What age do you stop using a diaper bag?

The age that you’ll stop using a diaper bag is completely dependent on your needs. If you have a high quality diaper bag, you’ll probably prefer it even when your kids are older to carry a change of clothes, snacks, and toys.

Do toddlers need a diaper bag?

Toddlers have different needs from newborns, and have a high quality diaper bag that lasted into the toddler years, we recommend you keep using it. When going out, toddlers usually need a snack, a toy, diapers, wipes, and maybe even a change of clothes. It’s definitely better to have a larger diaper bag than rummage through random totes.
