This 3-in-1 bag comes complete with a foldout diaper changing station, meaning no more awkward kneeling on the bathroom floor or balancing the kiddo (and a dirty dipes) on their knees. The foldout station boasts a privacy guard and multiple pockets to hold all the essentials (which is more than we can say for those standard-issue bathroom stations). “Damn that’s cool,” said one reviewer. “Its a backpack, it’s a bed. Its the ultimate baby machine!”

Pack.” says a dad on Amazon. “Seriously, as a father and carrier of diapers, bottles, toys, burp cloths, changing pads, pacifiers, socks–I so wish I had known about this backpack before even the first kid. Now with a third child on the way, I can say: if you are tired of the HUGE bags you have to lug over your shoulder…This is the bag for you.” The zippers have helpful loops so you can zip/unzip one-handed, meaning you don’t have to put the kid down to close up the pack (brilliant).
