One of the first items I registered for when building out our registry was our Beis Diaper Bag. Or more specifically, our Beis Ultimate Diaper Backpack.
If ya’ll have been around this blog or my YouTube channel for even a hot second – you know I’m quite the bag lady. My reviews of both luxury bags and everyday brands alike have driven tons of traffic and views (you might have even found me because of my Cuyana work tote reviews). Bags just help me live my life. I love feeling prepped and organized, my handbags help me do that, and we’re definitely viewing our diaper bag the exact same way.
Let’s dive into why I chose the Beis Ultimate Diaper Backpack out of all the diaper bags on the market – and what I’ve packed inside to bring Baby B home from the hospital!
Here’s my Beis diaper bag review.

Everything you need to know about the Beis Ultimate Diaper Backpack
We chose a bag with a functional & neutral design
Maybe I’m starting this off with a bit of a hot take: but I’m so sick of seeing diaper bags marketed so heavily towards women. I understand being a mom is a wildly different experience than being a dad, but I really wanted our diaper bag to feel like a family option – not something my husband wouldn’t want to pick up. I’m not a fan of diaper bags that look overly feminine or have “mom” labeling or marketing on them.
I can’t even tell you the number of packing cubes I saw all over Amazon with “mom things” printed all over them. Like…don’t dads need things, too? I didn’t want our bag to feel like a mommy bag, but a family bag.
But I digress.
We opted for a backpack diaper bag so that we remain hands-free while dealing with baby. The sleek, black backpack design is also gender neutral, meaning my husband can feel just as comfortable reaching for our diaper bag as I do.
This diaper backpack is a jack of all trades
As far as the Beis Ultimate Diaper Backpack itself goes: it’s really wild just how much stuff is crammed into this one bag.
You’ll find the backpack has a really large opening, meaning you can easily see what’s inside. There’s a removable fanny pack attached to the front that serves as a front pocket, plus a zipper pocket on the front flap. The front flap is magnetic, and underneathi it you’ll find a little cutout for wipes! I chose to stick sanitizing wipes in that slot, because you’ll see on the back of the bag there’s yet another wipes area for diaper changing wipes.
In the interior of the bag you’ll find several large slip pockets. Some of these are even insulated for bottles, which I think is super handy. I went ahead and purchased a mesh pouch trio from Amazon to keep clean clothing, dirty clothing, and other essentials organized – but quite honestly I didn’t need to buy these. This backpack actually comes with a wet dry bag so you can toss clothing inside if need be. Or let’s say you use cloth diapers, you could put an old dirty diaper in that bag – no need to buy anything extra. The backpack also came with a litlte pouch to hold pacifiers and removable stroller straps!
The back of the backpack is your changing station. Unlike some other diaper bags that come with removable changing pads, this bag has the changing pad build in. Unzipping the back of the bag, you’ll find a fold out changing pad, more pockets, as well as another baby wipes pocket (this is where I put the diaper specific wipes). I also put diaper cream, a diaper cream spatula, and hand sanitizer in this area of the bag.
I do wish the backpack had the Beis signature trolley sleeve (like they have on their weekender bag), which would make this backpack that much more perfect for travel – but this Beis diaper bag backpack is pretty close to perfect as is. I’d give this bad boy an overall five star rating when it comes to functionality. It’s truly a jack of all trades kind of bag.
Pros & cons of the Beis Diaper Backpack
- The gender-neutral design: Like I said, I personally love how neutral this bag is, so dads feel comfortable carrying it.
- All the various pockets and build-in components: I love that this is a changing bag backpack with loads of convenient pockets and things that are built in.
- The “extra” items included: This baby bag comes with a wet dry pouch, a pouch for pacifiers, and a teething ring toy (in addition to the built-in changing pad).
- Functional fabric: The fabric of this bag is easily wipeable, cleanable, and washable – all must haves with a baby.
- Ability to order from Revolve: Although this babg bag backpack is listed under a different name on the Beis site vs on Revolve, I’ve taken a look and it is, in fact, the same bag. What’s nice about ordering from Revolve is not only do you pay lower shipping costs (free!) but there’s also free 2-day returns.
- Price: This diaper bag is obviously a premium priced style. There are plenty of other backpacks on Amazon, at Target, or at other retailers for much lower prices – and all of those truly will work just fine. I personally find the cost of the Beis backpack to be “worth it,” but that doesn’t mean it’s not on the pricey side.
- Potentially the size: While I do think this bag is meant to be the jack of all trades, the big, giant bag you bring everywhere…it is quite large. We intend to use the Beis backpack as our primary diaper bag for full days out of the house and travel. If we’re just doing a very quick trip to Target or something, where we don’t anticipate needing a ton, we’ll actually reach for a mini bag that is a little more conveniently sized. But for our regular outtings, this will definitely be our main pick.
What we’re packing to bring baby home from the hospital
- Onesies in a variety of sizes: We obviously have no idea how big this baby will be. I can tell you, as of today, my belly is measuring a week or two behind. I don’t want to over shop for small clothing, but I do plan to pack one preemie size onesie, a newborn size, and a 0-3 month size just to have my bases covered.
- A hat: We recieved an adorable Barefoot Dreams beanie to bring baby home in as one of the gifts from our registry.
- Socks: For Baby B’s sweet little feet!
- Mittens: I’m not sure we’ll use these, but just in case his nails are sharp we’ll pack some anti-scratch mittens for the lil’ guy.
- The hospital should have a breast pump on hand, so I don’t plan to pack mine.
- Bottles: I am packing a couple different bottle options in case my supply isn’t strong enough to start. I don’t want to default assume breastfeeding will be easy or workout, so we want all the options available to us!
- Our formula of choice, just in case.
- Plenty of diapers (ah, the dreaded diaper change for the first time…best to be prepared)
- Diaper cream
- A blanket for cuddles and to keep baby warm when in the carseat on the way home.
