A diaper bag is included in the list of essentials new parents need to prepare for baby’s first three months. Some might argue that ordinary backpacks and bags work just as well, but a diaper bag is considered an essential for a reason: it will hold all your baby essentials (see a complete list here) while making sure that everything you need is organized and accessible.
At our Facebook group Smart Parenting Village (SP Village) one brand of diaper bag has consistently been recommended by members: Sunveno. They particularly love the backpacks, which are water-resistant, spacious, and have easy-access pockets.
“It’s worth the money compared to the sling or shoulder-type bags,” one mom on our SP Village commented. “May easy access just in case may gusto kang kunin pero nasa ilalim siya. [There are a lot] of compartments and organizers, it’s stylish, and it can be carried by your husband!”
The backpack also has a waterproof pocket where you can place dirty clothes and diapers and insulated pockets that will keep baby bottles warm for a couple of hours. There’s even a special pocket where you can put baby wipes for quick pulls!
Sunveno, which is originally from China, is a baby brand that specializes in accessories like carriers and diaper bags. While there are a number of resellers in the country, moms from the SP Village recommend the online shop, LittleShoulders. As it turns out, the owner is a mom of two who uses the bags as well.
“What I like most about it is it’s overall convenience,” says Camille Clavio, owner of LittleShoulders. “Aside from its stylish look, it has a large capacity but is lightweight. I also love that there are a lot of pockets for different needs.”
Camille shares she bought her first backpack six years ago for her first child, and she still uses it until now. “It’s still in good condition,” she says.
The Sunveno backpack has three variants. Working parents on the go may like the premium version (Php2,500), which has a separate pocket for a laptop or tablet. The medium (Php1,800) and large backpacks (starts at Php2,200) come in solid colors and printed designs.
Apart from diaper bags, LittleShoulders also carry various backpacks and satchels for kids. There’s a mini version of the diaper bag so you can go twinning with your children! It also offers bags with cute animal designs that’s perfect for little ones.
