As some of you know, we went to Disney World a few weeks ago. With us, came 2 diaper bags- one of them was this week’s diaper bag of the week- the Boken Every Day Bag. This is such a great little (but also huge) bag, and I proudly tote my Boken while out and about in Hoboken and Manhattan as its versatility makes life so much easier.
This week’s packing list is set up for twins:
- 12 diaper changes
- 2 wet bags
- 2 outfit changes
- 2 sippy cups
- 2 glass food jars
- 2 bibs
- 2 board books
- 4 toys
- changing pad
- diaper cream
- lip balm
- stain removing pen
- muslin blanket
- shopping bag
- cell phone
- first aid kit
- wipes pouch
This bag is completely soft structured (and waterproof!!) so pictures were a little tricky. Please forgive me! There are also very few pockets on the inside, so stacking is helpful. I created a base with my diaper changes.
In the front side of the interior, there’s a large elasticised mesh pocket. this is great for holding things like clothes, books, wet bags, and whatnot.
There’s a zippered pocket at the top of the bag that the bag can even fold into to store itself. I found this great for little things like a first aid kit, bibs, and other small things that get lost easily.
On the top of my base layer of diapers, I added the muslin blanket, wipes, wallet, and food jars with lots of room up top still, perfect for toys and/or a baby carrier.
The front pockets are great for phones and keys and other little items that need to be immediately available. The side pocket with the elastic top is great for a large water bottle or even stacking sippy cups. There’s an additional pocket on the other size with a Velcro top. great for securing things you don’t want to lose but are too large for the front pockets.
This bag functions as a tote, messenger bag, and backpack. The backpack straps can be undone and tucked away into a pocket on the back, which I also found great for the changing pad and the detachable messenger strap.
This is a great bag for a family with a large packing list and on a budget. At only $68, you really get a lot of space and versatility. It’s extremely lightweight- weighing only 13oz! The waterproof feature is another awesome part of it. It is great for trips to the beach, pool, or around town.

Reader Jessica Treadway says: “I love this bag can’t believe I debated it for so long.. I have only been using it for 1 toddler at least for 4ish more weeks. I was worried by how big the main pocket was because I thought everything would get lost and unorganized but I was way wrong.. I love the fact that the width is the same as a diaper so I stand them up in a row on the bottom along with extra clothes.. Them in the inside zipper pocket I put boogie wipes hand sanitizer bottle and hand wipes for little. The elastic pocket I put my cloth wipes with my wipes spray bottle and a folded wet bag. Once I use the wet bag I hang it were the messenger strap goes even with the strap clipped. In the outside Velcro pocket I put a sippy cup for him and in the other side one a bottle of water for me. I throw my keys wallet and phone in the front pockets and top the inside pocket off with snacks and a few toys.. I still have a whole bunch of space its crazy!!! I send it to daycare which would be my mom. She loves this bag keeps telling me how organized it is and stays even after taking things out”
