13. Splurge On: A Backpack Diaper Bag
When I registered for my baby showers, I could only find one diaper bag that I could wear as a backpack. It was probably one of the best things I received. Of course, nothing is stopping you from using a good old-fashioned regular backpack, but sometimes these have more "baby-friendly" pockets, such as one for diaper wipes, and most will come with a changing pad. 

Being able to carry a diaper bag on my back as opposed to over my shoulder was better for my back and allowed me to have two hands free instead of having to always shift around the bag on my side. Plus, when using a baby carrier, it was so much easier to balance the diaper bag on my back.
