    Question for women - did you continue to use backpacks during pregnancy?

    Hope it’s alright for me to ask - but for women who have gone through pregnancy, did you continue to use backpacks during your pregnancy?

    did your carrying change at a particular time?

    Did you switch to different bags at all?

    there’s a lot of conflicting and confusing info out there and I just want to know - were you comfy with your backpack? Obviously I don’t mean heavy duty guides pack stuff - but generally what did you use?

    i did. i used a s25 to schlep stuff around. it was my edc for years and i found it comfy. but i think ymmv. its such a short time anyway. and most of the time (at least for me) i wasnt that big. id say just use your regular stuff and if youre miserable, shop then! (i remember having a hard time sleeping, especially towards the ends of my pregnancies)

      Thank you so much. Makes so much sense. There are just so many rules about what people can and cannot do, but I would think wearing a backpack within reason shouldn't be any different from a purse which many carry.

      thanks again!

        I did too! I used all kinds of bags but I found that backpacks distributed the weight across my shoulders that was much more pleasant during pregnancy than hauling a shoulder bag around.

        My bag needs also changed a lot when my first born was a baby. I wore a baby carrier and I preferred a long-handled tote for that period of time because shoulder bags and backpacks got in the way of the carrier straps. Then I moved to the Parental Unit and delighted in clipping it to the stroller. Now I just switch bags depending on the activity, not so much the age of my kids. If you need a parenting-based bag enabler I am your person!!

          I've always carried a backpack for work, and I didn't make any changes to that when I was pregnant. It's actually easier to balance your load on a backpack, especially when you have to walk a few blocks from the bus to the office

            thanks everyone. that was very insightful. unfortunately no longer an issue now.

            maybe for the future will be good information and i hope it's useful for some other women if they're curious.
