One very necessary accessory has gotten a major makeover. The diaper bag has gone tactical — updated for fathers with features such as a padded space to carry a 17-inch laptop computer, charging ports for phones and computers, designated anti-theft pockets, an insulated section for baby bottles and up to 19 assorted pockets for everything else.

Work Smart Enjoy Life LLC — otherwise known as W.S.E.L Bags — offers this handsome line of multi-function diaper bags that don’t look like diaper bags. The company was founded by Kwame White, a Virginia-based father and a retail strategist who recognized that dads had been left out of the design equation when it came to baby care.

He did his research.

“There were tons of online searches, talking to a lot of other new fathers, then realizing that there are thousands of diaper bags for mothers and very few products for fathers,” Mr. White said.

The result was a line of roomy, water-resistant bags that can hold as many as 50 diapers and can be worn as a backpack or attach to a stroller. Mr. White also advocates “fatherly strolls” for dads to keep fit and spend time with their children.

Moms, Mr. White adds, will also benefit from the forward-thinking take on a mainstay of parenting.
