At Baby Sherpa we are active parents who understand the needs of parents who travel, go on outings and need a great backpack to carry their gear. We believe that your backpack should multitask as well as you do. They should be designed and made to withstand the demands of parenting.

We value input from parents and strive to keep being innovative in meeting parents’ needs for hauling the gear of their little ones. Alpha Sherpa is our newest backpack that is a 5-in-1 backpack. It includes an innovative sleeve to carry your laptop computer, mobiles devices and whatever else you may be packing.


The Sherpa Story

Ever since Sir Edmund Hillary and his Sherpa guide Tenzing Norgay reached the summit of Mount Everest in 1953, the Sherpa people have received international recognition for their courage and fortitude. 

Today more than 100,000 people of Sherpa ancestry live in the Himalayan region with many continuing to work as guides on mountain treks. In fact, the climbing of Everest would not be possible without the help of these dependable guides who have taken part in every expedition to Everest since 1921.

Strength, stamina and the ability to withstand the demands of life!

The same qualities the Sherpa exemplify also inspired the creation of the Baby Sherpa Diaper Backpack. We hope it’s rugged versatility will serve you well through your journey in life.


About the Inventor

In October of 2000, Heather Campbell-Dewar and her husband Gary became parents for the first time to Baby Camryn. After having their baby they could not find a technical diaper backpack for all of the baby gear that they needed to haul around. Heather wondered why every other extreme sport had a technical backpack designed and not the sport of parenting!

Heather retained a world-class diaper bag backpack designer and designed and manufactured a technical diaper backpack. This became what is now known as the Baby Sherpa, a diaper backpack that is multi-functional and ergonomically designed.

Many parents carrying 3 or 4 bags when 1 well designed backpack diaper bag should be able to handle all the gear. Who would have though that such little people need so much baby gear with them!
