Most diaper bags have a plastic liner in them or made of a polyester fabric blend. What you can do is use Scotch Guard and spray the backpack inside and outside
They have a few different options at Joanne fabrics. The people there are pretty helpful and will show you what they have.
Another suggestion is to include a waterproof bag for wet items. You can buy them or make them. Fabrics.com usually had a good fabric selection.
Hi Jenn. I recommend using Scotchgard Fabric and Upholstery Protector. I have not used this product myself, but it does have 5 stars from customer reviews. You can purchase it at your local home improvement store, fabric shop or even from Amazon. Good luck Jenn.
You can but a scotchgard spray which you can apply to make it more waterproof.
Hi Jenn, if you can't find Scotchgard ior Rusto-leum NeverWet, you can make an waterproof insert using a pretty shower curtain.

Hello. I am not sure I would like or recommend chemicals applied to the inside of the backpack touching baby clothing and accessories.
Babies can have very sensitive skin.
I would find a plastic zip bag perhaps something that would hold a wet bathing suit for use inside the backpack.
Thank you very much. I didn’t think about the sensitivity of the baby’s skin. I agree
