#66 – Chris Pegula – Diaper Dude



The Life of Dad After Show - Episode 66 - Chris Pegula - Diaper Dude

Art Eddy and Ryan Hamilton talk about their kids’ costumes for Halloween and bring on Chris Pegula aka Diaper Dude!

Actor-turned-father-turned-designer, Chris Pegula, is the creator of Diaper Dude, dad expert, and now author of “From Dude to Dad: The Diaper Dude Guide to Pregnancy”. With the launch of his company, Chris sought to make a man’s transition into fatherhood easier, but along the way started a movement and lifestyle born from the idea that fatherhood doesn’t have to be complicated or un-cool. After the birth of the first of his three children, Pegula noticed that most diaper bags and accessories sold at retail stores were designed with women’s sense of style in mind.

Instead of carrying his baby-stuff around in a gym bag or backpack, Pegula created Diaper Dude for dads.

The Diaper Dude brand appeals to image-conscious men everywhere looking for ease of use by merging hip styles with functionality. As today’s dads are more involved than ever, dads can easily access the essentials: diapers, bottles, clothes or wipes and toys without taking off the bag! The product’s popularity continues to be enormous and keeps Chris on the move. Since the launch of Diaper Dude, Chris has emerged as a lifestyle expert on all things family, parenting and partner related.

From helping a man understand what his wife is going through while pregnant, maintaining a great marriage, staying connected to your wife and kids while traveling on business, Pegula understands the everyday challenges and expectations of being a terrific husband and father, and uses humor and creativity in juggling the everyday chaos that accompanies his family-man lifestyle.
