spill it

Tell me about the best diaper bag out there,
the one I should invest in,
the one I should love
and cherish
and get to use for this upcoming babe.

I want stories.
I want descriptions.
I want reasons.
I want links.
I want it all.

I'm glad you posted about this because I myself am completely clueless and want to know.

I do know that I've eyed a few different OGIO bags that look like good diaper bag options to me...

I LOVED the one Amy made me. It was sassy and big and fabulous. But it was also one of a kind.

I got nothin'. But have fun shopping!

My old roommate came to visit and had a Ju Ju Be that you could wear over the shoulder or as a backpack if you need two hands. Cute patterns, but a little pricey.

Can't help much here, but a removeable changing pad is a MUST!

I really like my Ogio roadtrip bag. It holds a lot, but can be used as a non-diaper bag too. Currently mine holds some spare skivvies, epi-pen, books and snacks. I got mine new for 35 bucks or so from ebay. I am not into frilly, so this messenger style bag works well for me. I also love having pockets on the side for water or sippy cups. That has always been a must for me--even before I had this bag of all bags.

The Diaper Dude is awesome. I have this one and I love it because it's not huge I keep it in the car.

But I also have this one from Pottery Barn Kids and it is awesome, too.

I got a big bag=diaper bag on sale from Target for 12 dollars. It's silver.

Bek has gotten me my two favorites--one, a Kate Spade bag with inside pockets and removable changing pad and --two, a funky diaper bag that doesn't look like one from Nordstroms. You should ask her for the details. She's the QUEEN OF DIAPER BAGS (do you think she'll appreciate that title?)

I don't use one. I keep diapers & clean clothes in the car. I tuck a pacifier and bottle with a secure lid (Avent bottles are good because of their lids) in my normal purse or, on Sundays, my normal church bag. On occasion I'll pack a few additional items into a small basic tote but always unpack it when I get back home.

I want to contribute, because you know how much I love bags of any sort, but the truth is, I don't use one. Well, not really. I carry a mini kit (one diaper, a couple wipes, and an emergency onesie) and just slide it into my purse. I'm that mom: the one who'd rather buy herself a gorgeous leather purse to tote around than a diaper bag for her urchin children.

All that being said, we have a church bag that's pretty much a glorified diaper bag. It contains books, paper, crayons, a couple toys, emergency changing supplies, a receiving blanket, and a never ending spring of cheerios. Because my husband carries it too, it's also an Ogio messenger bag in black (with my old company's logo.)

I like that it has lots of pockets for handouts and my keys. He likes that it's rugged and manly looking. Hey, I found the bag on sale here, plus free shipping.

I wish I could help! The only thing that I can think of is this purse that is sold at Robert's Craft store with all of these pockets and sections for everything... not helping right?

Nat said...

There is a great Bag-Purse Website called browns on 5th. The have a great selection. I LOVE all my Vera Bradley bags. Washable cotton.

Good Luck!

For awhile Nordsrom had the BEST bag ever.. the one Lisa was talking about. It looked like a purse but on the inside it was totally decked out for diapers. If I can find it, I'll give it to you..

For the last few years, I just go buy the best big-ish purse I can find and use it as a diaper bag. I get a new one every year. The last few years I have gotten a Kate Spade leather bag (they tend to work well) but that is because I am a bag snob and it is my one splurge...

Let me see if I can get the rest of the info for you.. I am also interested in this subject b/c I am going to be carrying for three kids... now. Sigh.

Right now I am loving my skip hop expo. (sorry- i don't know how to do links)

At first I wanted a stylin' purse-like bag. But I couldn't find any that I LOVED in my price range. I'm an all or nothing gal so I ditched the "hot lookin" idea and went with practical, instead. I've been quite pleased. I'll give you the lowdown if you're interested on the pros and cons ( very few, in my opinion).

Once I'm out of the "I NEED an actual diaper bag" phase I will probably switch back to a cute, large purse with a makeup bag that I use for baby stuff. ;)

Some day I will invent "the most perfect diaper bag EVER" and it will be UNDER $50.

Also.. if I ever finish unpacking... I might POSSIBLY dust off my sewing machine. Yen knows how I feel about sewing (love/hate)
