Hi - what do you ladies recommend for a diaper bag and do you think you requirement is different if you do cloth diapers vs. disposables? I'm wondering if a backpack style might be easier to carry around, especially since I hope to wear my baby a lot. I'm also planning to use cloth diapers and didn't know if they take more room than disposables?
So, I don't like the backpack style diaper bags when I baby wear personally. Too many straps. I am OK with the messenger style bag, but honestly, any bag you have to haul around while baby wearing seems to be a pain. I think the carriers that have built in pouches are a bit more convenient in that way. I keep my diaper bag in the car or on a shopping cart if I'm out typically.
Yes, cloth diapers do take up more space. How big of a bag you need depends on how long you tend to be out of the house. Cloth shopping bags can serve as extra storage in the car just as well. I really like the bags designed by http://www.etsy.com/shop/juanitashandmade she's out of town, but will be back home soon.
