I usually use a Lands End Little Tripper bag. It only holds maybe 2 diapers and just a few small extras, but it's fine for short jaunts. I don't really have anything I'm thrilled with for longer periods away from home. I desperately want a P. Pickle boxy backpack, but they are are soooo spendy! They are beautiful!!

Cassie is AMAZING to work with and she had a bad and diaper made for me and in the mail within a few days of my order. I am in Canada so it'll probably take a couple of weeks to get to me but I am SO impressed with the customer service (and I have a couple of friends who also have her bags and they have raved about how nicely sewn they are as well!)

Her site is http://www.tydytykes.com

As soon as the sally spicer bag gets here, I'll use that but for now I alternate between one wahm tote and a wahm hawaaian print duffle. I just hate that neither fasten closed

I use a Sally Spicer bag and really like it. I also like the Gap backpack diaper bag and my Urban Fibers bag. What I am really longing for is a Petunia Picklebottom and a Kate Spade diaper bag.

OOOH! Major Diaper Bag Envy! LOL!

I have been drooling over those Petunia Picklebottom backpacks for months now! I'm so glad to hear they are as functional as they are adorable!

Hey question though--how big is the fold out changing pad? Is it really big enough or should I still plan on carrying one with me?

I love my Mom About Town bag. The only drawback is it is always open on top. That makes it easy for me to reach into, but I'd prefer being able to close it. I'm looking forward to my Sally Spicer bag, too.

I have a lands end little one that is nice for just going to the store. I've also made a messenger style bag as well as a lovely tote bag. These are my favorite cause they have more character.

Edited to add I love my urban fibers tote - http://www.urbanfibers.com/store/

my best friend hand decorated a Land's End type bag with my dauhter's name and fairies. It's adorable and big and roomy. For wet diapers and my cloth wipes, etc I purchased several things from happy tushies. http://www.happytushies.com/

They are plenty big - that's my favorite feature! LOL!! We use the bag part like a pillow and DD is 17mos.

I use my laptop computer bag, a Trager Intercontinental Laptop backpack which I got at ebags.com. It is super roomy and works surprisingly well as a diaper bag. The best part is the compartment that holds the computer laptop (which I don't carry when using this as a diaper bag!) is the *perfect* size for a Happy Tushies Wonder Bag with room to spare in the main compartment for a blanket, bottles, extra diapers, etc. I put the changing pad and burp cloth in an outer flap pocket, and I already had the extra insides (wet bag, insulated bottle bag, changing pad) that normally come with a diaper bag. Other advantages are that I will get many years of mileage (literally) out of this bag for carrying my computer after diapering years are over, and it's got great capacity as a carry-on for airplane trips. The drawbacks are that it's expensive and doesn't have outside pockets for bottles.

If I ever shop for a real diaper backpack one of these days, I was wondering whether anyone has tried the Eagle Creek Parent Survival Pack? Babyworks sells it under diapering accessories, so I guess it must be CD friendly. It doesn't show the inside, so I was wondering whether anyone had experience with it and could tell how much fits into the main compartment.

Yes, I have the Eagle Creek Parent Survival Pack! I love it! It fits a lot of stuff (maybe too much). The main compartment has one inner pocket. The front pocket is great, having 4 (I think) mini pockets and one larger one with a zip. Then there's a zipped pocket on one side and two open pockets on the other (for water bottles). There's also a front pocket that holds the changing pad.

In the main compartment of my bag, I have:
- 1 AIO
- 1 prefold + cover
- 1 Gerber diaper used as burp cloth
- 1 wet bag
- 1 outfit and hat
- 1 fleece blanket
- 1 small toy
- 1 sling
- my wallet
- bunch of plastic ziplocs
- a small pouch containing baby stuff (nail clippers, thermometer, aspirator, etc.)
- a small pouch containing my stuff (moisturizer, ibuprofen, makeup)

I think I can fit more stuff in there!

I got mine at Sierra Trading Post (http://www.sierratradingpost.com/) for $45. They're having free shipping right now.

HTH,
Cathy
