I find myself wanting to be hands free when going out with my dd. If we're just running errands, in andout of shops, i just leave her in her car seat instead of wearing her. I have started to hate my purse because it always falls off my shoulder. What does everyone use for carring their stuff? I have been on the lookout for a small backpack type of bag but i haven't found one i like yet.
tia, chris

I have a diaper bag that looks like a navy backpack (or I just use a regular backpack!) it came with a matching changing pad and is not too big or too small. I throw my wallet and keys etc. in there. It has space for sippy cups on the side. Some baby carriers do have pockets but I have three kiddos so need something a bit bigger than a pocket.

I use a "fanny" pack. (I put fanny in quotations as brits consider the fanny as the vagina as i'm told
) I don't fasten it around my waist b/c that would require valuable seconds. Instead, I just keep it in the loosest position so that it's like having a really long strap and I just hang it across my shoulder. It has 2 zippers, i.e. 1 opens up to a slightly bigger compartment than the other. So the bigger holds my wallet and cell and the other holds my keys and coupons.

I don't carry anything else in there. Everything is within a zippers reach. And as soon as I put it on I know if i'm missing my wallet/cell/keys by it's weight and "bulkiness". Anything else goes in the diaper bag.

I just got one of the mini mom about town bags and looooooooove it! It is the perfect size for a diaper or two, wipes, a water bottle, snack cup, wallet, keys, phone, checkbook, glasses... has an outside pocket and four inner ones. The strap is adjustable. When I carry Elaina on my hip or put her in the shopping cart I wear it across my body; when she's in the mei tai I put it on my shoulder.
