So, I asked about this awhile back but I'm still looking for a diaper bag.<br><br>
I have figured out to solve the 2 babes thing though. I'm going to get ds one of those little tiny backpacks to put in a diaper or 2 and his cup and cheerios and such....<br><br>
I'm looking on websites and things to see what is out there but I notice a lot of bags come with stuff I don't need... I don't need a bottle bag or formula container or 30 million pockets to put bottles in.....<br><br>
ho hum...I refuse to buy one I don't like too.....

I use a regular old backpack, it's comfy holds lots, and doesn't have all those unneeded compartments.

We have a Lands End diaper backpack that we really like. DD is 15 months and I am due at the end of next month and we will be able to use the same pack - even with cloth diapers.<br><br>

I got my bag from ebay. They have tons of diaper bags. Some used at great prices, but lots of brand new designer bags that women make from their homes. I bought the CUTEST pink diaper bag there....it's worth taking a look.<br><br>

When I was still pregnant with DD, my best friend attempted to find this bag for me : <a href="http://www.epinions.com/bags-Diaper_Bags-All-Gerber_Diaper_Bags_Basics_5_in_1_Diaper_Gift_Bag_Set" target="_blank">5-in-1 diaper bag</a> (I cannot get this link to work right, when you click it a little 'br%20' shows up, so just click it, delete that bit, and enter it again)<br>
It looks fantastic, and I don't mind 'lugging it around', especially since it had a detachable, smaller bag inside it (think lunchpack). We ended up not finding it anywhere, as we're in Canada. I got another bag that is of very similar size, and has the same features and I adore it. The size is worth it, especially if you take outings often. I have enough room for two changes of her clothes, a day's worth of diapers, a travel pack of wipes, a change of clothes for myself, pacifiers, and emergency anythings.

My dd is 2 and still in dipes, so I decided to splurge and get this diaper bag. I don't have it yet, but have heard nothing but praise for it.<br><br><a href="http://www.onestepahead.com/jump.jsp?lGen=detail&itemID=392&itemType=PRODUCT&iProductID=392&change=117" target="_blank">One step ahead backpack</a>

I have a diaper backpack by Eagle Creek. My favorite feature is the padded changing pad that folds and fits into a pocket.

I also use a back pack. I found one with pockets on the outside that have velcro closures that are perfect for sippy cups, the large outer (pencil/calculator) pocket is great for hand sanitizer and plastic sacks for diapers, the small outer pocket is perfect for keys and checkbook. The main part is big enough for changes of clothes for both kids, cloth diapers for a day, washcloths, changing pad, etc. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> The bonus is that I can use it with my sling, it distributes the weight across both shoulders, and I don't have to worry about keeping the strap up on my shoulder. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

We have one of the Amy Coe bags from Target and I do not recommend it. It does not hold very much and does not look as good as I want it to. I wish I had bought an individual changing pad (The First Years makes one called a 3 in 1 changing kit, I think) and just used it with my big backpack.<br><br>
Good luck, let us know what you pick!

I have a Kelty dipaer fanny pack that I got as a shower gift. To be honest, I don't love the bag because it is just one big pocket that everything I want seems to fall to the bottom of. But it does have a changing pad that comes with, it attaches to the Kelty pack carrier, and my DH likes it .. so I let him carry it. I have to admit that yesterday as I was slinging the babe and carrying the bag it occurred to me to put it on my fanny as it was intended, and I actually was surprised at how balanced I was all of a sudden. I felt like J.Lo (I certainly "had back") and may have looked silly .. but .. functionable it was!!

I don't remember where I found my diaper bag after my second was born, but what I was looking for was one that was divided down the center of the main part so that I had one side for the baby stuff, and one side for my toddler stuff. It made it easy when I was potty training and had to bring clothing for both of them, plus diapers, underwear, etc.

I didn't think about this. I'm using a sling this time...didn't with my son since I had never heard of them.....<br><br>
I used a backpack for awhile but didn't like the one I had...I should go backpack searching! Right now I'm carrying a purse I carried before ds was born and everything fits great!<br><br>
I also seem to loose what I need if it is in one of those jsut giant pocket bags.....<br><br>
Thanks ladies!!! I'll let you know if I find something good!!

I have loads of diaper bags.. I am a collector (or addict LOL) My favorites are the Vera Bradley Villager (its not a diaper bag but works well) and the Sally spicer baby bag. I also have the Lands end DIA which I like but its too big for just one baby's everyday needs.

Just to add my 2 cents, I have a Nine West diaper backpack that I got at an outlet a year or so ago. It is wonderful...it's black nylon so it doesn't look all "cutesy" as I'm not into that, and it's not huge, but it's big enough to put several diapers, wipes, extra onesie, sling, etc. Plus it has a zipper pocket in the front for my stuff and two bottle pockets on the side (where my keys and phone go, lol!) I don't know if it's readily available but it's great! oh yeah, it also has skinny straps so it goes over a sling easily.

I love my combi messanger bag. It has an insulated pocket that I guess is for bottles but is handy for juice boxes etc., cell phone case that is reachable and plenty of pockets of varying sizes, split down the middle and black. The over the shoulder thing worked when I used the sling and now when I am carrying it and my daughter.<br><br>
