Tell me all about your diaper bag!<br><br>
What brand is it?<br><br>
What size is it?<br><br>
What does it look like?<br><br>
How many dipes, wet bag, clothes, wipes, burp clothes, sippys, toys, ect. will it hold?<br><br>
Is it bulky?<br><br>
Does it clean up well?<br><br>
Do you have more than one? If so, what sizes are each bag?<br><br>
Where all do you normally go w/ your bag?<br><br>
Would you recommend it?<br><br><br><br>
And if you have a SS bag, do you have accessory bags?<br><br>
I am thinking about getting the baby bag, and then a clutch to put in w/ my stuff in it, so that I just have to grab the clutch out to have lipstick, wallet, keys, ect. when I go out w/o baby.

What brand is it? <b>Mine are both from Wal-Mart, and I think they are Baby Connection Brand</b><br><br>
What size is it? <b>The large one is 13x16x9.5 the small one is 10x11x8</b><br><br>
What does it look like? <b>Mine are both navy w/ navy and green plaid. The material is kind of a canvasy type?</b><br><br>
How many dipes, wet bag, clothes, wipes, burp clothes, sippys, toys, ect. will it hold? <b>The small bag will hold 1-2 clean dipes, changing pad, a few toys, sippy cup, my wallet, one outfit, burp cloth, wipes, and a book (it's STUFFED). The larger one will hold more than I ever need :LOL I can fit 8 dipes a few outfits, and toys, blanket, burp clothes, just about anything!</b><br><br>
Is it bulky? <b>The small on is kind of boxy, but not bulky. The big one is just TOO big to haul around, so I only take it when we will be gone all day.</b><br><br>
Does it clean up well? <b>So far we haven't had much get on it, and both still look like new <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"></b><br><br>
Where all do you normally go w/ your bag? <b>I take the small bag most places, grocery store, Wal-Mart, ILs, ect. The big bag I only take if we will be gone more than 5-6 hours. It's too big to haul around <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"></b><br><br>
Would you recommend it? <b>I would recommend the small one, but I don't like the big one :p</b>

I thought you'd never ask! LOL<br><br><b>What brand is it?</b> <a href="http://www.urbanfibers.com" target="_blank">Urban Fibers</a><br><br><b>What size is it?</b> Pretty big but not huge. It's as long as as from the tips of my fingers to my elbow and as high as my wrist to my elbow so you can get an idea. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br><b>What does it look like?</b> It's a large tote, with handles that allow it to be worn but accessed easily on the arm, and it's corduroy with a batik inner and two large outer pockets and 5 inner pockets. Comes with matching change pad too!<br><br><b>How many dipes, wet bag, clothes, wipes, burp clothes, sippys, toys, ect. will it hold?</b> It'll hold 2 sippies, change pad, 4 big AIOs, 1 pr training pants, 2 prs pants, wallet, peri bottle for water, wipes case, cell phone, wetbag, small toys, 2 books and a snack (Okay I keep it packed full)<br><br><b>Is it bulky?</b> not to me, I could put less in it too, but once it's on your arm, even stuffed it fits well.<br><br><b>Does it clean up well?</b> fully machine washable.<br><br><b>Do you have more than one? If so, what sizes are each bag?</b> I just have one, so far <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br><b>Where all do you normally go w/ your bag?</b> I take it everywhere-from the playground to the grocery store to a dinner out with the family-it's the only bag I'll use now.<br><br><b>Would you recommend it?</b> YES! It's a work of art, fully functional, and very very well made with high quality materials. I no longer need anything else, and I used to be a mega bag junkie.

I have the Kelty Daypack<br><a href="http://kelty.com/Kelty/index.cfm?fuseaction=Kids.Home" target="_blank">Click here</a> Click on KIDS, then Accessories<br><br>
It is 8" x 11" x 15", looks like a regular backpack.<br><br>
When packed for a long outing, I have 2 large AIO's, changing pad, bottle of wipe solution, cloth wipes, sippy cup, bib, crackers, book and a toy, change of clothing, jacket if needed, wetbag.<br>
On the outside there is a zippered "Mom" pouch for wallett and cell phone et all...<br>
Also, holds 2 water bottles on the outside.<br>
I can wear it as a backpack, shoulder bag or carry it 'handbag' style. It is not bulky, and I can wear it and carry the baby easily.<br>
Stays clean!<br>
We love it...DH can carry it with out feeling weird cause it's not girly...LOL

I've been using the free diaper bag I got from the hospital. It looks like the bags I was going to buy, so I figured I might as well save myself $40 and use it. It's black micro-fiber, it holds 3 dipes, a cover, an extra outfit, a blanket, my Happy Tushies deluxe accessories kit, my keys, wallet, and a few other random things I throw in at the last minute.<br>
I suppose one of these days I'll splurge and get a fancier bag, but I'm liking this one right now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I use the one from the hospital too, it's tan with shoulder straps and it's huge. I think it holds about 8 or so dipes, but don't usually have that many in it. I have wipes, toys, an outfit, bib,crackers, a spoon and a jar of baby food. It has a little pocket on the outside where I put my wallet and keys. Oh, I also carry a plastic walmart bag for any dirty dipes.

the free formula bags are much nicer - i use mine too, because it only says similac on the inside. it's black too, so it goes with everything. i don't exactly know what it fits - enough for me to be out for quite some time with a 12 week old and a toddler!

I have a Sally Spicer baby bag. I love it. It holds 6 wipes, a ditty bag, 2 covers, 4-6 diapers, rash cream, calendula oil or diaper lotion potion, my keys, a waterbottle, and a couple of toys. I paid full price for it and have no regrets. It is not machine washable, though, if that's important to you.

and it is a Sally Spicer giraffe fur bag! Man is it nice, so big and roomy and soft. I got a matching zipper wallet to match it. My dh rolled his eyes when he seen it so I know it got the eyeroll "you again spent money" stamp!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I have a Sally Spicer baby bag and love it. I can fit 2-3 toys, 4 dipes , 2 covers, an extra outfit and a blankety in it. I also have a small clutch that I use in it and it is so easy to just take out if I don't need the diaper bag.

I have a Petunia Pickle Bottom boxy backpack in the Sunset Dragon Roll print. It measures 12.5" X 13.5".<br>
I LOVE it. It is large enough to hold stuff for my two babes. Depending on how long we're going out for I generally carry wet bag, container of wipes, 2 lg FB for Harrison, extra cover and 4 CPFs for Isabella, burp cloth, change of clothes for Isabella, sippy cup of water and some sort of snack for Harrison, a clear plastic envelope-type pouch containg bib for Harrison in case we eat out, tiny tube of Eucalan, anti-bacterial handwash, and more dry wipes. I also carry a toy or two for Harrison, my wallet, and a few other random items. This bag is HUGE, but doesn't "feel" huge, kwim? It also has a handy clip on the inside for your keys, which is great for someone like me who always loses them in the junk at the bottom of the bag!

I got this diaper bag on sale for 9.99. I like it because it is very roomy for CD and does not look "too cute" like many diaper bags do. I find myself using the hospital one a lot too though :LOL<br><br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fexec%2Fobidos%2Ftg%2Fdetail%2F-%2FB0000632R2%2Fqid%3D1063299274%2Fbr%3D1-9%2Fref%3Dbr_lf_ba_9%2F%2F104-3618606-2236730%3Fv%3Dglance%26s%3Dbaby%26n%3D542428" target="_blank">Diaper Bag</a>

I'm feeling cheated! My hospital bag was plasicy blue jean look that was really purple, and pretty small. I gave it to my cousin (who had the same one w/ her baby a year ago) b/c hers was ripping in places. I figured she would use it, and I knew I wouldn't <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/pinktongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="raz">

I have the black similac bag from the hospital too. It's really good! I can put 4 pf's, 3 covers, wipes, ditty bag, 2 changes of clothes, nursing pads, 2 small toys, hat and socks in there. I put my wallet and checkbook in the front flap and my cell phone hooks to the inside of the other flap. I put my waterbottle in the insulated bottle pouch on the side and gum, chapstick and whatevers in the mesh pocket on the other side.<br><br>
I went and got a bigger similar bag at Carters awhile ago but switched back to this one. Seems if I get a bigger bag, I fill it more with stuff that I don't need!<br><br>
I just got a tote bag from Carters too (it was a giveaway for $10 with purchase) but haven't tried it yet though it looks cool.<br><br>
I also have the Kelty Kids day backpack that I use for trips (leftover from my last child)<br><br>
I'm kind of a bagoholic. But I have to admit, that similac bag is great!<br><br>
