What dipes do you keep in the diaper bag?

I always leave mine packed and ready to go, short of sippy cups, since if we ever had a fire and had to get out quick I'd probably perish standing in front of the shelves wondering which dipes would match their jammies
: but I can't decide which ones to put in. Cute AIOs so people seeing us change them will be interested in cloth dipes. A wool shell and a couple inserts? No, I want to use those more often then that. Some old prefolds, pins and cheapy covers since I rarely end up changing on the go anyways?

So which diapers are in your bag?

All in ones. Two of them and when they get used I replace them with two more.

I just use ubpf so I keep:
an extra snappi
big ziplock bag
1-2 pf
xtra cover

If I'm going somewhere that I want to show off a cd, I put the CB in. LOL They are the only "fancy" cds I own.

If we're going to be out for a long time and I don't want to mess w/ changing cd's...I put her in a 'sposie and put xtras of those in instead.
I keep

2-3 cpfs
an extra cover
extra pins/snappi
cloth wipes in a huggies travel case.
Several Happy Heiny's (depending on length of trip out - but there is always at least one in there)
1 wet bag from Little Lily
1 little cloth bag that some WAHM sent me as a freebie - I fill this with all my random WAHM cloth wipes (like 8 or 10?) I keep all my same sized Darling Diaper wipes at home!
1 spray bottle filled with wipe spray Punkin Butt Recipe
Oh, and a little ziplock in case there is nowhere to flush poop

Not to mention everything else but the kitchen sink!

Since I just got a new diaper bag and like it I've decided to actually use it. Before I would just grab a dipe and extra cover and leave it in the car with some wipes and a bag. We're not usually out for too long and slinging doesn't lend itself to carrying a big diaper bag. But I decided to keep a fully equipped diaper bag in the car so I'm not always schlepping 10 things under my arm plus ds. Among all the extras (wipes, creams, bags etc) I keep one ubcpf and extra snappi, one fitted (kissaluv or snuggleup) an extra cover and one 7th gen just in case. I always hope another mom will see me changing ds in cloth so I can extoll the virtues of cding but so far nada.

Except today I was brave and took Ds out in a wool cover so I packed an extra Firefly instead of an AIO.

I usually just carry FBs in my diaper bag. Carrying diapers and supplies for 2 can turn into a LOT of stuff if I let it, so I like to just keep it simple - plus, I don't miss having those few FB not in rotation with all their cute dipes and covers!
I either carry AIOs (preferably Bumkins b/c they take up less space) or pocket dipes already stuffed!
If I will be doing the changing, then usually a couple of cpfs and an extra cover. But, if dh, grandma, or the church nursery workers will be doing the changing, then some of my cute Little Lambs AIOs.
3 prefolds
a snappi
a cuddlewrap PUL cover
FMBG AIO ( just in case I go somewhere to show off!!!)
I used to keep prefolds but with my sally spicer bucket bag, they take up too much space, so now I do two or three fitteds and a motherease cover or my bumpy cover.
I only use a diaper bag for church so I just keep Honeyboy AIOs in there. I bring the ones he uses right back out to the bag once they are done washing.
I usually just have 2-3 pf's and one or two covers in there (prorap and bumkins). Boring, yet extremly functional

2 ubcpfs and 1 snappi live in the diaper bag. When I go out I also add to it (depending on what's clean that day) a Tootsweet fitted, FMBG fitted or AIO and a SP wool cover or FMBG PUL cover if I need trimness. I like to pack the diaper bag.
Depending on how long we are going to be gone i will bring:

2-3 Fireflies (always matching the outfit and current wool cover - gotta make converts
a spare wool cover, yes, matching, too. usually a LTK
1 nighttime dipe - usually a Nighty Newt or hemp SOS with doubler.
and I always forget a wet bag.

I don't keep anything in the bag, I always pack according to where we are going. Usually I take Bumkins AIO's b/c they are quick and easy to put on, plus they are cute.
I also am fond of taking WIO's too... like my Fuz or RB. Those are easy to pack and put on as well. Now if I'm going to someone's house, I will usually bring cute fitteds and wool covers. If I'm going to Erin's or Christi's I will bring all my new fluff. :LOL

I always bring a few wipes, little squirty bottle, wet bag and changing pad... my Happy Tushies kit.

It depends on where we are going and how many diapers we need.
If we need alot of dipes I take bumkins AIO, they are sooo trim and take up less space. Otherwise I'll take honeyboys or cuddlebuns with a cover.
I keep FB in my bag. DD is so squirmy during changes that I want the quickest thing I have while out and about. I also keep a stack of dry wash clothes and my Kissaluvs Diaper Potion Lotion spray. ( I
that stuff)

I keep my diaper bag in the vehicle, and it doesn't get used very often.
I have 2 SOS and one ProRap in there, along with other dipe supplies.
