I'll be getting another Eddie Bauer back pack diaper bag. that's what I use for Jackson right now and I love it. We take it to daycare everyday and it holds everything that he could potentially need.

I have a HUGE LL Bean diaper bag for when DD was an infant, but as she got older I bought a tote.

I use a diaperbag. I bring it with me in the cart until baby is older. Then I just leave it in the car. I carry a purse too. But I have 3 kids! Lol my older ones really just carry their sippy cups on their own now tho. When this baby is born, ill have a 5yr old, a 4 yr old, a 15 mo old, and a newborn. I'm on the hunt for a big diaperbag that is super durable. And I'm open to suggestions.

I only carry a purse bc my son is potty trained so I don't need really anything for him, except maybe a juice box. I keep extra pants and undies just in case in my car. When baby comes I will use a diaper bag until she is potty trained. My MIL bought me the Thirty-One diaper bag for this baby. I had the Vera Bradley diaper bag for Aiden.

I had a diaper bag for DS i will most likely use for awhile after this baby is born again, I also have a Vera Bradley backpack I plan on using for smaller trips or when I'm with both kiddos by myself.

I have this one that I used with my daughter. It was a little expensive, but DH got it for me as a gift. It's not the same pattern, but the same bag. It held up well and I LOVED the roll out diaper pad. It was perfect and I would recommend this bag for everyone!
Petunia Pickle Bottom

I asked for this one for Christmas. It is bigger, more suited for 2 or more kids. Mckenzie is potty trained, but still likes to drag a boatload of toys around. I actually like that I use it for an overnight bag once the kids grow out of it.

Both bags are absolutely BEAUTIFUL and I highly recommend them!

I looked at a lot of diaper bags when I was pregnant and bought an (expensive) JuJuBe bag. I didn't like it. I ended up getting a large custom-made bag that worked much much better.

Things that I need:

* Easy access. I thought I wanted a zipper - zippers are very bad when you are carrying a crying baby. I have a magnetic closure now, MUCH better.

* Bigger. I do cloth diapers. I didn't realize just how much more space they'd take up! Add to those the wet bag, change of clothes, wipes, and nursing cover and I ended up needing a pretty large bag until she stopped peeing and pooping every time I turned around.

* Easy access pockets on the outside for my keys and phone. I don't want to be digging through my entire bag for my stuff, and I again don't want to be fighting with zippers.

* Later on bottle pockets come in really handy for sippy cups.

When Kate got older I downsized to a much smaller bag, and if I'm doing just some errands now I'll bring just my purse with a diaper stuffed into it. But for longer trips I still need a couple diapers, a sippy cup, snacks, pacis.

The larger one is the same one I am ordering! I have a custom made one that I carry for DD but her name in embroidered so I needed something bugger for both girls. I LOVE these bags.

I think i am just going to get a Coach tote bag. I wont be bottle feeding, so no need to have a huge diaper bag.

With DS, i rarely used a diaper bag, i just threw things in my purse, so thats my plan this time. My Bday is in late april, so it will be my bday present =) Now i just have to pick one out!!

I have a JuJuBe backpack style diaper bag that I just got not long ago that we'll use for both kids. Once DD started walking it just got so hard using a tote style bag and holding her hand so I decided a backpack style was the way to go. I am concerned it will be big enough to hold things for two kids.

I just use a tote. For newborns it depends on where I'm going. I pack a diaper bag with everything I could possibly need, but it either stays in the car for quick trips, comes inside with me if we are staying at a friend's house a while, or goes in the bottom of the jogging stroller if out for a run. Then I just have my tote/purse for quick trips or whatever, with wipes, a few extra diapers and one change of clothes.

You know, I'm not sure that makes any sense at all. Who knows what I'll do!

I'm looking because I had a nice one with Allison but it won't be big enough for both kiddos (and it's pink).

I went this route . I got the large dooney and bourke giraffe print tote. It has two outside side pockets which wOrked perfect for bottles or sippy cups and it has an easy find key hook.

I got tired of carrying a purse and a diaper bag. Plus this doesn't "look" like a diaper bag. I get slot of compliments

My last bag was a Fleurville...I adored it! I had the 'mothership'. They have a clear kind of vinyl overlay that you can wipe down, which is AMAZING! It had a ton of room for everthing I needed for two kiddos.. I had a pink Coach diaper bag before this one and had to pay 75 bucks just to have it cleaned! The fleurville has a pretty satin lining, very stylish for boys and girls..here's a link to one I found on ebay that is a great price for NWT!!

I'm ordering a custom bag for this little guy, with guitars and music notes..dad is a musician so he will love it, teehee...it will also have his name embroidered on it..
