Yes, still use one!

I have a Vera Bradley diaper bag that I got just before LO was born. Needed a bigger one for 2 kids.

Well she is still taking bottles so not much has changed. I have a change of clothes for both girls. Snacks and juice box for my oldest. Diapers, wipes, formula, snacks, toys for LO.

I should get a rolling suitcase when I leave the house.

I still have one. It's a Carter's bag I got used before the girls were born. I keep bottles and cloth diapers in there. And toys. I don't usually pack a change of clothes, though...the cloth diapers are so bulky, there's not really any room.

I have a Go Gaga diaper bag and I love it and still use it. I usually carry diapers and wipes, a change of clothes, snacks, bottles and/or sippy cup and sometimes a toy or two. And my wallet!

If I'm just running out to do errands, I throw what I need for her in my purse, some diapers, wipes, and sometimes a change of clothes, that's it! If we're going out to my parents house, or with friends for several hours I'll grab the diaper bag with toys, blankets, bibs, snacks, that kind of stuff. I have a Ed Hardy shoulder bag that my MIL gave me that I use for her diaper bag.

Do you still use one? If I'm just running errands, I usually just bring a purse with a diaper and some wipes. If I'm gone all day, I bring the diaper bag.
What kind of bag do you have? It's a backpack from Target.
What do you put in there these days? I have a 2 year-old, too, so a lot gets crammed into it. Luckily my 2yo is potty trained so, I don't have to pack her diapers anymore. I keep diapers, wipes, changes of clothes, snacks for both, a toy or 2, my camera, wallet, sippy cups for both kids, nursing cover, a medicine bag with tylenol, motrin, thermometer, saline nose drops, and tylenol for me! I bring more than 1 change of clothes and sweaters for the kids because we live in the mountains and it's usually a 20 degree difference between here and my in-laws. So, if it's cold here, it's really warm down there so I have to bring appropriate clothes for it. It gets bulky!!

We still use our diaper bag. It is just a bag I got from work for nurse appreciation week. It has netted pockets on the sides that I use to keep bottles/sippies in (don't really use bottles anymore, but we used to). We keep diapers, wipes, an extra outfit (just incase we have a major blowout, lol), toys, etc. I really need a new, more durable diaper bag. Maybe, an actual diaper bag. The seams on this one are starting to come apart...

I have a backpack and I still use it. I bought a new one since the old one was breaking up (it was a cheapo). I keep diapers, some spare clothes, wipes, bandaids and painkillers, a mei tai, my wallet, tissues.... Think that about covers it. I always take it because I almost always take the baby with me wherever I go. A lot of the time I end up just carrying it without ever opening it but I'm so used to having it on my back I feel like I'm missing something if I skip it. I rather have it and not need it than the other.

Do you still use one? Yes, it is my purse & diaper bag!

What kind of bag do you have? It's a LV totally GM...it's big and has large pockets on the sides

What do you put in there these days? Everything! I have diapers, wipes, antibacterial wipes, nail clippers, change of clothes, wallet, blanket, toys, sometimes my makeup bag, tweezers, sunglasses, usually a sippy, a spoon....I'm sure there's more. I really need to downsize...it's big and holds ALOT but I want a smaller bag. I love the style etc of my bag so I'll probably just shoot for the MM in the same style which is just a smaller version of mine.

I have a Skip Hop Diaper bag, and I don't really like it. I have a hard time staying organized when I use it.

I take a lot when I go out. Typically, I have the bag packed with her changing kit (diapers, wipes, changing pad), a change of clothes, bib, burp cloths, a couple toys, a snack, my nursing cover, blanket depending on the weather. Then, my stuff - wallet, chap stick, hand cream, pen, my calendar and some other junk! I carry too much!

I want to get a Vera Bradley bag when they go on sale.

Do you still use one? yes, a bag anyway
What kind of bag do you have? It's just a tote but it works.
What do you put in there these days? I usually keep a couple disposable diapers in there just in case of an emergency, but then fill with cloth diapers and cloth wipes. Sometimes toys or other stuff depending on what we are doing.

Do you still use one? Yes. If we're just going out for a few hours, I throw whatever I need into my purse. I have a big Coach purse that a friend of mine made an insert for with waterproof pockets.

What kind of bag do you have? Either my Coach purse or the diaper bag I got when my older son was born.

What do you put in there these days? For the day - 5 diapers, wipes, a couple of bottles, baby food, spoon, water, 2 or 3 bibs, a change of clothes for both kids, and my travel size first aid kit stays in the bag.

Yes, we still use ours. It's a Columbia one and I love it, it's not too big and bulky but works like a charm. Usually I keep the standards in there, diapers, wipes, change pad and a change of clothes. It's always packed and ready to go, if I need to add water, food or whatever that takes all of two seconds.

I used to use a backpack, because I wore Peter is a carrier on my front. Around 9 months I switched to wearing him on my back so I got a new over the shoulder diaper bag...

I keep snacks, a sippy of water, diapers, wipes, a bag for my dirty diapers (I use cloth), a couple books and toys and a change of clothes in there.
