Do you carry a diaper bag? If so, what do you put in it? If not, how do you transport your things - in a large purse?

I carry a diaper bag and am in need of a new one since the lining ripped. Here's what I currently try to have on hand:

3 diapers, in size 3 and 4
diaper trash bags
baby powder, small
hand sanitizer
change of clothes for each girl (comfy ones like sweat pants!)
Sippy cups
cloth diaper
small toy

I have a JJ Cole diaper bag, it's not too huge. I only carry it when we go visit the in-laws an hour away, otherwise I kinda throw a diaper and a travel pack of wipes in my purse.

I bring 3-4 diapers, travel pack of wipes, 3 wash clothes, 2 bibs, 1-2 changes of clothes, sippy cup, some baby food jars just in case, crackers, and sometimes a couple small toys.

I've been using the coach purse hubby bought me as a diaper bag. I need to clean that thing OUT. Tons of crumbs and gum wrappers on the bottom

-I carry 2 cloth pampers because she's a heavy wetter.
-balled up grocery bags for dirty cloth pampers.
-a few spoons because I never remember if there is one already in there.
-few jars of baby food, plus a few snacks or puffs.
-ALWAYS need a change of clothes but never have them so that's something I forget!
-phone... plus anything of my own I keep in there.
-bows and headbands
-those johnson face wipies that smell good
-clorox wipes for carts and high chairs at the restaraunt.

yup that's all I can think of. It's a baby junk drawer mixed with mommy's purse!

I don't carry any of this stuff. LOL! I have my emergency kit in my car that I refresh every weekend. It has everything in it... diapers, wipes, 2 bathing suits (board shorts, one for each kid), towel, change of clothes (one for each kid), extra flip-flops, sunscreen, some packs of crackers & granola bars, extra plug, & a sweatshirt for each kid in case it gets chilly at night & we're still out. I will throw one diaper in my purse if I'm running in anywhere with them but aside from that everything stays in the truck at all times in a cute little kit It's super easy to just run out to the truck and do what I need. (Also, the perfect place to change him.. I just pop open the back & everything is right there ready to go. Love having an SUV! LOL)

We still use a diaper bag and it does need replacing but I dont think I will buy another diaper bag. Maybe a large purse, we don't carry too much anymore...I always have
- a cloth diaper for every 2 hours we plan to be out plus one more
- wipes
- a wet bag (holds the wet and dirty diapers)
- a change of clothes
- a snack
- a cup
- one or 2 toys depending on where we're heading
- my wallet and phone

Thanks Julia for the great siggy! <3
