I just used a cute messenger bag for my first two, but my mom bought me this Oioi one for my birthday (she got it new at a consignment store, so it wasn't nearly this much).

I have had quite a few diaper bags and none were as big or held up as well as the one we have right now. We have the skip hop bento:
Skip Hop : Bento ultimate diaper bag

We've had it well over a year and it still looks brand new. We went through 3-4 in the year prior to that before finding this bag. It would totally work for two kids but I am a notorious over-packer so we're likely going to do a backpack since we also do cloth. Hoping Owen will be potty trained by the time the baby comes!

The best part of a backpack is it does not fall off your shoulder! I don't lug an infant bucket seat around but when I only had Zac and I did use the bucket seat to carry him about when you bend down to pick it up the darned diaper bag falls off your shoulder. I used a sling with Lilli LOTS and I know I'll babywear even more now that I will have 3 it'll be nice to have a backpack and a sling or carrier and I still have my hands free to hold my other kids hands without worrying about a bag falling down your arm etc

My Mom's best friend makes these beautiful, awesome diaper bags for friends who are pregnant. We get to pick our colors, and then she finds really cool fabric and makes them. The one she made us when we had Madeline is still going strong. They're AWESOME. the perfect number and placement of pouches, and not too big and not too small. I'm hoping she makes me another this time around, especially if it's a boy!

I use the six pocket utility tote from thirty one. I have 5 different ones. I hosted a party and wound up buying a bunch. I use them for my school bag...I am a teacher...and I use one right now for a diaper bag. Since I like to switch things up, I have a few different patterns. I swear by them!

Mine is the same one I used for my son, it's more of a designer messenger bag than diaper bag but why not be stylish too? ;-)

I honestly hardly ever used my diaper bag before. I carried a little pack of wipes & a diaper or two in my purse. I left the diaper bag in the car. The other day, DH was rearranging the basement & found the bag, still packed with unused baby gear. My mom just got me this one:
Summer Infant Easton Tote, Black/White:Amazon:Baby

It's made well & so cute. It looks like a floral print, but if you look carefully, it's actually animals--deer, squirrels, rabbits, birds, etc. I'm going to have to change my ways & use this one!

i will tell you this. Don't get ANY J.J. Cole bag. Their customer service is DEPLORABLE and after three "Defective" bags that literally ripped open at the seam, I gave up and got the skip hop.

Ditto on the backpack! I think mine was columbia? But it was so much easier for me and didn't hurt a shoulder nor did I have to hang it on a stroller! Not as cute as some of the bags but much easier I think!

I now own two!!!!! My mother got me the most gorgeous bag I could have ever expected! - this is going to be more luggage than an every day diaper bag
Coach 'Addison' Leather Baby Tote Bag - Black/Silver-F18374 on eBay!

and then my best friend sent me the Duo in Nixon

I gotta second the back pack idea, I love that my diaper bag can be either over the shoulder or back pack style, once my kid was walking around it was definitely easier to chase her with my bag over both shoulders and not sliding off the one shoulder.
