Which of these bags do you think would work best?

I like that this a messenger bag, it's wipeable, it will hang on stroller.
Does it seem big enough?
I don't want to have to pile stuff on top of everything that ends up in bottom.






I like that this one has a bottom compartment and I can put stuff like a blanket and change of clothes, so it doesn't take up so much space inside the bag. But it doesn't show the inside.



Which of these would you like best and why?

The second one is way cuter. Tough to judge functionality without seeing the inside or knowing the measurements for both.

Honestly, I'd be uncomfortable with both. It's hard to juggle a diaper bag, keys, and a baby carrier. Or later, a screaming micro-toddler. Much easier to get a backpack style so both your hands can be free.

2nd one for the look and I agree the bottom compartment for outfit change/blanket is nice.

I did and it didn't. It will for when I don't carry so much.
I also got the skip hop grand central and I think it is too big. So many compartments, I can't ever find what I'm looking for.

If the top one is Kate Spade, that is the one I have (just different pattern). I love mine! It seems to be the perfect size. Not too big, not too small. It holds everything that I need to carry for newborn and my toddler. I love all of the outside pockets, they are perfect for bottles, sippy cups, and my water bottle. I like the second bag, it looks nice. I just prefer having a long strap instead of carrying everything up under my arm.

I like the look of the second one. I like the bottom compartment as well. Good idea for extra clothes. I agree with MerinSun though. I have a petunia pickle bottom that is backpack or over the shoulder. I've used it both ways and I prefer the backpack way more! They can get heavy. I wouldn't want to put mine on my stroller. Diaper bag prolly weighs more than my son! Haha.
