So, how do you ladies handle having a baby in a carrier and using a diaper bag? I picked out my dream diaper bag, but it is messenger style.

I would say put the carrier on first and baby in the carrier and then put the bag on. I had an over the shoulder bag and it was a little bit of a pain to deal with. I decided with 3 kids I didn't care if my diaper bag was cute anymore and got an awesome back pack diaper bag and it is so much easier to use with the ergo. I would think if you were using a wrap or sling it might be a little easier with a messenger bag than an ergo or something like that.

I always just throw it over one should or the other.. Messenger style seems perfect to me.. Mine has a shoulder strap.. If we are going somewhere for the day usually DH and I switch off carrying it.. Or I'd recommend a back pack for the longer days... Grocery shopping or church or parks .. Or whatever.. It just gets set down somewhere so it doesn't matter much...

If you need the full bag, messenger is fine. Just throw it over one shoulder after you have the baby strapped on.

But personally, I had a large wristlet custom made for me on Etsy. It was big enough to hold my wallet, keys, a diaper or two, travel pack of wipes, thin disposable changing pad (basically a thick paper towel) and trial tube of diaper cream. Unless I was going out for an extended errand or long day, I'd just carry that. It hung on my wrist and was easy to manage with the baby in the carrier. I always kept a spare larger diaper bag in the car, though, with more essentials (change of clothes, etc.) just in case.

Pictures? Or link?

I guess my problem is I always have drinks and snacks packed for my bigger kids .. So those are a bit much for a wrist thing...

I usually just throw the diaper bag on my shoulder, then carry the baby seat hooked in my elbow. I carry extra stuff too because I have older kiddos. It takes a week or so to really get it figured out but it works well for me.

I baby wear and I use a messenger style bag. I put my bag on first, then I put on baby. I use a Ju Ju Be Be hip, or a BFF. Any messenger style would work though. The hip is VERY light though and today (I usually use cloth, but we are using sposies right now for diarehha lol) I had 4 disposables, an extra outfit, hard wipe case, toy, my wallet, a wet bag, an envelope full of cash and box tops, a tommee tippee sippy cup and a container of puffs, all INSIDE of the bag. No outside pockets were used. I slowly added another onsie, and some papers in the bag. I easily could of put more in, but didn't need it.

Sorry I'm late responding to this.

Here's a link to one I had made. This seller has lovely quality goods and she's reasonably priced, too.

Custom listing for Cshives by wooden45 on Etsy

We don't have mass transit here, so 95% of the time if I'm carrying a baby, I've just left my car and am walking through a store or office building or whatnot. So I just keep the big diaper bag in the car, and carry the wristlet with the bare essentials. I could probably even squeeze in two of those small juice boxes and a bag of 100-calorie snacks, if I wanted, especially if I trimmed down my wallet.
