My husband just HAS to have a FSU diaper bag,lol. He really is set on it, and he said,...if I didn't want an FSU bag, I could pick whatever I wanted, and we would just have two. I will probably end up getting him one for his b-day and just using it too.

I'm crazy for Coach bags. I own several of them, and when I found out they make diaper bags complete with changing pads and everything, I flipped! I know how unnecessary it is, but I think I'm going to look for a used one on craigslist.

This is the third bag I bought with my son, and worth every penny. I loved this thing. Best choice I had made.


Its a skip hop studio

i'm trying to decide between something that can double as a purse (and still be cute) so I never have to switch back and forth or something like a jujube be prepared so I can be uber organized. I had a purse-like one last time. the jujube I guess is really big though. I don't have any stores near here to check them out, I have to order online and hope it's something I like or spend tons in shipping back and forth until I find one I like. I also want something big to hold my cloth diapers which can take up a lot of space. so I love to hear what other people have used and liked in the past.

I only ever put my wallet and keys, chapstick, and a pen in the diaper bag. Then when we just had quick little trips I would take a purse and swap my wallet to that carrying a diaper or two and wipes. I keep a bin of diapers, wipes, change of clothes, pads, underwear, and a shirt in my car at all times, along with the moby and ergo. So if I don't have it ON me, its only in the parking lot if needed

I'm thinking that I'll just use my 31 bag. I have a changing pad in a JuJuBe Be Right Back I can use. But I will probably end up getting another diaper bag somewhere down the road. I have a horrible habit of convincing myself that I NEED new things.

I'm going to be getting a ju-ju-be Be prepared. I love big diaper bags that can hold everything. I'm not sure of the print I'm getting yet but I had a ju-ju-be with my last daughter and loved my bag. I know it's a little pricey but it lasted me from her birth til I didn't need it anymore.

Got a 31 bag. I just use receiving blankets for the changing tables anyway. I have two old ones that fell out whenever I grabbed anything anyway.

Yes! I just bought a new diaper bag and it arrived on Thursday. I am super pleased with my decision and already have it packed with stuff !

JJ Cole Mode Baghttp://www.amazon.ca/JJ-Cole-JMMML-D...ole+diaper+bag

I got it for a wollap of a deal if you ask me $28 and free shipping. I see the price has gone back up on it. There is an excellent review on that page of the bag, which is what convinced me to buy it.

This is the one I had previously, and its still in great condition so I will keep using it as a baby luggage bag for travelling: California Innovations Columbia Outfitter Diaper Bag - Black - California Innovations - Babies"R"Us

I originally picked the Columbia bag because it had so many zippered compartments and it had interior zippered pockets which I really wanted. It was lightweight and seemed well made. The problem, which I did not forsee at the time, was that I don't actually like unstructured bags. It works great as an overnight bag, I can pack a ton in it, but I always end up bringing a second smaller diaper bag anyways on trips because I don't want to carry around all his luggage obviously. Using it as a diaper bag, I can NEVER find what I want unless its in a pocket because it just collapses all over the place.

The JJ Cole one is nicely structured and so easy to find things in. Its got plenty of pockets and I don't even mind that its missing the interior zippered compartment I wanted so badly with the first bag. It has little feet on the bottom to keep it off the ground and converts from messenger style to tote style. It also has hangers for the stroller which is a nice feature. Obviously at 70$ regular its more then I wanted to spend or would spend on a bag, but since I got it on sale that wasn't an issue. The quality is good too, well above the $30 I spent.

I did read some of the reviews on the American Amazon and it sounds like people who bought from a secondary seller on Amazon may be receiving counterfit products, but Amazon was the seller for the one I bought on the Canadian website and its perfect.

Now I sound like I work for JJ Cole.

Did the same thing -- I picked a large purse that converts to a smaller purse if you adjust the straps. It's roomy enough to put lots of diapers, changing pad and much more! You can also get it personalized. I just had our family last name put on it as when I go back to work after maternity leave I'll have to use a daycare service and I'd rather have our bag well labeled with our name Here's the info in case you're interested:



Vary You Versatile Bag Vary You Versatile Bag | Catalog | Thirty-One Gifts
Item Code: 4226
$75

I got the one that's turquoise in color, love it! The bag comes in a couple of other colors too. There are other styles of bag that can work for a diaper bag. Me personally, I didn't want something so huge it couldn't be placed under a seat or in a stoller storage area. And even though we are having a girl, I didn't want my hubby to feel awkward carrying it, so picking a design/color was easier with the turquoise fabric and was gender neutral enough (purchased before we knew we were having a girl).
