Diaper Bags

I haven't bought a diaper bag yet, mostly because I haven't seen anything that has really moved me toward a purchase.

Please tell me about your most favorite diaper bags. I'm at a loss here.

    I got a cute one as a gift over the summer that was handmade. It's just a simple tote bag with pockets on the inside and the pattern is one with Curious George. It's cute, but something my husband wouldn't mind carrying.

    I do however lust over the Vera Bradley baby bag in Java Blue though.....

    I have these two:

    and

    The first one was only $50 at Babies R Us (though I registered for it and got it as a gift). The second was an anniversary gift from my husband and a lot more than $50.

    My sister had a Vera Bradley, but they're not really my style.

    I always liked the Lands' End diaper bags. They come in different sizes, are gender neutral, lots of nice pockets, including insulated pockets for bottles, they're affordable, and, they're "Guaranteed. Period."

    The "Little Tripper" which is good for day use is $19.50. The "Do It All" is $29.50 and you can pack for a weekend in it. They have a backpack version that is $39.50.

    We have a green one from Eddie Bauer. It's functional, holds enough, and my husband will carry it too. That's all I really wanted, so I don't care that it doesn't look that great - it works.

    I had a blech, boring one from Eddie Bauer last time -- navy canvas w/ a window pane check pattern. (What was I thinking?)

    This time I think I will buy something from the Timi and Leslie line at Zappos or one of the Le Sportsacs. (But I'm taking suggestions, too.) I want something washable, well designed and lthat ooks good w/ my clothes. No back packs.

    I had a LeSportsac diaper bag for a while after Emma was born and I loved it. My only complaint was that the nylon was too flexible, so unless you had it stuffed, it didn't look right.

    I'm trying hard not to buy new stuff, but those Timi & Leslie bags are cute.

    I have a Lands End diaper bag in black microfiber that I like for longer trips, it fits lots of stuff/. Not sure if they still have the microfiber bags, though.

    not enough junk in the bag? I don't think that will be a problem for me! LOL

    Which pattern did you have?

    I like LeSportsac, don't you? I've had a few of their bags over the years.

  • velvet pawsvelvet paws Registered Users Posts: 1,250
    Oh, I hadn't even thought of LeSportsac ... I love some of their prints. I didn't know they made diaper bags.

    I think some fo the Eddie Bauer bags might be good for DH. I need to get him his own "manly" diaper bag, because anything I'd want to carry myself, he won't like.

    Having at least one diaper bag with a zipper is a must! When I last flew with DS, I was cursing my backpack diaper bag that only snapped closed.

    Like RCW - I really like the Land's End ones. I'm even more happy that some of the Canadian Retailers are carrying them up here. Now only if they would adjust for the parity of the dollar!

    I have a few. A friend bought me a diaper bag from Red Envelope. I mostly liked it but it didn't stay on my shoulder right. Then I bought a Bumble Bag in a nice practical print that I hoped wouldn't offend my husband too much.

    It's backpack style which I really liked when dealing with a tiny squirmy baby.

    At about a year old when Xander didn't need as much stuff, I bought what I wanted. No thinking about Daddy at all. Guess what, he carries it anyway! I bought a Petunia Picklebottom toddler tote. I love this bag!

    For imaginary baby number two, I will likely get another PP in one of the larger sizes. I love the bright happy prints.

    I like LeSportsac, don't you? I've had a few of their bags over the years.

    It was called "Storybook" and it was pretty bunnies, puppies, and chicks drawn in a very sweet nature. They don't make it anymore unfortunately.

    I really do like LeSportsac. I have a couple of tote bags that I use during the summer and I love how easy they are to throw in the washer and be done with them.

    My favourite is by Juicy Couture and it is expensive ($350....) but I love it.

    I had two (one from Target and one from ebags)---and I didn't really use them. I found that everything I needed (changing pad, extra outfit, wipes, receiving blanket, burp cloth and 2-3 diapers) could fit into a small toiletry kit which went into a tote or one of my larger handbags. Nursing solved the bottle issue.

    I also have a petunia picklebottom toddler tote. I love it. It fits all my son's son, plus a bunch of my stuff, since I don't carry a purse if I'm carrying the diaper bag. Plus, you can wear it over your shoulder, across your chest, or as a backpack.

    Ditto. I found that I'm just not a diaper bag person. I always have a tote in the car that has a stash of diapers, wipes, snacks, a sippy, some toys and an extra change of clothes. Then I just toss a diaper and wipes and a snack in the stroller basket or my normal handbag and go.

    When DS was really small, I had a Skip Hop bag that fit onto my stroller.

    If I have to carry a bag (for example when travelling) then I prefer a backpack so that my hands are free. I have the Kecci Shanghai.

    I have as many diaper bags as I do strollers. :lol:

    I have a two GAP diaper bags. One is solid pink, the other pink gingham with a zipper.

    A pink Skip Hop

    A black Nine West

    A black Kate Spade messenger style bag

    And my Coach, which I got last spring. It's a diaper bag that doubles as a laptop/business tote:

    Mine isn't black, though. It's camel colored.

    Just FYI- our Eddie Bauer did not hold up well. The stitching came apart within the first year.

    We have three. The one I use is a black bowlign ball bag looking bag with a tatto looking heart that says "TRUE LOVE" across it. It's bad-aass. My husbadn carries a more manly diaper bag that is canvas and whiskey colored leather with his fav. football team's logo tooled into the leather. It's pretty nice. The third is Camo and orange.

    My SIL bought me that exact bag and print for me. I love it but use it for myself more than a diaper bag. The two straps are a pain. One always falls down. We bought the new sling bag in both the pink and blue mod floral. And then we have a plain black suede one.

    I love the PP bags. I just lost a bid on ebay for a new one. I will keep trying though. I don't want to pay full price!

    DH got this diaper bag for me last Christmas. I love it. Although now, it's more than I need.

    I just recently switched over to the Landsend Little Tripper that we got as a baby gift. It's much smaller but more convenient now that Chas is bigger. I love it. I didn't think I would like it when I first got it but it's very convenient.

    A nice leather bag (like Medussa's) sounds pretty good to me. Hmmmmmm, decisions, decisions.

    I have a really obnoxious PP that I LOVE. Little girls and old ladies are always chasing me down to find out where it came from. I also have a Kate Spade that's huge but I think they've discontinued the style.

    I have a few others, but I mostly stick to those. I'm really liking that Timi and Leslie business, tho.

    Wow thanks for the offer. I'll definitely let you know. So far I'm winning a couple of bids. I may end up with more than one of these bags! LOL

    We have 3 of them, which we rarely use. Because DH has the baby during the day, I put a khaki green one on our registry and got it- it's nice and roomy, but I keep it in the truck of my car. If we're going into a restaurant or whatever I throw the bottles in a bottle tote, and a diaper and compact wipe container into my big old purse and just carry that.

    pTRU1-2787497reg.jpg

    The other two were given to us by my nephew's wife (they didn't use them)- a black Gap backback that stays at DH's work and a cute black Kate Spade that I've taken out once or twice ( similar to the Coach tote above)
    Don't let your heart be broken. Let it love.
