Arrow Help me find a diaper bag, please?

It has been a while since I have had littles. When I did, I bought my DB on what *I* liked (looks really). Now, things are different. My husband & teen sons will have to help carry the bag at times. I want something that won't make them cringe. Also, I need something a bit bigger since we will be hauling around 2-3 little people.

I wasn't sure if there was a bag CD mamas liked better, so I thought I would ask. I really want a Petunia Picklebottom, but don't know if it's worth the price.

Re: Help me find a diaper bag, please?

i love my ju ju be bag. i have a be spicy but i think it would be too small for more than one little one. the be prepared and bff are better for more than 1. they are totally worth the price and you can find them used for a cheaper price. they hold up great too and are machine washable.

I just Made one out of a Basic Pattern... we call them Dump bags LOL cause you have to dump it out to see whats it in due to its size But if your Organized it works great its Like the Re-useable grocery Bags at the stores but 2x the size i just sewed it Up added a Few Little Pockets inside for ointments, wipes formula and what not and some on the outside for Bottles. Used Snaps to avoid any zipper snafoos I will inevitably have and Padded the Shoulder and it was superb Wish I had a Pic before I gave it to my friend.

I have this LUG bag


IT!!! It fits 8-10 cloth diapers easily, plus snacks, extra clothes (for DS3) and all my "purse" stuff. DH doesn't care about carrying it, although he's forever loosening the shoulder strap on me, lol.
It was $$, but I bought it with gift money and it was totally worth it!

I plan on getting a Skip Hop Studio Tote. They don't look super girly, and they are big enough for a couple kids.

My friend, whose baby I sat for once a week during the summer, uses one of the http://www.thirtyonegifts.com/Catalog/Product/27/, and it was great! It comes in a bunch of patterns and colors so there might be something your boys would be okay with carrying.

My favorite bag is not a diaper bag, it is a Dakine backpack. I think the backpack is much easier to carry than a shoulder strap bag. This bag has everything I need. Tons of pockets including an insulated cooler pocket, fleece lined sunglass pocket, and an organizational pocket which is my mommy pocket. There is tons of room for diapers and anything else you need for a full day of adventure! My DH never hesitates to carry it and they come in cool prints. http://www.dakine.com/p/packs/street...womens/eve-28l
