Can we play Show me your Diaper Bag?

Title says it all. I'm going to be needing a bigger better diaper bag here in a few months, and since I have never really had one I liked, I want one I
So.. can I see yours, inside and out? Packed would be great, I need to fit a lot of stuff, so knowing what fits will be awesome.

I may have to play along, too, if I can get a chance to take pictures.

Re: Can we play Show me your Diaper Bag?

Hey all, I took pictures of my bag. Its a skip hop duo deluxe. I love its capacity but it does have flaws.

This is my bag stage one. I put work files in the back by the diaper changing pad. I have to stand the pad up because even though it is meant to sit sideways, it doesn't go in and out easily like that. The bag is lined with diapers (standing up) and then 2 outfits.



This is the bag from the front, see how it is dipping down? That annoys me to no end. The wallet pocket is at the top and my wallet (gifted to me but wonderful) is so big/heavy that it causes the bag to slump inward.


Wallet pocket



There are a lot of pockets around, I don't really use them to the fullest yet. I stuff a wet bag in one, wipes in another. I have a few rattles and gift cards floating around in the others. They would be good for bottles and other stuff. I will probably use them more as she gets older and eats real food.



So then I throw a few blankets and toys on top.



And my baby k'tan on top of that (I wear her a lot at work)



And then zipped up.



I use those front few pockets to hold my keys, phone, chapstick and stuff like that. I know that is what the wallet pocket is for but I can't really open the wallet pocket with one hand because of the way the bag slumps.

So that's it. A skip hop duo deluxe packed for about 8 hours out and about. I don't carry it most of the time. It sits by my desk or if we go to the mall or something it straps to the stroller.

I'll play! I have a Ju Ju Be Be Prepared, and I love it! Two kids in CDs, and a 3 yo who is potty trained. It's big, but I use the whole thing. It's always with me.

From the front:


Mommy pocket, aka my purse:


And the main compartment. It has two large pfs, 3 small pfs, 2 pockets, 2 sposies, and some snacks in the middle. In the other pockets are wetbags, sposie wipes, nursing cover (not that I ever even use it), Dappi pull-on covers just in case, pacis, teething and colic tablets, bibs, and other snacks. The very back pocket has the changing pad, an A&A blanket, and my ringsling. The kids' sippy cups go on the sides.
