Right now, I am out of town so I'm packed pretty heavy. We are going out for the day, so about 6 hours. I have:

3 prefolds with doublers
A Flip stuffed with a flat (emergency diaper, I hate Flips)
A wool soaker
Change of clothes
Extra socks
Two tubes of rash cream (CJs and Grandma El's)
Extra diaper pins
Wet bag
Cloth and sposie wipes
3 baby toys
Pocket knife
Water bottle
Wristlet wallet
Headband for me
Granola bars

I typically only carry two diapers, and rarely have a change of clothes if we are just around town.

This is all packed in my Go Gaga Slide bag. It's a lot smaller than my Ju Ju Be Be All, but easier to carry while wearing the baby.

Re: whats in your diaper bag???

We have two kids. One is potty trained but still having the rare accident, the other is full-time diapered. We use both cloth and disposable.

In the bag:
one Best Bottoms shell with insert snapped in
one extra BB insert
a couple disposables
a bottle of water
a second bottle with pre-measured formula
a small toy
a bib

In the van we keep a small bag (Ju Ju Be Be Quick) with another thing of wipes, a plastic bag, and a clean pair of pants for the big kid. Diaper bag goes with the baby, Be Quick stays in the van.

I usually take:

Two Tots Bots Easy Fits
Small wet bag
Some pre-moistened wipes. That's about it for the CDing.

Then of course I've got my wallet, phone, Swiss army knife, re-usable shopping bag, mints, and one sippy cup. I travel pretty light. I keep a spare change of clothes and a blankie in the car at all times, so I don't have to carry it around in my bag.

* Diapers, of course... how many depends on if both diapered children are leaving the house or just one, and how long we anticipate the outing to be. Anywhere from 2 to 6 diapers, really! We use fitteds only.

* A couple fleece soakers just in case. We use wool mostly but you never know what will happen so I want to have something I can pull over the diaper easily if there's some kind of accident.

* Handful of wipes. We use cloth wipes exclusively. I just grab some. Don't know how many is in there.

* Our extra bottle of spray solution.

* Some board books for the older ones to look through while we're on the road

* Sippy cups and some on-the-go snacks for the older ones, and a thermos of water, empty bottle, and can of formula for the youngest

Re: whats in your diaper bag???

I was a terrible over-packer, but I've been rehabilitated. For my two kids, here's what I pack (one is potty training, the other is still full diapers at 2.5yrs).

1 pair training pants
1 diaper for every 2-3hrs we'll be gone plus one extra (just in case)
CJ's BUTTer stick
cloth wipes

Realistically, even if you're running errands all day long (6-7hrs) that's still only 3 or 4 diapers needed. If you use something trim like Best Bottoms, you can bring two shells and 3-4 inserts with plenty of room left over. I pack everything into the front pocket of my Planet Wise wet/dry bag and then put that in my diaper bag. I can grab that when changes are needed and not need to haul the whole bag unnecessarily.

EDIT: I should add that I usually also pack a water bottle for each kid, my wallet, and glasses case, and phone. Sometimes a snack.
