Re: Is there a perfect diaper bag???

My fave is the petunia picklebottom roll diaper bags. The fabric is gorgeous and you can wear it as a backpack OR with a strap long enough to wear across the body (essential for me as the others always slide down off my shoulder). They are $$ new but you can usually get a deal on them if they are used.

Re: Is there a perfect diaper bag???

There are a bazillion, gazillion handmade totes on etsy.com - some labeled for dipes, some not. There's bound to be one out there that works for you. I just bought this crazy bag:

http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction...ion_id=5708931

Check out the freaky pattern - how fun is that!!

I also love Zoe's Bag Boutique. Her large bags are awesome, and her wallets are a string are the coolest thing ever.

zoesbagboutique.etsy.com or http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5162066
http://stores.ebay.com/ZOES-BAG-BOUTIQUE

The Wallet on a String tucks into any diaper bag or tote and holds everything you need in your wallet, but is on a cord so you can leave the big bag at home if you actually get to run to the store without the kids. Or, if you leave your diaper bag in the car (which I don't recommend) or underneath the stroller, you can pull this out and carry it with you so your valuables won't get stolen. Before I got this my diaper bag & wallet were stolen out of my car and later my identity was stolen. With this wallet, I won't ever leave it behind again.

I have a kecci, but am replacing it.

A ju ju be is next on my list. Teflon coated to keep crumbs out, and designed to last and hold what you need.

Copy and paste it but leave out the "IMG]" part and it'll work just fine.

Beautiful bag!! I've got a pink/green/fruffy one that's really similar for my "girly" bag and I love it!

Re: Is there a perfect diaper bag???

I have this one and love it! It is pretty and large enough with tons of pockets which I absolutely love. It is pretty but not over the top since it also blk. It has feet on the bottom so when you put it down it doesn't rub on the bottom. I also have had the Kecci Shanghai bag which is like the Petunia pickle bag/back pack but it is all brocade and eventually it gets worn on the bottom.

I got this at Nordstrom's Rack for $30!! I want more..

Re: Is there a perfect diaper bag???

I went through bags like water with DS1, so for DS2 I decided I was gonna research and buy a nice one, even if I had to penny pinch and save to get it, with the hope of finding THE one, kwim? Turns out the one I wound up with wasn't even too terribly $$! Now I've used the same bag for 16 months, which is just crazy for me. I really do love it and don't have a single complaint.

It's the SkipHop Dash:
