My $35 Skip hop (Target) diaper bag held up amazingly well for 2+ years.
This time around I'm looking to splurge on something nicer. Any suggestions? I looked at a Coach outlet bag and just don't love it...help! Can't make up my mind. :)
I have a PPB that I bought with DD 3+ years ago. I love it, but I just bought this bad boy:
in Stone Arbor. I cannot wait to use it. It has a ton of room and pockets. I will have plenty of space for DD and DS's stuff.

Training to become an IBCLC. BF Questions? Just ask!
I have a Coach one and don't love it. It doesn't have many pockets and I was always worried about getting it dirty because it is Coach and it is light pink. It was a gift at my shower for DD. I am having a boy this time and have had my eye on a Skip Hop one at Toys R Us that is black and lime and it looks like it has tons of storage :)
mamaREB29:I was given a JuJuBe Be Prepared and I LOVE IT. It's huge!
I just recieved my Ju Ju Be Be Prepared in the mail today, ordered it through Amazon after many suggestions on here. It is very nicely made (watch the reviews on youtube). Has memory foam padded shoulder strap and a nice pocket for all of mommy's things. Plus it can fit a ton of stuff if need be and opens really wide for easy access to find things. I love it.
i also really love my kate spade stevie. it's the right size and what i love most is that it doesn't look like a diaper bag, it looks like a purse. it's black nylon and has has patent leather bows on the side pockets.
A lot of these patterned diaper bags are NMS because they scream diaper bag to me. I've had a lot of people compliment mine; they're usually pretty shocked when i say "thanks, it's a diaper bag."
I splurged and got a Kate Spade Stevie too (half off mind you- I can't fathom spending the $400 on a full price one!!!)... I love this bag. Super cute, doesn't look like a diaper bag, but functions like one well. Not a ton of pockets, but enough, and I've also find pockets aren't always helpful.
I've learned for organization, I need to use small insert bags. This is true in all of the diaper bags I've had... Which is a lot...
Jujube packabe- didn't love it. Too heavy for my taste, also didn't like that it was square. Bad shape for a diaper bag in my opinion. Deep makes it tough to keep organized, even with lots of pockets. Oh and the straps were not comfy either.
PPB boxy backpack- I had the old style, which wasn't glazed. I again didn't like the straps (pretty but slippery and not padded), and didn't like the square shape. Seriously lost everything in it!
PPB Touring Tote- adorable but too small for two... Same issue with the straps also as the boxy backpack
Skip Hop Dash- I actually loved this bag and have seriously considered getting the duo as a backup bag but I think my husband might divorce me if I buy another diaper bag!!! =) (kidding, sort of)
Also, I like having a backpack option for some outings. I've decided to replace my DH's daddy bag (we ruined it by drying it) with a nice backpack and inserts. You could take this idea to any large bag you loved. Get a diaper changing station (holds diapers, wipes and a pad) a few inserts, throw in a beautiful bag you love, and voila, perfect diaper bag!
But I really do love my stevie. They come in TONS of patterns, and I most love that many of them have brightly colored linings which makes finding stuff so much easier! Oh, but if you prefer the canvas material like I did don't get a light color. Mine is black & white stripes with faux patent leather bottom and trim... I've realized now that I have to get this bag dry cleaned and it is already pretty filthy on the white parts near the bottom...
We bought the Coach diapers bag at the local outlet clearance section. We love it. It's between the size of a tote bag and a purse. It's the only one left over there. So, we bought it first. So far, we have no regret and not planning to look for another one.
I am thinking about this one
