I know this has been asked before but for some reason the search feature returns zero results. GRRRR!
I'm trying to decide on a diaper bag. Does anyone recommend any of the Skip Hop bags? Other brands/styles? Thanks!

I have the skip hop double duo deluxe-or something like that.Either I do not know how to pack or it is not that big because it seems just ok for an outing.
I usually take with me.
formula in small case
wipes,4 diapers, change of clothes for each on,burp clothe X2.Bibsx2,diapercream,wet ones,a small toy.
I had the Skip Hop Dash with DS1 and really liked it. It has tons of pockets and a few different zippered compartments. It's easy to clean, and I loved that you could strap it onto a stroller so it wasn't just hanging there. It's too small to use with two kinds in cloth diapers though, so when I had DS2 I was gifted a huge Coach bag. It's not as functional as the Skip Hop, but I've been using it for 18 months.
I am currently considering getting the Duo Double since I will have three in diapers and it seems it should hold enough stuff, but I don't like that it will only strap onto a side-by-side stroller, since we don't have one and aren't planning on using one. Also, my Dash is in black so DH still uses it when he goes out with the boys. No way would he carry my Coach bag.
My sister bought me the Coach diaper bag. We were out yesterday and had a change for each girl, about 10 diapers (wipes & cream, too), a couple burp cloths, and 4 bottles. I fit my wallet & some other "purse" stuff in the outside compartments so I don't have to carry a separate handbag.
DH has a bag by Eddie Bauer that we registered for at BRU. We've used it, but never by it itself (if we're going visiting all day, we tend to overpack), although it certainly seems like we could.
Honestly, my diaper bag is a duffle bag. Fits a lot, highly recommend. I paid $14 for it

I haven't gotten to use it yet but I did pack it and I have plenty of room still.
DH bought me the Petunia Pickle Bottom Abundance Boxy Backpack which is designed for multiples. It has pockets for twice as many bottles, diapers, etc. It's very well made, and while pricey, I'm hoping it will hold its own for a very long time.
Here's a clicky:
Thanks for the links and ideas! I have a few I'm going to check out in person. I just wish they weren't so dang expensive! LOL
I have a Skip Hop Duo and I love, love, love it.
Diaper bags are a personal preference. There are lots of options to choose from based on your lifestyle and your personal style. Do you prefer a backpack to a diaper bag that looks like a purse? Do you want a small or large bag - colors and patterns???
Some other great brands to consider are Timi & Leslie, Amy Michelle, Baby Sherpa, etc.
