What's in the Bag?

So I was cleaning and reorganizing my diaper bag and thought it would be cool to see what everyone else carried around with then. Show me what you're packing!


Diaper clutch with all the fixin's and spare clothes
Fleece jacket and hat
Bib
Burp rag
2 relatively quiet toys
Ring sling
Wallet and car keys
Sunglasses
Kleenex
Peanuts for me and puffs for Jackie

It's amazing what I can cram into this bag!

  • Haha! I don't carry a diaper bag lol. I have a couple of extra diapers/ pull ups and wipes as well as formula and bottle plus a few snacks and juice boxes in the car.

  • Haha! I guess that's the obvious difference between a veteran and a ftm.

    My SiL laughed at my diaper bag when she first saw it because it's huge. She swore that if she ever had a baby, she would be buying a smaller, stylish bag. Whatevs, I love my bag. It's been a lifesaver many times.

    This is the one I have and I LOVE it.  I had two backpacks and a crossbody but this has been the best for us.  It does tend to get heavy but I love having everything in one place and it's definitely saved us many times already.  It also keeps me organized with all the different pockets.

    Mine is by Babymoov. It's pretty much the same size as your bag, I think.

    I have a Petunia Pickle Bottom tote and the straps are already fraying! It sucks because it was an expensive diaper bag! I think I need a cross body bag, or at least a bag that has the capability to be cross body.

    Can you turn it in for warranty? Also, the handles look leather, how are they fraying?

    i really like crossbody, especially with an adjustable strap. I got mine specifically because there was only one strap and I could wear it cross body or not. Straps tend to slide off my shoulder, which doesn't work for me when I'm trying to carry Jackie.

  • Mine can be a cross body or I can use the two handles. I usually use it as a cross body when it isn't hanging on my stroller. My husband has a cross body messenger style diaper bag by Diaper Dude. I use that when doing shorter trips since I don't need as much stuff. It's a really nice bag and he loves it.

    The "leather" is pulling off of whatever material is under it, I guess peeking or chipping would be a better description

    I straight went high school on my diaper bag and got a jansport backpack with a lifetime warranty. Cost me $27 after tax and it works awesome I carry
    5-10 diapers cuz I never know if we will be gone all day
    change of clothes
    swaddle
    formula can and food pouch one 9oz bottle 
    pacifier
    puffs can
    wipes clutch
    bib
    pads for me
    i also carry my own small purse that when needed can be stuck into the backpack with everything else.
    i leave a spare hat and jacket for her in the car as well as three random toys.

    We live in the desert so it fits and my husband and I both use it so it couldn't be girly.
    I love the pattern!

    I am a sucker for anything cactus print. Four years living in Phoenix and I'm still not sick of it!
