Is yours perfect?


So I am on the never ending search for THE perfect diaper bag. Hopefully someone here can help me end this search.

Things that are most important to me in a diaper bag:

1. Pockets, pockets and MORE pockets...I need organization.

2. Size...is it possible to fit everything I "need" and yet not be too bulky and heavy?

3. I want a tote bag with no cover/flap over the top. I hate dealing with the flap when trying to search for kids' stuff.

Okay, so what bag do you have and what do you like/dislike about it? Does a perfect bag exist?

I use a purse/tote. I got it at my MIL's store and there are NO pockets, which I hate. The bag is absolutely adorable and so I let the pocket thing slide.

I just found the diaper bag of my dreams. I love it with all my heart and it meets all your requirements. Not only that but it is really cute and has so many great features, including a detachable clutch.

The brand is Skip*Hop and it's their "City Chic" bag. Here's the link: http://www.skiphop.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=SH&Category_Code=DB&&Product_Code=41000

Here's the catch: they're expensive, of course.

I am of NO help in the whole diaper bag area. I just wish that I could use one, but I feel that it would look a little crazy if I carried one around. When is the big day of the move? I love the new pictures of your family...way cute!

I have a Vera Bradley diaper bag. I know it can be a bit girly for the boy stuff you would be carrying around, but, I mean, you are you one carrying it :) I like it because it's big enough, but not bulky. It has enough space for several diapers, wipes, food, changes of clothes, and all the small things like powder. There are 3 inside pockets and 4 outside, 2 for sippy cups/bottles. Another good quality is that it's washable. I haven't washed it yet, but I have washed purses of this brand and they still look good after a few washes. They run about $90, I think, but I feel like it's a good investment. Good luck in your search!

Did you look at ju-ju-be like kiki said. I LOVE THEM I am an organize freak. I NEED lots of pockets and storage. I have a big bag and I am getting a bigger one. My diaper bags only last me a couple of months and them I buy another one. I have used this one since rig was born he is 16 mo-- you have to check them out even if you don't get one know you should look into them for next time. They are a lot cheaper then most of the Big brands but still kindof expensive. They have tons of different sizes and colors!
