@ThreeMeers:  diaper bags really shouldn’t b so expensive IMO and experience they all pretty much do the same thing too many compartments will actually confuse u more. One thing is make sure it has a zipper! Velcro snaps etc r a pain in the patooty

@ThreeMeers:  I wouldn’t pay that much to a diaper bag. Most moms I know only use them for a short time. I also am not a fan of big bags- I can never find anything. I’m going for a skip hop duo bag.

Well, I registered for the Skip Hop double deluxe since it goes easily on the back of a double pram for the girls, but it gets great reviews because of all the pockets for organising. Not the prettiest bag out there or the cheapest, but I need the bigness and the organisation.

I don’t have a baby, but I use the Coach diaper bag for a briefcase/laptop bag. It came with a changing pad that I obviously don’t use, haha. My only reason for purchasing it was because friends with kids kept buying it and raving about it (and its appearance- there’s like 50 versions of it), so I decided it would make a damn fine laptop bag. It’s large, has lots of outside pockets, and you can ram a ton of stuff inside of it. If you live near a Coach outlet they’re often on sale for about $100, or on ebay for that cost. On the actual site they’re about $400 I think.

I personally wouldn’t pay over $100 for a diaper bag.

I have a JJ Cole satchel bag and I love it. It’s really pretty and it’s easy to find everything, plenty of pockets, etc. It also comes with really nice grippy stroller straps.

I just use a largish tote bag that has the mesh on the sides to hold bottles and a pouch on the inside for small things like binkies or ointment. It’s big enough that I can shove juice pouches and snacks in it for both of my kids. And it’s cute 🙂

I refused to pay more than $30 for a diaper bag and I also wanted a bag that didn’t LOOK like a diaper bag (I didn’t want anything too cutesy or with characters on it).  

I got a nice bag at Walmart for $20 and I love it. I have not used it yet as baby isnt here yet but it looks like a larger purse.  Not too many pockets but functional and comes with a plastic pouch for dirty clothes and change table pad plus space inside for bottles.  I love it and cannot wait to rock it.  It’s green and black and has dots on it so it looks pretty stylish.  And if it doens’t last for too long and i have to get another bag, at least it was cheap.

I got a Converse duffle when I had my dd and still have that (it’s pink and brown).  It’s not a diaper bag but still usable even though this baby is a boy.

We got a big disper bag with lots of pockets and those awful cutsey characters on them. It was roomy without being massive, and CHEAP.

Hi I think a diaper bag needs to be 1 practical and 2 trendy if you get both in a cheap price then go for it I know that you can get really cool bags from $30 to over $300. Quality is also important the worse thing is to be out and about and the zipper brakes etc. $180 is not terrible but you can get for less, depends I guess on your budget.

I’m planning to get the Fisher Price FastFinder Carry All Diaper Bag. It’s a good size and it seems to have just the right number of pockets. It’s also only $30. I personally wouldn’t pay much more than that for a diaper bag. Are you looking for one that looks more like a purse though?
