@pittgirl4:  Hands down Petunia Pickle Bottom– I’ve owned a shoulder bag (discontinued), Boxy backpack (my suggestion for mom’s of newborns), Sashay Satchel (another great one for almost any age), Touring Tote (better for older babies/toddler when you don’t have to pack the kitchen sink)– and Weekender– which is a great bag if you’re a big packer, can be used for weekend trips for baby, as an overnight for an adult– or just a big bag for anything.  LOVE.

I still use the Touring Tote as a handbag for ME.

I was introduced to this brand the Christmas before my son was born.  My parents got me the Shoulder bag as a gift– my dad said “when you have a baby, your bag is your staple!  It should be nice and functional and something you enjoy carrying”They are excellent quality– just wonderful, and I can’t wait to get a new one when my husband and I get pregnant.

Yes, they are pricey– but again, the quality is wonderful. I also own luggage tags by them, a train case, powder room cases (which I gave to my BMs as part of thier gift), and a wallet!!

I like my Perry Mackin.  I had a Petunia Picklebottom, but it was velcro.  Everytime I would open it LO would jump or cry.  Whatever you decide, I would advise against velcro.

@mshoagie:  …Oh, boy. I never thought of the velcro noise! I hope it doesn’t scare Baby when she arrives!

I also have a Petunia Pickle Bottom Boxy Backpack!

I wanted a bag that looked like a purse instead of a child’s bag. I found a very cute diaper bag on amazon. I love it.

I liked my JJ Cole diaper bag. I see Coach ones that I think are cute…

Really love my skip hop bag for all the handy pockets (plus I need the space with two babies), but if I had just one baby I’d totally just go for a big tote bag instead of an actual diaper bag. You end up throwing everything in the middle anyway, even with special pockets for diapers, bottles, etc, and the real handbag just looks so much less mumsy. My SIL has a massive Louis Vuitton tote that works perfectly, and she always looks so chic carrying it around… Unlike me with my massive black diaper bag.

I actually used the Thirty One Cargo Purse as my diaper bag at first and LOVED it! I loved that it didn’t look like a diaper bag at all. I only switched because I needed something bigger when we switched to cloth diapers full time.

@Ugoob:  I like the looks of that one, too. I think it’s JP Lizzy, and they are also really affordable. 

I’m commenting to follow, because a good, well-designed bag that doesn’t look obvious as a diaper bag is on the top of my priority list. There are so many options.

I have the most adorable Kate Spade diaper bag. It is seriously the most beautiful diaper bag I have ever seen. It’s also a huge pain in the bum- it doesn’t have a zipper (it has a beautiful ribbon closure, that I, of course, never take the time to tie) so all of the stuff falls out when it tips over in the car. It also doesn’t have big enough pockets to organize everything so I’m always digging around trying to find what I need. I am constantly debating about getting another one, but did I mention how beautiful it is?! 🙂 Anyway, my advice- get one that zips closed and has lots of big pockets for organizing!
