My sister NEVER goes out without a diaper bag because sure enough, they’ll get to where they’re going and my nephew will have pooped up his back and need his clothes changed. 😛

At abour 6 months, we started ditching the diaper bag unless we were going to be out for several hours.  Now, I just carry an extra diaper, a bottle of water, a snack container of puffs, and an extra lovey in my purse.  Sooooooo much easier than lugging the whole diaper bag around!

I never used one. Just put whatever I needed in my purse.

I have a confession, Addie’s never had a “blowout.”  Not even once.  Maybe that’s why we feel ok about taking her out without a diaper bag, lol!

@808bride: What kind of cloth diapers do you use?

My baby isn’t here yet, but I’m always very paranoid and prepared so the bag will always be with us.

@808bride: That’s great to hear, we’re going to be using the same diapers. I hope we won’t have any problems either!

I love my BGs, Fuzzibunz and Oh Katy one size diapers!!!  And i literally get an anxiety attack even thinking of forgetting my diaper bag….

However, I’m a coach snob and my mom bought me a super cute coach baby bag that is like a large purse so I kinda like carrying it since it’s not very big as diaper bags go…  Maybe I should try to ditch it.  We don’t have any blowouts in our cloth either!  I need to have many burp/spit up rags with me though since Kayla is a spitter…

We don’t use a stroller.  We baby wear, so I just stuff a diaper in the front pocket of baby wearing and we’re good to go.  I also have never carried a purse, so maybe I’m just weird.  I like to carry as little stuff as possible!  We do still bring the diaper bag on longer outings.

I always used the diaper bag because I could take formula, water, bottle, extra pacifier, baby wipes, clothes (my son was drooling so much by 3 months, he’d ALWAYS need a change whenever we stopped… early teether, too), and anything else I needed or wanted.  Toys, blanket, bibs, etc etc.

I also typically kept a stocked diaper bag in the car because I’d typically forget it.  Same with extra baby wipes.  Eventually I’d just grab extra diaper and wipes and that’d be it.  Or I’d leave the diapers in the car with wipes, since I’d end up forgetting them, too.

Then again, I didn’t have normal kids (even the pediatrians agreed that I had unusual children…).  Each kid is different, so you have to do what’s best for you and your baby.

I don’t have a baby but I think lots of mom’s end up with one all purpose bag, either their purse items live in the diaper bag until the baby is older (like my sister in law does) or the baby items end up crammed in the purse haha. I can see why though, lugging around 2 bags and a stroller/baby/baby in car seat does not seem fun.

My child is almost a year. SOMETIMES I will leave with just putting the bare minimum in my purse if we arent going out for long, but I always have a bag… This is a disaster just waiting. You never know when they are going to hav that runny poop go all up their back and you will need a new diaper wipes and a change of clothes as they get older it will be handy because you will need to pack snacks etc. Dont get to used to not having one it can turn into  your best friend.

Only if I am literally going out for a quick 10 minutes, like the bank. Otherwise, hell to the no. My son poops, and pees way too much.
