We have one main one that travels in my vehicle (where my daughter primarily is) but we have a backup in my husband’s car that has less toys and bibs. The first one I got was too small and ended up with a cheaper, larger one. Tote style should definitely work.

We got a plain black skip hop duo and shared it. It was the one baby thing I made him take the lead on deciding. 

Now that we’re expecting #2 in a few weeks, I got a new kate spade bag that I put an organizer in and he still uses the original one as needed.

I really want one of those zippable beach-bag sized Kate spades with little compartments inside.

We have multiple bags, but one main bag I carry in the car and restock. It’s a Ju Ju Be BFF plain black with gold hardware. It’s not feminine so Darling Husband can carry it too. He has a bag in his car with a change of clothes, couple diapers, wipes, and a clean cup. The bag I carry has a bit more to it with more space for my things also. If I’m running a quick errand I just use a simple tote and put basics in it and just carry that.

We just had one bag that was plain black.  And I might be the exception to the rule but I barely use it!  Since we provide diapers in bulk to daycare every month or so, there’s no need to bring a bag back and forth.  When we go somewhere, though, we will usually grab the bag and take it along  🙂

SouthernBee00:  I have two. One is a bit larger than the other, and I take that one if I am going somewhere with her for longer periods of time (5+hours). However, I recently turned my smaller diaper bag into my work/pump bag, and I love it for that purpose too!

You can definitely just get away with one, or even just a bag with some pockets!

We both go our own for a couple of reasons. One for me is that I can see me tossing my stuff in my bag, and if we shared and he had her and I didn’t have my wallet, that would be a problem. Second, my husband is particular when it comes to bags, accessories (trust me everyone I’m rolling my eyes with you) so he wanted one that was his style. Third, just not having to worry about him not having stuff if he unexpectedly had to pick her up or drop her off with someone.

We got the black SkipHop and share it since it’s either in the car or in her stroller so it’s not like he’s carrying it like a purse. So far it holds up great and does the job!

We have two but only really use one so far. I got the Kate Spade Colby Court in navy/pink polkadot and my husband has a more masculine black bag because the Kate was a bit too girly. Well, we only use the Kate so far because my husband rarely has the baby alone (I’m exclusively breastfeeding). I also use it as a handbag to hold my phone/wallet etc.

I’d say when our baby is a bit older (she’s only 7 weeks at the moment!) he’ll start carrying his bag in his car.

I think a large tote would be fine. I don’t use the internal pockets so much but the external side pockets and change mat get a good workout.

I have a Adaira bag from KATE SPADE. Baby isn’t due yet, but I love it. It also comes with a longer strap. I’ve been using it already. Dh will get a more masculine bag for himself – probably some back-pack styled one.

I would recommend two diaper bags. My friend has one that goes to daycare and one for herself.  The daycare bag is a cheap tote in which she keeps things compartmentalised using Ziploc bags.  Things easily get dirty and she doesn’t have to worry about an expensive bag being ruined. Having her own personal diaper bag leaves less room for her to forget her personal items and she keeps it prepacked with certain items for the baby.

SouthernBee00:  We are expecting our first baby within the month and decided on the Storksak Poppy bag. It’s black so either of us can carry it. I like the long shoulder strap (that’s how I usually wear my bags). It comes with a travel changing mat and an insulated food bag. 

 

There are pockets inside (incl a zip one for your wallet, phone etc), 2 pockets on the outside on each end (I can see these being very handy) and one long on the back.
