    Default Diaper bag suggestions

    So was at winners tonight and saw a nice diaper bag but not sure if its what i need....

    Carter's® Just One You® 5-in-1 Diaper Bag - Stripes | Sears Canada

    i like that it has compartments and a wide opening and a latch not a zipper to close it..an that it comes with another little tote and a fold out change table with a spot for dirty clothes/diapers.

    this one i like bc it has an insulated pocket for bottles...is this a big deal?

    Child of Mine Diaper Bag Green | Walmart.ca

    think i like the first one better bc it comes with a large and small bag...but dont know how often i would use small bag...any advice?

    or any suggestions on ones you have bought and liked?

    I'm using a Skip Hop Duo with this kiddo.

    SKIP*HOP® Chevron Duo Diaper Bag - BedBathandBeyond.ca

    I think I paid $20 for it from kijiji. I like how easily it clips onto a stroller I might go with something larger if I had 2 kids close together. I'm not a heavy packer (normally a change of clothes, some snacks, diapers, wipes, blanket, toy, sippy cup).

    A bottle holder is only necessary if you are planning on using bottles so that's totally up to you. Neither of my boys took one so we rarely used that pocket. I only ever used it for the keeping the homemade baby food cold but that wasn't until 6 months and even then, not that often. The small bags can also be handy for shorter or quick trips when you don't need the whole kit and caboodle. Honestly though, it's a personal choice that you have to to figure out what you want. If you like the one from winners, go for it!

    I also wanted To add that for me, straps to attach to the stroller were key as I didn't drive when ds1 was born. Also, a long strap that I could wear it across my Body as opposed to over the shoulder

    I had a shoulder bag that converted into a backpack. That wAs nice to not have to fuss over a shoulder bag.

    Ya know, just thinking back, i should have saved my $$ buying a Petunia Picklebottom and just gone to MEC and bought a proper backpack that I could still use today. 20/20 i guess.


    It really depends on your lifestyle. I never used a stroller so the stroller clips were never on my radar. Since i carried the baby in a Moby, a shoulder bag wasnt convenient, Hence the backpack.

    My husband advises to get a "daddy bag". My husband hated the girlie/baby prints that diaper bags came with, so i got him a smaller basic skip-hop messenger style bag. He still uses it for day trip when it is just him and the kid.

    We had several high end ones for my first. The moral of that story is it never seemed to do t job. The bag was either too small, too big, didn't attach to the stroller well enough or since I over pack was too heavy for me to carry while juggling baby!

    For my second we got a small backpack. Enough room for everything, easy to carry and was perfect for the messy stage. Even now at 2 and 4 I use it all the time, throw everything in, thrown in . Lunch and head to the park. For short trips I have a diaper and wipes in my regular purse.

    I've only ever bought them off kijiji and have been happy. We had the skip hop one and liked it a lot.

    The best diaper bag I had was the free one I got from Nestle (if you sign up for free samples on their website they send you one). The whole thing was insulated so we still use it now if we are going out for the day and need to pack a lunch. It was just a small backpack type one, but had enough room for the basics and had a pocket for bottles and came with a change pad too. I see a lot of parents using them at the daycare I work at.

    Finding a good diaper bag is challenging. I think we found ours a long time ago on Thinkgeek.com. We bought it way before we had a baby.

    I came across this list for best diaper bags for 2020. Some good advice in it. You can also check Amazon reviews obviously.
