    This is Chloe's diaper bag. I HATE the huge ones. A friend got this for me at my shower :)

  • I HATE using a diaper bag, period. I will always have it in the car but usually I will throw a diaper and sippy cup or whatever we need in my purse :)

  • I do the same, keep a bag in the car and shove what is needed in my purse. I always hated actual diaper bags.... They never were right for me. Either too big or too small, or just not the organization in it I needed/

  • I have a very small bag that I carry (equivalent of a purse, I guess, but it's more like a really small reusable grocery bag). No compartments, nothing. It was just big enough for the portable changing pad, my wallet and phone, and a cup of water. I always liked to wear the little one and let the big girl (she was only 15 months when my 2nd was born) walk as much as possible rather than push a stroller, so I didn't want extra weight on me. You can still throw in little snacks and things... Sometimes, like during potty training when I would need a change of clothes to be safe, I would keep a bigger bag of things in the car.

  • I have a big bag that my husband grandmother made me. It doesn't look like a diaper bag at all. It has all kinds of pockets in it to carry my wallet, bottles, sippy cups and tons of room for extra clothes, diapers and such. I love it. I have three kids, the oldest just turned 3 and my youngest is 4 months so I have quite a bit to fit in a bag. I am looking forward to just needing to carry for one and going back to a regular size purse bag.

  • We always used a backpack; I have never seen a truly practical, gender neutral, diaper bag
