Did/Do you carry a diaper bag? What's in it?

I never carried a diaper bag. I just stuck a few wipes in a ziploc bag, a diaper, and maybe a small toy in my purse and off we went.

I notice most mom's have giant bags full of all kinds of stuff...diapers, change of clothes, toys, bottles...

  • I can spot a first time parent at the mall a mile away. The cadilac stroller, 3 diaper bags, every toy, item imaginable haning off the sides of stroller, basket underneath over flowing.
    Then there is the veteran parent, umbrella stroller, Pamper in the back pocket of jeans.

  • No - I have an oversized cotton purse. I stick in diapers, travel pack of wipes, a few snacks and a bottle of water. I always keep a change of clothes for each kids in the car. If I'm dropping my son off somewhere he has a tiny backpack (it's actually intended as an insulated lunch bag, but it fits a 2 year old!), that he can put 2 diapers, small pack of wipes, snacks, sippy cup and a couple toys.

  • I leave it in the car unless I am going to be in a store for a long time. It has diapers, wipes, snacks, change of clothes, and toys in it.

  • I have a very busy 14 month old little boy! I carry diapers, wipes, boogie wipes, kleenex, 2 toys, camera, 1 change of clothes, a snack & sippy cup. If we're just going to the grocery store I bring a snack, sippy cup, 2 toys, a diaper and wipes.

  • Lately, it feels like my life is inside that bag! I carry diapers, wipes, extra pair of clothing, themometer, diaper cream, tylenol, sunscreen, fork and spoon, goldfish and crackers, crayons, paper, paper bibs, my wallet and keys.

  • Everything I need usually fits in my large purse. If we are going to church we pack the "daddy bag" (which my husband carries) and it has more toys and activities to keep them quiet during the Liturgy.
    I have a 2yr old and a 1yr they can get noisy if we don't have distractions!
    Otherwise just some diapers, wipes and a snack and sippy cup will be ok for the day.
