With my first baby I made the mistake of buying a regular diaper bag. I probably used it 10 times or less. I'm a handbag lover and I just hated hated to have to carry my bag and the diaper bag and I was definitely not going to settle for only using the diaper bag. So I ended up using my nice bags to carry diapers around (not a great idea).

This time I started researching early and found these bags which are SOOO cute

they are not cheap, so I checked online and found some new on ebay and bought one for $65.
this is the model i bought in cream

got mine this week and it's PERFECT, i love it! and $65 is pretty much what I spent on my first diaper bag which is now storing dust in my garage

I wanted to share the link to give the new mommy ideas to chose different diaper bags that can also be nice bags and not have to carry the Winnie the Pooh diaper bag around...

These bags are cute!!

I was lucky... my mom got me an all black Vera Bradley diaper bag. Don't know what she paid for it... but it was and is wonderful.

Just checked those online and they're super cute too!

I guess I should have checked more the first time around but I went to Babies R Us and got one there, bad mistake

When my SIL set up her baby registry, I saw that she had picked out a blah diaper bag from Babies R Us. I e-mailed her and apologized for criticizing and whatever but to get that bag off of her registry!!! I gave her some examples of what to look for - that there were so many out there... and/but you almost want one that you can use as a purse as well. And her case - it was important because she has carpal tunnel in her arms...

I did get a nasty/blah one that my mom got me as well - but we use that for day care. We fill it up and drop it off every Monday and then bring it back on Friday. That way - I didn't have to bring it in every morning and day care has a place for her diapers, extra clothes, etc., and I don't have to worry about it getting ruined like I would have with the VB bag...

(My sister had a VB bag as well - but hers was red and a different style... so I think they change it up every year...)

Just got mine in the mail today. Gave myself a gift because I had a $100 coupon.

I LOVE it. (It's the one on the top left.) It's roomy with tons of compartments. It can totally double as just a regular bag, which I can bring to work and carry all my stuff in it. Not nearly as pink as it looks online, either. More of a mauve, which goes with everything I own.

Last PG I splurged and bought a Kate Spade bag. It was nice and all, but blue...I got blue because I knew I was having a boy. Well, almost everything I own is in the burgundy/mauve/pink family, so even though I'm having a boy again, mommy needs to match her wardrobe!!



Hugs,
Meg

This bag is PERFECT!!!!

LOVE IT! Oh you're killing me, I didn't know Coach made diaper bags

I guess I'm so out of touch with this thing, I always assumed diaper bags were just ugly and plain diaper bags.

So happy I didn't see this one before because it would have been very tempting to spend the $$$ and hubby would not have been happy with me :p

No reason to be jealous--your bag is super cute! I probably wouldn't have spent the full price...but the coupon made it irresistible Guess that's why they send them, right?

Hugs,
Meg

I had my eye on a Petunia Pickle Bottom bag but I saw some not so good reviews so these may be perfect.

I like to tell my husband I am going to totally splurge and buy a gucci diaper bag but I can't justify it, maybe if I was rich and famous. I won't bring myself to buy a regular gucci bag never mind one that will have poop and puke on it. I do say that I do want to splurge a little and buy a Kate spade one b/c they have some cute ones. You can find them on sale on line or even at the outlets.
I think its important to have one you like just like a regular bag.

Wet bags are very useful for holding dirty clothes, diapers, wipes, etc.

I used cloth diapers and these were awesome for holding the poop, etc.

I even buy them for my friends who are expecting so that they can keep their diaper bags clean.
