Diaper bags are a girls best friend and worst enemy! They hold SO MUCH useful stuff, and they get weighted down with unnecessary odds and ends. Back when my older two were babies I had a traditional diaper bag. It was black. It had a bottle holder (never used) had changing pads and pockets galore.

When I had Claire I fell IN love with the Jujube Be Prepared. I was going to be working part time and taking her in with me, so I wanted a diaper bag that I could pack for the whole day. It was PERFECT for that. I still use the diaper bag a lot. At least weekly for church and then if we are doing a long day out I will pack it up for that. Having a big diaper bag wasn’t great for going and running errands. I ended up getting a Coach diaper bag that was more of a tote and perfect for running around with.
Right around the time I found out I was pregnant with Oliver, I wanted to have some autonomy for myself and stopped carrying a diaper bag around. I was back to using my beloved purses and keeping diapers and wipes in the car. Claire had moved to the stage where she didn’t need as much and I could keep a snack in my purse easily.
