The Not So Diaper Bag

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.
