Diaper Bag Dilemma

I really should have seen this coming.
But no. I have been cruising along, blissfully unaware of the upcoming decisions that are going to have to be made.
I have a Diaper Bag Dilemma.
As in, I haven't picked any out that I like.

And here's where I should have seen it coming....
(and probably where I lose some readers...please don't hate me.)

I don't like purses.

I have owned 3 my entire adult life.
I used the same one all 4 years of high school.
I don't like carrying them.
I leave them everywhere.
I have literally had my purse mailed to me from different states.
(yes, that's plural because it has unfortunately happened more than once.)

So here I am, 33 weeks pregnant and all of a sudden I realize that even though I have said things like
"Oh, this will be handy to keep in the diaper bag."
The bag in question...has yet to be found...because I wasn't looking.

I did manage to fine one that I thought was cute.

It obviously won't say "Hunter" cause that isn't Pipsqueak's name, but you get the idea.

And here is the point where I come to you begging for help.
If you could find it in your dear, sweet hearts to resist the urge to stone me, run away screaming and de-follow me for not liking purses, just long enough to suggest some cute diaper bags, I will be eternally grateful.

Just think, you're saving me from being the chick that throws all my baby stuff in a plastic grocery bag.

And we all know that plastic grocery bags are bad, so by helping me, you're helping the enviroment!

It's a win-win.


P.S. I love shoes....if that makes you feel any better.

Check out the Petunia Picklebottom Diapter bags...LOVE THEM!! I am not pregnant yet but have already picked out which one I am getting I have heard great things about them too, from my friends that have them and used them!

I am not a huge purse person either but I refuse to carry a not cute diaper bag as well.
I agree with Jessica...I ordered one of the Petunia bags and I LOVE it!!! Check them out! And then just came out with tons of new styles/designs, they are so awesome!

ditto these lovely ladies..i have NO plans for babes any time soon...but i've checked out the petunia website, and have already warned the hubs that's what we're getting, no matter the cost.

So the bag that we mysteriously got I highly recommend!! It doesn't look diaper bag like and it works well for both of us and holds a lot!! The only downside is that it's expensive but after we're done hauling baby crap around it will work for a messenger bag since it's got space for a laptop and stuff!

I have many different diaper bags, but the one I really like is by Skip Hop. It's like a satchel, and you can adjust the straps so they're long enough to fit over stroller handles...a big plus! I also got mine monogrammed with my baby's name on it. They're very durable too! Good luck searching!

I haven't even begun to think about diaper bags, but my cousin recently had a baby and she got a really cute messenger bag like this one from target. (Mostly so her hubby would carry it!) I think her's was green though, so it was still really cute.

I never really use diaper bags back then, just oversized totes :) Try Etsy if you haven't yet. Lots of cool handmade ones. Cheers!

Stopping by from the UBP. This post made me laugh...I'm not really a purse person either. But, I could never really find a diaper bag that I I just used an oversized purse. There are so many new/improved designs now...I'm sure you will find one! Good luck.
