View Full Version : recommendations for diaper bag with shoulder strap?

10-02-2003, 11:44 AM
I have officially gone nuts! I have tried every diaper bag out there including my new messenger bag which I don't like either. I don't like the fact that I have to move the flap to get inside. Don't know why I didn't consider that when I bought it LAST WEEK!

So...I need a bag that has the following:
- 1 shoulder strap
- outer pocket for my stuff
- outer pockets for sippy cups/bottles
- inner pockets
- is sturdy enough that the inside stays open when you are looking for items.

Any suggestions?? Please????

This is the bag that I have, and I really like it. It is very lightweight when empty, has a good long shoulder strap, the center compartment has a zipper flap (so it opens wide) and the front opens wide too. The front compartment is semi-rigid, so you won't squish everything in it. And the two bottle pockets are big enough for Avent bottles or sippy cups.


We've been using it for the better part of a year now, and it looks nearly new.

What about the Land's End Do It All Diaper Bag?

And here's their new version of the same bag. I'm waiting to hear a review about it since I know a few moms here were going to get it, but I'm this close to ordering it for myself!

*Edited to add that I just saw the review on the new version of the bag that was posted!! Oops - missed that before I posted this!*

How about the Combi Traditional bag? It fits all your requirements and is a nice bag. Personally, I find it a bit large for everyday, but I know a lot of people that use it for everyday. It is similar in size to the LE Do it All.

I have the Combi Traditional, too, and it is a very nice bag. But I also find it big for everyday use, although if you had two children or are a heavy packer, you'd probably love it!

I have it, not used yet since baby isn't born yet, trying to decide if I should keep it or return it for the LE new Do It All bag, i'd use this bag when I sleep at my parents, not everyday, what do u think, which bag is better ???

I have not seen the new Do It All in person, but be aware it does NOT have one long strap like the previous models.
