Honestly, I always just used the black enfamil or similac bag that they give you at the hospital. I started out with the expensive ones, but the black (hides spit up, lol), plastic (easy to wipe) bags made the most sense to me. I only used a diaper bag for the first year and then moved on to a mini-backpack anyway, so things they outgrow so quickly just aren't worth the cost to me.

I fell in "lust" with a petunia pickle bottom and 3 people went in on one together (for my shower). It was so beautiful! Coral colored with embroidery. I believe it was over $200. Well, the zipper broke after 6 weeks and I couldn't even get the stains off it. I switched over to a canvas bag that I could easily throw in the laundry. An expensive "purse".

I purchased a ppb bag at a charity event, but would not suggest buying one retail. It was very pretty and I was able to get coffee stains out but it wasn't really practical. The space inside was somewhat awkward, and I filled it easily so it wasn't always easy to find things.
I have a few diaper bags and the one I used most was a simple backpack.
Good luck and congrats on the new baby!

I have always looooved them but didn't get one bc the material was silky and I knew I would ruin it. I just had my second baby and saw they have them ina 'plastic' material and its awesome. Its so roomy and I love the changing pad thsts attached in there :)

I bought one because it was really beautiful but in the end it did not meet my needs. Mostly because I like to have a 'mother's area' and the velcro was noisy.
Instead I went with a Ju Ju Be Between. I was able to buy a matching wallet and I am super happy with this combination. They have cute fabrics but are really practical with what a mother needs.

those bags are beautiful but pricy and not so durable. I snagged a Roxy carry on/toiletry bag. It was about $75 but it was leather outside and plastic inside. there were a acouple pockets but I liked no pockets. I used a leftover make up bag for the small little things. It worked awesome!
