Looking for the BEST Diaper Bag

Anyone just love their diaper bag? I am looking for something that has lots of compartments and just works! I have an Eddie Bauer Weekender bag, it's alright and I have a Carters suede diaper bag. They serve their purpose, but I want something that is just great. I have 2 little boys, 3.5 yo and 1.5 yo and I have another baby on the way. I want something that will serve all 3! Thanks for any recommendations!

I have been looking at the Hanna Andersson potty training "unders" and some other higher end brands. What should I look for in training undewear? Which ones worked best for you, and how many did you buy when you started out potty...

Buying Pants for Skinny Kids

So my two-year-old is third percentile for weight, 15th for height. Needless to say she still wears many 12-18 month old clothes. The problem I am having is jeans. If they fit the waist they are too short, if they fit the length they fall off. She does not like button pants so I wanted to buy her elastic waste denim jeans, but then there is not adjustability. Is this a common problem? Anyone found a brand that fits well on their skinny kid? Seriously we may be stuck wearing stretchy pants and dresses. My kid can't wear pants, even...

Train Travel with 3 Kids

Hi Mamas! Is it crazy to think I could survive a 21 hour train trip with my 3 children? My husband will be unable to go with us so it will be just me and my 8, 6 and 2 year old. My girls are a little on the loud side and the 2 year old gets cranky when tired. I have never traveled by train and have no idea what to expect. All of the sleeper cars are booked for the dates we are traveling! Would the coach seats be good enough? I need advice for those who have done this before.
