Well It was all about finding the right one that worked for me.
When we were registering for BabyStybs, Adam was very involved. We both wanted practical things that could work for a boy or a girl, and for any future kids down the line. I spent hours on Amazon searching for the best deals, with the best reviews, in neutral colors, and Adam would sit with me and go over the available choices and 'approve' the final choice.
In all of this searching we found the DadGear diaper bag. It was what Adam wanted if he was ever going to carry a diaper bag: black, messenger style, and other features that made it 'cooler' than a big old tote bag.
The problem with this manly bag? It was a bit heavy and bulky for me. Also, once you got the diapers/ bottles in their pockets, the 'big' open pocket couldn't really hold anything. Adam liked it, but really, he only carried the diaper bag maybe twice.
So I switched to my bag.
Before we purchased the Dad Gear bag, I was out shopping with my mom at the Carter's store- looking for gender neutral clothes, but that's another story- and found a bag more my style on clearance.

In came option 3. A Scout tote.

So that is what we are using now. It will probably change whenever baby #2 comes along, and I'm OK with that. I will probably want something with more organizing possibilities that is hands free (like the awesome hostess only gift from 31 that my friend Jen has). Until then, I will use the small tote, and keep the other backups in Kate's closet.
