I am like a babywearing addict haha! I mostly used woven wraps. Same idea as a stretchy Moby wrap, but stretchy wraps don't last long (not comfortably anyway). Woven is so much more supportive (you could carry an adult!) I have 5 woven wraps in varying sizes (Natibaby bamboo/cotton green diamonds 2, Didymos India 3 (silk/cotton), Flamingo Indio 4, Kokadi Ela im Wunderland 6, Ellevill Paisley Liberty 6 (bamboo/cotton) and a Girasol Snow Rainbow ring sling. I have a Beco Butterfly II but that is more DH's carrier. This new baby will have to be worn almost all day while I chase an 18 month old so I need lots of options!
I bought a galaxy grey one (because I LOVE IT) and it turned out to be a fake. :( Lucky the woman took it back. We ended up getting an Evening in Innsbruck Petunia Picklebottom one...this one:

I haven't actually worn DD yet. We got it a month before I got PG and we knew we were ttc and didn't want her to get used to me carrying her. DH carried her a few times. SO cute. She's only 27 lbs (and was less in the summer). Here's DH and K:
Excuse their weird clothes...we were camping. :P
I love that pattern too! I try not to carry my big ones too much anymore cause I want them to be used to walking by the time LO arrives. Luckily DD is good at it but we are working on DS walking and following directions. Cause he is quite the boy and runs off when he can. Lol
Well I am obsessed with PPB so I love the print!!!!!!
Don't get me started on diaper bags now.......LOL.
HA HA HA! I have 3 PPB bags....so perhaps I get what you're saying. ;)

Then for our anniversary last Sept DH got me the clutch that matches our ergo. I use it as a purse but it has a changing pad I took out:
Then someone listed a mid sized back on a used site and I so wanted that too. LOL. Ya, I need to stop, I know. It's called a 'Touring Tote' and the print is Morning in Machu Picchu. This is it:
So ya, I think I'm covered for diaper bags. HA HA!
OMG how funny. I have been dreaming about this diaper bag since i saw it in june. I want one sooo sooo bad! I may treat myself because of this bed rest. It just seems so much better organized than mine and i love the fold out changing pad! I want it... nowish.

are they the most comphy carriers? I may get one if its better than the baby bjorn... that didnt work at all for us. Tho the money may be an issue
Kia, that bag you posted is the Boxy Backpack like my first bag. I LOVE it and the fold out change pad is great. It also comes out, so you can wash it and stuff. One thing i'd be careful with is which finish you get. There are a couple. All the ones I have are the glazed finish. They are plastic-y and very durable. I used my boxy backpack for about 2 years and it looks fairly new. The other finish...the satiny one, will rub on everything, catch on the rivets on your pants and snag. It will NOT look new after 2 years.
As for the print to get...I say get something you like. You are carrying the bag, not the baby...so while my bags are girly, if I have a boy I'll still use it.
good point.... hmmm. i am a girly girl but i know Dh likes that our now is black so he doesn't feel weird carrying it... hmmm.
Just One You Tonal Tote Diaper Bag : Target
that is what i have. It gets disorganized very easily because its basicly one big area, a few pockets but not easily organized. I wonder if there would be a knockoff that is like the one you have because i love love love it but idk if i can spend that much... maybe i can talk DH into it because I deserve it....
Love those diaper bags. That's one thing I haven't let myself get into even though I live not too far from the BabySteals warehouse and could score a good deal on one. I haves few biggish purses so I've jut used those in the past and probably will again. But yes I'm still jealous, PPB has such cute stuff!
You live near the BabySteals warehouse? Oh man, that would be dangerous!!!!!
DH carries my girly boxy backpack. He always says "my baby's a girl, this is her diaper bag"...no biggie...but, if we have a boy...LOL. THEN we'll see!
