You know, I've had this Marc by Marc Jacobs baby bag for 4 years now. I do still love it, for its many compartments, lightweight fabric and waterproof cover!
It's served me really well and everything is still in really good condition, except for the zip that's gone but which just lets me chuck even more stuff in there. I even got a couple of compliments on it in HK recently! Seriously, it's so "malleable"! Unfortunately, that is also its down side - since it can hold so much, I tend to overload it and this is causing some serious posture problems. I feel like I am forever standing lopsided.
When we went to Disneyland, Dwayne and I decided to use his Deuter bag instead. I mean, how good is the Deuter too, right? We could both take turns carrying it (and for once he didn't fuss carrying the baby bag because he won't ever carry the MJ on his arm) and it definitely made me feel balanced, posture-wise.
SO... I want to get a backpack for a baby bag too! Now that Alexa doesn't need as many diaper and outfit changes when we go out, I feel like I can afford to downsize a little (Lord, please don't play a cruel joke on me once I've made my decision!!!). I still bring an outfit change for Miranda too, wipes, scented diaper baggies, sanitizer, burp cloths (not used for burping anymore but for runny noses and what have you), and always plenty of snacks.
I am wondering if I'm really ready for this change so I rounded up some backpacks I found on Shopbop and ASOS. I don't really know what style I want to go for (the MJ seemed to go with everything!) - I even went onto ASOS men, because their bags seemed roomier. I already know that white one on the bottom right is not gonna make the cut. Too pretty and delicate looking. We are talking tough wear and tear after all! But I just had to put it there.
