Cast Your Votes

Alrighty, people.

I have tried not to bore you with the details of this pregnancy, but there is a now a vital decision to be made and so far, of the five people I’ve surveyed, I have gotten no consensus.

Thus I need your help.

Which diaper bag should I buy? (Yes, I save the really important questions for this here blog).



And yes, you have to choose one. (I already sound like a mother, don’t I?)

    And I love the details about your pregnancy, so keep them coming..

    I am still firmly in the grey camp. And clearly, because I am me, my vote should carry extra weight.

    Definitely, definitely grey

    I think the main question is…will your husband carry either one around in public? If he has a preference of the two I'd let him pick. πŸ™‚

    Black. You learn quickly as a parent that dark colors don't show dirt and wear as fast, so you buy EVERYTHING in dark colors. Car seats are a great example — people with cute pink and white ones only end up with something looking dingy and worn after a couple weeks. Stupid.

    Although you can't really go wrong with either. Very cute.

    Ooh, I love the grey one. Of course, try laying them both next to some of your favorite clothes and then decide, I'd say.

    Now get a diaper bag backpack instead and enjoy the world of hands free. You will need them for other things. baby, car seat, store bags, chasing after child etc etc.

    or better yet: both!!

  • Reply Jenae June 24, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    Grey! Grey! When I first saw black I thought that was the answer but then I scrolled down. The green is just so…happy. And that is what I imagine that you need in a diaper bag. "Ugh another nasty diaper… you're crying for your binkie again?… Shhh.. have a snack. That is the mother of all boogers!" but then all of this turns into "Dang. That is one cute and happy bag."


  • Reply craftyashley June 24, 2010 at 8:16 pm

    Grey all the way! Because if you wear navy blue the black one would clash bigtime. Grey and khaki are good versatile colors for bags.

  • Reply Alison Stewart June 24, 2010 at 8:57 pm

    Both- Black for winter…gray for summer! πŸ™‚

  • Reply Shanon June 24, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    I always just used the diaper bag that the hospital sent home with the baby (do they still do that?) I finally figured out with the last baby that I could have a cute diaper bag. So, I say get them both just because you are so smart to figure out with the first baby instead of the last that a diaper bag does not have to say Enfamil on it.

    Yes, definitely grey. (But either one is so much cuter than my first diaper bag that I can't see where you could go wrong no matter what the final vote is.)

  • Reply emandtrev June 24, 2010 at 9:37 pm

    Holy heck, I'm not THAT late to the party, am I?! Apparently so! I love them both, really. I can see why it is hard to reach a consensus. If I have to choose just one, my vote would have to be for the black. My eye was drawn to that one first.

    Black! That is adorable! (But I like the gray, too) But yes, black, go with black.

  • Reply Jodi June 24, 2010 at 11:18 pm

    Are you sure it can't be both? They make me want to have a child just so I can carry one around. Hmmm…

    Personally, I would probably choose the black. Just because.

    I vote "grey" (I suppose there's some grey somewhere in that bag o' fun colors)

    The images weren't showing up on Google Reader on iGoogle, so I was laughing at your labels when I came to your blog and saw the bags you were labeling as "black" and "grey" πŸ˜‰
