    I used a nappy bag until about 9 months and then swapped to little backpack with DS1. With DS2 I needed both nappy bag and back pack to hold all their crap. I went to two little backpacks at about 9 months. Now they both share the one little backpack when we go out. Personally I like the back pack better for access etc but love the dividers and pockets of a nappy bag. I just wish I had bought a different design, not the messenger style.

    i have used both, for a newborn i think a nappy bag is easier for bottles etc(even if you breastfeed you may have bottles of expressed milk).
    some back packs dont have anywhere to put bottles.
    ds is 27months old so i currently use either a thomas the tank engine backpack or a lightning mcqueen backpack.
    back packs are easier for older children but also they are easier on your back as you can evenly distribute the weight over both shoulders whereas my baby bag only has one strap and gets quite heavy.

    not exactly sure what i am going to use when baby #2 arrives in 3 months time???
