I have a 3month old DS and once he has outgrown his capsule I plan to wear him more when out and about in our Manduca.
So my question is, do you ladies carry a bag or use a backpack? I don't carry a lot but DS is in MCN's so we do have a bit of stuff.
So what do you find works for you?

Silly question for the baby wearers...

If she's on my front and we'll be gone all day I use a backpack or take my trusty nana trolley. If she's on my back then the trolley or a shoulder bag. I just try to travel light which is easier now that she's older. Nana trolleys are great!
Messenger style bags are good too.

I just put my stuff in the nappy bag and carry it over my shoulder, it's not too heavy.

I usually have the car close by, so I leave the nappy bag in the car and just carry my wallet. Sorry, not very helpful, thinking about it I would probably just take my nappy bag with that days essentials (nappies & wipes).

Yeah I guess the nappy bag it is, I just hate carrying a bag! I have enjoyed being able to use the pram bag.
GreenMamma how do you go with a backpack and the front carrier? Is it comfy?

Backpack if I need a lot of stuff (with an ergo), and a messenger bag or some other bag that can go across my shoulder if I only need a little. The backpack + ergo is comfy, unless I'm carrying shopping bags or something as well... then I find that my back gets rather sore if I'm out for long.
I'm needing to rethink though as my bub's nearly 8 months, and she doesn't really appreciate being on my front if she's not tired. Some kind of bum-bag type thing might be good.

I find backpack and front carry fine, as PP said as long as it's not too much heavy stuff. I don't drive and do a lot of walking/public transporting, so my nana trolley gets a huge workout.
I'm also considering something bum-bagish as I mostly wear her on my back now, but am trying to think of a way that it's not just a straight up bum-bag. Because my Mum wears one of those and I can't go there.

I did the same as mummaoj, just kept everything in the car and went back if a change was needed.
I hate carrying a bag, the one thing I loved about the pram was not having too, but preferred to babywear

I wear bubs on the front and have a light back pack or just a regular bag if i go shopping that sits in the trolley

Ok, will try both, I have a lightweight backpack I can use but my baby bag is has a long strap so I can wear it across body, will just take out all the rubbish I don't need so that it's not so heavy and I think I'll just leave the stuff in the car whenever possible.
Thanks for all the input, I know it's a stupid question, was just trying to figure out the best way of doing things from the wisdom of all of you ladies
