I used the Maxpedition Monsoon Gearslinger as my bag.  After six years of constant use it is as good as new and I still use it to take my kid to the park, etc.

I like the freedom of mobility the style gave me, which is going to be essential for you.  You can run comfortably with it, bend over, get your kid in and out of cars seats with out it getting in the way, swing it forward for quick accsess.  Fully loaded it also fits under a an airplane seat.

You will never have enough with you lol...

Had a huge diaper bag which was basically a kid EDC ...

Between diapers, wipes, formula (if he or she are on it) bottles, change of clothes, toys and usually a small blanket because they pick the most inopportune time to sleep...

I always carried some plastic grocery bags for heavy soiled diapers plus a plastic bag for dirty soiled clothes because usually when you in a mission to get stuff done they leak and then you have both dirty and clean clothes to sort through...

Now that my daughter is almost out of diapers my edc bag is suitable because she likes the hurry hurry life and her little toys fit in my bag or pocket

Best of luck with the new one and congrats on being a dad! Best job in the world!!

I know this is an older post, but I'm interested in hearing what the OP decided on. I just had a daughter 7 days ago, so I'm looking for ideas/conversation like Ephie & Steve posted above.

I'm using a Maxped Sitka. Have a couple of small organizers (one stuffed with FAK stuff, another for my electronics/tools), a small nylon bag for dirty clothes, plastic grocery bags for soiled diapers, and I'm still looking for a good, organized way to carry a "diaper change kit."

Thanks!

always carry snacks and something to keep a kid busy

 

The hidden, just-in-case things that are always in our bag (Jujube BFF) is:

spare shirt and shorts, blanket

a sippy, straws and a spoon and fork

a granola bar

minimal, scrapes and cuts, f.a.k.

hand sanitizer

a ziploc bag

a couple disposable diapers

 

diaper change kit (Jujube Be quick) is diapers and wipes in ziploc. i tend to also grab the change pad; wife doesn't. what else could you need? 

 

Honestly you could go minimal, do diaper changes in the car, and not have to carry around a bag.

I ended up putting together a quick, grab n go diaper change kit using a Maxpedition Fatty organizer. A few diapers, some butt paste, change pad, gauze, a ripstop bag (for soiled clothes), wipes & antibacterial hand wipes. Threw in a pen, pad & flashlight, too.

So far, so good. Can throw it in any bag we're carrying, which is usually mine, lol.

My EDC bag is dubbed the "brewery bag". Our 2 yr old is out of diapers during the day so there's only a change of clothes (especially socks) and some wipes. Aside from 2 coloring books in the main compartment, in the smaller compartment we keep and handkerchief,  2 pens, 2 Freakers, 2 small knives, a tactical flashlight and a small first Aid Kit. On the straps there are loops where I keep a S-biner that has a bottle opener (thank you, Sierra Nevada) as well as a Doohickey. We do a lot of picnics, winery's and breweries in SC, NC and VA so everything we have is for convenience. I'm about to add a solar charger to the kit. It'll hang on the bag.

Aside from all of that, keep a water bottle for the kid and yourself and some snack. I normally just pack apples. It's a good, filling snack.

LOTS of wipes (make sure baby can tolerate them; rashes are bad juju) - they'll be used for cleaning literally everything from baby to tables to you...oh yeah, carry an extra shirt or two.

If you like to keep it real light, i suggest that you can use the 5.11 Tactical Vest it has many pockets for baby stuff and your personal stuff you can wear it in the winter and the summer. And they have built vests with backpaxk style also that can be used for traveling with a baby. Good luck and i hope you find what is best for you.
