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.

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.
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.

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.
