Ok, number two is on the way (September) and my medium cafe bag will be too small for two... I searched for "diaper bag" and did not find it... Will it be out by the end of March?
By the end of March...no. Pre-order by late March or late April, we hope.
Current Carry: Skookum Dog Citizen Canine prototype, Founder's Briefcase (every day carry), Small Cafe Bag (every day carry), Shop Bags (groceries, extra random stuff), Aeronaut 45 (travel), Synapse 19 (day hikes), Smart Alec (longer day hikes), Skookum Dog Road Duffel (Medium) (travel), Clear Organizer Wallet, Travel Stuff Sacks, Organizer Cubes
Woohoo! Will this be a dedicated diaper bag, or a bag that you can slip the diaper pad into?
Is the co-pilot supposed the be the diaper bag, or are we waiting for something else?
No, the email from the mailing list said, "The diaper bag - the Parental Unit - will be available for pre-order in May or June."
Excellent news. We'll be needing our diaper bag for the twins around the middle of June. Can't wait to see the details.
I'll be first in line!
How do we get on the mailing list so we know when the Parental Unit is available? I'd like to get a look at it.
I'm assuming, based on all the comments in this thread, that it's going to be a shoulder bag or messenger bag? If that's the case, I'll just take back my Brain Bag from my husband or maybe get a Smart Alec.
My son didn't do strollers, so I wore him all the time, and a messenger going across my body didn't work, and a shoulder bag is simply uncomfortable and awkward.
A backpack balances out the parent wearing the child (my husband has even worn backpack on his front while wearing our son on his back!).
We're expecting #2 this fall, we cloth diaper (so we'll be cloth diapering two kids for at least a little while....oy!) which creates some extra bulk, and I need something that would be large enough to handle an entire day's worth of clothes, snacks, diapers, and a few things for me! I love that the Brain Bag can be cinched down if it's not full, but that it gets enormous for a full day's trip.
I'm looking at getting the Side Effect to basically use as my purse - being able to pull that out and either use it as a purse with a shoulder strap or wear it below our favorite carrier (Ergo) on a quick outing seems ideal!!
any news? a hint, maybe? Will the diaper bag be bigger than the Imago? Is it going to be a shoulder bag? Will it have backpack straps? Is it still on the predicted May/June pre-order timeline? I'll confess I'm having a hard time being patient!

Just hoping for an update! It's nearing mid-June! Any hope of the Parental Unit coming out in the next couple months?
These six-day-old babies need a diaper bag. Won't you help, Tom and Darcy?
