Revisiting the Diaper Bag Insert
Hi and Happy 4th! I did some homework and came upon this old thread:
I know that a diaper bag insert is in the works for the Lux, but please correct me if I'm wrong - will in only be suitable for the Lux? If so, it may have limited appeal for moms like me who have 2 in dipes. It appears that the Lux is more of a tote-style, where top access may be limited and the depth of the bag may mean items sink to the bottom or are lost...
Would you all consider another version for messenger bags? Tom got it right in regards to an insulated bottle holder (maybe one which velcroed off), but a section for wipes, hand-sanitizer, diapers, and thin changing pad and another section for food products would be ideal. Perhaps there could be "modules" involved, where the base insert can be re-configured to meet individual needs.
The open top of the messenger, "stuffability" factor, and the fact that it stands up on it's own has a great appeal to most parents. I know much has been made about baby backpacks, shoulder bags, etc., but remember that there is a contingent (like us!) who wants to use our current messengers and not spend money on bags we may not use after the kids are out of diapers. And I would easily spend between $50-$80 for this - considering I still get to use bags I own and the additional flexibility of inserting the diaper bag insert into my other bags.
For the record, I'm part of numerous parenting boards and there are people who spend upwards of $100 on diaper bags. And not just one! Almost all of the folks on these boards own at least one messenger bag (mainly for travel) - durable, functional, dads can carry them. But they just aren't organized enough :rolleyes:
Anyway, any input would be appreciated. I could even help "advertise" it for free on a few boards :p !
