    Sounds like congratulations are in order? But don't let him slack off, a husband should ALWAYS treat his wife like the Queen of the World!

I'm branching out to the Clear Organizer Pouches and the Packing Cubes, which I think will be equally revolutionary.
    Yeah, I have pre-convinced myself of the value of the packing cubes...so I ordered a small and a medium, figuring I could use them in whatever luggage I used.

    And the guilty part is I also ordered myself a Side Effect ( I wanted it in Olive, but it was backordered) in Indigo so I would have something in that color before it was gone forever!

    @jeffmac, I don't know if congratulations are the right word - "good luck!" might be better since we're expecting twin boys at the end of April. I've been hovering over the "Parental Unit" thread, hoping that a TB diaper bag will be offered soon. Now I'm wondering if one of the medium-size carryons would be a decent alternative that would become a nice travel bag for me later. Another forum member mentioned using packing cubes to organize kidstuff inside a diaper bag - pure genius. We'll probably have a separate cooler for bottles/food since very few diaper bags have insulated areas for more than 1 bottle.

    I kinda want something in Indigo, too, before it's all gone. I have my eye on an Indigo/Solar Synapse.

    @janine well how about both good luck AND congrats! Twins 8-) WOW!

    It has been a bit since I have had one in diapers (my youngest is 13) but the one thing I remember is not wanting to fumble with a lot of zippers and fuss to get in and out of the bag. When you need a diaper and a wipe you need it NOW! That will go twice as much for you!

    I wonder if a Swift with an extra stuff sack might not be a bad direction to go...

    I have a Swift! And some extra stuff sacks! Great! No! That means I won't have to buy any more bags! Boooo, lousy idea.

    I was thinking that a Shop Bag might work. It's Swift-like in open tote-iness, but has the two handy pockets on the side. I pre-ordered a small one in Ultraviolet, so I'll be able to compare and pack a few test runs before the kids arrive so that I get an idea of what can be smooshed into which bags.

    I wonder if a Small or Large Shop Bag would be a good solution?

    The Tall Stuff Sacks could hold just about anything babies need and they can be color coded for each twin.

    The best thing is that Dyneema is easily washable!

    Janine it looks like both backpack and I are willing to encourage you to get a new bag so a Shop Bag it shall be!

    You better order one of each and (maybe) send one back.

    Tell the hubby it will keep your feet from swelling!

    Using a swift as a diaper bag

    My wife and I have been using a swift with clear quarter packing cubes and the yarn stuff sack in various configurations as the diaper bag for our 10-month old boy for nearly 10 months. It has worked very well. You can attach the bags with long key straps to keep them from being left behind by accident.

    The only complaint is that it gets heavy to carry with no shoulder strap after a while. Especially when packed for a long day. My wife liked it so much we had to buy a second one for her to use as a purse.

    As for coolers or insulated pockets what we do for formula (breast feeding also, but having to supplement) is that we simply carry the bottles with measured amounts of water and the dry formula and a scoop separately. Then mix it up as needed and no need to refrigerate. Our son does not seem to care much about it being warm or room temp, or even kind of cold, most of the time. We of course heat it if possible, but when out and about, he doesn't seem to care.

    How about "TB Anticipation by Proxy Syndrome"? Or maybe "TB Anticipation Sympathy Syndrome"?
