Most of the time my usual handbag - i travel light. For a full day out with all 3 kids an onbag, but it's too big for everyday use imo

Back pack. Or my usual handbag it just popping out for coffee. I travel light and don't do change bags because the temptation to stuff it to the gills would be too much and they're very expensive, often a bit ugly or twee and I am a tight arse

I had/have an ergo carrier, which has a compartment for a nappy and wipe.
as handbag I use(d) a small fine picard leather bagpack. just big enough for keys money book bottle of water.

I have a small backpack for front carrying and a selection of cross-body bags when baby is on my back.

I used to use a bag with one long strap worn diagonally across the body (I think they're called messenger style?) or a normal backpack type bag.

You can buy a bag called an onbag which is made specifically to incorporate baby slings and has a handle which you can unfasten so you can wear it loads of different ways. There's also a pattern to download on the website if you're thrifty and prefer to make your own smile

Just that really?
I've got a stretchy wrap for DC2 and hope to progress to SSC. Just wondered what everyone uses for carrying baby stuff around when using a sling/carrier?
