Leather bag big enough for both baby and my stuff

I know this is the second "bag" thread today so not sure this will get any replies
However if anyone is reading and has any thoughts...
With 2 babies under 2 years and a very busy work and personal life I have found myself shoving things into any old bag big enough including random spare nappies, baby snacks and my own stuff (purse keys) etc in order to get us all out of the door on time so to speak. Decided I need a proper bag and to be more organised and would like to get something in the sales, and this is the short wishlist if any such thing exists:
- leather and reasonably nice looking but a hardwearing (washable?) lining (is this possible)
- lots of pockets but not "tacked on" to the outside (i.e. if there are external zip pockets they should be flush to the bag itself otherwise too bulky)
- big enough for my things (I dont carry loads of make up etc but I do carry purse, keys phone a small a5 notebook chequebook) and essential baby things like 2 nappies and apack of wipes and a few small clothes and snacks.
- if at all possible a popper style "open" - in other words not a zip so i can dive into it easily.

having typed all that i realise this might be too much information / too picky but if anyone has any thoughts i would be really interested to hear

I got one in Clarks yesterday called "Mime Act" for exactly this purpose. Not sure if it fits all your criteria, but they had a few options on their website. Several in the sale too!

Not leather but I just bought this, I have the same requirements as you i.e. big enough to carry my crap plus stuff for 2 under 2. Gorgeous colour.

I also got this which is nice but is a zipper and won't fit over your shoulder (it's going back for me) but is big enough to carry all my stuff.

I've got one similar to this by Ness - actually think I prefer this one! Mine is beautifully lined with lots of internal pockets.

I've got a lin and leo baby changing bag -

Doesn't match all of your criteria but its a fab bag.

Brilliant thanks for all the ideas which have given me a lot of food for thought. Some really lovely bags on the links you put up......

I bought this the other day and it is HUGE. It is a perfect size for all of the crap stuff I carry around with 2 children AND it holds my laptop.
