I own 2
I had this bag with my daughter and just bought a new one for my unborn son. I have other diaper bags as well but this is my favorite. It is not huge but large enough for daily outings. It is comfortable to carry and washes well. I like the outside pockets for keys and a small ID case. The inside pockets hold diaper sacks and cream, small toys, binkies, onesies, bibs, socks, etc. The bottom is.perfect for a bag of wipes and stacking diapers. I can also fit a change of clothes and blanket in the main compartment. I also have the Miller and Get Carried Away totes for longer trips and the pool /beach. Both of these totes make excellent diaper bags as well but they are much larger.

Well worth the money!
I have this baby bag in the pattern Imperial Toile that my sweet hubby bought me, along with all of the matching accessories, about a week before our little girl was born. She is now 3 years old and let me tell you, this bag has held up. It has been on countless trips with us and has endured many spills. I have washed it several times and it still looks brand-new. I just switched to the Mom's Day Out since my daughter is now potty-trained and I don't need to carry as much. We are trying for another baby and I plan to use the baby bag again... Or maybe I will buy it in one of the newer colors. :) good job once again, VB!

It really IS more than just a baby bag ...
This bag is the perfect accompaniment to my Grand Traveler (Happy Snails). And it's the perfect size to carry all my personal items (hairspray, shampoo/conditioner, hair dryer/flat iron, cosmetics, etc). Because it is lined for easy cleaning, I don't have to worry about spills. I now have more room in my Grand Traveler for my clothes. Thank you Vera!

Not Just for Babies !
My babies have grown up but I loved the organization of this bag. I bought it because it has lots of outside pockets in abundance ! It's also a very smart shape. Initially, I bought Symphony in Hue. Found it so easy to organize and access things, and got so many compliments on it that I ordered another one for spring in Ribbons. This bag holds so much that it doubles as a tote when out shopping, if I'm buying small to mid-size items like cosmetics, tops etc. The three pockets under the magnetic flap hold my lip stains and gloss, comb, and hand cream, receipts etc. The generous outside zip pocket holds my iphone and keys. The inside pockets are for several small leather pouches, tissues and sunglasses. I've used the side pockets for a small umbrella (as needed) and/or a water bottle. The main compartment is large and holds my not very tiny (: wallet, an ipad (if carrying it) etc. with tons of room to spare for, as I said, doubling as a tote. In winter I've put my large cashmere scarf and gloves in it. This is the best purse I've had in ages for being able to easily carry, organize and access things. And it looks great, even full !! Now if Vera Bradley only had it in Midnight Blues ! Are you reading this, VB ? (:

Pretty, NOT practical
My aunt splurged on this bag for me and I wish I could return it. Diaper bags need lots of room, multiple working pockets, divided sections and easy access to things. This bag has pockets, but they are either too narrow, too thin, don't expand or filling them encroaches on the inside room of the bag. The main cavity of the bag is just that; a cavity. There are no separations or compartments which make other baby bags superior. To get anything out of it, you have to take everything out of a bag. The changing pad, which is standard in diaper bags takes up so much room that it is not worth having. It needs it's own compartment. The straps are also a problem, they don't adjust at all which makes it impossible to strap onto a stroller. I bought a better, cheaper diaper bag and will probably use this one for the gym, as others have suggested.

Too small, but works as a gym bag
I bought this bag to use for the gym because I liked the idea of a plastic liner. It will fit a pair of size 8.5 trainers, exercise clothes, water bottle, protein shake, deodorant, travel size shower accessories, and a hairbrush, but it is FULL. All of the little pockets on the outside could be helpful if they had an elastic/stretchy opening. As it is, items put in the outside pocket reduce the amount of space available in the main pocket. It works for the gym basics, but I think I'll stick to my duffle bag.

My Everything Bag
This was my first Vera bag ever.. with that said, I really do rely on reviews before I buy products, especially online. This bag is wonderful! I use it as a work bag, baby bag and purse. It has so many pockets inside and out- the outside ones are very deep so I don't have to worry about losing my keys or work badge when I cram the stuff into the pockets when I'm in a hurry. I am pretty rough on my bags and this thing still looks new and has held up well. I've owned for about 5 or 6 months and have used nothing but this bag on a daily basis. I use the back large zip up pocket section for paper work and coupons. I get compliments on it frequently and would definitely recommend to any busy mom...working mom or stay-at-home :)

Overall I love this bag but I am very upset that the pockets tore so easily. I am not hard on the bag, it is just the stitching came undone. I am going to take it into a store and see if they can exchange it for me. Hopefully so considering I have been using it for only two months. :(

Vera does it right again!
I love Vera! I was introduced to Vera a while back and purchased this bag in safar sunset. It was not only gorgeous but sturdy and fit all my needs. As a young mother of two toddlers I not only have to carry a ton but I wanted my bag that was now my purse to look cute...This bag has it all. I would highly recommend.

Love this Baby Bag!
I just love this baby bag! I have been using it ever since my daughter was born and it is perfect! Lots of room for wipes, diapers, changing pad, wallet, toys, pacificers, and more! Love the special clip too...I use it to clip to my car keys which always seem to make their way to the bottom of the bag otherwise. Now I always know where to find them! Pockets everywhere and zip closure which keeps my daughter who is now almost 2 out of my bag :) Changing pad has held up great and washes up great in the washer/dryer. Now that we are outgrowing the need for this much room I am downsizing to the Mom's Day Out bag but I feel like I will still get a lot of use out of this bag for travel and other purposes.
