Oh Good! I need this!
My favorite essential included would be the changing pad. You never know when or where you're going to have to change a diaper. Changing pads are the best!
Changing pad is my essential--sometimes there is unexpected disaster and you need something you can wipe off!
Oh my lord, I love that insulated bottle holder. That would be great for sippy cups in the summertime!
My essentials? Right now, the baby and the wipes. I NEED a diaper bag like this - stylish and functional. I'm using the freebie from the hospital still and I look like a geek! Please randomly select me!
The whole thing! My husband and I are expecting our first, and he's feeling a little worried that he won't get as much time with baby as he'd like (he's in medical school and is BUSY!). I know a cute daddy bag like the grey one would get him excited for hikes and bikerides and special time with baby at the state park near our house!
I love the accessory case. What a great place to store bandaides, medicines, extra money, etc.
Diapers! Cream! Snacks!
I like the accessory bag. It's great to be able to pull out the small stuff in one bundle.
The insulated bottle holder is great for the hot summer months. I'd love to win this!
What a great idea! And I wouldn't have to worry about the bottle beverage spilling on the laptop--plus I always wanted to be a chic mommy!
awesome! I love the changing pad and the insulated bottle holder!
I like that it's for men too.
I love the accessories bag and the way it sits on the back! More room to carry baby on my hip, without balancing a bag on the other side!
Definately a changing pad-public bathrooms are so gross and often don't have even a changing table, let alone anything else (like those disposable changing mats). I love the Titanium one-a color a man could carry!!
Fortunately, I do not have to carry a diaper bag any more but I do need a new laptop bag. I love the colors of these. Sign me up!
Essential for me is the baby nail clippers. Multi-functional in many ways.
I love the fact it is a slingback. Those bags are so cool and easy to carry. This would be great for my toddler and baby!!!!! Also, the husband might like it too!
Those are so cool!
oops- forgot to say essential--- the changing pad! I use them for everything!
My favorite essential is the slingback style itself. It's so comfortable, doesn't fall off narrow shoulders, and my husband will wear it!
I LOVE that it is a slingback! I bought myself one (but not as cute) and my husband stole it as "his" man-diaper-bag. I would love to have one for my very own!
I love the insulated drink holder, this would be great for cold sippy cups!
I like the essentials bag as well, but the insulated drink holder is a close second. I also really like the sling-style--comfy! To sum it up, I like it all! :-)
Besides having a diaper bag that I can use for my laptop too, I am in desperate need of the changing pad and wipes case. When we finished potty training, I gave away our diapering accessories, not realizing that my munchkin could still use the set. We've been going through wipes for messy clean-up. Would love the changing pad for him to stand on while we do clothing changes after he's rolled in the mud.

The best accessory: changing pad/wipes case! woo hoo!!!! and I can carry my laptop and look cute too!!!!!
...the insulated drink holder
I love the whole thing. What a great idea and it looks good too.
One can never have enough bags! The changing pad is a MUST!
whats not to like about this!? I love the blueberry keylime! The bottle/cup holder is a must in warm weather, keeps milk fresh..and I love the changing pad!
The accesory bag, definately. I am always loosing items at the bottom of my diaper bag. That and the wipes case. One CANNOT have too many of those.
The insulated bottle holder--for this breastfeeding mom's own water bottle!
love the purple grape one - then my dh won't try and use it! :-) I like the slingback bag itself! hmm... maybe I retract the statement about dh not carrying the bag - I want dh's help w/ the baby bag! :-) better go w/ the blueberry keylime or frosted titanium
The forehead thermometer. I've thought those things were super cool since I was a little kid and I imagine it would be more convenient to use on the go than your other options… luckily, my three year old has only had one fever so we haven't really had to explore the world of rectal thermometers. We'll see how the new baby does, he's due July 30.
The accessory case....because I'm always digging through my diaper bag trying to find my lipstick, or keys, or cell phone...it's like a mini-purse. So great!
Water and sunscreen.
I love the slingback style of this bag! So easy to hold everything and the colors are great!
I like the accesory bag... I love the whole thing!!
Love the insulated bottle/drink carrier. What a blessing in the hot summer months! (Keeps the spills from everything else.)
My favorite essential is the changing pad - I have two bottoms to change!! What a cool bag!
I love the changing pad and the accessory case, both of those are something I would use all the time. And I LOVE the colors of these bags - they are great!
The insulated drink carrier would be my must have part.
forgot to post my email address, sorry about that!
the insulated bottle holder will be very useful!
I'm loving the fact that you can wear it on your back. I carry a small backpack as my daughters diaperbag right now. Its just so much easier to lug and keeps your arms free.
I like the bottle holder. It will keep drinks cold or hot and keep spills contained. I hate bottles that leak all over the inside of your bag.
Would love, love, love it. I have gotten way too many crappy diaper bags. - Carrie / email@example.com
I love the matching bottle/drink holder! cute colors!
I must say I adore this product! How nice to have a bag that does more than one thing at a time! :) I like the accessory case on this bag...to have everything within reach (if I remember to be organized of course) -- what a dream!
My must-have essential is the hand sanitizer. Where would we be without the wonderful invention of "clean in a bottle"? Nary a germ goes by without getting zapped by my hand sanitizer. So, O Yikes, I thank you for thoughtfully including my must-have essential in your ready-to-go diaper & laptop bag. Keeping my fingers crossed to win you!
Has to be a changing pad and a wipe holder.
The must have essential has to be the diaper changing pad. My 4 year old niece is autistic and is still in diapers. It has been very hard to potty train her. It would be nice to carry her diapers and wipes in a cool modern bag instead of a Disney princess backpack :)
oops - i got so excited, I forgot my email address in case I win ;)
I love the Wipes holder. The one from my last baby broke after opening and closing too many times. Plus I am also someone who used the diaper bag the hospital gave us, so I would love to be able to not be embarressed by my diaper bag everywhere we go.

The wipes holder is my fav included essetial... Never know when you may need a wipe (except for the obvious)!
This has got to be the BEST diaper bag ever invented! The "essentials" kit is GENIUS! My favorite item would have to be the nail clippers-babies always have those sharp little nails, and I never remember to pack clippers!
I love the bottle/drink cooler especially for summer. I also LOVE the colors! Great giveaway.

the changing pad + baby wipe case are the tops! firstname.lastname@example.org
My favourite of the "essentials" is the sunblock - I always seem to be buying more of that.
I love the brushed aluminum key ring! Great giveaway! Thanks!
Definitely the changing pad and wipes for me. I would ADORE this!
Changing pad and wipes are essential! Love the blue and keylime colors.
laptop storage!?! in a diaper bag? can it be true?
Easy - it's hands down the REUSABLE wipes case. Less trash = green!
What a great looking bag, love the purple one! I'm on bag number 5 now. Having 3 kids I need all the storage I can get. And if I could find my keys easily on a fancy ring, well...
I love that it comes with everything you need to clean up diaper malfunctions - and the yikes onesie would be the perfect thing to change baby into after a big blowout!
I love the Tangerine Colored Bag. The Bag itself and the diaper wipe case are the must-haves for me. I'm pretty basic with what I carry! Would love to win. :-)
My favorite part, besides the bag itself would be the accessory case for all of those snackies we bring around with us!
I'm drooling over the bag itself. My fav essential is the case, it would make a nice first aid kit.
It's an awesome looking bag. I like the velcro strap.
These bag sets are too cute. I love the blue & green combo and even more I love the fact that I could use this well after my kids are out of diapers.
Wipes, wipes, and more wipes!
These bags are awesome and the separate insulated bottle bag makes it even better.
Changing pad and accessory bag are essential! I'm still using the black icky bag from the hospital, so I hope I win. :-)
I have no idea since I will be a first-time father.
I love this one!! The green and blue one is so cute! I love the drink carrier. I would absolutely love to be able to make a hot cup of tea to take with us on trips!
Definitely the hand sanitizer. Would this OCD mom be expected to say any different? ;)
I love these bags! My favorite is the green and blue one. I think the idea of everything in one convenient spot with a little room for things that mom might need (cell phone, wallet, tylenol!!!!) is a great idea. With another baby on the way soon I love the hands free design of this bag.
I'm sure this bag will become essential if I'm picked!
I think the insulated drink holder is the best part.
I love the green and blue one. Very cute!
So cute and perfect!
My essential accessory would have to be the water bottle. My son is always craving water. What a cool way to pack for a toddler without using the traditional diaper bag.
Diaper cream & nail clippers - great for all kinds of boo-boos, which both me and mini-me seem to get.
Great looking bag. sunblock is my essential!
What a cute bag. It's great that it includes all the essentials. My favorite is the accessory case. My stuff (wallet, lipgloss etc) is alway getting lost in ourbag.
Love the sunblock and overall design makes so much sense for active moms and dads!
I like the changing pad. email@example.com
I love the coordinating wipe holder. My current bag is pretty stylish, but my wipes don't coordinate!
Very cute. I never have nail clippers handy when I need them! Great idea.
Wipes! I use them for everything!
Brilliant. The clippers are so ideal. When I've got a free moment to even THINK about clipping the kiddos' nails, we're out somewhere.
For me, definitely te insulated drink holder. That's a must for hot summer days.
Diaper changing pad... love the colors.
I think the inconspicuousness of the laptop section is great! I also love the sling back style, esp since I have twins and a 3 yo boy!
