This is great for running errands! I actually barely use my diaper bag anymore because I just throw 3 or 4 diapers in there and there are pockets for diaper rash cream or an extra outfit. Then I just throw the whole "changing station" in my purse and head out the door! Or I can just throw it in the basket on the stroller and I don't have to worry about the big ol' diaper bag! Seems a bit pricey, but it's so worth it! I had another off brand and it was so much more bulky! This one is so compact!
