Q: I am expecting my first child and am looking for a diaper bag that both my husband and I will feel comfortable using. I would also like something that is grown up and does not look like hiking gear (as most dad-geared diaper bags do). I came across the bag in the picture which fits my style but not my budget and transforms from a laptop bag to a diaper bag. This got me wondering if it would be practical to transform a laptop bag or other business case into a diaper bag. Has anyone done this, and if so, what are your tips? On the other hand, are the built-in features (bottle pockets, etc) in a diaper bag just too important to bypass?

Editor: I never had a diaper bag and thought a regular bag was just fine, but let's see what readers think. Did you use a regular bag as a diaper bag and make it work? Did you use a diaper bag and love the pockets and other features?
