I am not a heavy carrier. I hate carrying a purse around! Right now I use a small wristlet, which is big enough to hold my phone and all the essentials in a 3.5" x 7", lightweight package.
I'd LOVE to have a similarly lightweight and compact diaper bag for day traveling. Do you have any recommendations for a diaper bag that looks/weighs like a smallish or average purse? How do you make the size work?

I carry everything in my diaper bag so I don't have good advice. We also cloth diaper so those are bulky and we need something big to fit them in. Have you thought about just using a regular purse or tote bag?

I don't have any advice cause I'm a "you never know" diaper bag carrier so I carry lots of stuff with me. But I do know lots of moms who just carry a regular purse as their purse/diaper bag so that might work for you?

Maybe a crossbody diaper bag like this one?
I carry a larger diaper bag but usually carry a crossbody purse.

How do you plan to do the day travel, with a stroller, babywearing or car? Can you keep a separate changing pod with a pad, diapers and wipes separate from your bag? I do this, keep it under the stroller and another in the back of the car. This allows me to pack a very small bag.
