The humble nappy bag has come an incredibly long way since the days of gawdy saddlebags. Modern day mothers have a gob-smacking array of totes to choose from, which have a life well beyond that of simply carrying nappies. Being the helpful bunch that we are at Babyology, we’ve herded together our pick of some of the best nappy bags on the market – but be warned, it’s almost impossible to buy just one.
Is there any mother-to-be that hasn’t lusted after every single bag in the Il Tutto range? The latest cabs off the rank are the Brigitte (above) and Georgia Hobo (at the top of the post), which we revealed to you in February. It’s hard to go past the delicious colours, quality and functionality of the Il Tutto range. The Brigitte is $249, while the Georgia Hobo is $459.
Leather and nappy bags go hand-in-hand – it’s durable, wipes clean and looks sleek. Tribe uses premium grade, soft-milled cowhide leather, so the nappy bags feel just as luxurious as they look. The beautiful Orchard Tote hides a treasure trove of baby-related necessities, and is available directly from Tribe for $SGD549, which delivers to Australia.
If you’re more of the stand-out-from-the-crowd type, Petunia Pickle Bottom’s range of whimsical nappy bags are perfection. And there’s bound to be a nappy bag to suit your style, whether it’s clutch, backpack or shoulder bag. The touring tote above is $174.95.
Roomy and bright bags are the mainstay for Soon. A pop of colour, or a sparkle of metallic give these large and luxurious bags a cutting-edge style, while maintaining all the various functions needed from a nappy bag. The totes are $159.95.
The distinctive, striking patterns of Dwell Studio were just made to grace a nappy bag, don’t you think? The Madison Nappy Bag is a visual treat with those tell-tale Dwell chocolate dots. It’s $145 from The Baby Closet.
The Work With Me Baby bag is incredibly slick – the caramel-coloured leather is classic and stylish. The size is perfectly generous, and its rugged good looks will see it used as an overnight bag, or every day bag beyond its days as a nappy-lugger. It’s $359 from Monique.
