Having a little one often means saying goodbye to your usual bag that are there to hold just your essentials, and hello to something bigger and roomier, full of diapers and baby necessities. However, that doesn’t mean having to give up on style. There are options available that combine good looks with functionality, perfect for taking you from day to night when needed.
Le Sportsac Ryan Baby Tote, S$270
With an adjustable and detachable shoulder strap, numerous pockets, a matching baby changing pad, as well as two exterior side pockets for bottles, there’s nothing that this bag doesn’t have for mothers. Most importantly, it comes with interior stroller straps with plastic clips – that way, you won’t have to worry about lugging a huge bag around with a baby if you find yourself alone with the stroller.
Available at LeSportsac, ION Orchard #B1-12A.
Marc Jacobs The Canvas Sling, S$720
You’ll never get bored with this bag as you can carry it three different ways with its adjustable strap — hobo, crossbody or sling bag style. There’s a leather version, but we prefer the canvas version. It’s made from 100% cotton, making it easier to clean when it gets dirty (something that it inevitable with kids) and the embellishments and patches give it a fun and casual look.
HATCH (anti) Diaper Bag, US$298
This chic looking tote allows you to just pack what you need and carry what you want. It comes with three waterproof and wipe-ready clutches — ‘THIS’, ‘THAT’, and ‘THE OTHER — to keep both yours and baby’s things organised and comes with a matching changing mat. We love that you can customise it and make it stand out with a pop of colour and a stylish monogram tassel. There are even dedicated pockets for your phone and little ones’ bottles. What more can a mama ask for!
For those who love something that catches your eye from afar, a Jujube bag is what you are looking for — think ergonomically healthy, brightly coloured diaper bags with all the compartments and knick knacks a mum could need, including one for cameras and a memory foam changing mat. If colour isn’t your thing, yet the functionality of the Jujube appeals to you, look into the Be Right Back Legacy Diaper Bag series. At Mummyfique, we like the Imperial Princess print for its whimsical flower power. Designed with the professional woman in mind, this black and white backpack is perfect for the working, fashion conscious mama.
