Enough space and pockets that I don't need my handbag, and pretty enough that it seems like it IS my handbag!!

Easy wipe fabric in fashionable design and colour, but has all the compartments and accessories for both babies and mums on the move.

Being able to wipe vomit and poop off it without ruining it ;p

Great quality, loads of practicality like pockets and easy cleaning, while still looking fantastic enough to be something you will use every day.

The functionality of a down to earth Nappy Bag with the style of a designer handbag. Something that makes me feel like a yummy mummy instead of a poop & wee slave ;-)

A great baby bag doesn't look like a baby bag, is easy to clean and can carried around by your partner as well

It needs to be able to fit all the essentials for bubs and mum, plus look good too!!

Fits over the handle of the pram, or over the body so it can be used one handed while wiping poo from so many places.

Easy to clean glamourous, rock chick bag. Roomy pockets, a waterproof changemat and a super cute monster teddy, makes for a perfectly stylish nappybag.

A gorgeous bag that fits all I need for toddler and baby, both still in nappies would save me, from going insane almost daily.

Needs to be in neutral colours to be versatile with your own wardrobe. It also needs to hold as much as possible without being bulky.

#18 EllenD

Posted 11 April 2012 - 02:41 PM

Oh for a bag of compact appearance, designed with an "Undetectable Extension Charm" (à la Hermione's bag in Harry Potter) such that it holds everything and more.

A stylish bag and you wear it proudly. Fits everything that baby and parents need, easy to clean, sturdy, and lots of compartments.

A bag so gorgeous that your friends keep commenting on it and so practical that you continue using long after you require a parenting bag!

#21 Blossom73

Posted 11 April 2012 - 04:27 PM

Easy to clean (she says after having an entire meal of pureed sweet potato and lentils spill in my current bag), and easy to find things in!

#22 bubmakes3

Posted 11 April 2012 - 04:41 PM

An interior like a tardis - so all the 'kid/baby stuff' is easily and inconspicously accomodated and exterior like the fab-ist (thats a technical term tongue.gif ) designer bag you could imagine - something akin to the Nico Tote by Il Tutto I think!

#23 libracat

Posted 11 April 2012 - 04:42 PM

It looks glamorous enough to not clash with my work or "going out" clothes while travelling to drop off or pick up from care.

“What makes a baby bag stylish AND functional?”
Being able to walk down the street with the bag over my shoulder and no one even suspect that I am a mother carrying a nappy bag while knowing it has all the space, compartments and durability to fulfill all my parenting needs.
