As soon as most pregnant ladies begin shopping for mummyhood essentials- the hunt for a fabulous bag is on.

When it comes to baby bags- there are so many ranges and choices- it may become overwhelming- especially for a first time mum who has so many items on her pregnancy to do- list.

Before you head to a store- check out Mummy’s Life & Style’s top 6 picks- ranging from budget to designer- that are currently on the market.

JJ Cole Caprice Baby Bag

Searching for a chic baby bag? We’ve found one for you. The JJ Cole Caprice offers designer looks- without the matching price tag. It comes crafted with three carrying options, spacious interior, lots of compartments and also features insulated side bottle pockets and adjustable shoulder straps. The ten pockets inside and out are ever-so handy and overall we think this gorgeous bag is lovely to tote around.

RRP: $99.95 Stockists: Baby Bunting and Toys ‘R’ Us W: www.jjcolecollections.com



Marie Chantal Nest Bag

The new Nest bag by Marie Chantal is roomy without being bulky and we are a fan of the lovely natural tones that will definitely match any outfit. It comes in a leather and canvas version and it’s designed to store all the essentials a new mother needs.

RRP: $895 Stockists: Marie Chantal W: www.mariechantal.com


Mimco Lucid Baby Bag 

Featuring the signature Mimco turn-lock hardware in rose gold colouring, this popular baby bag is now available in a vibrant red tone. Constructed from durable nylon, it has both top handles and a comfortable shoulder strap. Twin front pockets make for easy access storage and it also comes in shades of black, nude and ink blue.

Target Ryco Chevron Tote Nursery Bag 

Great value makes this a standout and it’s available at a quarter of the price of many other baby bags on the market. If you don’t want to spend a lot, definitely check this one out- as it features a modern design with large carry handles, huge main compartment and an insulated bottle holder. This bag is ideal for quick trips to the shops, keeping bottles and food warm or cool and storing all essentials for your baby’s days out.

 RRP: $50 Stockists: Target stores W: www.target.com.au


Pink Lining In The Mews Not So Plain Jane 

This adorable bag is available in a range of perky prints and not only does it look good, it also has substance. This fun baby bag features two large elasticated pockets for nappies, detachable and adjustable shoulder straps, two thermo insulated bottle holders, water resistant lining, plus a change mat and zip wet bag.

RRP: $128 Stockists: www.thestorknest.com.au W: www.pinklining.com


Prada Nylon Baby Bag

This classic Prada baby bag is one of the priciest on the market and favoured amongst celebrities- including Jessica Alba and Kourtey Kardashian. And if you are wondering what you get for your money, this tote comes with a changing pad, bottle cover and has an adjustable shoulder strap so the bag can be worn over your shoulder or tote style. There are also lots of pockets and we think the fact that it’s a Prada bag is the biggest drawing card.
