Ladies everywhere have always needed a helping hand with the number of items they carry around. It becomes even tougher when we need to carry baby essentials and have everything we will possibly need at hand.
They say diamonds are a woman’s best friend, but we think a handy bag is the true woman’s bestie! We carry them everywhere, they help us hold our important things, and we find the occasional extra cash in there when we really need it ?
Not any bag qualifies to be a mummy bag tho, they must have very specific criteria in order for them to be shortlisted. If you are not sure what makes a bag a mummy bag, we are here to help. Here are the most important qualities a bag should have to pass the mummy test:
Size – A mummy bag needs to have enough space for everything she might need from bobby pins to milk bottles and a change of clothes. The trick is to find a bag that has enough space but that doesn’t take up much space. At the end of the day, mummies don’t want the burden of dragging around a bag twice their size… they gotta carry the baby as well!
Pockets – Outside and Inside! Pockets are essential because they store the items we need a lot or that we would need easy access to. This includes tissue, wipes, pacifiers, keys, wallet, quick snack (for mummy or the baby, they both might run out of fuel ?!).
Easy to clean – After a long day out or a couple of days of use, we know that the bag will need a good clean inside and out. A bag that can be easily cleaned without worrying about the fabric getting ruined or losing its quality is a bag that passes the test.
Stylish – Because it doesn’t hurt to be both practical and chic ??♀! Look for bags that complete your look on most days, we would recommend neutral shades that have a pop of colour to make the bag stand out. Avoid bulky bags, don’t compromise your stylish mummy look for practicality when you can have both.
