    Default Nappy bag

    Hi everyone,

    Do you use a nappy bag as a handbag, or do you need to carry a nappy bag AND a handbag?

    I don't know the answer and this will influence my decision about what size to buy etc. There are two that I really like and I don't mind spending the money if it will be my 'handbag' for the next 5 years of so (planning on two kids).

    Here is what I normally carry in my handbag: wallet, phone, keys, makeup bag, umbrella, diary. Will all that fit into a nappy bag too, or are they only designed to carry nappies, bottles, etc?

    Thank you!

    DD is 2.5, and since she was born I have used her nappy bag as a handbag (unless I am out without her - in which case I take my normal handbag).

    All of those things would fit into most nappy bags. It's just a question of finding the right type of one for you.

    I have a JuJuBe one (available on Amazon) and love it.

    Default Nappy bag

    I never used my nappy bag unless we were going for a full day or overnight. I just used a gorgeous big handbag that fit everything in it. It was more me!

    Default Nappy bag

    I use a nappy bag up until they are about 8/9 months... I think I stop around the time I don't carry spare clothing and the whole house with me.

    I have an expensive nappy bag and if we go for no 3 I'll consider getting a new mimco or oroton bag.. But if I go for the mimco one o won't get their baby bag I'll get a big standard bag that I can use afterwards as well.

    Default Re: Nappy bag

    I have a seperate handbag. If I'm going somewhere without using the pram, I will throw a nappy, wipes and drink/snacks in my handbag.

    Default Nappy bag

    I have the mimco nappy bag as it looks like an oversized handbag and I'm planning on using it as my hand bag for the next few years while baby is small.

    Oh - I'll add - the reason I use a nappy bag rather than my handbag is that I love my handbag sooo much and I don't want it smelling of baby wipes! I'd rather put things like a banana, wipes, drinks bottles, etc. in a nappy bag and then have a zip compartment for my stuff than have baby stuff (which might smell/ be messy) in my handbag.

    I have a Vanchi bag. It looks like a handbag but is a nappy bag. I love it!
