    Default Babywearers and nappy bags..

    What sort of bag do you use when wearing bub?
    I've been trying to find a nice "cross body" type of bag to use with my woven wraps but I'm not having much luck finding one I like,or that is big enough to fit a few essentials...currently carrying around a small bag that only has handles and it's getting annoying!

    I love my storksak jamie bag. It has a crossover strap. Very comfy and fits loads but holds its shape. It's the best thing I've bought since having babies

    A backpack if you're doing a front carry, or a Crumpler bag?

    I use a ring sling so I just use my normal handbag. I only carry wipes and a couple nappies. My big bag I leave in the car which contains the extra outfits, blankets etc

    I used a shoulder bag. I made sure it was a nice one too that looked more like a handbag than a nappy bag.

    For short trips I just use a shoulder bag, for days out I take a nana trolley.

    I just use a backpack. Have you looked at Onbags? They are made as babywearing nappy bags. If you can sew you might even be able to make one.

    I used a backpack in my baby wearing days too.
    I found that a satchel or handbag created an annoying uneven distrubtion of weight and the shoulder I had the bag on would ache after a while.

    Only massive downside with the backpack was going in to shops and having to show the bag on the way out. It was a bit awkward wrangling it around the front with baby attached. 10x more annoying if bubs were asleep.

    Thanks ladies ...I had thought of a backpack but I'm going to have to start putting bub on my back at the shops very soon...she's driving me nuts trying to turn around and look at everything,plus she's getting in the way too....will prob just end up with a shoulder type bag I suppose..
    Tildy,I was actually looking at the Onbag site yesterday ...they look great,unfortunately I can't sew,and they are out of my price range for now...
