    Default I need a new handbag!

    My bag is getting so worn and old now, plus I still need to carry around pull-ups and wipes - just in case, along with snacks, work items etc. and it's getting too squeeze! Does anyone have a handbag they love and can recommend? I realised just how fussy I am when I was searching for one yesterday!

    Sub. My beautiful nappy bag has just about had it, looking to downsize to a handbag like you described.

    I had a mimco turnlock zip top when I only had one baby it was perfect sized and now sits in my wardrobe waiting to be used again lol. Anyway I love anything mimco. Very durable and some big ones especially the totes, matches anything too

    I got a kate hill nappy bag in the sales and I am in love!

    I initially refused to get another nappy bag after hating my first one with dd1 but this won me over.

    Doesn't look like a nappy bag, has so much space with lots of pockets, but they are not hidden so you can easily see and access everything, change mat, removable Zipper pouch, everything!

    So much room without being ginormous or daggy. Wish I bought it years ago. Will happily have my toddler's, baby and my stuff and I can continue to use it for years. Apparently the longevity is great.

    Eta: my childless girlfriend swears by kate hill normal handbags too (childless)

    I've never had luck with Kate Hill bags lasting. Mine have always fallen apart

    They are very exxy I know. I got mine on eBay though half the price and still brand new. Otherwise I am the same and never had much luck with handbags lasting so figured by the time I bought 5 cheaper ones I was close to buying a nice one. What about Kardashian range or Wayne cooper they're quite nice!

    Skip Kate Hill. I have had two and they've both fallen apart within 6 months. The bags I've had that have lasted the longest are just whatever I've picked up from Target, Kmart, Big W and the like.

    Oroton or Guess....
    Love them. Usually go to DFO or factory outlet to get them cheaper.
