It’s in the bag. At least that’s what I say. When you’re expecting a new baby, your world is expanding even if the economy isn’t. Of course maternity clothes are a necessity but our biggest seller is that one essential accessory that no woman can resist – and in this case, it’s super-practical. What is this magical thing no new mom can do without? Diaper bags. And not just any diaper bag, the Petunia Pickle Bottom. Based in San Francisco, PPB is known for its exuberant colours and designs. And these delicious bags disguise all those important compartments for wipes, pads, lotions and nappies – into an “I-want-that-bag” kind of fashion statement. I don’t need to tell Irish girls that there is no substitute for a great handbag. And Petunia Picklebottom diaper bags are one of those key must-have accessories for new mommies!
If bold design isn’t really your thing and you’re more of traditional girl at heart then let me introduce you to the Storksak Elizabeth collection. The Elizabeth bag is crafted from washed, toughened leather with brass hardware. This bag is trendy, highly durable and functional – just what you would expect from a great diaper bag.
So, what’s the difference between all of these ‘must-haves’?! Let’s get real. With the expense of a new baby you’ll want a diaper bag that will see you through the newborn and toddler stage and still look great.
The Petunia Pickle Bottom Boxy Backpacks - great size for toting around all of the newborn essentials. Very roomy interior with great storage. Inside is fully cleanable. Being hands free is always a bonus when getting used to a new little one, and carrying the bag on your back with baby on your front will keep you nicely balanced! I highly recommend the stroller clips with this bag – they are purchased separately with this particular style of diaper bag.
The Petunia Pickle Bottom Touring Tote – perfect for over an the shoulder diaper bag. So incredibly easy to carry, it has everything you need for going out with baby, but it’s not as roomy as the boxy backpack so while you’ll fit all of the basic essentials, you’ll struggle to fit the ‘what ifs’! It’s great for when little one is a few months old and you don’t feel like carrying the entire contents of baby’s closet around with you! Comes equipped with those great stroller clips I mentioned above.
The Cake Collection – practical decadence! What more can I say? The Society Satchel is huge and will carry everything a new mom needs. It’s a real show-stopper and new moms who’ve been gifted it or indulged themselves have told Haute Mama that they get as many comments about the bag as they do the baby! The Cosmopolitan Carryall is a throwback to 50′s elegance. It’s standalone beauty is matched by it’s functionality. The Cross Clutch is ideal for quick trips out and about with baby. The Cake Collection bags makes for a gorgeous, yet practical investment piece – bet you never imagined hearing that about a diaper bag!
