AKA an excuse to show off my sexy sexy baby bag...
So some of you have been asking after news of the "sexy sexy baby bag" that I was looking to buy. Well I did and I couldn't be happier! It is made by a small San Francisco company called Rickshaw Bagworks. They primarily make messenger bags for cyclists and the baby bag is a modification of one of those. The bulk of the bag is 100% recycled from post-consumer plastic bottles. It is incredibly well made, solid and hard-wearing in all the right places.
The main bag is their standard messenger bag, so it has pockets for gadgets, notebooks etc. However instead of the laptop insert it has a couple of 'baby specific' inserts - A super soft change pad, a two pocket square insert that fits nappies in one side and a couple of clothes changes in the other. On the side of the bag you can see the attachable gadget pocket for phones and such. Not shown are the insert for insulating food/drink, the handy stroller straps and the drink holder that clips to the other side of the bag. The strap is super comfy and really easy to adjust.
At the moment it is packed for the hospital (along with our bag and a list of things to grab as we leave, like pillows and phones..)
I think I have all the bases covered... A couple of different outfits of various sizes and warmth levels (got to love the crabby striped one!), socks, mittens, blankets, hats, nappies, wipes and who knows what else! My Girl Guide 'Be Prepared' training may have kicked in a little here...
I'll be sure to keep you posted on when we actually need to use the bag!
