For many mums, gone are the days when you could throw your credit card, pocket mirror and lipstick into a clutch and run out the door. Now we’ve got to carry all but the kitchen sink in our bags to be prepared for anything that our young ones might throw at us (who knew such little people could need so much stuff!?) But, with that in mind, having to carry about a big bag full of nappies, wet wipes, bibs and so on, shouldn’t mean we have to compromise on style. So, here’s a list of our favourite stylish-but-sensible baby bags for this season.
Baby Bags Flatlay

1. For the fashion follower
Claudine and Ash – The Havana bag
Claudine and Ash’s stunning set of leather baby- bags are just to die for! Not only do these bags look like they’re hot off the catwalk, but they’re incredibly practical too. Made of durable pebble-textured leather, this spacious bag comes with two bottle holders, elasticated compartments, a padded black changing mat and a nifty detachable strap bag for you to keep all of your own essentials. The bag is finished with some very on-trend rose-gold accents and is available in a number of colours – our favourite is the taupe!

2. For the celebrity lover
Storksak – The Lucinda
Favoured by celebs such as Angelina Jolie and Jessica Alba, this Storksak bag is a must have! The unique tulip shape of the tote is fresh from the brand’s AW collection, and, although it is deceptively small, it hides a super organized interior. Perhaps the best feature of this bag is its thermo-insulated bottle holder, which keeps liquids warm or cool for hours – perfect for our extreme Aussie seasons! An added bonus to this beautiful bag is that it comes with built in stroller clips so you can quickly get on the go without having to fiddle about with your pram.

3. For the trendy girls
Petunia Picklebottom – The boxy backpack
This bag is the cool kid of bags. It’s the kind of bag that makes you ask yourself, am I trendy enough for this? Is this what the kids are wearing these days? The answer to both of those questions is yes! What we love about this bag is just how different it is, it’s a modern interpretation on an old classic that just looks so sophisticated yet so on trend. Its practical too, packed with nifty compartments as well as a detachable changing mat. But if you’re not ready to embrace the backpack just yet, you can switch this bag up and use as a cross body bag or hang it on your stroller.

4. For the boho babe
Budu Baby Bag
Get ready to channel your inner hippy, the Budu baby bag is all the rage right now! With its luxurious tan leather design and cream accessories, this bag is both beautiful and practical, packed with compartments and pockets to make organization a breeze! The lining of this bag is removable, perfect for mopping up spills and crumbs, as well as for when you want to use the bag sans-baby. Go totally boho and buy Budu’s matching baby satchel as an alternative to a stroller.

5. For the simple but stylish
Mimco – Lucid
Take one look at this chic Mimco bag and it’s hard to believe that it’s designed to carry around nappies and wet wipes, most of us would gladly use this as our own day-to-day handbag! The practical synthetic fabric, multiple pockets and comfortable shoulder strap, teamed with the effortless design and colour options of this bag means you don’t have to compromise on style for sensibility.
