Our 10 favourite stylish and practical nappy bags

Finding the perfect nappy bag can be a daunting task. I mean, how are you supposed to hold all that stuff in one bag without sacrificing style, comfort, and portability? Luckily for you, we’ve done the hard work so you don’t have to.


You may be asking, “hold up, do I even need a nappy bag?” Well, the answer is yes and no. Trust us, you’re definitely going to need somewhere to put the nappies, wet wipes, rash cream, extra clothes, burp cloths, bibs, toys, dummies, breastfeeding essentials (if applicable), you get the gist. However, as long as a bag hits the main criteria, it doesn’t have to be a “nappy bag,” per se. A good nappy bag just has to be very spacious, include lots of pockets and compartments, have handles and a shoulder strap, and ideally be water-resistant or washable for those inevitable “oopsie!” moments. So if you’ve got a bag that hits all of those and you don’t mind getting it a bit messy, great! If not, or if you’re unsure, keep on reading.

As for design, we can’t lie – we’re getting a bit bored of traditional nappy bags. Where’s the personality, the style, the colour? It’s like when you become a parent, personal style becomes replaced with parent style. It’s okay in a pinch, but let’s see if we can’t do a bit better.

Madbaggs Weekender Bag – Black Protea


$185

Neutral colours with fun prints is the way to go for bags that go with every outfit, and it’s why we went with this one. As a bonus, it’s handmade right here in Australia, features pockets on pockets, and has a bright pink and orange floral interior. There’s two other fun variations if you’re looking for something a bit more outwardly colourful.
