The closer we get to our holiday the more I get overwhelmed by the logistics of it all. Four small children under six, 5 big suitcases, 5 pieces of hand luggage, a pram, a camera and a laptop bag… I am already tired just typing it out! Surprisingly enough baby Sybbie will be the easiest to look after because I have found the perfect nappy bag from JJ Cole Collections:
US label JJ Cole Collections knows what it is like to go out with a young family so they have created a fantastic range of baby bags that are both beautiful and practical. There are lots of different styles and prints to choose from but with our holiday in mind I decided on the very spacious JJ Cole Backpack (RRP $149.95) in Black Floret. Measuring 38cm x38cm x 13cm in size it will easily hold all the must-have items for our 27 hour trip and the red details will match our pram perfectly.
Inside you’ll find four deep, elasticised pockets to keep your nappies, wipes, padded change mat (included), bottles and other baby goodies organised with lots of extra space in the middle for a change of clothes, snacks, toys and more. On the outside the bag is fitted with two zipped front pockets and two handy side pockets so you can keep little must haves eg. dummies, phone and car keys within hands reach.
Don’t be fooled by the term ‘backpack’ though, the JJ Cole ‘Backpack’ actually has three different carrying positions and can be worn as a backpack and shoulder/ messenger bag or it can be attached to your pram in a flash with the clever no-slip grips. This makes it an extremely versatile bag that is easy to carry wherever you go. When not in use the backpack straps can be neatly tucked away in the special back pocket.
I am so pleased with my choice, there is so much storage space and the bag is very light weight. I am not usually a fan of backpacks but with all our travelling I knew it would be the best choice and it looks really lovely (so much better than I expected from a backpack). I love how easy it is swap between the different carrying positions because I hate wasting time adjusting buckles and straps. The JJ Cole Backpack is sure to get a great workout next month, keep an eye out for it in our holiday snaps.
JJ Cole Collections nappy bags and changing clutches are available at Baby Bunting and Toys’R’Us stores across Australia.
