Christmas Countdown – Day 24

And then it was December 24, Christmas Eve and the final day of our Christmas Countdown giveaway. I hope you have loved discovering all those fabulous gifts and awesome brands. We’re wrapping the event up in style with this gorgeous JJ Cole Collections prize with festive red details:

JJ Cole Backpack

If you are planning to visit family for Christmas or enjoy some fun days out over the holidays with the kids you will love the spacious JJ Cole Backpack (RRP $149.95). Measuring 38cm x38cm x 13cm in size it will easily hold all your baby must-haves, as well as a bunch of Christmas gifts!

JJ Cole Backpack InsideInside 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 items eg. dummies, phone and car keys within hand’s reach.

JJ Cole Backpack Black Floret BlackDon’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.

JJ Cole Collections nappy bags and changing clutches are available at Baby Bunting and Toys’R’Us stores across Australia.

Welcome Baby Giveaway – Day 10

Of course we could not possibly run a Welcome Baby Giveaway without adding a stylish nappy bag to the massive prize pool, after all every new mum needs something to carry to around all those adorable baby goodies in. I think this brand new JJ Cole Collections number totally fits the bill and it’s perfect for parents of beautiful Spring babies:

The tote-style Camber Baby Bag (RRP $89.95) is the ideal pick for trendy mamas on the go who want a convenient, spacious bag that is both pretty and practical.

Camber Citrus BreezeAvailable in a range of gorgeous prints and colours the Camber will be your go-to bag this season, just toss in your must-haves and head out for a wonderful day outside with your precious bundle(s). Wear it over your shoulder with the padded shoulder strap, go traditional and carry it by the two tote straps or enjoy hands-free and clip your Camber to your pram using the free no-slip Grips attachments.

Camber Black GoldLike a real tote should the Camber offers plenty of storage space, both inside and out. One of my favourite features is the large outside pocket, away from nappy creams and baby food it’s the perfect slot for a book or even your iPad. The handy bottle pockets on either end allow for easy access to a much needed drink while the two zip pockets keep car keys, your phone, a dummy or your lip gloss within hand’s reach. As a sweet bonus you’ll find a cute matching change mat inside to make surprise nappy changes as easy and hygienic as possible.

JJ Cole Collections nappy bags and changing clutches are available at Baby Bunting and Toys’R’Us stores across Australia.

Nappies and wipes, spare clothes and a blanket, bottles and food… individually all these baby bag essentials don’t weigh much but it all adds up. The result is a nappy bag heavy enough to hurt your back, not exactly something any new mum is looking forward to!

Linden Blue Iris

JJ Cole Collections loves making life easier and more stylish for busy parents and now they are making it a little lighter too. Weighing in at less than 500 grams the brand-new ‘Linden’ nappy bag would have to be classed as one of the lightest baby bags around.

Linden Blue Iris OpenThe ‘Linden’ baby bag (RRP $89.95) may be ultra light in weight but there is definitely nothing small about its storage capacity, it’s surprisingly roomy with plenty of handy pockets on the inside and outside to keep your bag contents organised. The zip opens open all the way giving you a clear and instant view of what’s inside. As always this JJ Cole Collections bag comes with a stack of handy bonuses like free grips™ stroller attachments, a padded shoulder strap and coordinating wipeable changing pad.

Linden HeatheredFeaturing a convenient, easy-to-clean laminated canvas outer (all designs except for the Heathered) the Linden bag is the ultimate practical bag for modern parents on-the-go, no more worrying about dirty marks and sticky fingers! Personally I love all the gorgeous fresh spring prints, particularly the pretty Blue Iris, but in case you are looking for a neutral, dad-friendly look you can’t go past the classic grey Heathered design.

JJ Cole Collections nappy bags and changing clutches are available at Baby Bunting and Toys’R’Us stores across Australia.

Every time I wear this lovely Soon Maternity dress I receive the sweetest comments, this week’s favourite remark was that it looked glorious on me. It’s not a dress for the shy and secret because your bump is very much on show but I am savouring these moments while I still can, before we know it I’ll be missing my blessed round shape!

I wore the Sienna dress the day we told the inlaws that a new grandchild was on the way (when my bump was cute and tiny) and now in my last trimester it is still comfortable and flattering on my huge baby belly. It truly is a dress that grows with you throughout your pregnancy and it hugs (and stretches) in all the right places. As this style is currently on sale (reduced by 50%!) you have to be a little lucky with your sizes but I promise you it is an excellent buy that’s worth every dollar.

Big Baby Shower – Day 24

At JJ Cole Collections they understand that every mum is different so they have designed a wide range of stylish baby bags in lots of different colours and sizes. Compact or spacious, contemporary or sporty, shoulder bag, backpack or weekender, there is a perfect JJ Cole bag to suit everyone.

If you’re one of those parents who rather brings too much than forget something or squish everything into a tight space you will love the roomy and super practical Satchel (RRP $120) baby bag by JJ Cole Collections.

JJ Cole Satchel range

The beautiful Satchel bag can be worn by hand or over the shoulder using the comfortable tote handles, it can also be worn over the shoulder/across the body with the removable, padded shoulder strap or you can conveniently attach the bag to your pram by attaching the included non-slip stroller grips to your handle bars. Made from strong and sturdy canvas the bag is extremely durable and easy to clean, simple wipe clean and go.

JJ Cole SatchelI just love the wide array of pockets on the in- and outside of the Satchel, helping you to stay organised and saving you time when you are looking for something specific. After all, a crying baby doesn’t want to wait 5 minutes for a dummy and a poo-explosion requires instant cleaning up. Thanks to the full length top zip you can fully open your bag and immediately see what’s inside, no more digging in the dark!

The Satchel is currently available 3 stylish designs: Stone Arbour, Navy Arbour and Aspen Arbour, which one is your favourite?

JJ Cole Collections nappy bags and changing clutches are available at Baby Bunting and Toys’R’Us stores across Australia.

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:

JJ Cole Backpack Black Floret

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.

JJ Cole Backpack InsideInside 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.

JJ Cole Backpack Black Floret BlackDon’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.
