Big Baby Shower – Day 10

Yesterday we talked about going out for a quick walk with a new bub with minimal gear, but we all know that on some days and outings you do want to take more than just the basics. Don’t worry, there are other options than huge boring, black backpacks. Here’s how to bring ‘the bulk’ without it looking bulky and without losing your sense of style.

Calypso Raffle

‘Calypso Satchel’ by gr8x

The spacious Calypso Satchel by Australian label gr8x is a gorgeous baby bag with a convenient double zip around top flap, allowing you to easily see inside and find what you are looking for. No more endless feeling around in the dark hoping to dig up the item you need, we don’t have time for that! Two zipped front pockets will you keep your car keys, phone or lipgloss safe and within hand’s reach.

Made from soft PU leather and with an adjustable shoulder strap the Calypso Satchel (RRP $139.95) is comfortable to wear, even when it’s filled with lots of baby supplies. On the inside you’ll find a soft, padded change mat for hygienic nappy changes on the go and an insulated bottle holder to keep your baby’s drinks at the right temperature when out and about. I love the handy wipe-clean lining, after all life with a baby is full of sticky messes, grubby fingers and unexpected spills.
