I decided early on that I wanted a stylish baby bag and not your stereotypical baby bag. In fact, I still refuse to call it a nappy bag – in my mind I am cooler than that! I find lots of baby bags to be bulky and ugly and definitely not something I wanted to be seen carrying around with me. In the first year as a new mum you will use this accessory EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. So, it is worth some thought and investment when choosing a stylish baby bag.
I encourage you to think outside of the box when you are choosing your baby bag and not to commit to the status quo because you think you should. And hey, if it is not a traditional baby bag then you can continue to use it for years to come. In fact I accidentally bought a Coach baby bag some years ago as a travel carry-on and didn’t even realize. It wasn’t until later on when I found the changing mat inside!
So, lets take a look at a few of my fave stylish baby bags to inspire all you trendy mums.
8 Stylish Baby Bags for Every Mum
Mimco is an Australian favorite brand and I know many mummies to be love their stylish baby bags. They come in a range of beautiful colors and are excellent quality. Whilst I didn’t opt for the baby bag, I bought a Mimco backpack to carry around my daughter’s things and I used it HEAPS. Mimco now also offer a baby backpack with convenient features such as a change mat and insulated pockets.
This bag is a popular staple for many ladies whether for traveling, as a luxe baby bag or for everyday life. The patterns are very iconic, you can fit A LOT in them and the leather is super durable.

I bought this bag as a travel bag before becoming a mum but now I use it quite frequently as I think its quite a practical and stylish baby bag.

My French friends also tell me that these were the holy grail of school bags as a teenage girl in France!
Be the hippest Mum in town with this gorgeous Gucci backpack. I found a backpack to be much easier to carry around whilst Mackenzie was young as it didn’t slip off my shoulder or get in the way of holding her on my hip. This particular one would obviously be a very special treat, but perhaps you could subtly suggest it as your push present – you deserve it after all!

I have been a fan of Marc Jacobs bags for a long time and proudly sport a few in my collection. This design is classic yet eye catching, and I’m pretty sure your baby daddy won’t object to carrying it around when it is their turn to ‘babysit‘. The perfect luxe baby bag which can continue to be used for years to come.
I couldn’t complete my stylish baby bags list without something from Burberry. As I mentioned above, I really liked using a backpack and this purpose made luxe baby bag looks ideal. The stunning sleek black design and iconic check print inside means it is very fashionable whilst also being very convenient.
