Baby Bag Shopping Hazards

I’m a big believer in the things I have being comfortable first and foremost. Style and other considerations come next.


One of the paths this has lead me down is to look into baby bags.


This path is full of hazards – I’m late 20s (30 later this year), married and don’t have kids. The first thing anyone asks if they hear you’re not drinking (as I haven’t been much this year due to crappy health) seems to start with a gasp. This is compounded further (though more reasonably) if I try to look up baby bags or wander through a baby shop. Though at least for a little while, I can use my friend from high school’s impending baby as an excuse.


Why a baby bag?


Because I have a lot of crap. It’s just figurative crap, not literal.


I live in Brisbane. Which means humid, soul-sucking summers. Which means I carry a waterbottle pretty much everywhere I go year-round.


I also have a slight notebook addiction and carry a few one with me everywhere.


Then there’s my long commute and accompyaning exessive phone use, which means I carry a powerbank and cable with me on the trains and buses.


Let alone my medicine kit.


It’s a good thing I don’t wear makeup, right?!


I also feel like I’m getting busier and need to carry my laptop (when I get a new one) around with me more – so that will fit safely into that section of baby bags that holds the mat. Is the mat the right word?


Any advice for baby bag shopping? What’s a good brand that doesn’t look too much like a baby bag but is awesome?

      Haha so did that “oh crap I need to be prepared with nappies everywhere” situation help to choose the one that suits twins?
