Why You’ll Love The Storksak Sofia Nappy Bag

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

storksak_sofia_review

The Sofia is one of Storksak’s most exclusive styles. The Storksak Sofia is made from soft-twisted leather which is hard-wearing and has a soft, sumptuous feeling. The Sofia is treated to have a vintage feel, and with its antique, and gold hardware. It is as eye catching as it is functional.

The Storksak Sofia is made from beautifully soft leather in hard wearing finish. It has a chunky brushed metal hardware that results in an antique, vintage look. If vintage bag is your style, then you’ll definitely love The Storksak Sofia.

On the outside, the bag has 2 pockets that are big enough to put a change of clothes for my baby. It has about five external magnetic compartments. On the inside, the main compartment size is excellent as it doesn’t have anything to clog it up. I was surprised that it is large enough to carry my 15″ laptop. It is surrounded with ten internal pockets which let you organize things easily in your bag. The back of the bag has a strong and secured zippered pockets to keep your valuables safe.

Storksak Sofia comes with a thermo-insulated bottle holder than can keep fluids warm or cool for up to 5 hours. A zippered pouch to hold isolate dirty items. It also comes with a wipe-clean padded changing mat that has a Velcro tab.

What I love about this bag:

  • I like the fact that it doesn’t scream: “diaper bag!” everywhere and doesn’t look all too feminine.
  • The bag is so versatile. In fact, it doesn’t look like a diaper bag at all. I can use it as a diaper bag, as a carry-on while traveling, or when going to work.
  • It is wider than most diaper bags. Its width helps the bag to not tip over unlike thin bags that easily topple when placed on the table.
  • I also like that it has a lot of space for tiny items like phones, keys, planner, etc. It keeps everything in place and within easy reach. I don’t have to dig deep for these small items as it is conveniently placed where I need them.
  • Sofia comes with a lot of accessories. I love the changing mat because it has the right size and softness for my 6-month-old child.

Smart, chic, and very functional. This is what I first thought when I saw this designer nappy bag, and I wasn’t wrong. I can use the bag as my usual nappy bag but when I’m out and about on my own like when seeing friends or going to work, I can still use this bag and nobody will notice it’s a nappy bag.

Storksak Sofia is available in soft black, tan, stone, and taupe leather.

Conclusion
Overall, the bag smells good, luxurious, and has a thoughtful design. Quality is excellent and the compartments are convenient for all your baby’s needs. It might not be as elegant as the Nova Harley and might not be as cheap as the Carmelina Jewel, but this bag is exquisite in both style and functionality. I recommend these stroller clips along with this bag if you use strollers often.

If you don’t like nappy bags with external compartments, then I recommend Storksak Elizabeth.

Things to Pack in Your Diaper Bag

Sunday, January 12th, 2014

The questionnaire

First time parent? Are you confused about what to pack in your nappy bag? Let us guide you through from the basics, to the essential items to have in your nappy bag.

When you have a new baby, your diaper bag is your lifeline to anything and everything you need. Have you full stocked your nappy bag? Are you sure you are getting everything your baby needs? Are you stuffing too much unnecessary items in your nappy bag?

Here are some items you can pack in your diaper bag to make sure you are prepared for whatever may come up when you go outside with your baby.

Diaper
An obvious one to have in your diapers (nappies). How many diaper bags you need depends on how long you are going to be out, how old your baby is, how is your baby feeling at the moment. On small trips, you’ll need about 6 to 10 diapers, but this also depends on how long you’ll be out. To be safe, don’t forget the rule when packing diapers: Pack more diapers than you think you will need.

Bottles and/or Breastfeeding Gear
Another obvious essential to have in your nappy bag. Have plenty of bottles and formula on hand or any breastfeeding items you need for feeding. Don’t forget to have a bottle of water and remember to pack more than you think you need.

Burp Cloths
A burp cloth is a small, soft cloth used to clean up spit when the baby has burped. Stuff one or two in your diaper bag or even more of these specially if you are already feeding your baby with solid foods.

Changing Pad
If you have read our guide about choosing the right diaper bag, then your nappy bag should have a changing pad built in. If you take it out to use at home or in your friend’s house, remember to always check that you have it in your bag before you go anywhere.

Baby Wipes
Wipes are handy to have in your nappy bag. They are great for cleaning your own hands before and after changing your baby’s diaper and it can be used to remove stains from clothes and furniture.

Diaper rash ointment
Always carry with you a tube of diaper rash ointment to use as a layer of protection and to protect your baby against diaper rash. It also helps soothe your baby’s bottom in case a rash develops.

Spare clothes
Always be prepared for the worst. Pack a spare outfit or two for your baby and remember to pack an extra shirt for you too.

Extras
Depending on how long you are planning to be out, be sure to have ziplock bag (wet bag) for baby diapers, one to two blankets, pacifiers, toys, teething rings, first aid kit, tissues, lotion with high SPF, some medicines to alleviate pain and fever, snacks for you and your baby, tissues, and a somecash in case of emergencies.

New Diaper Bags from Petunia Pickle Bottom

Wednesday, January 1st, 2014

Today we hear from guest blogger mum Michelle about the stylish and functional nappy bags from Petunia Pickle Bottom. We hope you find this useful! :

After struggling with diaper bags that I’ve had for years, I decided that its time to find a perfect diaper bag for my next child. I almost decided to not have a diaper bag at all, until I came across Petunia Pickle Bottom. These bags are truly like no other.

Petunia Pickle Bottom bags look more like your everyday bag than a diaper bag. The design combines both beauty and functionality.

Petunia Pickle Bottom bags have really deep pockets. Its so deep that you can fit almost any item in it. I use the front pocket for keeping my iPad and, surprisingly, it doesn’t add up to the bulk.

Inside the bag, you’ll see a zippered pouch attached by a velcro. I find this pouch to be very handy specially during those times where I can’t dispose a dirty diaper. I simply place the diaper in this waterproof pouch, then zip it up!

One unique feature about Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bag is that it has a built-in changing station. Located conveniently in the front of the bag, the changing station contains 2 diaper pockets, a monogrammed wipe case, and a detachable changing pad.

Petunia Pickle Bottom is for those who love beauty and functionality. Any mum can fall in love with Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bags because they are not just stylish, but they are also crafted with the finest quality materials and craftsmanship.

Petunia Pickle Bottom bags are compatible with the Petunia Pickle Bottom Vallet Stroller Clips (sold separately).

They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
