A couple of weeks ago at her baby shower my friend was lamenting the fact that she would soon be forced to carry around a big baby bag rather than her usual stylish handbag. This is something I hadn’t really given much thought to previously but when she mentioned it I thought, “there’s another thing to add to my list of why I am not ready to have kids” (along with 9 months of reduced caffeine intake, no red wine or soft cheese, and no longer being able to sleep in).
So I started googling and eventually found a potential solution (to the bag problem at least!).
OiOi is an Australian owned company responsible for some of the trendiest baby bags I’ve seen, many of which you would not even know were baby bags. They have a variety of styles and prices to suit all mums. And get this – then even make baby bags for men! Now that is definitely something to be applauded! My husband is quite impartial to a good man bag so I am sure when the time comes he will be ordering one of these! (Or I’ll be ordering one for him – why should we women have to do all the carrying around!)
Now we just need to work on a pregnancy-friendly red wine subsitute…
