Who doesn’t love Autumn? Time to feel snuggly and cosy and to resurrect all your warm knitwear, winter coats and boots or even buy new if you have some maternity pay left! But if you’re a new mama, or just heading off on maternity leave you may be wondering how to give your Autumn Winter wardrobe a quick stylish make-over whilst still keeping in the ‘practical’ mama frame of mind, keeping to a budget and not wasting money on clothes that might not fit you for too long as your body changes shape post baby.
Well, we have the answer. It is of course, your changing bag!
Yes, your old faithful friend that will literally be by your side from the moment you go in to hospital to have baby, to the time you resurface a few years down the line with a toddler in tow is… the humble changing bag.
Or maybe not so humble any more. Changing bags have had a marvellous regeneration over the last few years and this magical vessel has been reclaimed by mamas the world over as way of asserting their personal sense of style and affirming their personality. A bog standard baby accessory? No way!
As leading brands Storksak, Babymel and JEM+BEA launch their new Autumn Winter 2017 collections, here at Burble Baby we’ve picked our top changing bag styles that we think you mamas are going to be totally in love with this fall. Think texture, prints and luxurious fabrics, all designed with quality and practicality in mind. Oh, and YOUR sense of style of course! Fashion savvy mamas, read on…
