Bags for busy Mums

Are you in the transition faze of moving on from the baby bag to needing something big enough for a few toddler / kids supplies ?
Sure you could stick with carrying your usual handbag and a kids backpack but when your tired toddler wants to be carried or you have a lot of walking to do then it may be time for a new bag .

So What should you look for when searching for a bag?
1. An easily accessible compartment for mobile phone ( fumbling through your handbag or having to tip the contents of your bag out to find your phone is no fun )
2. A Small pocket for lip balm
3. An interior big enough to fit the survival necessities but not the kitchen sink ( no one wants to look or feel like a pack mule )
4. Try and choose a versatile colour that will go with most outfits ( this is your grab and run bag so it should be able to look great with most outfits)
5. Forget the kids prints this bag is for you ! Choose a style and colour you love . Yes this bag may carry kids snacks a spare change of toddler clothes and a toy or two but you can do this with style.

    Some tips for taking your handbag from work to mum duties .

    I like to use a great waterproof bag insert to store basic items such as a change of clothes and some snacks . That way I can just remove the bag insert before heading to work .

    This Jamberry wet bag from lime tree kids – $9.95 is just the right size.

    What do you carry in your mum on duty bag ?
