Anyone bought a baby bag for a dad?

We have now purchased most of what we consider the basics for the arrival of our daughter. One of the last things left for us to buy is the baby bag and I’m really not sure I can handle another trip to the shops…..

We had originally thought (I say ‘we thought’, but what I really mean is ‘Rambo thought’) of a nice designer bag that doubles up as a baby changing bag. I do have to ‘give her her due’, she’s not materialistic, but she likes her Mulberry handbags! Needless to say we have been thankfully advised that an expensive designer bag is very impractical when it comes to storing and holding all the baby items.

All this painful talk of bags got me thinking..

Could I pick a bag that we would both be happy with? It’s just like buying a gym bag, right?

So, I set about the tedious task of looking for bags we could both use as our baby changing bag. Let’s face it, most of the baby bags out there are geared towards mothers (or at least the ones Rambo has looked at are) and if I don’t find one on the internet it will mean I may end up carrying a an un-gentleman like bag.

Here we go, If I was to grade a bag…… now that’s not something I thought I’d ever write or say out loud. Anyway, if i was to grade a bag, here would be the criteria:

Size – Is it big enough to hold all the baby bits?

Accessibility – How easy is it to find and retrieve items quickly?

Carry-ibility – (I know it’s not a word) – How easy is it to carry? Especially as we’re likely to be juggling lots of things at one time?

Hipster Rating – How likely are the local hipsters to have the same bag? Basically, Is it cool?

Price – Will we need a second mortgage to buy one?

Material – Will it hold up to having baby poop and sick on it and can it be cleaned easily?

Style – Apparently bags have styles. Mad right? Who knew. Totes, Rucksacks and Duffle to name a few..

Rambo Rating – What does the boss think? Will she use it or am I on my own?

The bags I like:
