I’m sure you’ve been there. You’ve popped out to the shops, you have a perfectly packed nappy bag â€“ slash hand bag â€“ slash reusable shopping bags carrier bag slung casually over your shoulder, and baby or toddler popped in the trolley seat. You’re walking up and down the isles, and getting through the shopping when your little decides going vroom, vroom up and down the rows is no longer good enough and you now need to â€˜up’.
Or you’ve taken her out for a walk with her push bike or tricycle and half way back home she decides enough is enough and now she wants to be carried.
You can fight the whole way through, of course, but for me, it’s somehow simpler to manoeuvre a child, a trolley/bike and a bag, along with the shopping, all the way home (then people wonder why I’m exhausted by bed time.)
Enter the Baby And All Bag.
First off, I’ll give you the downside â€“ this wouldn’t replace my permanent sling. It isn’t as comfortable for full time use, especially when the bag is full and you’re carrying a 12kg two-year old.
But that’s about it. The up sides are amazing, and this is a fantastic invention and has proven to be an absolute god-send: especially at the airport when standing in a long queue waiting to go through customs and immigration.
The design is really well thought out, giving you great flexibility for front or side carrying, but you don’t have to carry an additional sling in your bag for nipping about â€“ which I have found to be a great bonus at times when you can simply do with having your hands free.
And the greatest part is that it changes into a sling in just four really easy click-in moves.Â The best way to explain this Baby and All bag is to watch the video, really, but it is an amazing invention, and a life saver when you need a helping hand. Â The strap splits to allow two shoulder use, to help spread the weight and make it more comfortable.
As a nappy bag, it’s great too and has all the parts you need. Â There’s a large interior, made silver so you can see what’s in your bag, rather than just a black interior that leaves you scrabbling around inside for ages.Â There are two exterior pockets for little things, and a hidden side pocket â€“ great for passports, in my experience.Â Inside you’ll also find a folded and quality change mat.
