For many pregnant women one of the most exciting things they do in preparation for their new arrival is packing their hospital bag. Packing your hospital bag makes everything feel so real and you can’t help but feel butterflies in your tummy as you fold up those tiny little outfits your baby will wear when they first enter the world. Putting together everything you need for your hospital bag is such a lovely experience and it makes you feel prepared, but finding the perfect bag to fit everything in is also half the fun. Here at Mama Style we have come across so many different changing bags and hospital bags, all of which are wonderful in different ways, but when we came across the new Storksak Travel Duffle Bag we knew we had found ‘the one’.
This stylish lightweight duffle bag ticks all the boxes. It is really spacious so you will be able to fit everything in the one bag for both you and baby. On the inside it has two large open elasticated pockets for easy access to things like your phone charger, lip balm or bottle of water and one large mesh zip pocket which runs the entire length of the bag, which is spacious enough for things like a change of underwear, nightie and socks. This in itself would be a fantastic bag, but it doesn’t end there, it also comes with a fold away hanging organiser which has 4 compartments for you to organise all your bits and pieces, this fits perfectly in the main compartment of the bag so you can see where everything is, it can even be removed and hung up once you arrive at the hospital. Each shelf is removable so if you don’t want four compartments you can simply remove some of the compartments to make two larger compartments for example.
The bag also comes with a small packing block which is perfect for easy access to all your baby’s smaller bits and pieces such as nappy cream, nappy bags, cotton wool and wipes. The packing block slots neatly into one of the organiser compartments.
This bag is such great quality, its not just the inside of the bag that has been designed to perfection, it’s all the little details on the outside too such as a small pocket which is the perfect size for your purse and phone, the leather luggage tag, two way zip, removable shoulder strap, there are even two clever adjustable straps which can be adapted to carry your towel, a blanket or even a large changing mat.
After your baby is born you will continue to get so much use out of this bag as it is perfect for days out or weekends away. It’s super stylish and it’s a bag your other half won’t be embarrassed to be seen carrying. We could not recommend this bag highly enough! Check out our video of how perfectly everything fits in…
