OK, so the question is how many nappy bags does one mum need?
Well, let's see. There's one for every day stuff like nappies, bottles, snacks etc. And there's one each for 'overnight stays'... and there's one for toys and books.... Can you ever have too many bags? Am I over-justifying? Is that even a word?
The bottom line is that I needed to upgrade to something bigger. With two bubs, there's twice the nappies and bottles. And I was carrying a separate bag of books and toys for Isla. So, mum and I came up with a bigger bag to fit everything. We made the outer pockets bigger on the sides to fit water bottles. And we made large patchwork zippered pockets on the front and back to store bits and pieces I didn't want the kids playing with, like my phone and the car-keys! Inside, we made a bigger pouch to fit the nappies and wipes all-in-one. And there's still heaps of room to fit bottles, food, toys and even magazines and games.

I wanted colours that weren't too girlie so that my husband wouldn't cringe when asked to carry the nappy bag :o) So when I was in Calico and Ivy recently, I hunted through the reds and found the perfect combination. And we went for a navy outer and mustard inner - both from Carols of Midland, in Midland.

Now let's see how much more I can squeeze in there!
