If you’re pregnant and about to have a baby soon you may not realise it yet, but a dedicated Baby Bag is an essential for parenthood. It’s surprising how much your tiny little bundle of joy needs whenever you leave the house.
Wipes, plenty of nappies, baby balm, bibs, bottles, rusks, change of clothes, spare socks, rattle, tissues, teethers… and that’s just the baby! You also need to take your own essentials.
The thing I love about baby bags? It’s the one accessory you’ll buy when you have a baby that’s for YOU! With all the expense involved with having a baby – nursery furniture and decor, stroller, car seat, toys, breastpump, bottles, monitors and more, it’s the one stylish accessory that’s for you – Mama!
I’ve said this before about the new wave of stylish baby bags, and how they just seem to be getting more and more stylish – aren’t we lucky? Sage & Luna is no exception – just WAIT ’til you get a load of their range. A fabulous and oh-so-stylish collection including handbags, totes and backpacks to suit every Mama. Yes, backpacks!
As Sage & Luna founder and stylish Mama of three Abbey says: “Designed by a mother for mothers who refuse to lose their style”.
The functional and stylish Sage & Luna baby bags work well with babies, toddlers and children because they do not look like baby bags or handbags. Stylish enough to use as an everyday bag, yet functional enough to work as a baby bag, there’s something for every stylish Mama. From black to blush, navy, grey and tan the colours are on trend and the leather is so soft and great quality.
The leather is so sturdy that the bag stands up on its own, so you can easily reach things inside with just one hand without it falling over and everything falling out.
Even model Mish Mac is a fan, recently posting a photo with her new baby girl using her ‘Leda’ Sage & Luna bag in grey and looking so stylish too.
There are plenty of compartments for organising your bag on the inside, and lots of handy zip pockets on the outside for easy access too. The leather exterior of the bags is strong and sturdy to ensure it can survive babies and children, and with a nylon interior it can easily wiped clean in case of any spills or stains.
These bags really do look like high-end designer bags; no-one will ever know there’s nappies and wipes inside!

The ‘Idaho’ Baby Bag is a favourite of mine because not only is a gorgeous looking bag with loads of room and pockets inside, it’s just so versatile. You can wear it as a shoulder bag, a handbag, attach it to the stroller or use both straps to use as a backpack.
A baby bag that looks great but is also functional is essential for a stylish Mama, but what about Dad? We have enough to do, and carry, especially when you’re out and about and you need to hold the baby, look after other children, navigate the car doors, unfold the stroller and so on. Dad needs to help.
What sets Sage & Luna apart from other bag collections is the ‘his and hers’ bags for Mum AND Dad.
My husband absolutely loathes carrying a nappy bag – despite the fact he’s simply HAD to on numerous occasions (I have enough to do – and hold!) The Chara from Sage & Luna looks more like a satchel, and as it’s made from canvas your partner won’t mind carrying it.
The Chara comes in a gorgeous neutral navy blue with tan leather handles, it looks nothing like a baby bag so even hubby can carry this ‘baby bag’ without looking like he’s carrying a handbag.
The matching version for Dads is the Yarra (River) and comes in the same navy blue with tan leather detail and is worn as a backpack. Perfect for carrying baby AND a bag all at one. Hands free, it’s the ultimate accessory for carrying all your essentials for baby and other young ones.
It opens up inside to reveal plenty of room for your baby’s essentials, and comes with a change mat and insulated bottle holder that can actually fit two sippy cups inside. A great family bag and so stylish.
And in the spirit of giving back, for every bag sold Sage & Luna donates a birthing kit to Birthing Kit Foundation (Australia) believing that every woman has the right to a clean and safe childbirth. How fabulous is that?
