21 Jun The Mommy Bag that REALLY fits it all
It’s become my personal goal to explore and show the boys more of our own city. The problem is that whenever we’re out and about, I find myself juggling juice, snacks, bottles, dummies, blankets, not to mention my wallet, phone, camera and lipgloss. I desperately needed a mommy bag that could hold everything while leaving me hands-free to hold tiny hands and snap photos of our next adventure.
Enter the backpack Baby Bag from 4aKid – the perfect bag for moms on the go!
After using my backpack bag for the last 2 months, I can confirm that there’s nothing better than a backpack that has been designed with moms in mind. Don’t believe me? Here are just a few features that make my life on the move that much easier:
The bag has two main compartments that each close with a zip. The main section features snap closure handles, has 4 open pockets for nappies, wipes and creams, with a zipped wall pocket ideal for keeping your phone and personal belongings. The front zipped pocket is insulated, with 3 bottle pockets and a mesh pocket that I like to keep snacks in. On either side is an open pocket, one of which is waterproof and designed to give you easy access to wet wipes.
The main compartment of the bag offers more than enough space. In fact, I have 2 blankets, a feeding cover, and an outfit and jacket for each of the boys, leaving a lot of space for any extras, like my camera bag, purse and travel wallet.
Remember I said that this bag is designed with moms in mind? Besides the little add-ons like the dedicated wet wipe pocket that is waterproof, the main compartment also features a rear zipper that can be accessed from the back of the bag, making it easier for you to grab necessities from the bottom. The bag is also water resistant, dustproof and super easy to clean – yup, they even considered how messy kids are!
I always joke that new moms leave home with everything short of the kitchen sink – well, it certainly feels like it – but jokes aside, I really struggle to be comfortable carrying a big, heavy bag. But with the backpack style, the weight is distributed evenly, while the adjustable padded shoulders make the carry comfortable and best of all, my hands are free!
The backpack bag from 4aKid is available in 7 colours (red, navy, black, peach, grey, light purple, and aqua) and retails for R504 directly from 4aKid’s website. The bag is my go-to for everything from a quick trip to the store, to a full day out exploring. You can like and follow 4aKid on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

I live on copious amounts of coffee, spend my free time listening to podcasts while I garden or journal, and really enjoy baking fresh treats for my family. On the weekends, you’ll likely find me exploring our local city, looking for new family-friendly places for our kids, but that’s only if I am not already shouting at the soccer on TV. I support Tottenham and enjoy pretending to know what I am doing in the Fantasy League, but really I am just in it for the laughs. I can be bribed with chocolate and will never admit to having too much makeup – although, I probably do.
