We design baby changing bags for mums who love bold prints and vibrant colour. Our bags are fun, funky and functional, featuring gorgeous designs that have been created especially for us by a range of super-talented independent designers.
We believe your baby bag should be a thing of joy! When it feels like you haven’t slept for a year (probably because you haven’t) and your brain has left the building, life is so much better with a bag that helps you stay organised and looks fabulous to boot.
For the Ollie & Ella collection, we chose colours and designs that were vibrant and fun and made us feel happy. We hope you love them as much as we’ve enjoyed creating them!
In our experience, staying organised is all about ‘the system’. So each bag features a unique pocket labelling system that you can customise for you and your baby, zips down at the front and sides for easy access, and has a total of ten pockets plus a compartment at the back for your changing mat.
Having road tested the bags ourselves for the past six months, we can confirm that they are incredibly strong, hold a LOT of stuff and are stain resistant. (We did the baked beans test!). And, when you’re past the baby stage, they’re great for the beach, swimming lessons or a family day out.
Finding the best possible childcare for your most treasured possession can be a daunting and, often, quite stressful task, particularly when you have to return to work before you feel ready. Below, Bubble & Pop childcare expert, Hope Swail, gives us some top tips on what to look for when you’re viewing potential settings for your baby.
Breast is best. As women, we are bombarded with this mantra from so many sources long before we even plan on having offspring! And of course, there is no denying that breast milk is amazing with massive benefits for both baby and mama alike. “Liquid gold” is what the lactation nurses at my local hospital CONSTANTLY called it.
After an amazing grown-ups only trip to New York earlier this year, we decided to go back with Ella for mid-term break. It was the perfect time to visit, not too cold (even by Ella’s standards!) and not too busy with holiday crowds yet. While New York doesn’t initially strike you as a place to bring a small person, we found loads of amazing activities to fill our days.
