In the year 2006, Melanie Marshall and Suzi Bergman, co-founders of Storksak, launched Babymel, a hip, modern line of bags for style and cost-conscious parents. Babymel offers parents a variety of functional styles from hip hobos and utilitarian messenger styles to versatile totes and a unisex two-in-one bag which provides parents with innovative ways to carry necessary items like diaper, bottles and wipes while on the go.
Babymel has several different bags available in varied styles and fabrics. The A/W 10 collection features a bigger sized Amanda style in linear floral print, the Sammie in striking zebra and leopard prints, a stylish tote with insulated bottle holder, padded changing mat, three outer pockets, and a zipped closure for the bag. Besides these the collection features a couple of accessories like the double bottle holder and zebra and leopard prints changing station.
The Amanda Printed has four chic designs – Modern Floral black and white, the Linear Floral red & black and black & white, and the Starburst in multi-colored print.
You can also choose the classic Amanda Quilted that is available in black and pink.
The Babymel x2 is ideal for those parents who have twins or if you have a second child on the way. The two bags can either be clipped together or separated, use it the way you want.
The tool bag is an awesome size with ten outside pockets, two insulated bottle pockets and a changing station.
I am the proud owner of a Babymel Diaper bag – Amanda Zipper and I chose the storm grey color. I love the subtle hues of grey and the black strollerstrap is a very good contrast, coming alive against the grey background. The Amanda Zipper is also available in elegant jet black. The bag is highly functional as the insulated zipper pocket keeps baby’s feed warm enough for long hours. There is an additional pocket too which can be used to keep the burp cloth, so I don’t have to frantically search for one after every feed. The bag has plenty of space, with five internal elasticated pockets and one internal zipped pocket, and comfortably holds baby’s stuff that will be needed outdoors.
The changing mat provided has good size specifications so baby remains within the mats’ periphery while changing diapers. The changing station that fits snugly into the Amanda Zipper bag , has been extremely useful for changing baby’s diaper anytime whilst outdoors. So, baby does not have to spend long hours in soiled and wet diapers. The changing mat has dimensions of h 23 cms, w 26 cms and d 6 cms.
The Babymel bags have the unique strollerstraps, which is solely a Babymel design. Using the strollerstrap you can fix the diaper bag securely on to the stroller and you do not have to carry it slung on your shoulder. This is good if you have put in a lot of stuff and it is heavy to carry as you move around.
If you are on shorter trips, you can opt for the smaller Tool Pouch bag that easily holds two feeding bottles and has ample space with multiple outer pockets. Now when you plan a trip or have to travel you need not worry about easy access to baby’s items. The stylish Babymel bags will have all of your baby’s stuff handy and ready to use.
One lucky Natural Baby Goods reader will receive the Babymel Amanda Zipper bag (the same as I got for review).
