One thing that I totally forgot is buying a diaper bag for the baby. I know it's too early to buy everything now but I know I'll be too busy starting next month until my due date, with house moving, packing, chores, work and such. I think it's no harm to stock up early, just in case. At least when all the main things are settled, I can crossed off a few things off my mind. What an ease!
My initial plan is to just recycle my old big (hand)bags and converting them into diaper bags. Talking about saving costs! But then, I went online and saw many designs of cute diaper bag, being me, decided to forgo the cost-saving idea and went ahead on a shopping spree. Hahaha.
I have a soft spot on anything related to animals. I love pandas to bits but it's hard to find a cute, good size panda bag/backpack to be converted as a diaper bag. Then I saw a bunch of owl designs on the internet and since then was hooked on anything related to owls. One of them is Beatrix NY Little Kid Backpack.
This collection is currently a favourite in Hollywood. They do come in various animal design. Apart from backpacks (which comes in two sizes), they even have matching lunch bags/boxes, trolley bags and water bottles for kids. I don't know if you can get this bag anywhere else out there (do tell me if you happen to stumble upon it) but I knew there's a shop in Bangsar Village which sells Beatrix NY: Creatures of the Forest collection for RM149.90, if I'm not mistaken.
I really got the itch to search for this bag online and when I finally found one, I was so happy and didn't think twice, just paid for it. And thanks to the excellent service by Poslaju, the bag arrived at my doorstep the very next day after I made the purchase.
I love the simplicity of this bag. Can't wait to stuff all the baby items in this backpack. Hewhewhew.
