Nursing bag! I've never seen that.



I love Ikea. I shouldn't have opened up their site but for a link I wanted to share.

Now I need that.

Dear God. Could one store get any better?

Okay, what IS that?

I've never heard of a "nursing bag," but it has a removable bottle holder. Is it a diaper bag? I'm confused!

I am a huge Ikea fan, but that just looks like a regular nappy bag to me. I would remove the bottle holder or put my own water bottle in it.

are you excited because they called it a NURSING bag ?

.... I used to be annoyed because I couldn't afford one of these posh all inclusive bags .... in the end, I made my own waterproof pads by cutting a waterproof mattress protector and sewing bias tape all around & just using a nice (but cheap back pack) .... if it's for a nursing mom, why does it need an insulated water bottle holder ?

maybe I'm missing something there ...

Yeah, pretty much. That is pretty much it, Isa. I'm easily impressed.

I myself use a backpack and I don't even use waterproof pads. But that was not the point.

If a mom is pumping, she may want to insulate the milk she pumps.

didn't think of that one, thanks for reminding me (I pumped less and less with each subsequent child LOL)

I agree with you that it's GREAT that they sell something that has "nursing" in its name ..... am just concerned about the price tag .... (for a first time parent, it can seem daunting to feel one is not ready because one has not baught everything that's marketed for parents = I didn't think much before becoming a parent obviously so that's why I felt inadequate in failing to buy all the paraphernalia .... it's only experience that taught me that most gadgets .... are only useful in some specific circumstances ....that may not even happen to me !)

+ I wish the situation would improve about about nursing bras too, I'm sure it's hampering the rise in the rate of nursing mothers

if I would win the lottery, I would inject a few millions here and there in order to improve design, prices and availability of nursing bras

having to shop for something so specific in the post partum period can be hard, especially with a body still changing in volume and size etc ...

With my second baby, I found that my wireless pre-pregnancy bras worked best. I just pulled it down. Much easier to put myself back together after nursing in public. This is what I like because there's more support.

But we can love Ikea for their "Nursing" room! Soft lighting, comfy rocking chair, change table, and toys to play with. Thanks, Ikea! A great spot to chill with a babe (or in my case, a toddler.)

Oh I have never seen a nursing room at Ikea...maybe they don't have one at every Ikea. Would have loved that when my children were babies.

I love Ikea too...although I am not crazy about a home that looks like it is filled with nothing but Ikea, they certainly have some great products. I have recently got Ikea shelves in my craft room and they are wonderful!

I was thinking the same thing - like a nursery is for a baby, a nursing bag holds your baby stuff.

Bubble burst. LOL Oh, well.

I've NEVER been to an Ikea without a nursing/baby care room. Perhaps it just looked like a changing room? But there are no toilets in there.
