ImageUploadedByPurseForum1409866716.252117.jpg Hi! I'm having my first baby (it's going to be a girl!) beginning of November and I want to get a 40cm birkin as a baby changing bag. I'm going to get the attached pram and want to make sure my birkin matches it. What colour leather do you think I should get? Is taupe too dark do you think? Would love to hear all your suggestions! Thank you!

I think etoupe would match pretty well. But have you also considered a "pop" color for contrast, for example, orange or red? That would be cute too!

Congrats! My baby girl is 12weeks old now and I use my black birkin (35) as a baby bag sometimes.. But my pram is also neutral (black and silver) and I think I'd prefer a bright birkin to contrast. Im hoping for a pink or red one so that i can also pass it down to my daughter later on to start a little tradition. I think red would look great with that beige... Or even navy!

Yes I was also thinking it would be nice to have a contrasting colour - would probably go for Rose Lipstick then in 40cm! Think it could look very cute

If I was to stay with new neutral colour I think your right that Etoupe is the best match - I could always attach a bright coloured Fendi monster to make it a bit more fun 😛

Thanks for all your suggestions guys! X

hmmm i think if its going to be used with your pram, you'd want a colour that you won't need to baby in case it gets dirty? a brown or even a gold one would be classic and matchy IMO

Gorgeous bag, I would have taken it for myself! Forget the nappy bag! :P
Etoupe or black with PHW would be nice as a daiper bag but just bare in mind that Togo in 40cm can break your arm, imagine it weighed down with the bottles, dummies, nappies...

This is my first baby so I have no idea what is needed to go in the bag other than the basics... Do you think a 35cm would work? I was thinking the same thing that 40cm can be very heavy!! But then again I'll just have it attached to pram the whole time so maybe not so bad haha

A 35 will be very heavy too. I suggest you try some on if you have the possibility. A friend has one maybe? Regardless if 35 or 40 a filled up togo/clemence will be super heavy but if it will sit on the stroller mist if the time maybe that wont be a problem?

As for colour I would go with a neutral if it were to be used for diapers/babystuff. If you are planning on using it for other purposes I would pick a colour I like. Which colours do you currently have in birkins?

Congrats on your little one.

The basics for a baby I would imagine to be quite a lot?
