I gave birth in November and have been looking for the perfect mom-and-baby (and 4-and 6- year olds) bag for a while now. Despite my deep love for Balenciaga, I pretty much ruled it out because I figured a City wouldn't work, the Work doesn't go over my shoulders nicely, the WE is HUGE, and the Day doesn't hold enough for all of us.

Well thanks to this forum, I discovered the Courier. I found a violet Courier on Real Deal Collection and it's perfect! The leather is thick and just distressed enough. The pockets are huge so I can keep my things separate from the baby's, and I don't have to go hunting around.. Best of all, I can spend the day shopping and still be hands free at the end of it all:yes:

I love how it looks, and prefer wearing it over the shoulder than cross-body. I'm only 5'2" but am not overwhelmed by it at all!! I highly recommend it to all mommies out there and everyone else looking for a B-bag that holds just a little more...

Hey Shasta, same for me. I'm one year ahead of you, my three kids are 10, 8 (almost nine) and 5. :smile: Wish I had a courier when they were littler (come to think of it, I wouldn't mind having one now!).

Hipnymom, I'd love to see pictures of you modeling. Congratulations.

Ok, here they are:smile:

First, my Violet courier - lots and lots of luscious Bal leather:drool:
I love the leather on this bag - very thick and just the right amount of distressed. It still needs to be broken in:yes:

I'm so glad to hear that you like the Courier as a Baby Bag!! I just got the Shopping Style in preparation for my Baby that is coming in March. I will have to consider the Courier too! Glad to hear you don't feel overwhelmed with it. That was my main concern. Congrats on your new little one!!!!:yahoo:

Thanks, Erica! I do find it a bit large and harder to get into when worn cross-body (plus I sometimes wear my baby in a sling and I don't know how that would work LOL). But over the shoulder, the extra leather just tends to drape down and I think it looks just fine:smile: Good luck with your new addition!
