Mummy Must Have Review | Luna Blu Olivia Nappy Bag Set

So I did something totally crazy and out of character for me recently... I got a new nappy bag. Yea I know, that's the extent of how crazy my life gets now that I'm a mum. I still love my old Megan bag, but when I heard Luna Blu recently released their first proper nappy bag I knew I had to give it a go.

Like all Luna Blu bags, the Olivia nappy bag is made from their signature water-resistant oilcloth fabric which can be easily wiped clean. It's available in Indiana Rose which is a fairly neutral floral pattern on a pastel green background with beige cotton webbing straps and leather trims. I'm normally not a fan of anything overly floral, but I'm quite partial to the Indiana Rose print because the pattern isn't too overpowering and I like the neutral undertones. It also has an aqua blue nylon lining which can be wiped clean too so we're covered for any spills, or accidents involving sticky little hands, which is a definite plus now I have a toddler consuming all sorts of messy food.

The Olivia bag is a purpose built nappy bag so it has loads of storage for all the bits and bobs we need when out and about. There are 9 internal pockets around the outer edges of the bag and there's loads of storage within the open part of the bag too. Having the open compartments means I can separate items and find them easily and quickly when needed. I use the pockets for nappies, wipes, nappy bags and cream, bibs, drink bottle, phone, keys, pen and paper, dummy and small toys. I then put my wallet, deodorant, change mat, her blankie and snacks in the middle section. I can actually fit her whole lunch box in the middle section when we need to take cold food with us. There's also 3 outer pockets too that clip closed for extra storage.


What I really love about the bag is that it closes completely with a main zip which is important for me, especially with so many compartments inside. I hate the idea of having my bag sitting open for people to snoop in if my back is turned, so the zip gives me piece of mind that everything's ok. In addition to that there's also a clasp that closes over the zip, which I do up when I have the bag sitting on the pram, for added security. There's also a shoulder strap which I use all the time because I prefer to carry bags on my shoulder rather than by handles.


The Olivia nappy bag set includes the Olivia nappy bag, the matching change mat and additional pram straps. The change mat is also made from the same water resistant, easy to clean oilcloth fabric as the bag which makes it easy to wipe down should any accidents happen during nappy changes. It comes in extremely handy when I have to change her in less than ideal places. The pram straps allow the bag to be attached to pram handles {of any pram or stroller} and hang at an optimal level for access to the bag as well as to avoid damage from it rubbing against wheels, like bags can do when you simply hang them via the shoulder strap. I always utilise the pram straps when we're out. 


The Olivia nappy bag set has everything you could need in a nappy bag and its fashionable as well. It's also reasonably priced at only $129 for the entire set {the pram straps and changing mat can also be purchased separately as well if you want to get them to compliment a nappy bag you already own}. If you'd love to have the Olivia Nappy Bag Set in your life too then I have good news, Luna Blu have kindly given me one to giveaway.

  1. What's not to love about this fabulous Olivia nappy bag set! Apart from the amazing storage and gorgeous print, I absolutely love the special straps that can hang from the sides of the pram. Such a common sense feature for a nappy bag! I also love the name, just like my beautiful little girl ��

  2. My absolute favourite feature would have to be the nine internal compartments and the 3 external compartments! This is critical to me because i have a toddler but am due to have my second girl child in early january and need a bag that screams "STORAGE!!" I have also never owned a nappy bag before because i could never find one that was quite feminine enough. When i say feminine i mean i own a hot pink pram... it is hard to compliment it. I think this bag may have just solved my dilemma! Finally!

    1. It certainly has a lot of storage. Sometimes I don't even fill all the pockets because I don't have enough stuff {although I'm sure between the two of them you'll have it full}.

  3. I love the outer pockets. Perfect for all those things that go in last to the bag but you want to find first after your morning out, like keys!

  4. I love the straps that allow it to be hung easily on the pram handlebar! The print is super lovely too!

  6. You have to love oil cloth, fashionable and functional! ! And love the pram straps that look like they will actually fit many pram handles!! Winner in my book!

    1. The oil cloth is definitely a god send with little people. Its saved me from so many stains on this bag and my megan bag.

  7. It looks super cute and practical too. I love those ones with the long straps you can hang over the pram - an absolute must! #teamIBOT

  8. I love the pockets and compartments-no excuse for not being able to find the nappy cream, snacks for toddler or even the keys. Perfect for a soon to be second time Mum who needs to increase her organisational skills!

    1. Yep its so much easier to find everything when it all has its own spot.

    It's the perfect size! I'm currently cramming all our gear into a kid-size backpack. The Olivia bag looks big enough to fit everything perfectly without me feeling like I'm dragging around the whole house with me! The gorgeous print and handy pram straps are added bonuses as well :)

    1. I keep thinking I should swap to a backpack soon because everyone with toddlers seems to do it, but there's not way I could fit all our stuff in a backpack.

  11. What a sweet nappy bag, absolutely love the different compartments in there. Good to know that I can reach into the bag and feel for the desired item straight away when they are all neatly tucked into compartments =)

    1. Yes that's one of the things I love most, it definitely doesn't scream nappy bag from the outside.

  13. I love the size/shape. I cannot seem to find a bag that has this shape but the size to fit everything I actually need with a toddler and a preschooler! Plus my stuff as well! Perfect shape.

  14. I love all those straps for all those different uses for that amazing bag!

    1. So many different straps, they really have thought of every way you could use it.

  15. You know, I wish handbags were made like nappy bags! I love the pockets in them, and wish that normal ladies bags had just as many. I don't need to carry nappies with me any more, but I still have keeps of kid stuff in my bag, and I would like some pockets!

    1. You should just buy it and use it as a normal bag Jess lol nobody would know from the outside that its a nappy bag.

  16. I absolutely adore and can not get over the clever stroller straps, what a genius idea!! And if that wasn't enough clever from one bag a zip at the top!! I also am over the top, mad and ra y in love with the gorgeous floral oil cloth. Oh I swoon

    1. The zip at the top was a must for me because I don't like bags that only clip up or sit open. Plus the pram straps are awesome, all bags should have them.

    2. They should indeed!!

      I'm so in love with this print and have all my fingers and toes crossed

  17. Well it looks gorgeous but my favourite thing is the pram straps - I've never seen that before. Someone was very clever in designing that.

  18. This is a seriously gorgeous bag! As mummy's without sleep anything to make us feel happy (and a little bit together) is a winner! Thanks for joining #reviewroundup

    1. I know right. Anything organised is very welcome around here because everything is so chaotic all the time.

  19. I love the outer pockets as being a mere male and a dad at that I don't have a handbag or a man-bag to put things in.

  20. Pram straps, an awesome design, just having a long strap isn't always good for every type of pram/stroller!

  21. I love everything about this bag all the 9 compartments plus my name is Olivia so I definitely need this bag. Love love love the design and practicality of it ♡

    1. They're so easy to keep clean, its a huge plus and probably the best feature of their entire range of bags.

  27. How do i pick just one favourite feature! It's gorgeous, so much space and so many compartments for all the stuff i'm finding i'll need when my first little one arrives in January, change mat for those not so sanitary nappy changes, & sounds so easy to clean!

    But i think if i absolutely had to pick one feature it would be the variety of straps. The handles make it easier to lift it up quickly to grab something out but i don't like carrying bags by the handles so the shoulder strap is great and then to top it off the pram straps make it so handy!

    1. I love all the handles too. I use the shoulder strap when carrying it, but the pram straps make it so much easier when she's in the pram.

  28. Love it - looks so pretty and yet it also is seemingly quite practical!

  29. All the storage compartments! I hate having to pull out everything to find the thing that I need has fallen to the bottom. A place for everything is fantastic!
