Other Uses for Your Baby Bag

Designed to transition with you from adulthood to parenthood without compromising style for functionality, your Alf baby bag can continue to be used for years to come. 

As a small business, sustainability means a lot to us. Our pieces are not a product of fast fashion and are designed to be used throughout all the stages of parenthood, from your first born to siblings, and once children have grown they can be converted to work bags, handbags, travel bags or everyday bags.

We've listed 15+ practical and creative ways to continue using your nappy bag:

For Work

Almost all our baby bags can be perfectly transitioned from baby bag to work bag. With many able to fit an iPad or laptop, their luxurious design, ample compartments and organisational storage make them perfect work bags.  Browse work bags >

For Travel

Whether your travelling with or without kids, a spacious and organised bag is essential. You can use it to store snacks, toys, books, and other items to keep your little ones entertained on long flights or road trips. Alternatively you can use it to replace your old, tired duffel and have a luxurious overnight bag for weekends away. You can even keep the bag packed and ready to go for when your children head to their grandparent's house. Browse travel bags >

For the Family

Nappy bags don't have to just be for the newborn days. Designed to be used throughout parenthood, they can be used by the whole family. From bags for family outings, or picnics, daycare, sports, swimming and beach bags. You could even regift it back to your little one as a school backpack, once they've entered the next chapter. Browse backpacks >

Donate It

Prefer to upgrade to something new? Donate your baby bag to the Alf Exchange and swap it for something new, just for you.

To ensure our bags are loved well beyond parenthood we created our unique flagship charity program, The Alf Exchange. The Alf Exchange gives you the opportunity to donate pre-loved bags from any brand (including Alf) in exchange for an Alf online voucher to use on a new bag. We then repurpose and distribute the bags to our charity partner Dress for Success, whose services provide direct support and resources to Australian women re-entering the workforce.
