Reading Time: 2 minutesWhilst a newborn baby’s needs might be very simple; milk, a nappy change and sleep, the list of baby essentials a new parent needs is endless! A backpack/nappy bag is the perfect solution to store everything you will need throughout the day. It’ll allow you to keep your hands free for juggling the baby, navigating busy Hong Kong streets, getting in and out of a taxi, not to mention holding on for dear life as a mini bus zooms on its way! We’ve rounded up our favourite picks, perfect for gifting or treating yourself too.
