“Whitehall by Pitterpac, £189

An eye-catching choice for the fashion-conscious, the woven plaited detail pays homage to luxe Italian designer Bottega Veneta. The mustard hue is on-trend this summer, yet also classic enough to stay stylish for years to come. This bag also has hidden depths, with all of baby’s essentials packed inside, including an elegant signature Pitterpac changing mat.” Junior Magazine

Successful Pitterpac Launch at The Baby Show

Pitterpac are very pleased to announce that they celebrated a very successful, but rather hectic, brand launch at The Baby Show Earls Court this weekend. Doors opened to the public and trade on Friday 26th October, allowing consumers the chance to check out the latest Parent and Baby products to hit the UK market. The Pitterpac stand mirrored the brands sleek and stylish aesthetic, leaving the bags to add a pop of colour to their surroundings.

 

 

From day one, Pitterpac were overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and love for every member of the Pitterpac leather changing bag range.  Feedback from customers was extremely positive, with The Whitehall leather changing bag being a firm favourite and best seller. Many loved the pop of colour that the mustard colour tone offered and felt it was a perfect accompaniment to their Autumn/Winter range.

 

 

The Ettington and The Warwick leather baby bags accompanied The Whitehall down the official Baby Show catwalk every day at 11am, with a roaring endorsement from the audience and a very enthusiastic nod of approval from Sam Shorten, the Baby Show stylist.

 

Everyone who visited the stand not only fell in love with our fresh and fashionable styling, but also appreciated the fantastic quality of the leather and practical wipe clean, water resistant interior offered in a Pitterpac bag. We even had some child free ladies purchase the bags who wanted to use their Pitterpac bag as a travel accessory instead!

 

 

Many parents purchased a second changing mat organiser with their changing bag to keep a spare in the car, to leave with childminders or even as a gift for expectant friends. Our multi-pocketed changing mat was also a huge hit with grandparents, wanting to get organised for when they are in charge of child care.  All Pitterpac fans were pleased to hear that the plastic lining of the changing mat is BPA free so there’s no nasty chemicals next to baby’s skin.

 

 

We have even gained a number of Celebrity Pitterpac fans who left the show proud owners of a luxury leather Pitterpac Bag.

 

After talking to Pitterpac fans at the Show about their fashion wants and style needs, are now looking to expand the range with additional colours and new designs so keep your eyes peeled!

What should you pack in your Pitterpac Changing Bag?

As a new mum there are hundreds of questions about the new routines and day to day jobs you’ll face. One question we are asked many times is ‘what should a new mum pack in their Pitterpac Leather Changing Bag?’

 

Well, we have discussed this issue with a number of experienced mums and we’ve come up with what we hope is a helpful guide.

 

 

Essential ‘Can’t leave without’ items:

 

  1. Nappies. Always take more than you think you’ll need. You never know just when your newborn will surprise you!
  2. Nappy wipes. These aren’t only perfect for nappy changes but are a heaven sent when needing to wipe your hands, remove milk stains from your clothes or even wipe over restaurant high chair tables.
  3. Nappy cream, and any travel sachets of medicine that your child has been recommended by their doctor.
  4. Nappy bags to dispose of your nappies in a sanitary way

 

Don’t forget all of the items above will fit perfectly inside our innovative Pitterpac Changing Mat Organiser, that has three pockets for your wipes, nappies and ointments.

 

Other items we highly recommend:

  1. A change of outfit for your child.
  2. Hand sanitiser- perfect for when you can’t get to a wash station after a nappy change
  3. Muslin cloths. Brilliant for spilt milk, spit up or even as a quick and easy breastfeeding cover
  4. Baby sunblock and sun hat in warmer months
  5. Baby blanket and a warm hat in the cooler months
  6. Baby’s bottle – can be kept warm in Pitterpac’s insulated bottle holder
  7. Formula if using
  8. Nipple pads, nipple cream and sanitary wear for new mums
  9. A small toy for easy distraction
  10. A comforter, maybe a dummy or a favourite cuddly toy
  11. If baby is on solids, a pack of baby food, baby spoon and some easy snacks for on the go
  12. A bib or two
  13. Water and a snack for you
  14. Scratch mittens as new born baby’s nails can be razor sharp
  15. Tissues – multiple uses!
  16. Your purse, phone, keys and other personal essentials
  17. Your Pitterpac Accessory Pac with multi-pocketed changing mat
  18. Emergency contact numbers
  19. And of course your digital camera for taking all of those special moments with your precious bundle!

 

You’ll be happy to know that all of the items above fit perfectly inside any Pitterpac leather changing bag, thanks to the clever elasticated pockets, that are wipe clean and water resistant.  All of our bags also have two zip closed pockets for your essentials that you want to store securely. Check out the ‘Look inside’ tag on any of our web pages to see for yourself.

 

You may feel overwhelmed by the amount that you need to take with you on a trip out with your baby. However, don’t forget if you’re just popping to the shop or to the park for a quick visit, our Changing Mat Organiser features a handy Velcro strap that allows you to attach it to your pram and travel light with just your nappies, mat, wipes and creams.

 

See for yourself just how much we managed to pack into our Pitterpac Pockets, with lots of room left in the main compartment for all of your extras!
