The changing bag. It’s one of the baby pieces of kit that’s going to be around for years. So you’ll want to find one that not only works for your fam, but also one that suits your style & life. Like everything in the baby world, there’s loads to choose from, so we’re making your life easier with our handy guide. Sorry, the actual nappy changing is your job…
Two under two
Whether you’re giving your lil’ rugrat a sibling, or planning a second one straight after this bubba (you brave mumma), picking a bag that fits the bottles to the weaning stuff, is a must. We’re currently in love with the Tiba + Marl RAF Weekender Holdall which has five interior pockets for organisation and is large enough to stash their stuff. Oh, and we’ve also got a soft spot for this cool, Pacapod Classic Utility Mirano Changing Bag which is deceptively big - think Mary Poppins style - meaning there's loads of space for everything. And let's not forget the detachable inside changing and feeder pods too. Cool.
Adventure is your thang
Love to stick bubs in a carrier & go exploring? We hear ya. Whether it’s hiking up hills or walking to the shops (er, the latter's more our thang), you need a bag that’s going to fit into this. A changing backpack (yes, there’s such a thing) is a perfect choice. With all the compartments you’d find in a ‘standard’ changing bag, this lil’ miracle is awesome for hauling onto your back & balancing out the weight of bubs on your front. We love how it means your hands are free - also awesome for airport trips when you need to grab passports in a hurry… Pst, this little backpack beaut from Jem and Bea is our serious changing bag crush at the mo, race you to the checkout…
One for them
Sharing the parenting jaunts? You’re going to need a bag that your other half won’t mind being seen out and about in. Stop the ‘I’m not carrying that around,’ comments quickly with a unisex bag. We love the Babymel
Robyn Convertible Backpack, which is large enough for all your kids' bits and neutral enough for your partner. There goes all the excuses about not carrying it about. #sorrynotsorry.
...and one for you
Having a baby doesn’t mean that you have to lose your sense of style - trust me, I’m living this first hand. Thankfully, there’s an awesome range of changing bags that have been designed to look great, even when babes isn’t in tow. I’m totally in love with the JEM + BEA Jemima Change Bag, (hint, hint other half) which looks like a designer lovely but has all the baby compartments you need too. Shhh… you can even use it as a laptop bag when your mini-me isn’t with you.
Quick & easy
So, sometimes you don’t want to be carting everything but the kitchen sink around, especially when you’re just popping out to the shops. That’s where a stroller organiser comes in handy. Designed to sit at the front of the buggy, this Skip Hop Stroller Organiser is big enough to store a bottle, nappy & wipes. You may even get your purse in there too. Alternatively these Skip Hop Grab & Go wet/dry bags fit a load of nappies and small enough to er, grab & go.
So there you have it. A guide on all the awesome bags around. But there’s loads more… just check out our featured products below.
