Hi all, any advice on the best changing backpacks? Set on having a backpack but can't see that any are particularly better than others at the moment so reviews very welcome! Thanks x

It doesn't have to be a specific changing one, it can just be any old back pack although pockets are helpful. I had a laptop style bag which I used with the pushchair and then a rucksack for when I used the sling. I kept them both prepared with a few spare nappies, wipes & a change of clothes in so I could just grab whichever one I needed. Just make sure it's wipeable!

You don’t need a specific changing back pack and there’s no such thing really as a good one versus a bad one! Just buy a bag you like the look of and that’s big enough to fit everything in. Changing mat you can buy seperately, I got a great one for £10 for Amazon that also has a handy pouch to hold nappies. Then you need to make sure you have space for wipes, bottles, spare outfit and maybe your stuff too if you don’t want a seperate bag. Job done! No need to overthink it.

Hi there! I tried a few specific changing backpacks before finding what I think is the PERFECT one from a company called Eloise & Lolo. Things I like - insulated bottle pocket on the front, wipes pocket on the side, little zip pocket for phone on the back and a zip in the back so you can access things at the bottom without taking everything out.

FYI I also tried the Pacapod Hastings but found the pods too big and couldn’t fit anything else in

Also tried the Skip Hop Forma and found it infuriating that the only opening is at the top so you have to empty it out to get stuff from the bottom...

I also tend to disagree that you don’t need a specific “changing” one - I don’t find ordinary backpacks have enough separate pockets and compartments!

I got a knuddlestuff changing backpack from Amazon. It has a side pocket for wipes and insulated pocket for a bottle. I got on really well with it.

I've got the YuHan Oxford Baby Diaper Bag from amazon and love it. I had something else first, can't remember what but didn't get on with it at all! It was only £25 but still looks brand new 18 months later.
