With you on this one, wan waterproof, light weight ans suitabl for me or DH to carry (not looking girlie) am really strugglin as most seem to be £40.00 upwards. Am thinking of JJB sports or somewhere similar to get a small rucksack...
I got some freebie changing bags, but never used them. What you will require out of your changing bag will depend on you and your baby. If you breastfeed you will need to carry very little to feed, if you plan to bottle feed you will have much more to carry. If your baby tends to muck clothes a lot then you will have to carry many more spare clothes, or if you use disposables/washable nappies. Also do you normally like to travel light or carry the kitchen sink? I personally got myself a normal bag that covered my needs, with 3 large compartments, that I will continue to use for years. IMHO would internet shop when I know what my requirements are.
Yukana if you join the Boots parenting club online you'll be sent a voucher that means if you buy a pack of nappies (pampers) you get a free changing bag worth about £35. I've got one and it's waterproof and looks ideal.
And when I was in hospital I might as well have taken a suitcase. I was in there for 6 days and ended up with about 4 big bags of crap stuff. It was actually mostly food and magazines. God I miss the days when I could read a magazine!
The picture's not working but this one's really cheap but depends if you like lilac (I'm also wondering if the price is a mistake ). I'm not sure what size it is as they come in loads of sizes, fabrics and colours. Here's some pictures.
I used this http://www.jojomamanbebe.co.uk/sp+Baby-Changing-Bags-Mats-Skip-Hop-Mini-Changers+A6735 It's fab. Small and excellent for traveling. Can use it one handed. Still good and baby is one. Have them at John Lewis.
I have a Tesco value holdall that was £5 for hospital similar to this
and a dispatch bag for £10 as a changing bag. It has a wipe clean inner so is fab as a change bag. I went for the pink one as I am the one that uses it the majority of the time and I liked the pockets better but I looked at this one for its DP friendliness
