Changing Bag

(11 Posts)

Been looking for a while at changing bags as already got DD who will be 3 when baby arrives and is already potty trained. Was thinking if a bramley tote from pink lining but now I'm not sure. Can anyone recommend a nice changing bag that's not going to cost fortune and is relatively stylish. Not 100% sure if we're going to find out what sex DC2 is yet so neutral colours if possible

Pacapod fan here. Canvas or leather depending on budget...

I use a catch kidston oil cloth rucksack. So much easier than a changing bag especially if you plan to babywear. I will have an almost 2yo and a newborn come May and plan to carry on using the trusty old rucksack!

I've gone for this babymel bag. My sister in law had one with her daughter and I was amazed by how immaculate it always looked. It seemed so hard wearing and aged so well. I had a silver cross change bag for DC1 and it just didn't last if I'm honest.

Tkmaxx do a good one, it was 25.00, not adorned with cupcakes or yummy mummy, various straps and lots of pockets. Its by skip hop.

I've just bought a babymel one in faux tan leather - it actually looks just like a large handbag but has the integral insulated bottle pockets/change mat etc. I'm really pleased with it and it isn't really girly so DH won't be ashamed to be seen with it. I got 20% off mine in mamas and papas so a good deal too.

I had a Skip Hop changing bag which was very attractive and had all the pockets and bells and whistles. But It was cumbersome and when I realised I never used all the pockets and all I did was chuck it in the (enormous) basket under the pram when I was out, I ended up selling it and using my normal messenger style bag from Animal!

I got This Storksak when I had ds 10 years ago and still use it when we travel as it is a bit of a tardis!

It managed all the kit for twins until they were beyond toilet training too. Lovely bag.

I've just bought myself a nice rucksack, have been using my babymel changing bag for the last ten months and absolutely hate it, was great when I was breastfeeding, but now my DD is on formula and solids it is rubbish, not enough room, and the compartments are crap.

Just seen the 'not cost a fortune' bit of your initial post. The Storksak is pricey, but has lasted and has lots of use.
