Changing Bag SOS

Why is this so hard! Need recommendations pleeeeeeease.

I have a Bugaboo Bee and want a changing bag that:

Clips to the buggy
Is not a messenger bag
Is not some cutesy 'Yummy Mummy' horror show in pink
100 quid or less
Will sustain a lot of international travel

I can't find anything that has good reviews!


Power of MN - help!

I had a Babymel changing bag with DS3 which I really liked. There's lots of different patterns/styles.

I wouldn't get one.

I am a bit of a bag obsessive and bought a storksac which I never used. I got an anya change bag in the end but again rarely used it.

I would get a longchamp le pliage or something.

Probably not what you wanted to hear!

Hmm the clipping to the buggy bit is what is swaying me to the actual changing bag rather than a bag.

Off for another look at stork sack

Samsonite do a few but I don't know if any brands actually clip onto buggies?

Babymel! What is wrong with me.

Storksak sell clips that velcro onto the buggy handle so you can clip most normal bags on. I used them with an oil cloth Storksak bag though as I liked the various compartments.

Ooh I just googles Babymel - I see what you mean. Nope, no help here, sorry!

See here -essential with a Bee as everything would just slide down the handlebar.

I use these with a bee

Oops, that didn't work- they are called happy mummy hook and stroll.

Buy a naffly named 'MummyClip" from JojoMamanbebe and use an existing handbag. Or an old one.

I use ancient Mulberry and is great.

I have a Radley changing bag. It clips into my bee

OpheliasWeepingWillow Wed 17-Apr-13 21:06:28

Argh! Why are all changing bags so grim....

Wah. I wish the reviews of the bugaboo changing bag were not so bad.

I have loads of 'normal' bags but really really want a lovely proper changing bag I don't know why

OpheliasWeepingWillow Wed 17-Apr-13 21:07:55

I already have about a thousand mummy clips (who names these things?) but the bag just ends up bashing my knees.

OhHullitsOnlyMeYoni Wed 17-Apr-13 21:12:19

Honestly it won't make a bit of difference having a specialised one. Unless you go for one with thermal bottle warming pockets. The only good thing about mine is I don't care if I spill something on it as it isn't really 'mine' and can be bunged in the wash.

I've had two of these and really rate them. Roomy, wipe-clean, plenty of pockets inside and out, come with a matching changing mat. They're about £45 so not silly money, and come with clips to attach to the buggy.

Aha! I like.
