Stylish and functional changing bag - does such a thing exist?

Hello there,

I am looking for a new changing bag. My current one is a massive Avent thing, with a massive flap and it's a knightmare.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Money is not an issue (but £100 is the limit) and definatly flap-less. But, since this will - for a certain amount of time at least - replace my very stylish oversized butter-soft leather bag, I'd like it to be as stylish as possible whilst remaining a functional changing bag.

Any help/recommendations greatly appreciated

I've got the raspberry lin and Leo bag (it's on blooming marvellous website- you can get 10 percent discount through mn)It was £90 but I can't remember if that was with the discount. It's leather, comes in brown, turquoise, pink or red. Comes with a detachable strap so I put that over my pushchair handles but if I'm out without DD I take it off and use as normal (but v big)handbag.

Do you really need a changing bag? Why not something like this to stuff in your existing bag?

Great ideas from you both - the lin&leo bag is gorgeous! But, love the fold-up option that fits in my existing bag too! Thx!

Looked in our local baby shop and they had bags by a company called OI OI - anyone any experience of these?

I used an Oi Oi bag (I think the model was Hobo - zip across the top; no flap) - and loved it. Obviously not up to the standards of a lovely soft leather handbag, and so I did sometimes go for the nappy / wipes etc stuffed into normal handbag option - but would thoroughly recommend. Great range of colours (which change quite frequently) too, so no danger of seeing loads of people with the same bag.

just sling a changing mat in the lovely leather bag

oioi are good though, so are skiphop if you see them

I will look out for skiphop MrsB - thx - and may opt for the oioi. (I do love my existing bag but sometimes it can be hard to find things straight away when you have an outsized bag - out and about with a 1 year old, and a new baby, I think I will need things faster to hand)

Hi had an oioi hobo bag too. Loved it, and still use it if I need a bigger bag at all. Would definitely recommend them

Ok, I've read the rest. Guessing the op is no longer interested.
