Babies have a lot of essentials that need to be taken with you when you are out & about such as nappies, wipes, bottles, toys, Totseat chair harness and a changing mat. A Baby change bag needs to be spacious, easy to carry and of course look good!
All Baby Bags have different features to suit a variety of needs. Before you buy, here are a few things to consider:
Think about what will be the right size for you. Do you need a baby bag or a compact change pad/wallet with just a few pockets?
Do you want a bag that can be used as a handbag later – or that doesn’t even look like a baby change bag? Pink Lining Yummy Mummys for example are gorgeous fasionable baby diaper bags.
There are larger designs like the Pink Lining Yummy Mummy or Skip Hop range for example, great for all the things twins or baby and toddlers both need, through to compact baby changing bags like the Caboodle collection. Great for quick trips and for visiting friends – take just the essentials in with you – nappies, wipes, creams.
Changing bags come with a number of features and extras, some to look for are:-
All our baby changing bags have separate changing mats included, just the things for keeping your little one clean and comfortable. They are washable, wipe-able and some even have antibacterial material. A separate changing mat can be swapped in and out of a variety of bags, or kept in the car for outings.
Do you want lots of pockets and compartments or a few?
Useful for keeping your and baby’s things separate. Things to look for:
Are the pockets net, see through or a different colour from the main bag?
Does it have bottle pockets? Are these insulated?
Is there an integral or separate pouch for wet nappies or wipes?
Is there a mobile phone pocket or somewhere for your personal items?
Is there a separate pocket for the change mat?
Is it washable / wipe-able?
Can it be cleaned inside and out?
Insulated bottle pocket
Useful for keeping bottles or food warm or cold while you are out and about.
How do you want to carry your bag?
Shoulder strap, backpack or to hang it over your stroller? Some bags can be carried in more than one way. Some bags have integrated stroller connectors, the Babymel range and the larger Wallaboo
