Regardless of whether you walk, drive, use a pushchair or babywear there's one thing that all mums need; a changing bag. Travelling light when you have a baby is mission impossible as you find the need to pack for every possible situation.
There's cutesy changing bags, sporty changing bags, plain ones, patterned ones, designer ones etc. Sometime's however, you want a grown up bag. Something that looks good as well as being functional.
As a Babymoov Ambassador, I've been lucky enough to receive a Changing Bag City to review; the changing bag that looks like a handbag.
The bag features two sets of straps so you can grasp/grab it in your hand or over your arm and also has a large shoulder strap so you can wear it messenger style. They include a handy strap to attach it to your buggy/pram yet we haven't tested this out yet as we exclusively babywear.
Upon opening the changing bag you can't help but notice how wide it opens, perfect for packing it before you leave the house and whilst out and about it means, along with the double zip, easy access and less frantic stuffing/pulling and rummaging. With previous bags I've had to half empty it every time I wished to retrieve something from them!
The next thing you'll notice is the just how many pockets it has both inside and out, handy to keep things separate from the bulk of what you pack such as medications.
The most impressive feature of this bag for me though has to be the size, to be frank it's epic. I have very little ability to translate measurements from paper into my own head, they remain somewhat meaningless to me unless I physically get a tape measure out so I genuinely wasn't expecting a bag large enough for our needs as we cloth nappy, add to this the fact we don't drive so when we go out, we have one bag to pack for every eventuality until we get home again. The Changing Bag City pleasantly overwhelmed me, with space, just take a look at the picture below that lists everything I packed into it on our first outing with space still left over to find things without the need to unpack everything all flustered and sweary!
For the stat hungry it's 34x42x16 cm and weighs in at 1.4kg.
|(Also managed to pack an extra pocket nappy and a Hudl 2!)|
What more could you ask for from a bag, it ticks the boxes of being large enough, well made and it looks good; it feels luxury and feminine yet remains functional. It could even be used sans childrens as an overnight bag or for work. Total win.
