Shopping for a changing bag when I was pregnant was something I was very excited about. I really loved using all the changing bags when I nannied as my families all had such great taste when it came to changing bags. I had a few brands in mind such as PacaPod and Belle Beau but I just wasn't sure what I really wanted.
When Andy and I were shopping when over in the Isle of Man for my mums wedding we went in to TKMax because I love their baby section and we came across this Skip*Hop changing bag which I really liked and went back for in the end due to not being able to stop thinking about it. We had a look at the compartments and I loved the fact it had a big strap and small leather handles which matched our pram. I also really loved the fact it had buggy straps which you can clip on to the handle to take the weight off of the bigger strap, This is very handy so that the bag doesn't keep slipping down while you walk.
The bag itself is very spacious and has plenty of pockets with two on the front which I tend to keep my muslin's and anti-bac hand gel and my feeding blanket. Also on the front is a zip compartment which I keep all the smaller items such as nappy cream and dummies that way I'm not looking at the bottom of the bag for them in a hurry.
Next is the main compartment which has so much room for spare change of clothes and a few toys to keep Ethan entertained when we are out and about. There are two pockets which I store wipes and nappy bags in one and nappies in the other. I really like the layout of this bag because I know where everything is without taking everything out to get to things I need.
On each side of the bag there are two bottle pockets also which are very handy for extra storage as I am breast feeding at the moment I haven't used these but they will come in handy for snacks and soppy cups when the time comes.
The back of the bag has a big deep pocket which I keep the changing matt and a small pouch with extra nappies in i find this useful because it gives more space in the main compartment.
I really love the Blue Strip print of the bag and the soft brown leather tan handles really set it off. It is really well made and I will continue to get plenty of use out of it. I love the thought that has gone in to the space and storage of the bag making it lightweight even when full to the brim with baby must haves.
This is not a collaboration I purchased this changing bag myself. Thoughts are also my own.
