Attention all pregnant ladies...this is important! It’s part of the few key purchases that will really make a difference in the early days and will continue to impact you over the next 2+ years!
Thankfully there are so many stylish changing bags out there that the decision now is as much about your personal style and taste, as it is about being super practical for you and your family!
Here are some things to consider when you are thinking about buying a changing bag:
Is it unisex?
Not just for your little future son or daughter, but does it work as a bag that both you and your partner are happy to wear? Lots of dads are reluctant to wear brightly colored changing bags complete with kiddie patterns… some dad friendly options are often black or darker colours – if it looks like it could be a cool sports bag, then you are onto a winner!
Is it practical?
Tiba + Marl changing bags come with a changing mat as standard, they also have a thermal bottle holder keeping bottles either cold or hot. Tick, Tick. Have a think about just how much you would like to take with you, if you are the type to take the kitchen sink (just incase) then opt for a bigger bag! The fabric is key too – is it wipeable? Does it have compartments to help you stay organized?
Does it have a life beyond baby?
If you love your changing bag, you will want to keep using it beyond when your babies still need one. Tiba + Marl’s Weekender doubles as a weekend travel bag, a sports bag, and perfect for twins and all the extras you need to carry around. The Elwood backpack makes a nifty laptop bag too, just leave the changing mat at home!!
Mix practicality and style to ensure you’ve got the right bag for you. If you are worried about the price tag, go for something that you’ll use long after babies are out of nappies. Honestly, when you find the one you love, you’ll never look back!!
What's your favourite bag??!
