I have started looking at, what I considered one of the easiest items to buy - a changing bag. Little did I know the world of choice (and pain) I was about to encounter. Shoulder bags/ totes/ backpacks ranging from £20 to £220! Insulated this and waterproof that. A fashion accessory or something practical that OH could use. I am totally befuddled!
Can anyone recommend a bag they have or have seen? I am looking to ideally spend no more than £50 maximum (although the cheaper the better) and I am not that fussed about looking overly fashionable. I think the bag has to at least fit over a pram so totes are out. My pram is dark blue/denim colour so red/blue/black/grey works best for me.
Do you use a changing bag as well as or instead of a handbag?
Is this the bag you use for LO in hospital or do you need a slightly bigger holdall for that as well?
Is it really necessary or could you buy a messenger bag, insulated bottle holder from a camping store and portable changing map from anywhere!?!?
Location: We are from the UK but live in Spain. Hope to move to Gibraltar soon!
Its no help to you but luckily my changing bag came with the pram - its plain black with the Silver Cross motif on it - it solved all the dilemas & saved me a fortune! I think the Yummy Mummy bags are gorgeous though, and I might treat myself to one of those later on or ask for one for Christmas depending on how much I use the black one.
I went baby shopping yday and saw JJ Cole bags. Not sure if they have them in UK (sorry if I am not helping at all), but they were $65 so about £40 and they were a few designs including black and grey, had an over shoulder strap (I want hubby to be able to use it too) and seemed to have everything else I will need.
I also wanted to know if ppl tend to use these as hospital bags too, or do I need yet another bag for that???
