Thanks to the snow test driving prams didn’t take place as I didn’t want to venture out. I hate being cold with a passion. So from the warmth of my home I went internet browsing looking for really important accessories that I need for my baby. A changing bag of course!
My first choice would be a Hermes Birkin bag, maybe slightly over priced and completely impractical but who cares it’s absolutely beautiful! Priced at a small down payment on a house, I am defiantly worth it! Come on its not everyday you push a baby out your lady bits, I need to be rewarded! Plus I need look good as a new mummy around town.
Ok so if im not getting a Birkin I could possibly work with a Mulberry bag.
Ok, ok… so maybe the Mulberry bag wont be very practical either, so here we go with real “baby changing bags”
Working at the studio I obviously get to see lots of babies. Lots of lovely clothes and cute accessories always stand out to me but I can’t say I have ever really noticed a changing bag and thought ah wow that’s cute. I done a quick search and all I could see was lots of horrible, geometric prints and de-saturated colours.
One bag that I have always liked was my sister in laws bugaboo bag in black leather. I love the simplicity of it and of course black leather pretty much goes with everything.
Would it be completely ridiculous to pick a pram over a changing bag? Maybe.
I was also recommended by one of my lovely mummy readers to check out the PacaPod at John Lewis
Do you have a handbag and a changing bag? or does your changing bag become your handbag? Oh lord all these things to think about!
This has got me thinking do I want a changing bag that looks like a handbag or just a baby changing looking type bag.
When looking at the Pacapod the last image made me realise I want a plain simple bag that Mr C can carry too! Having looked at lots of sites mothercare do a really good variety. In the low end range there are some nice plain bags for less than £40.
However the messenger bag does remind me of year 6 at school with my first “record bag” ha ha
Most brands do really nice bags that compliment their prams. I think I will be sticking to the same brand just for ease as i know i could be searching forever. However if you do want to look for something a little bit different, other places where you can find a good variety of changing bags are:
So it looks like one needs to decide on a pram before I carry on because so far the only bag i really like is the bugaboo changing bag. I just had a quick look at the iCandy bag and I could live with that too it looks really practical.
