Yummy Mummy Bag
Advantages: Good quality and size
When I received a free changing bag upon joining the Boots Parenting club I thought that'll do and it did for the first few months. I then started longing for something a bit bigger and nicer looking! A friend had a Yummy Mummy bag which I really liked the look of and so I had a look at their range and chose myself a Yummy Mummy bag.
The Changing Bag
Made by Pink Lining it comes with their signature bright pink lining which you would never guess at from the outside of the bag. They do a range of fashionable designs which they regularly update but the basic styles remain similar.
On the Outside
On my bag there is a popper pocket on the front and 2 elasticated end pockets, these are great for my phone, purse and keys which I want to be able to grab quickly without opening the main bag. The front popper pocket has a cupcake motif and 'Yummy Mummy' embroidered on it.
On the Inside
The bag is very spacious and even with twins I manage to get everything I need in here. The lining is waterproof so even if you get caught in a storm you know the contents of your bag will remain dry. You have 2 insulated bottle pockets which are elasticated round the top and easy to get a bottle in and out of. The bag comes with a good quality padded changing mat which is good quality and mine is still looking like new after a year. Also included is a zipped wet bag, I use this to carry wipes in I have taken out of the packet to save carrying wipes round with me. They stay wet in this bag and it's easy to find. The bag also has a pocket for your mobile phone, a pen holder and a mirror as I guess a Yummy Mummy is expected to care what she looks like!
There is plenty of room in the bag for nappies, change of clothes, drink, snacks, etc. It still amazes me how much I need to take with me even for a short trip with the little ones, it is great to have a bag that I can leave packed with what I need ready just to pick up when I want to go out.
Carrying the bag
The bag has 2 short handles which popper together which are ideal for carrying the bag on your shoulder. It also has a detachable long strap which is adjustable and easily fits over the handle of my double side by side buggy. This was a good selling point for me as I can carry it on the buggy and then take it off and put it over my shoulder using the shorter handles without having to mess around adjusting the long one.
Price and Availabilty
I purchased my bag from John Lewis online for £75 with free standard delivery.
Would I recommend?
Yes, this bag is great quality and spacious enough to hold all that I need. Although expensive it will easily last through the 'Changing bag years'.
Summary: A spacious changing bag that will make you feel like a Yummy Mummy
