“ Brand: Babymel / Type: Changing Bag „
I bought lots of changing bags! I also sold lots on but ended up keeping this one and my storksak so this one obviously passed my test!
I have this bag in a pewter colour. It is a lovely design, it has stitched, quilted hearts all over but the hearts are stitched in a very similar colour to the bag, meaning the hearts are not that distinct and my husband is happy to use it!
It was a reasonable price from John Lewis £45. It has a nice long, thick strap which you can extend as required. The bag can then easily hang off the buggy or be carried comfortably as a shoulder bag. It doesn't slip off your shoulder like some bags do, I think this is due to the wide strap. One of the ingenious parts of this bag is the Velcro fasteners on the bag strap which means you can strap the bag onto the pushchair handle which is a nice feature, I found them a bit fiddly so preferred to just use the strap!
The bag itself is very roomy. I can fit a lot of stuff in, and I by no means travel light! One of the best features in the insulated side pocket. This pocket is accessed from the outside of the bag by a zip and inside is insulated with silver insulated plastic. This means you can pop a hot bottle of milk in and zip it up and it keeps the temperature well. I used to pop one in before I left the house and then an hour later (my formula could be left made up for 2 hours)" it would be just right, so would have lost a little heat but be the right temperature. I don't know how long something would stay warm for as never tried using the pouch for any longer, but I would imagine a warm purée would stay reasonably warm for 3 hours so could be handy for lunch as you would be able to fit a small tub in. I used the tommee tippee closer to nature bottles but it would hold a longer bottle also.
Inside the bag you get a changing mat, this is of a good size and folds up neatly and secures with Velcro. This is wipe clean and I found this to be non staining!
You get five internal elasticated pockets, which are roomy, and fit bottles, the mat, spare clothes etc in.
There are two internal zip pockets, handy for phone and wallet! The lining is wipe clean.
The bag is 33cm high, 44cm wide and 15cm deep.
The bag is very lightweight which is a great bonus. A lot of bags I used were just so heavy before they were even full, and then I would struggle to carry them and my little one in his carseat etc. This one was just so lightweight it never caused a problem. It doesnt weigh a lightweight pushchair down, It came with a lovely squishy heart keying also which was a nice added extra.
I would recommend this to all!
