It looks a lot more expensive than it actually is, I had a number of compliments on it in baby clubs, mother and toddler groups, etc. It could be mistaken for a large handbag, (although my husband was not so pleased about this when he was carrying it). It has plenty of compartments for everything and they are all easy to access. Plenty big enough to hold sets of nappies in 3 different sizes, (for my 3 children still in nappies!). It is not so easy to clean though, as it cannot be washed in the washing machine like my previous one could, I have managed to give it a good wipe and found this mostly does the job.
I love change bags, this is the 2nd one ive bought and my baby is only 5 months old! Oops.
I chose this one from next because I thought it was excellent value for money and also looked on trend too!
The bag was £25 which I think is quite cheap for a change bag. You can get it in a variety of different colors.
The bag comes complete with a mess bag for used wipes/bibs etc, and a change mat in the matching fabric to the bag.
I found all the pockets the bag has really useful. It has 5 pockets on the outside. A really big one at the back, two small ones with flaps that close with Velcro on the front and then one either side on the edge. Inside is a key holder for your keys which I found great as I lose mine at the best of times but when I have baby brain I'm even worse!.
Inside are also 5 other pockets where you can be organized and separate out your things such as nappies, wipes, nappy bags. There is then plenty of room left for anything else you need. I take lots of things around with me and I always have room to spare so it is definitely a good size.
I found the fact that the bag has 2 different straps very useful. It has handles so it can be carried in your hand and also has a detachable strap which you can use to carry on your sholder or it can hang off the pram.
I have used my bag for about 3 months now and never had any problems it is still in immaculate condition. The inside can just be wiped down if you have any spills and the fabric on the outside is tough, I'm not very careful with mine and it get dragged around all over the place and is still in good condition.
I think that the next change bag represents great value for money and is an up to date nice looking fashion accessory at the same time.
I bought this changing bag when I was around 7 months pregnant, I am glad I started buying early and being organised as I actually had to wait nearly 8 weeks for this changing bag to be delivered off the next website! This bag was worth waiting for though, it has everything I need and looks really stylish too.
This is quite a large changing bag, and is black with big white spots. It has two handles to carry about with your hands, or it has a long strap which is designed to go over your shoulder, or over the handle bars of your pram. I mostly just put this under the pram in the basket, it isn't too large to go in there.
There are so many pockets and compartments to this bag! On the side there are two which I usually put my bottles in, one on the front with a zip, and inside also has a zip pocket. There are also lots of pockets inside which are so handy to separate bits and bobs so you know exactly where everything is, like I put nappy bags in one, socks in another, bibs in another. The pockets are each big enough to fit around 4 nappies in to, so very spacious. Also on the front are two velcro shutting pockets which are great for bibs, rolled up muslin squares etc. so there are always easy to get to.
One of the best things about this bag, is that it comes with a fold up changing mat. This is so handy when out and about, and you don't want to change your baby on the grass outside or on a dirty surface! It is a nice size to change my baby on, but does take up a lot of room in the bag. It is wipe clean, and is also black with white spots on one side and just plain white on the side you change them on.
This also comes with a thermal bottle holder. This is quite a small bottle holder, my nuk bottles fit in there very snugly, but my tommee tippee ones which are a lot wider, do not fit in at all, so you do need small slim bottles to be able to use it.
It also comes with a 'messy' bag which looks just like a big purse, and this is great as I can fit my baby wipes in here, a nappy and nappy bags, so I can use this just in my handbag if I'm just out for a few hours, and have it with me in case of a nappy change, it has everything I will need in it. It is great to use for your dirty washing and nappies too if that's what you want to use it for! This is also black with white spots and closes with a zip, so everything matches! If you want to look at this bag on the next website, in the picture it shows the accessories (changing mat, bottle holder and messy bag) in black, but they are actually all matching to the bag, black with white spots.
This changing bag can also fit lots of changes of clothes in the middle of it despite all the inside pockets being loaded up with stuff! It is nice and light weight, and I have had so many comments on what a nice bag it is when out and about.
I would highly recommend this changing bag, I have no problems with it whatsoever, and for £25, for all what you get, it was a bargain, just a shame I had to wait so long for it, but wasn't a problem as it arrived before baby did, so used it as a hospital bag too!
Thanks for reading my review x
