I used a free changing bag that I got with my travel system for a few months but once I started needing to take out small toys/rattles and spare clothes I just needed something bigger.
The Summer Infant changing bag was one of the biggest I could find. I was horrified to be honest at the price of some 'designer' changing bags. I found this bag for £25 online.
It has two end pockets which are a good size and you can easily fit a bottle in them. Inside is a zip pocket to one side and an elasticated open pocket the other side. At the ends inside are also two small elasticated pockets which can also be used for bottles and makes sure they stay upright.
On the outside is a pocket either side which are of a good size (I keep my babys 'red book' inside one so I always have it on me but it is away from the inside incase a bottle leaks). It has two handles which are well padded and comfortable to grip and a long adjustable strap for either shoulder carrying or can be hung over the buggy.
It came with a wipe clean changing mat and small plastic wallet with a zip. I can't remember what this is for but I have always used it for soiled clothes or nappy bags if there was no where to dispose of a nappy near.
One of the best things about this bag is that it is really easy to clean, the surface is very easily wiped clean but at the same time feels soft. It has a very dark brown and cream pattern. I deliberately looked for a bag which didn't have the flap over top as I have always found it much more convenient to just undo a zip and find what I want without having to faff around moving the flap out of the way and then undoing a zip.
I now have a toddler and a newborn and as an example I can fit in to it the following:
5 toddler nappies
5 size 3 nappies
A spare bodysuit for each child
2 spare baby sleepsuit
Spare trousers for toddler
Spare socks for both
Pack of nappy bags
Full packet of wipes
2 muslin squares
Small bottle of hand sanitiser
Bottle of juice for toddler
Tomme Tippee bottle warmer (bit like a thermos, quite bulky)
Packet of crisps
Small colouring book and crayons
Small pack of tissues
2 cotton bibs
Toddler gloves and hat
This is everything I usually have in it when I go out, so as you can see it holds alot and I am sure I have forgotten a few things. This is just using the inside space, there are the 4 outside pockets also!
I think you would be hard pushed to find a bigger changing bag with so much space for the same price. Even if I was given an expensive designer bag I would still use this as it just holds everything I need it to.
