I'm Lucia. I'm a busy part-time working mummy of two under two, so a
great changing bag is essential to make carrying our everyday essentials
easier. I've been using the Babymel changing bag for a little while
now and was very impressed with the functionality of the bag - plus the face that, even
though it looks very much like a traditional changing bag, it is very
stylish in its design and neutral colours.
It has a large main compartment that also has three large pockets inside so plenty of space to store all your essential bits and bobs. It also had a lovely matching water-resistant changing mat for on the go, and an insulated bottle bag, which I found very handy for keeping bottles warm or cold.
The bag has a long shoulder or body strap, or the short handles to fasten it to a pram handlebar to make it hands-free. The nice big pocket on the front was also very handy for all of my things, like keys, phone and purse, making them easier to find rather than having to put them in with everything else.
Both of my boys are still in nappies so plenty of space is a must and this bag had lots of room for double-of-everything nappies, clothes and food. It's also in a lovely wipeable fabric to make it easy to keep clean if you have any accidents or little fingers get hold of it.
The only thing that let this bag down for me compared to others I've used are the straps that you use to carry the bag on the pram handle. They aren't very long, which made it awkward to get in and out of the bag if you were carrying it this way. Other than that, there wasn't anything I could fault.
My overall conclusion is that this is a very spacious bag, easy to keep clean with its beautiful water-resistant fabric, practical with its nice fold-away changing mat and very reasonably priced. I love it!
The Molly changing bag is priced at £48 and is available in Pink Floral Dot, Grey
Stripe and Navy Pixel Dot, as well as the Grey Floral Dot tested.
