Baby changing bags can be a cool accessory as well as a necessary one. There are many styles available and there are different types as well. The main two types of changing bags are satchels and rucksacks. Either one is suitable but depends on how you will prefer to use them. The main considerations, however, will be how much they can carry and whether they will last. You may also attach importance to how it is going to look.
Satchel type changing bags can be carried over one shoulder or slung across the chest and over the opposite shoulder. It will hang down to your side or front allowing easy access in a hurry. The rucksack type bag will be positioned behind your back. For many this is the best option as it allows their hand and arms to be free whilst dealing with a baby, buggy and other things. It may not suit everyone though, as you will have to take it off to gain access.
When choosing a baby changing bag look for something that is made with good durable materials and don’t have weak, flimsy fastenings. Many materials look nice for effect but are a pain to clean. A changing bag that can easily be wiped clean will be a benefit once you start using it. As already mentioned, make sure the bag you choose is able to carry all of your bits. Changing bags are often designed with some great features, including handy pockets for storing parents’ things, such as mobile phones, keys and so on. You could even have a toddler back pack when your child gets older and they can carry their own things around with them. That will make them feel independent whilst giving you less to carry.
Often it is the case that a parent will choose a baby changing bag that they think suits their baby. It is actually the case that a baby simply will not care what the bag looks like, so choose something that you like. There are some funky baby changing bags out there so maybe you can find a bag that matches your style of dress or personality. If that is one with baby-like appeal then that’s fine. Do consider, though, any man that may be using the bag as something too girly may put him off.
