For me: The Elizabeth Changing Bag in Tan* £199.95
and for him: The Ashley Changing Bag in Blue* £70
Any mum will know that leaving the house with a new baby is like a military operation and ensuring you have absolutely everything for any eventuality is completely essential. When someone first mentioned to me that I should look into getting a changing bag for when little one arrives I was a little confused. Surely I could just stuff a few nappies and wet wipes into my Mulberry and we would be fine? Oh the naivety. As soon as we had had our first outing to town to grab a coffee with our five day old baby it soon became apparent just how valuable a changing bag really is.
With both your hands taken up with pushing your little darling around the place you really don’t have capacity to sling more than one bag over your shoulder or on the handlebar of your stroller. Therefore these Storksak changing bags are absolutely perfect for packing up all the essentials for baby and for mum and the big bonus is that they actually look just like a regular bag! The Elizabeth bag is a gorgeous tan washed leather with antique brushed hardware and is incredibly spacious with ten internal pockets and two outer pockets for popping in all your bits and pieces, even with room for my laptop! Inside you will find a fold-out changing mat, insulated bottle holder and a vanity case, all made out of wipe-clean material. The adjustable shoulder strap means you can wear it cross body, slung over your shoulder or remove it completely to just use the shorter handles for ease.
The Storksak range of changing bags is amazingly extensive – literally having a bag to suit every style, need and budget. And don’t worry, the Dads haven’t been forgotten either. Rob was kindly sent his very own changing bag too, much to his excitement. This canvas messenger bag is perfect for those daddy-daughter days out with a padded changing mat, insulated bottle holder and ample room for all the essentials. I love how understated and stylish the Storksak changing bags are which makes leaving my Mulberry at home that little bit easier!
