    What changing bag is everyone getting/got? I used the free boots one with DS and it served the purpose but this time I want something a bit more stylish! I really like the look of the pink lining ones and with the sale on at the moment I can just about justify the price! Are they well made and worth the money though? Anyone got any other suggestions? Xxx

    I was just discussing this on facebook. I'm on a budget so however well made it is I can't pay silly prices. I don't spend much on handbags so can't justify it however I look at it.
    The boots one is quite small now, think it used to be bigger? I might just look for a nice bag, not changing specific. I'm using cloth nappies so will be using wetbags inside the bag for used wipes and nappies anyway. As soon as, they call it a changing bag it shoots up in price!
    Each to their own though, most people seem to treat themselves to a fancy one. It's a week's food in my house though! :) x

    I'm a very girly person and bag mad anyway ha so I went for the babymoov baby chic one :) I love it!

    It is £40 but I got mine for £25 off eBay :) the yummy mummy ones are lovely but not my kind of style. And I agree I seen the boots ones and they do look a bit small? But then again I always go for big bags lol. Next so some lovely ones not too expensive and you could also have a look on eBay and get a bargain :) xx

    I bought a gorgeous black leather Radley handbag in the outlet shop in York. It's not a changing bag as such but is big enough and has loads of pockets and sections for all of baby's things. I LOVE handbags and just can't bring myself to carry a baby bag around with me for a year!!

    Hi Ammdaz!
    I bought a german make (well known out here!) and it goes really well with my pram. It has a really wide strap so very comfy, loads of space and comes with a changing mat and bottle warmer (and tonnes of pockets). What I also like is that you can zip off the front flap and buy a different one so you can have umpteen different bags if you want!! Wasn't cheap though................

    Ps. Sorry the link is in german but I think you get the idea!! :)

    I'm unsure on a changing bag as well! The boots one is ok, and hubby will probably use it but it is quite small. I've seen a kath kidston one I like, it's not a changing bag but its big enough. Need to have a proper look around though.

    Let me know which one u decide on! Xx

    I had a pink lining with my first and I love it. It's lasted over 18months and is still going well. I've just got an Il Tutto changing bag for this time as I wanted a new bag and hubby has brought it for me for my birthday. I use cloth nappies and with 2 I needed a bag with slightly more room for nappies. The Boots changing bag is quite small and we only used it as a back up x

    I got mine at the baby show for £30 I think it was... has a random stitching bit on it so is down as faulty - absolutely nothing wrong with it!! should be £70

    love it! I'm not overly girly but love anything nautical :)

    I'd try ebay for used ones maybe for a fraction of cost?

    I really wanted a Yummy Mummy bag but couldn't justify spending £80 !! Gutted that they now have a sale but I'm happy with the one I've got now. It's a Caboodle one and my pushchair for baba is red so it goes well :)

    This is gorgeous! And that's a great price. I can't tell from the pic, does it come with a big strap as well to hang over the pram handle? Xxx

    Yes it does come with a big strap :) it also has little hooks on the sides specially for clipping to the pram handles. That's the changing mat clipped on the front of the bag too which you can attach the main strap if your just quickly nipping out and don't need the whole thing. Here's some links watch the video on it :) xx

    I bought an expensive one iwth my first but basically mever used it.K find those bags so big. i now use a small cotton bag (where the nappies where in when I bought some cloth ones. Perfect size. Just big enough for a changing pad, a package of wipes, some cream and maybe 5 nappies.
