Oh goodness, how excited can one be over a mere changing bag? Answer – very! Lets face it, theres no escaping lugging these bad boys around when we have toddlers in tow!
Up until very recently I would use my lovely navy changing bag from Pink Lining to carry all the little tykes odds and sods. With plans of travel in mind, I felt that I wanted to get something a little more practical and a little more grown up to use when going on plane journeys. My little man isn’t getting any lighter, so I felt a nappy changing rucksack would be the best way to go. After a little bit of internet browsing, I decided upon the Lekebaby Multifunctional Nappy Changing Backpack with Changing Mat from Amazon.
The bag is available in a choice of unisex grey or black, is made of a high-grade 300D oxford fabric and is water repellent. It feels like a quality purchase and looks incredibly stylish, not like a changing bag at all. In fact, my husband could quite comfortably walk around with and it would look just like a normal everyday rucksack.
What I like best about this bag is the multitude of pockets to keep your belongings organised and the fact that it is incredibly roomy. It has two main pockets, one which you could keep baby bits and the other for Mummy bits.
Overall, there are 13 interior pockets and 5 exterior pockets for all your essentials. There are bottle pockets at either side of the backpack to hold bottles for parents and it has two insulated baby/child bottle pockets in the interior. A small, foldable changing mat is also provided inside the bag.
The bags straps are thick and sturdy, with padding also being added to the back and handle for extra comfort. An extra large hidden pocket can also be found on the back, perfect for hiding your wallet or phone.
I chose the black option but it would be best described as a mottled dark grey, which looked nice with the light grey interior. It is a fairly large bag, but this suited me just fine. I think it will be a brilliant bag to use as a carry on for the plane and I am actually quite happy to use it for day-to-day use. On the product reviews, somebody described it as the swiss army knife of the bag world! As much as the comment made me chortle, it is probably not far wrong! What a successful buy, love it!
Ta ta for now folks, have a lovely evening xxx
