I have wanted to get myself a changing bag since I found out I was pregnant. I remember how excited I was picking my bag when I was pregnant with Josh. I had always admired my friend’s, and couldn’t wait to get one, (sad I know). I had a yummy mummy bag with Josh also. It was purple and pink with a dandelion print, I loved it! I used it so much so I knew I needed one again this time. I found the same bag I had with Josh on Ebay but before I could make a decision, I looked at some more designs, and that is when I came across the ‘Penguin Love Bag’. I love the design and the colours. The pockets are a lovely shade of grey which I absolutely love because not only is it my favourite colour, but it is the colour of my nursery too!
The bag is absolutely gorgeous and so well made. I was very impressed with the quality when it arrived. It comes with two straps, one short one for carrying over your arms and a longer strap to use over the shoulder or over the pram which is what I intend on doing. It has two side pockets which are elasticated which I will use for bottles as they will be easily accessible. A gorgeous front pocket with a cupcake (as have most of their designs) with a magnetic closing which is perfect for keeping more valuable items in, such as your mobile phone, cards or change. The material the bag is made from is extremely good. It can be easily wiped over which makes it quick and convenient to clean.
The bag inside has their signature bright pink lining (which is water resistant) and it add’s a brilliant pop of colour. It comes with such a vary of things inside to help you keep organised on the go with a baby (and Josh too!) These include;
A pen loop
Handy external side pockets for easy access
A slip pocket which is ideal for a phone or ipod
2 thermo insulated integrated bottle holders which keeps the bottles cold or warm for up to four hours
Detachable and adjustable shoulder strap
2 zips for easy opening and closing
Key/dummy fob on stretchy elasticated ribbon
2 large elasticated pockets for use with nappies
It also comes with a clear zip bag to keep essentials in. The zip bag also has the pink cupcake design which I think is lovely and really compliments the bag. Also included is a on the go changing mat which Josh has been practising changing his favourite teddy on before baby arrives. I used to use the changing mat quite frequently with Josh when I was out and about as I hated putting him straight on to a baby changer that had been used with 100’s of babies. I felt using my own was a lot more hygienic and it easily fits inside he bag too which is great.
What I love about this bag is it can still be used once the baby is bigger. I can to use it to take out spare clothes for both sets of kids, as well as their snacks, drinks and other bits they need on a daily basis. It really is such a lovely bag and has everything you need to help you on the go with two little ones. I would recommend them to anyone and really do rate the quality. I love the detail they put in to each bag, the penguins are really cute and I can’t wait to be able to use it.
This bag can be purchased from amazon and retails at £79.00
