A changing bag is one thing you’ll be taking everywhere with you for the next couple of years, so invest in something that is not only practical but that you also enjoy wearing! We’ve rounded up some of the most stylish buys from £49.99…
Tiba and Marl Elwood backpack
A cult buy among mums, the Tiba and Marl Elwood ticks all the boxes in terms of practicality, aesthetics and versatility. The leather backpack will go with everything, is easy to wear while pushing a pram, and is one that men won’t mind being seen in too.
Functionality wise, it has a large main pocket, a smaller section with an insulated pocket for a bottle, a slim front pocket, and a foldaway changing mat for nappy changes on the move. There is even a small zip up bag enclosed that you can use to stash your own bits and bobs, or to hold a spare outfit for baby. In short, they’ve thought of everything.

Jem + Bea Jemima tote
If you prefer a tote, you’ll love this design from Jem + Bea. The luxurious style has chic touches such as a leather vanity pouch and keyring holder, with no less than eight interior pockets to hold everything from your phone to a bottle. It’s one you can wear long after you need it for baby changing.

PacaPod Hastings bag
This 3-in-1 bag already comes with a travel changing mat, quick access side bottle pockets and pods to keep everything organised inside, but you can adapt it to fit your needs by choosing your own custom accessories and extras. You’ll never lose anything again.

Storksak Stevie Luxe changing bag
We’ve got a lot of love for this Storksak tote, which is equally functional and fashionable. Luxe metal hardware and leather trims earn the bag serious style points, while the interior features, including an insulated food and drink bag, an oversized changing mat and several concealed pockets for nappies, wipes and the like, mean it is well worth the investment.

Mamas & Papas and Liberty London have joined forces to create a changing bag featuring one of the iconic department store’s archive prints. A refreshing change from the plain black, grey and neutral bags we’re used to seeing, this floral tote has plenty of storage and features pockets for all the essentials, along with a co-ordinating changing mat and insulated bottle holder.
