Twin changing bag or a con?

Hi,

Have been looking a changing bags and am going to get my free Boots one BUT wondered if it is worth the expense to get a twin one? They have the clips to attach to the handlebar which is brill as a normal one won't stretch over. That and the extra size seems to make them expensive :sadface:
Has anybody got any thoughts on these?
Thanks :)

Hi hun, I've managed with my boots freebie so far. I must admit sometimes I've ran out of space in it, but of course it depends where you're going and how long for as to how much you need to pack.

It fits in a couple of bottles, 2 cartons formula, 2 changes of clothes, nappies, wipes and nappy bags - I usually end up squeezing an extra small bottle of water, 2 jars food paracetamol suspension and my purse and phone before it starts bursting at the seems! The straps are long and adjustable, I usually just wear it across my body as I've only got a piddly basket area in my powertwin puschair. I also put a waterproof bag in there too for dirty clothes etc.

Thanks Moonshine!
Think I will stick to the freebie Boot bags then. I have a Mountain Buggy which has a good basket to sling it in.
You have saved me money, ta x

I use a big handbag!!! I found it had far more room in it than the normal changing bags, I can fit in 2 bottles in bottle warmers, changing mat, nappies, wipes, toys, change of clothes, purse, calpol, and loads more!!

Thanks,

I used to get so mad with my changing bag. Everything always ended up at the bottom and I could never find anything. I've found that handbags are far better designed, especially the big ones, for baby stuff!!

If you do decide to buy a changing bag, TK Maxx is worth a visit, they have some really funky bags at great prices. Mine is bright patent red with stripy lining and has loads of pockets and compartments. It cost me £15 but the RRP was £70. When I get bored of it I may go and get another one!!! :happy:

Just to add to this, I hit TK Maxx this morning and did indeed pick up a massive changing bag for £14! I wasn't sure if the Boots Freebie would suffice, but this one is really really roomy and neutral colours and best of all my DH has no problem slinging it over his shoulder, so a winner all round! Thanks for the tip!!

Nappy changing bags come in all sorts of shapes and sizes but it really doesn't need to be that big. However I've never really done handbags so anything i have to carry is a hassle! :laugh:

I ended up getting this one Phillips Avent rucksack I wanted a rucksack so that it was easy to carry. This also fits comfortably at the bottom of my Nipper 360 buggy (the additional bag carrier accessory for the buggy).

The bonus of this bag is that it has a zipper Thinsulate pocket for two 9oz bottles for keeping bottles warm or cool which has been very handy when I was feeding the twins EBM which needs to have been in the fridge at least an hour before putting in the bag.

It comes with normal changing bag stuff, so a small changing mat, a bag for nappies, lots of pockets, mesh pockets, zip pockets outside pockets so everything is very easy to find.

All I carry in mine are four nappies, small roll of nappy bags, some cotton wool, small tub of sudocrem, two babygros, two bibs, a muslin, cartons of ready made milk if out and needing a feed, a pair of scissors, some dettol wipes, antibacterial gel, my cheekywipe fresh and mucky bags, two dummies, my purse and if meeting up with friends, my big camera.

The freebie Boots one will i'm sure be all you need but I would definitely recommend this one. It's not very sexy but extremely practical!

I had a voucher for a free bag if buying newborn pampers pack. Think it was when I joined the Boots Parenting Club online.
