Changing bags

I think we've briefly talked about changing bags previously but I've been looking around and don't know what to buy. There seems to be a lot of women who say you don't need a 'twin' bag but all the usually bags look quite small.

My best friend had a 10 week old and a 2.5year old and has a 'Baby K' one from mothercare which is said she can sometimes struggle with after all their nappies and bottles are in it and hers is one of the largest bags I've seen. She doesn't put it over the handlebars but in the basket underneath as she said she prefers it like that.

I have a Paul's boutique large Tilly twister bag which I use as hand luggage when we go away which is pretty big. I was considering getting a black one of those as it seems larger than any others and I don't know if I'm being silly or not! Lol! What do u guys use? X

I've got a Pacapod, I am about to have a two year old and a newborn on my hands and I am just hoping it will be big enough. TBH, I've come to the conclusion that nothing will ever really be big enough! Anyway, the design concept of Pacapod is fab, just a word of warning, I am actually on my second one as the first one started to fall apart after only a couple of months. I may have just been unlucky and give them their dues, Pacapod were great. I've got a slightly different one now and xfingers the zip won't break!

Anyway, give their site a look and see what you think......................

I had a changing bag that I got from TK Maxx, my decision was based on the colour!!! I have not got a 2 year old ( who is still in nappies) and a 7 week old and I use a Cath Kidston bag which I have found to be great, it's huge has plenty of pockets and has nice flowers on it! : D The reason that I changed from the changing bag is that I wanted a bag with a cross the body strap so that my hands are free when I am carrying it, my other bag would go on my shoulder but if I leant over to pick DS up it would swing forward off of my shoulder. Maybe try out a cheaper bag first to see how you use it and get an idea of what you need. I would have loads if I could afford it, there are so many great ones to choose from!

Hi, I have a radley change bag, it's pretty spacious for two bubs.
Gracie I originally ordered a pacapod, thought wow! Opened it up had a good look and the zip broke! I sent it back and was put off it, but I am thinking to get the pods maybe just the food ones as they can be used as backpacks in the future by the bubs.

I've got a Storksac (Emily) which I love because it looks just like a handbag. I have also been known not to bother with a nappy bag and to chuck everything into my big Mulberry handbag instead.

I bought our nanny a Pink Lining bag which she loves. They have just started to do a twins version.

I bought the M&P Il Tutto Nico in patent black bag and adore it - plenty of room for double everything + my purse!
Not a twins one, but really roomy and easy to rummage about it.

Ive noticed a lot of changing bags don't have buggy clips so the bag would have to go in the basket under our buggy which I'm not so keen on. I'm looking at a Radley one that's expandable, can be worn across body and has buggy straps. I still can't decide whether it's big enough for 2 but I thought I could get a speedster thermal bottle bag to take out if I need it.
