While going out these days usually entails just a change of nappies in a handbag or in the Smart Trike carry bag, I have really enjoyed trialling a couple of nappy bags we’ve been sent recently.
My first thought on the Babymule changing bag was that it was too big for our purposes until I needed to go out for a day and take my laptop along.Â The Baby Mule is a perfect overnight bag, or day trip bag, and is ideal for doubling as a laptop bag.
There are loads of pockets, which is great for those early days when you seem to carry a little bit of everything and probably my favourite feature of this nappy bag, as a baby wearer, is the fact that it turns into a backpack! I can’t tell you how often I moaned about having to carry a nappy bag over my shoulder while I had my baby in a sling, so this is fantastic in my world!
This is really spacious nappy bag too. On a day trip or overnight trip, there’s space for a whole day’s worth of reusable nappies, wipes, a jumper, and toys for the train journey, a camera, laptop, my make-up bag and purse.
The straps for the backpack are hidden behind a zip in the nappy bag, so when you want to convert it, it’s a simple process, and when you just want an over the shoulder bag, there are no backpack straps to trip over.
Included in the changing bag are a neoprene bottle warmer/cooler, a wet bag, a changing pouch for a few nappies or wipes and an easy clean changing mat. There’s a front pocket, a side pocket with a key ring, two large compartments with internal pockets. There are also hidden buggy clips with adjustable straps. You can watch the video to see how it all fits in together.
On top of all that, I think this is a pretty nappy bag. It’s not girly, not frilly, and not cutesy, but it is stylish and attractive â€“ in my opinion, at least!
The only drawback for the Baby Mule nappy gab is that the main compartments do not unzip all the way, so yo
u can’t open it fully. I find if I need something at the bottom of the bag, that can be a proble and I have to unpack till I get to it.
All in all, I love the Baby Mule. It is a fantastic overnight baby bag, and awesome if you have a mobile office on the go as it’s big enough for a large sized laptop too.
The Baby Mule changing bag is Â£84.00 from Baby Mule.
