Changing bags are every new mum’s best friend – the perfect way to carry nappies, bottles, wipes and all those other little things that will keep your new bundle of joy happy and clean.

Choosing the changing bag that’s right for you isn’t always easy though, and with Babymel there’s so many different styles, sizes, shapes and finishes available choosing the one will suit your needs best can be difficult.

Take a look at our handy guide for some helpful tips on choosing the right changing bag for you…


All Babymel bags are made from a synthetic fabric, meaning we’re kind to cows and the price of your changing bag is affordable to! Our changing bags are available in a huge range of prints, all of these original to us and designed in-house, as well as a number of chic and simple plain fabric bags.

If you like to stand out with fun, bright colours and patterns, your favourite bag might be the Big Slouchy in Twisted Red or a Jumbo Dot design, the Cara in Navy Stripe with bright bow detail, or the ever-popular Amanda in Starburst Black and Silver pattern.


You might think when picking your changing bag the bigger the better, but the practicality of carrying around a bag that’s too big for you could leave you regretting your choice.

Some of our smaller styles include the Compton Navy, which is also a great unisex bag, and the Satchel bag. Our Big Slouchy is a large yet lightweight choice, and the Amanda quilted is a little bigger than the classic Amanda bag, but still just as stylish.


There are a number of handy features included in your Babymel bag. As standard, all of our bags have a Babymel changing mat and insulated bottle pocket or holder. Our satchel styles are especially handy if you want to keep yours and baby’s belongings separate, as there’s two internal spaces for complete organisation!

The Amanda Zipper is a good choice for busy parents who need to access their belongings quickly, as there is a large zip across the front of the bag.

If lots of pockets are your thing the Soho Messenger is your ideal bag. With five internal pockets, five external pockets and two external insulated bottle pockets, it is the perfect choice if you have twins and need to carry two bottles. The Soho Messenger is also unisex, meaning dad won’t be embarrassed to carry it either!

For a bag that is especially easy to clean, the shiny laminate canvas finish of the Big Slouchy in twisted red and khaki is the ideal easy to maintain, wipe-clean choice.

Our handy X2 bag is perfect for parents of twins or two small children – the two babys can be attached to each other or taken apart, and come in two different colours for easy identification; a useful feature should parents take a baby out each and both need a bag.


Babymel bags are available in a number of different styles, with something suitable for everybody, depending on how you like to carry your bag. We offer a choice of satchels, messenger bags, handbag styles and shoulder bags, most of which also include a detachable long handle to be attach easily, hands free to your stroller.
