As a mum of 2 and a bump on the way, I know just how important a good changing bag is. It needs to be big enough to carry everything bar the kitchen sink but, it also doesn't want to be too bulky as it may need to get carried around whilst also struggling with a baby.
When Aldi sent me out their new changing bag, which is in store as part of their Baby & Toddler Event, I got straight down to using it and seeing how it coped with being used vigorously by me and my 2 boys.
Priced at £14.99, the bag comes in navy or brown, which is more of a maroon colour, and is fully waterproof with many compartments to keep everything safe. With straps for carrying around and a detachable shoulder strap too, an elasticated pouch to store a babies bottle in and comes with a changing mat too.
The main zip compartment has enough space to hold everything needed for a small baby and more. It managed to hold nappies, wipes, spare clothing, a bottle, my purse, phone and my camera (I never leave the house without my camera). It then has a small zipped compartment to the back which is perfect for things you need to find quickly like keys or a spare bib for wiping away messes.
At the front, there is a huge zip which goes the whole way along the front. This folds down and reveals another compartment which again has more storage and also the part which holds the changing mat.
The bag itself it very durable. The waterproof fabric means that it can be wiped clean of any marks and the shoulder strap is thick and robust and comfortable to wear over the shoulder whilst carrying it around.
Overall, I like the pattern on the changing bag and the colour too, the size is adequate enough to hold everything a new mum needs and it is made from good quality materials that will last. I can't wait for my bump to be born now so that I can have this on the back of my pram.
This baby changing bag is in store from today in the Baby & Toddler event so make sure you get down there whilst stocks last.
