Baby Purchase | Babymel Satchel Changing Bag

Ahoy Blogerinos!

Who knew the changing bag market was so big and confusing?! I've spent the last few weeks trying to choose a changing bag, there were so many mixed reviews on every bag I liked & I didn't want to spend a small fortune. The bag also has to be man friendly, as much as I like the girly bags I don't think Anthony would be very happy using one. 

I was at the end of my changing bag tether when I found this bag, the Babymel navy satchel changing bag & I instantly fell in love! I love anything with stripes so naturally I had to have this. I'd just like to say this isn't a review of the bag, as my little girl isn't here yet I don't think it's really fair to review the bag and the features but I thought I'd show you it & review it at a later date.

Babymel are a London based retailer of changing bags and all bags feature changing mats, wipe clean linings and an insulated bottle holders.

Babymel offer various bags but I chose this one simply because I liked the design, i think it looks really chic and will look lovely in the spring/summer when our baby is due.

As mentioned above an insulated bottle holder/pocket is included. I obviously haven't tried this yet but I like the idea of keeping a bottle warm for an on the go feed.

There are 2 departments to the bag, a pocket under the flap and a separate zip department with various pockets inside. I can see the flap pocket being ideal for all my stuff including purse, phone etc as this will also be used as my handbag. The zip compartment will be used for baby bits as the multiple pockets inside will be ideal for storing all manner of things I'm sure!

I'll be doing a proper review of the bag once I've used it & this bag will also be used for my hospital bag so I'll show you what's inside once it's all packed and ready to go. 

The Babymel Satchel retails for £42.00 on the Babymel website but I found it for £33.60 on the Mamas & Papas website with free delivery to store! 

I'd love to know what your chosen changing bag is or what you've used in the past.
