Changing bags got cool
One thing I found when I became a new mum – apart from the complete and utter change a baby brings to your life – is that I stopped using a handbag. It sounds insignificant, and in the grand scheme of feeding, burping and snatching slivers of sleep, it totally was. But in another sense, the day I decided to go out with a handbag instead of just the hulking great change bag was a big moment. It felt as if a hint of the old me was emerging from the haze of my new mum chrysalis. Me v2.0. And after several months in a post-birth shell-shocked cocoon, it was nice to have a bit of the old me back. Saying that, it didn’t go well as I ended up wrestling with my shoulder bag (bad choice) and the bulky change bag and returning home a red hot mess.
If only I had known then what I know now – changing bags got cool. I could have easily tapped into a stylish alternative which sated my need for a separate bag.
But worry not. If you’re in the same boat as I was (or heading to a baby shower and want to get possibly the best present ever for a new mum) then I have the answers for you, as I’ve rounded up the most stylish change bags on the market.

Yes these bags are pricey as changing bags go, but you’re effectively doubling them up as your handbag and they are very stylish, which I thinks helps to justify the price tag. What do you think?
