That said, just because you're a mama now it doesn't mean you have to sacrifice your sense of style. The good news is a host of fashion-forward brands are leading the way and practical but stylish bags do exist! From functional backpacks to stylish bucket bags and hip commuter holdalls, you can now buy baby changing bags that include everything you might possibly need for a day out with your mini-me, in a range of styles to suit everyone's taste.
Looking for a backpack that's big enough to carry all of your baby bits but still looks cool? We've got you covered.

The truth is, as well as a pram organiser, every single time you leave the house for the next two years (at least) you're going to need space to store your own essentials plus nappies, wipes, muslins, dummies, formula, bibs, tissues, snacks, milk, water, more snacks, teething toys (all babies love Sophie La Giraffe) and the kitchen sink.
And if you try to shirk your kit carrying responsibilities and pop out with just your fave clutch bag? You will get caught short without a nappy in a supermarket car park. Trust us, we've been there.
On the plus side most baby changing bags are durable, hardwearing and come with loads of brilliant pockets, so they should last well beyond the baby years and can easily be transformed into a work bag (the nappy compartment usually fits a small laptop) or a gym bag. Keep scrolling for our edit of the very best baby changing bags available to buy now.
Consider your baby changing bag (or nappy bag as they're sometimes known) essential kit, and invest in one you love enough to carry around with you for the long haul. It's also worth considering the following pointers:
Once you’ve pondered the above you can start the search for a baby changing bag that suits your personal style. We’d recommend selecting something both you and your partner are happy to use – that way you’ll only need one main bag.
It’s also worth investing in a smaller pouch or clutch bag for those rare times when you might only need a scaled-down option, or a good pram organiser can really ease the load when you're out and about.
