Just when I thought I could I could make do with a cute little cross body bag or fabulous piece of shoulder bag arm candy, baby number three popped into our lives. Obviously we adore having Hettie but it does mean I have had to get used to carrying the world (plus the world’s kitchen sink) around with me again. Nappies, a change of clothes, bottles, muslins along with bits to entertain the boys if we are all off out means we have needed a larger than life bag which will easily hold everything and be practical as well as being a bit on the stylish side. This is where the Idaho Jones changing bag has helped make getting out and about with three kids in tow a slightly more organised affair.
Idaho Jones is a company set up to deliver simple solutions to modern parenting needs. The Idaho Jones collection consists of a changing backpack and a breast pump backpack (although this can also be used as a changing bag in its own right). I was sent the Gallivant Baby Change Diaper Backpack to try out on our new, improved family.
The bags are made from a black dot nylon and infested with gold hardware. The result is a smart looking design (I do love black and gold together), which is light and durable so will not add to the weight once all your family’s bits are bobs are packed away within it. It is comfortable to wear and is a design both men and women can feel at ease when using it.
There are so many features I love about the bag from the lightweight design so as not to give me permanent shoulder damage to the numerous pockets and compartments to help finding things that bit simpler, including a velvet padded zippered pocket to keep your mobile safe, to the integrated velcro buggy straps and the large zip along the top of the backpack which makes searching through the main body of the bag a doddle with everything easy to see. I also have the immediate essentials tucked away in the side pockets (wet wipes and a muslin cloth for any spills or accidents!).
If you are looking for a changing bag or simply a bag for days out with the kids (even if they are not babies anymore), this is a wonderful option. This is definitely an ideal travel companion for adventures at home or abroad.
