o, your baby has safely arrived and now you’re thinking of venturing out into the big wide world. A newborn is so tiny… how much stuff could you possibly need? The answer is – a lot.

Gone are the days of popping out for coffee with just your phone and your keys. Oh no. You’ll need lots of nappies, nappy bags and wipes, potentially a change of clothes; bibs, bottles and other feeding essentials; any medicines, medication or other creams; perhaps some toys. So best get a stylish, and practical bag to put it all in.

The best nappy changing bags are lightweight when empty – nothing can be lightweight when you have all that stuff in it! – comfortable to wear, practical with lots of pockets (including a thermo-insulation section for bottles) and, of course, stylish.

Here’s some of the best.

Woven Grey Bowling Style Changing Bag

Mamas & Papas

This stylish grey bag will coordinate with most prams and is made of a water-resistant fabric meaning it will survive getting caught in the inclement British weather.

It includes two nappy bag essentials – a coordinating mat and an insulated bottle holder to keep bottled milk at the right temperature. The bag also comes with plenty of pockets for storing nappies, wipes, snacks etc.

The travel essential can be worn over the shoulder or as a backpack – so it’s almost like having two bags in one.

Nuna Diaper Bag

Nuna/Mamas & Papas

Nuna has rapidly become THE brand of the A-List, with Jessica Alba, Kylie Jenner and Serena Williams using their goods.

Its diaper bag has somewhat of a corporate look to it, with a simple modern design. It can be worn in three ways – on the shoulder, cross the body or as a backpack and, it has an integrated luggage sleeve so you can pop it on your wheel-on suitcase when travelling.

It has a whopping seven mesh pockets inside and includes the all-important bottle bag and a chic changing pad clutch.

TIBA + MARL Elwood changing rucksack


This backpack could easily pass as a work bag or overnighter with its tough, modern look. It also comes in beige and a very cool silver for more bold, fashion-focused parents. It features two main pockets – with the insulated bottle holder living in the front pocket for easy access.

Inside is a luxurious padded changing mat, removable clutch with detachable strap, phone pocket, and several large internal pockets. Best of all, the entire inside lining is wipe clean – useful for any inevitable spills.

Babymel Georgi Eco Convertible Backpack in Caramel Lepoard


Made from recycled plastic bottles, this convertible changing bag helps the planet as well as with nappy changes – and comes in a super fun leopard print material.

Babymel’s similar Robyn range also comes in a variety of fun colour options – a great pick for those looking for something a little bit different that doesn’t compromise on essential pockets, a changing mat and a bottle holder.

Strada Changing Bag

Mamas & Papas

Ok, so this may be light beige in colour – arguably not often the safest colour choice for new parents – but its modern and unisex design makes it a stylish option.

The adjustable strap means it can be worn as a backpack or a shoulder bag, so it is as versatile as it is stylish. There are plenty of easy-access pockets both externally and internally and it comes with a wipe clean mat and a bottle insulator. The latter can be removed when your baby is no longer on the bottle, as it were, so it potentially has a longer shelf life than other bag options.

Skip Hop Main Frame Changing Backpack, Black

John Lewis

Sporty, lightweight and good value, this backpack from Skip Hop features a large main compartment with a wide opening so you can actually see what you have inside.

As well as adjustable straps to wear in various ways, the bag can be attached to your pushchair for those days when you just don’t want to carry anything.

It has insulated and elasticated pockets to hold bottles and a number of useful pockets on the outside that are good for storing adult things like phones and wallets.

Changing Bag Backpack


A good pick for the conscious parent, this styish choice is made of 100 per cent vegan leather and features a high-quality finish and luxurious look. Inside is a supersized changing mat and a detachable insulated bottle holder, meaning again it can be removed and the bag can be used in the post-bottle feeding era.

Burberry Kids Leather Trim ECONYL Baby Changing Backpack


For the label obsessed, of course there is a Burberry nappy bag complete with the British brand’s iconic interior lining. It has one main compartment, so everything is in one place, and has comfortbale padded shoulder straps. Comes with a changing mat to boot – only the best for a designer baby.

This is a beautiful bag combines style with function. It could easily be a sleek weekend bag – and could double up as a hospital bag ahead of its nappy changing duties.

Made from calf leather, it has eight interior pockets with a zip compartment for valuables, two exterior slip pockets, a thermo-insulated bottle holder, a water repellent and wipe clean lining, and the bag comes with a luxury padded changing mat.
