Being out and about with the kids is how I spend the majority of my time. I am constantly hopping in and out of the car, and on trains and planes. Being this active means I have to have a mountain of items on me at all times.
Recently I have been talking about rediscovering my style. One of my issues I have found with this is a change bag. I often find them frumpy, or very often the cannot be disguised as anything other than a change bag. Now don’t get me wrong, I love a beautiful change bag as much as the next mum. But, sometimes I just want to go out and look like I’m not carrying nappies!
I discovered the wonderful Bax and Bay at Dot to Dot London in January. The Scottish based brand design bags that are designed to meet the needs of mums and dads and their goal is to provide a product that is not just a changing bag, but one that works perfectly for every day use. Their multi-functional bags are perfect as a work bag, sports bag and great for travelling (especially with kids in tow).
We received the Navy faux suede Cub Bag with a fabulous orange star detail on the front to review. One of the first observations is the attention to detail and the gorgeous quality of the bags.
I couldn’t wait to try ours out and I was so surprised at the amount of room in them. They are really unisex as well which means Daddy Viking had no problem trying out the bag either. He also commented on the quality and loved all the compartments inside for his keys and wallet. I really liked that despite looking like a normal handbag the Cub Bag also came with a change mat that matches the bag.
Bax and Bay describe the bag with all the following benefits:
Stylish and practical our baby changing bag in Navy faux suede also functions as a feeding pillow and carry support.
- Made in a high-quality faux suede which is waterproof, stain-resistant and hypo-allergenic
- Includes a padded, foldable changing mat (100% cotton)
- Fully washable at 30 degrees
- Features three good-sized pockets
- Key ring clip
- Fully adjustable strap, which can be untied to secure around the body for feeding
- Ideal for wearing with a sling or wrap
- Keeps hands free
- Fits across any buggy or pram
We could not agree more. Our Cub Bag has become our favourite for family trips out. We love that it can be slung over us or the buggy and we can just get on with our busy lives. I also love that on the rare occasion I am without the kids I don’t have to change my bag!
As you can see from the pictures above it looks great on both men and women. It’s slouch style brings a casual chic feel to your normal change bag.
Have you tried a Cub Bag? Do you carry different bags for different purposes?
