Changing Bags

T
he important choices in buying a changing bag have moved away from practicality (though woe betide any that are hopeless!) to Fashion with a capital F. And there is choice at all price points.

On the move with a baby is certainly not a time when a parent is travelling light. Even a short trip out needs a changing mat, nappies, wipes, perhaps a change of clothes for the inevitable accident. Often an older child will also need a couple of toys, and almost certainly a drink of some sort, in his special cup!

This is where a changing bag comes in handy. Of course, the prime consideration ought to be practicality. Can a parent fit in all that’s needed? Are things easy to find? Is there a place for their keys? Is their phone within easy reach or will they need to go scrabbling in the bottom every time it rings?

However as with so many things, many parents prefer to choose a bag that is fashionable. And there is a huge choice in the market, from classy bags to match business suits to vivid fun bags. Some are very feminine but we mustn’t forget that it is often Dad who has the responsibility for ferrying the child to the nursery, so there is a need for bags which won’t shame him!

This is a category where retailers have a wide choice, so do don't have to sell what your competitors are selling!

Pink Lining launches new Vegan Leather Collection

Pink Lining is delighted to announce the launch of a capsule collection of Vegan Leather changing bags for those who love the functionality of Pink Lining changing bags but prefer a more pared-back and unisex look.

It’s been designed for parents who love their baby, but don’t want to look like they’re carrying baby paraphernalia around.

The collection comprises a Grey or Black leather rucksack called Shoreditch and a cross-body bag called Hoxton. Both will look as effortlessly fashion-forward whether in a trendy urban environment, or deep countryside and can be used both for nappies and beyond.

Both bag shapes have the same attention to detail inside as our other bags, with the insulated inbuilt bottle holders and same dividing pockets and pouches that Pink Lining’s so well loved for. Affording plenty of space for nappies, wipes, creams, etc plus parent pockets – key fob, pen holder, mobile phone – so all essentials are covered. Plus, Pink Lining has tipped a nod to fashion trends. Each bag comes with one plain striped strap and one fashion strap of coloured butterflies on a striped grey background, so accessorise depending on your mood that morning!

Those with eagle eyes will notice there’s a different logo on a cream background in place of our signature pink lining, with a fold-up coated fabric changing mat and a luxurious pouch, to be used for creams and wipes. Pink Lining’s logo is stamped onto the zip pull, creating a discreet identification for those in the know.

The Hoxton is a double zipped shoulder bag meaning plenty of space to organise all baby and parent essentials easily, with a large embossed outline bow on the front whereas the Shoreditch looks like a contemporary rucksack with a large front pocket for parent essentials and a carry handle at the top. As with all bags, either wear yourself or attach to buggy.

Also look out for the Vegan Leather Stroller organiser which will accessorise your monochrome look perfectly and ensure all essentials are to hand in a second in case of a baby melt-down! The front purse section zippers off for when you need to leave the buggy outside.
