Pink Lining Changing Bags for Stylish Mums

I was contacted recently by the team behind Pink Lining, telling me about their stylish changing bags and asking me to take a look at the website. I'm past the changing bag phase now (phew) but I know lots of you still have babies and toddlers so I checked them out and was very impressed - I wish I'd had one a few years back...

I was offered my choice from the entire Pink Lining changing bag range and it wasn't easy to find one favourite. After much deliberation, I opted for the Bramley Tote in Hydrangea because I loved the striped straps that are adjustable to suit any pram. It was always a frustration for me that not all changing bags sit well over prams as well as buggies (and don't get me started on twin buggies!!) You can read more about the strap design and see photos of it attached to a pram on the Pink Lining website.

Inside, the bags have pink lining (obviously!), a decent sized changing mat, a wet bag, an insulated bottle cover, small mirror, key fob to clip your car keys onto (so you don't lose them in the bottom of the bag) and several pockets for smaller items. On the outside, it's got two large zipped compartments. Big ticks for the extra pockets - you can never have enough of these.

But I'm most impressed that you can pick up additional bottle holders & changing mats on the Pink Lining website - great for mums with 2 or more little ones.  Additionally, you can find a matching wallet or co-ordinating phone cover...and so much more. There's even ultra comfy ballet pumps which help with back and joint pain during pregnancy (and beyond....I've my eye on the navy pair!)


To give the bag some perspective, I styled it up with a simple mum-friendly outfit - skinny jeans,  long wedge boots, a flattering draped cardigan and a scarf (all old favourites from my wardrobe).
I know I say it all the time but scarves are great for pulling an outfit together but they're also useful for breast feeding - especially if you're still getting the hang of it in the early days - AND for making a sling to carry your tiny one in (loads of video tutorials on YouTube).

  14. Such a beautiful changing bag! I love all the pockets, you can never have too many! And I always like somewhere you can attach your keys, a changing bag can be like a tardis at times, you can never find anything! Finally, it needs to be wipeable, I have gotten so much nappy cream and milk over mine!

  26. The bag looks fab, thanks for your review! Never tried Pink lining bags before but I keep hearing so many good things about them.
    I always carry with me a large zip lock, for keeping wet clothes away from all the dry one. I must admit that the wet bag included in your review looks so much handy :)

  39. That is because unlike a regular bi-fold or tri-fold wallet, they don't fold at all so you won't ever have to squeeze your wallet to try to get it into your pants. https://casaubinhminh.com/
