Remember when changing bags used to be... well, like changing bags? Great big IKEA-sized bags that weighed a ton even before you'd loaded in the nappies, wipes, drinks, stuffed animals and kitchen sink. Even worse than that, they would invariably be made from wipe-clean linoleum and decorated with teddy bears or rattles, effectively screaming mumsy and alerting everyone to the likely presence of poo-ey nappies within.
Cast that image from your mind. We, at Born, bring good news. No, we bring GREAT news! Baby Changing Bags are no longer the style killers they once were. Baby Changing Bags are no longer the size of small horse. Baby Changing Bags are no longer covered with teddies (well, most of them).
So why the change (no pun intended)? Essentially, changing bags are being made for the people who use them - parents, NOT babies - and that has made a massive difference in how they are designed.
The style of the bags are modern and in keeping with bags that you would use in day to day life. Many of them convert from daytime use as a changing bag to use as an evening bag on a night out. Even if you're not a "handbag person", many of the bags can be worn as messenger bags, satchels or backpacks.

Most bags come with a baby changing mat and at least one insulated bottle holder, but many of these features are removable, so when you no longer need a changing bag and your little one has progressed past the fun of potty training, you can reclaim the bag as your own. In fact, some bags are made specifically to fit laptops as well as baby gear.
PacaPod have gone one stage further and have designed amazingly stylish "Parent Bags" with separate baby changing pods and baby feeding pods that fit neatly into the bag whenever you need them, or hang from your stroller if your bag is full of "'grown-up stuff'. Ideal for those parents who are organised and an absolute joy for those of us who like to pretend we're organised.
