Wallaboo Changing Bags

Changing bags haven't always been the most attractive of items, but thankfully things have been changing in recent years, and there are now plenty of bags that you can happily replace your handbag with for those nappy-changing days.

But the patterned bags tend to be quite summery in style, and if you're having a winter baby, a bag that's a bit more in keeping with the cold weather and drizzle is the Wallaboo Changing Bag.

Available from, the Wallaboo Changing Bags are made from microfibre suede with a fleecy trim that makes the bag feel luxurious yet hardy. The sheepskin vibe certainly makes it feel weather-proof, while the padded changing mat inside is fully washable. There's also a thermal cup holder and a waterproof dry bag. I

n fact, the whole thing - including the wallaby logo - gives off a rugged Australian vibe. Which is why it's a surprise to discover that the range is developed and made in the Netherlands, and sold by UK baby specialists Hippychick.
