Bringing a new baby home can be stressful and you will find that when you are invited out or you even need to go do the basic grocery shopping, that you may need to change a nappy or baby may need a feed. You don't want your life to come to a grinding halt and you not being able to leave the home, so make sure you choose the right bag that you can take with you along with everything you will or may need from nappies to bottles to a change of clothing, as you never know what could happen.
The first thing to focus on is the dimensions of the changing bag. You don't want anything too big, but at the same time you need to make sure that you don't choose too small that doesn't accommodate everything you need. Measure the bag and then the back of the push chair you will be using. Most bags can hang off the back of the push chair, so you don't have to carry it with you. Ensure it fits comfortably and won't be too bulky that you find it hinders you when you leave the home.
Next consider the weight of the changing bag. They are all different, made by different manufacturers so these are important elements to take into consideration. You want something that is lightweight as possible. Remember once you start putting in bottles of powder, nappies, drinking bottles and maybe a toy or two, the bag is going to get much heavier. The lighter the possible when it comes to choosing the right bag.
Next review the changing bag you are looking at. Maybe go on YouTube and see if someone has done a video on the product. This gives you a good idea of it's size and also the features it may present. Go through the online reviews, read what other parents have to say about the item before making any decisions. It's worthwhile having a few options in mind, so you can compare them to find the one you feel is the right match for you.
From here to on Google Images and see if anyone has put up any photographs. Seeing mothers holding the bag or having it slung over the back of the push chair can help you find the size and get an idea of the overall bag to make your decision.
The final considerations is any features the bag may offer. A good example is whether it has an adjustable strap? In addition to this, look at the several compartments it has. You want a few compartments so you can keep a change of clothes away from the nappy and changing items and of course, you want this separate from the bottles and food you may want to take with you.
