Pink Lining "Yummy Mummy" Changing Bag - Review

A few weeks ago, I received the best delivery ever - a gorgeous Pink Lining "Yummy Mummy" Green Dragonflies changing bag!

I got so excited when I saw the box and almost cried at its beauty when I took it out. I couldn't wait to get testing it out. 

We don't drive and we walk everywhere with the pram so our changing bag gets used a lot. I keep everything baby related inside it plus, it also gets used as my handbag too - I don't see the point in having two bags hanging over the buggy.

On first impression, obviously the outer dragonfly design is beautiful with a gorgeous cupcake on the pocket and embroidered with "Yummy Mummy". The pocket has a magnetic fastener which comes in so handy when quickly closing it when you're finished with it.

Also on the outside are two insulated bottle holders. There are no zips to fiddle with so they're so convenient for putting bottles in and out of.

The inside is probably the girliest inner of changing bag I've ever seen. It is a haven of pink but there are so many useful pouches inside.

There are 2 nappy pockets and I am able to squeeze 2 nappies into each which is a great as 4 nappies lasts me a full day. In addition to this, there is a small zip pocket where I'll keep a small tube of nappy cream. The bag includes a padded changing mat too. For a mat that comes free with a changing bag, this is amazing quality. C seems so comfortable on it.

As I mentioned earlier, I also use my changing bag as my handbag and Pink Lining have really incorporated that into this bag. It includes a pen holder which is fab as I always need a pen and never have one. This is reminded me to carry one! As well as a key fob, a small mirror and phone pocket! Amazing and so thoughtful.

There are two ways to carry the bag too, small handles to hold or a strap to go over your arm or buggy. The strap is easy to loosen or tighten so it can be hung at a convenient level.

My favourite aspect, being a cloth mummy, is the zipped wet bag. In my old changing bag, I always brought a plastic carrier bag with me to place my used cloth nappies in until I got home. This addition to the bag is fantastic. It's so simple but made me so happy! I don't have to worry about anything in my bag getting wet or forgetting the house without a bag.

I have had this bag around a month and it has not got a speck of dirt on it due to the wipe clean outer material. I am so impressed with it and I could not recommend a changing bag more. This bag is currently on sale from £79 down to £50 so it is well worth picking one up! You really won't regret it.

You can find Pink Lining at their website, Facebook & Twitter.
