Just wondered if you found it big enough and sturdy enough?
Mamas & Papas have 20% of their changing bags at the moment which is tempting me but it the Boots one will be suitable, I'll just use that!

I've just used the boots one on holiday as its a bit more lightweight than my pacapod as I done lots of slinging.. It was more than suitable! Depends how much you are a sucker for a pretty bag I guess!

It's a great little bag. Sturdy although i find it a bit too small. The changing mat it brilliant and i've used it with my other changing bag!

I used it a lot initially but it is quite small to use, especially if you have a baby who has a tendency to poset all of the milk feed every time they feed so you need space for lots of changes of clothes & lots of muslins!!

Thank you ladies!
The one I like in M&Ps is the messenger bag that goes with Sola, so it isnt exactly 'pretty' but there is a lot more space than the boots one.

How did you get your boots changing bag Mrs Bass? I got my bounty pack from there about 10 weeks ago and didn't get one :-(

I was going to ask the same thing as I got my bounty pack from Boots too.

Join the parenting club and the buy nappies i think!

You have to join the boots parenting club, then buy a packet of pampers from boots.
22/09/2013 at 21:03
yep, what they said!
You can join the boots parenting club on line then they send you a whole bunch of vouchers, one is for a free changing bag (worth £30 I think) when you buy a pack of Pampers new born nappies which are less than £3! bargain really!!

I used it with both of mine. Absolutely fine for short trips - pack of wipes, change of clothes and couple of nappies. Changing mat is fab! I had another bag if I was going out for the whole day and needed more stuff. Actually my H preferred the boots bag as it's not at all girly looking.

That's brilliant, I am going to join up.

We used it lots, the changing mat was great, H liked it because it wasn't girly so he was happy to carry.
It is a little small but that has only realy been a problem since we needed to take out toys or if we need a few nappies. I broke the zip around the 10month mark which was when I finally brought a bag.

Anyone tried to get one of these recently. I received my voucher today and it requires a purchase of an economy pack of new baby nappies, not sure what size that is exactly but the carry packs at £3 no longer work. As the new baby nappies don't fit F anymore I had to leave it as I only wanted it as a spare. They must have recently changed the rules :(

I got one and it seemed tiny so I've bought another one... but then we also will be using cloth nappies which take up more space dry anyway, and then of course are not binned once used so a bigger bag seems more of a necessity. I'm considering using the Boots one purely for the wet nappies though, so there's no risk of damaging the pretty iCandy bag... :shallow:

What size pack of nappies did you buy? They don't even have anything called economy size on their website!
12/10/2013 at 16:29
Just a small pack of newborns. I think it was these

We got ours recently and asked in the shop as the size pack of nappies we needed to buy wasn't clear, we had to buy a bigger pack of nappies but could get them in any size (as we originally bought the wrong size and had to take them back...). We have a Babymel Amanda already but H likes the Boots one so it'll be his man bag for his father and son trips out.

I had mine months ago and had the small pack of nappies but my SIL went in a couple of weeks ago and had to but the economy pack
