  • 1. PacaPod Richmond Bag, £89, MadeForMums Gold Award Winner

    This stylish, gold award-winning changing bag ticked all the boxes for practicality, versatility and design.

    In a range of neutral colours, this is a durable, wipe-clean bag that has a clever 3-in-1 system for keeping all those baby essentials well organised.

    Divided into separate ‘pods’ there’s a cool bag for feeding items (which is insulated so will keep warm for up to 3 hours too), a changer pod, padded changing mat and insulated bottle cover. 

    The tote-style can be carried over the shoulder, across the body or even clipped onto the buggy with the pram attachment straps.

    What our MadeForMums Awards judges say about the PacaPod Richmond bag:

    “Really lovely bag. Great design features. Practical. Love the pods it comes with.” Mum of 1, Meena

    “Great idea about the pods, really nice design and so versatile.” MadeForMums Reviews Editor Hazelann Williams

  • 3. Mia Tui Emma Changing Bag, £54.99, MadeForMums Bronze Award Winner

    Looking more like a handbag than a traditional changing bag, the Mia Tui Emma tote has a soft, leatherette finish and comes in 7 different colours.

    Mia Tui has even popped in a co-ordinating clutch bag, for when you finally get that night out!

    What our MadeForMums Awards judges say about the Mia Tui Emma Changing Bag:

    “Love the lining, great space, stylish, good pockets inside.” Mum of 1, Katie

    “I love this. Not change bag-like so could be used after baby. Perfect to last.” Mum of 1, Rachel
