Nova Harley Verona Changing BagNova Harley bags are luxurious, beautiful and highly functional; known for their superior quality, reliability and durability. They are loved for their catwalk designs with vibrant colors and their patented removable labeled interiors providing ample space for all your baby needs.
From the moment we laid eyes on this Nova Harley changing bag it was love at first sight. The Verona is super stylish and oh so practical. Like all Nova Harley bags, it is aesthetically beautiful, nobody would ever know it was a changing bag, meaning it will last well beyond your changing bag needs.
On the outside of the bag there is one zip pocket which is perfect for keeping your phone or purse. Inside the bag is where the Verona really comes into its own, it is so perfectly organised, with individual pockets and pouches for all your baby bits, bottle, dummy, food, nappies, wipes, spare clothing, there is even a pocket for dirty clothes, each pocket has a cute little icon on it so you can easily find what you are looking for.
The best thing about this bag is that the entire interior compartment with all the pockets and pouches can be removed from the bag, so when you no longer have any need for a changing bag or if you are going on a night out without the baby your Verona can be simply transformed into a normal bag, which still has plenty of zips and pockets for all your things.
The Verona also comes with a detachable leather shoulder strap, stroller straps, and insulated bottle tote, changing mat and a wet bag.
We can not recommend this bag highly enough, it is stylish, sophisticated and will last you a life time.
Lin & Leo Cardinal Changing BagThe Cardinal is Lin & Leo's latest addition and we think it's fabulous. Designed as a smaller bag for when you are popping out for a quick coffee or catch up with friends and need the baby changing essentials in a small lightweight bag, but don't need or want to carry all the additional paraphernalia.
The Cardinal comes in 3 stylish colours, black, grey and magenta. It features 4 internal pockets, 2 large and 2 small with enough space for nappies, baby wipes, nappy bags, and a spare onesie, plus your purse, phone and keys. It also includes a good sized removable padded changing mat and the lining can be wiped clean.

This is the perfect bag to have hanging in your hallway ready for when you need to pop out for a few hours.
OiOi Tan Leather Slouch Tote Changing BagWe are completely in love with this buttery soft leather slouch tote from OiOi, it is one of the most stylish changing bags we have come across and you will be the envy of all the mums in the playground with this beauty. You will have trouble convincing them it is a baby bag it looks so good.
Made from soft lamb distressed leather with lots of storage pockets, this is a bag you will want to keep forever. The natural smooth leather is a refined, supple leather which possesses a subtle grain. This tanned leather has been lightly drummed; a process that allows the leather’s natural markings and variations in colour to emerge through. This bag ages beautifully and acquires a vintage look.
The bag has one main internal compartment with elasticised pockets and an outer zip pocket for items you want to keep to hand.
The bag has the signature OiOi jacquard lining and comes with matching changing pad and insulated bottle holder, plus a zip top wet purse and OiOi wipes case. It also has a key fob holder for your keys or pacifier.
It has a detachable leather adjustable shoulder strap so can be worn over the shoulder or attached to a buggy with the detachable leather stroller straps, which are included. It also has small protective metal feet on the base.
We can not rave highly enough about this bag, it is truly beautiful and a real investment that will last well beyond your changing bag needs.
KeriKit Leather IvyFor a truly luxurious changing bag that will make you the envy of all other mums, look no further than the gorgeous new Ivy from KeriKit.
This stunning changing bag has a vintage style with a modern twist. Made with crocodile embossed full grain leather with light gold fittings. The stylish, minimalistic, compact exterior conceals all the standard KeriKit features inside.
Ivy has all the functionality you can expect with KeriKit such as as the internal and external pockets and multiple bottle holders. On the outside of the bag there is a large zip pocket on the back of the bag which will easily fit a tablet, mobile phone and any other essentials you need to hand. It also features a small waterproof lined pocket at the base of the bag for dirty nappies or an umbrella, we thought this was a wonderful feature. On the sides of the bag there are two pockets for bottles. The inside of the bag features a number of pockets small and large for storing all your baby essentials such as nappies, wipes, snacks and dummy plus a zip pocket and large pouch. In the middle of the bag there is plenty of space for larger items such as clothes and toys.

Isoki Noosa Hobo AngelWe absolutely love this award-winning changing bag from Isoki. The Angel Hobo comes in lots of different patterns but our favourite is this stylish blue and white Noosa design with tan leather look detail.
The first thing we noticed about the Hobo Angel is that it is super lightweight, which is fantastic as once you add all you baby essentials to any changing bag they usually seem to weigh a ton.
The Angel Hobo features multiple storage pockets inside and out, there is a large pocket on the back of the bag which is big enough to store a tablet and there are two pockets on either end of the bag to store your phone and purse, on the inside there are four large pockets to organise all your essentials such as nappies, wipes and snacks and one large zip compartment which would be ideal for storing dirty clothes. There is also plenty of space in the middle of the bag for spare clothing and toys. For such a light bag you can fit an awful lot in it.
Our favourite feature of this bag is the vertical outside pocket which opens to a large section that can hold up to three bottles, this is an absolute godsend when you are out for the day as it saves so much precious space on the inside of the bag and makes access to the bottles as easy as possible.
The Hobo Angel also comes with a matching insulated bottle holder, storage zip bag and changing mat plus an adjustable shoulder strap and stroller straps for attaching the bag to your buggy.
This bag is great value for money and we really feel like the bag looks much more expensive than it actually is, the beautiful design along with the practicality makes it a fantastic buy.
