My Style // Backpacks for Changing Bags

I am sure the most sort after bag of this season has not passed you by but in case it has its the Backpack.

You can not walk into a High Street Retailer without being met by many, they have been matched to every trend/style currently in stores and what more they are seriously practical.

I love Backpacks so am especially happy to see them everywhere, although other than one for £75 I have yet to find a perfect one I want to spend money on for myself.

We gave up changing bags pretty quick after Deacon was born, I had some real beauties, I won a SugarJack and was sent a MamaibyChet but as the Mr was the main parent at home it just didn’t seem to work. It was easier for each kid to have a SkipHop backpack as they frequently would be split up to.

But with the introduction of the Backpack in shops I had found this gorgeous Cath Kidston one on sale and decided to buy it as an alternative changing bag. Although still quite feminine Ashley does not mind using it and with the Summer Holidays and having all 3 kids at home it saves taking lots of bags. I can fit masses in it, it hangs on the pushchair or if we are out walking it goes on my back and gives me my hands free.

I had a little look and picked my Top 5 Backpacks, finding some suitable for all…

SkipHop Forma Backpack

Skip Hop Forma Backpack – An actual designated Nappy Bag, having everything you would expect including insulated bottle space, changing mat and masses of space for everything you need for a day on the go. It is a great classic design.

BabyMel Toddler Backpack

BabyMel Toddler Backpack and Lunchbox – If you child is that little bit older and is weaned then this is a great backpack, with many designs the 2 pieces connect together or can be used separate. The bag has plenty of room for change of clothes, nappies and a couple of toys, whilst the lunchbox holds all the food. I am very tempted with getting one of these for Deacon.

Cath Kidston Backpack

Cath Kidston Backpack – Coated Cotton is the major selling point with this backpack, it means no matter the spill it is easy to clean. Many feminine designs it talks to the pretty lovers but also comes with oodles of room, I have one in similar style and I take everything for 3 children, 2 of whom are in Nappies.

Fjallraven Kanken Backpack

Fjallraven Kanken Backpack – Classic style this works for any outfit and anyone, quality made from 1978, it has several pockets so allows you to keep everything organised and easily accessible. Reflective badge means you shall be safe when out and about.

Superdry Backpack

Superdry Rucksack – This is the Husbands pick, he is Superdry mad but not only that it suits many for its classic style. Great size it will fit so much in, easy access pockets for car keys and wallet. This simple design is great for Men and Women alike without the need to swap.

How do you feel about the Backpack current craze ? Have you found a nice one you would like to share?
