Babybeau Grab & Go Clutch, Mini Changing Bag

This compact changing bag came as a bit of a revelation. It took this little beauty landing in my lap to realise that a baby doesn't always have to equal serious amounts of baggage. Sure, if you're planning
to be out for hours you'll need a little more in your armour than a couple of nappies and a changing mat but for those quicker trips, like popping out for a few hours with the mini to meet friends, this stylish little shoulder bag fits everything a little bottom (and the bottom's mum) needs.

The bag looks like a normal bag when closed with the magnetic poppers under the front flap. The exterior is leather with a snakeskin effect front panel and gold hardware. Open the bag and it completely unravels, much like a cosmetic bag to reveal three separate water resistant compartments which easily accommodate a couple of nappies, baby wipes a spare babygro, a small purse and my phone (I tested it). The interior is designed in a chic monochrome stripe, including a fold out changing mat.

The shoulder strap is long enough to wear across the body and sits on the hip at its longest, but also adjusts to a short strap for the over shoulder look. It also comes off completely to be used as a clutch but from my limited experience of babies, two hands are better than one so I think I'll be leaving the strap firmly attached. The magnetic closure means that the bag can be unravelled with one hand, useful if you're holding a baby still on one of those precarious looking plastic fold down changing tables with the other.

I can see this bag getting a lot of mileage, and in leather, it will only improve with age. I can't wait to start using it, it's taking all of my willpower to wait until baby arrives to whip out this little wonder.

What do you think? Could you be tempted to leave the super-sized baggage at home?
