A changing bag is one of the most important purchases you will make as a new parent.
We bought a cheap and basic changing bag when I was pregnant with Little Miss H. It was boring and black. And after a month it needed replacing.
I then bought a Cath Kidston floral backpack. Mr H HATED this bag. Pretty pastels and floral it really was not his style. Also, the bag was big enough for Little Miss H’s belongings. But I knew that once we had two children we would need something larger.

Before Little Mister H arrived on the scene I started looking for the perfect changing bag. It needed to be big, waterproof, easy to carry and filled with pockets and compartments.
Thankfully, my search ended when toTs by SmarTrike asked me if I wanted to review one of their changing bags. Of course, I said “yes” and I immediately asked if I could review the Voyage Dark Grey Mélange Changing Bag.
Why we love the toTs by SmarTrike Voyage Changing Bag?
My favourite thing about the toTS by SmarTrike Voyage changing bag is the size; It is spacious and filled with compartments. I love my bags to have compartments as I like everything to have a place. It makes finding things easier. And this is essential when you are juggling a very active pre-schooler and a hungry baby.
This bag contains 10 separate sections plus an additional smaller bag, an insulated bottle bag and a small fold away changing mat. So there is definitely enough room for everything I need to carry when out and about with two children.
I have a mini first aid kit, my purse and keys (there is actually a little clip for my keys) in the front zipped pocket. The big pocket at the back is filled with colouring books and pencils. The compartments inside contain muslins, hats, spare clothes, toys and anything else I might need. Bottles are placed in the insulated pockets and then finally the bag’s changing mat, nappies, wipes and cream go in the smaller additional bag.
This additional bag comes in very handy. It means that I don’t have to carry a big bag into a changing room when Little Mister H needs a change. I also use this bag if I am popping out and only need to take a few bits and pieces with me.
The toTs by SmarTrike Voyage changing bag also comes with hooks and straps so that you can easily attach the bag to your buggy. I think this is a genius idea as I was never able to attach Little Miss H’s changing bag to her buggy.
The bag is made from a special mélange fabric which is stylish and smart. The fabric has an effective water-resistant coating. The contents of the bag stay safe and dry no matter what the weather throws our way.
The fabric is also endurable. We’ve used this changing bag daily for over six months and there are no signs of wear or tear.
The toTs by SmarTrike Dark Grey Mélange Changing Bag has a shoulder strap, handles and backpack straps. I often carry the bag on my back as I have Little Mister H in a wrap. However, this can get uncomfortable as I have broad shoulders and the straps are close together.
Apart from the little issue with the backpack straps I absolutely love this bag. It is gorgeous and practical. It ticks every box. Plus, Mr H is happy because he no longer has to tote around a rucksack covered in pretty pink flowers.
