I’m constantly getting comments on my changing bag and being asked what brand it is, so I thought that now is a good time to sit down and write a post on what brand my bag is and what I carry around within it on a day-to-day basis for five boys and myself.
Having five children I have been through a fair few changing bags and have struggled fitting everything I need for a full day out with the children whilst also being hands free to be able to run around after them especially whilst at the park, so for me I find this to be possibly one of the best bags currently on the market.
My changing bag is the TIBA + MARL MILLER backpack and what a gorgeous bag it is, making the carrying around of baby products a luxurious affair.
When the children get older and im no longer having to carry around products for snotty noses, sticky fingers and toys to entertain this bag is the perfect size for gym items, work or traveling.
TIBA + MARL MILLER backpack made from faux leather with gun-metal hardware, is lightweight but yet large enough to fit everything I need for a day out with the children.
It features padded straps so wearing the bag all day isn’t a problem; with its unisex design and adjustable straps the bag can be easily handed over to partners, grandparents or childcare providers without having to change things over to another bag which is always a bonus, as with children time is always of an essence.
The bag comes complete with a generally sized luxury and very padded changing mat which my 16 month old still has plenty of room lying on whilst having those all important bum changes and also a wet clutch for those wet bibs but can also be used as a cross body bag which has a detachable long strap making it possible to pop my purse and a few mummy essentials in for those unexpected times where i leave little one with someone else to run errands.
The TIBA + MARL Miller is so spacious I haven’t needed to carry my own bag on days out and have been able to fit all my mummy essentials, my toddlers essentials and a few items for the older boys within the backpack making life so much easier and completely hands free.
I don’t class myself as a overpacker, but I am one of those mum’s who carries things around with them for “those just incase” moments when it comes to taking things out for my little ones; and I pack for almost every occasion be it playgroup, park or a lunch date with friends.
So not forgetting im a “just incase mummy”, even though I feel the things I carry around with me could possibly have a purpose one day let me get into what I take out with me for a day with a toddler, a pre-schooler and 3 in full-time school.
