"For baby and me"

Boots baby changing bag

With the safe delivery of my very first grandson, I joined his mummy in the Boots Parenting club because there were promises of free gifts and bargains to be had.

The first thing we received along with the money off vouchers was a voucher for this Boots baby changing bag, apparently worth £29.99, and made in association with pampers (hence the money off Pampers vouchers). Since I knew that my son's girlfriend already has a changing bag, I knew that this would come to my possession so that I can keep all of baby's things together.

The bag itself is black with two large pockets at the front which have cream flaps to close them, and cream trim around the edges. It is shoulder bag style and the strap is sturdy and adjustable making it a comfortable fit for carrying. It is also not much bigger than a normal large hand bag, so I don't feel as though I am hauling round a rucksack- the added advantage is i can't put too much stuff inside and have to stay organised and travel with essentials.

Inside the bag there is a zipped waterproof flat bag and when I open it, there is a changing mat- great stuff for babies on the move. Although the mat isn't especially thick, it is waterproof and therefore can be kept nice and clean.

Also inside the bag there is a large netted pocket at the back handy for keeping nappies and baby wipes or any paraphanelia you want to keep seperate from the rest. There are some open pockets at the other side of the bag of differing sizes, agin useful for keeping smaller items needed for baby. A useful part of the bag is the thermal bottle pocket which is attached at the side of the bag (inside). This keeps the bottle at the correct temperature and because there is a draw tie, the bottle is kept steady and won't fall out of the pocket. It also means that any size of bottle can be kept in the pocket because if it was zipped then only smaller bottles could be kept in the pocket.

HOW DO I GET ONE...

Anyone expecting a baby can pick up a leaflet at Boots or fill in the form online at www.boots.com. The form just requires expected due date, name address etc, and within a couple of weeks of sending in the information, all of the vouchers arrive in the post.

VERDICT

I like this. Not only was it free with the purchase of a pack of Pampers nappies (with a £1 off voucher included) but it's sturdy, looks good and holds everything I need for little one.

I would highly recommend anyone expecting a baby or with a new born to join the club and get this really useful bag.
Thanks for reading.
