The Babymule changing bag comes with three different ways to carry: fully supportive backpack, stylish messenger or clip to your buggy. The bag comes complete with all the different products you need for you and your baby, including a changing pouch, changing mat, bottle insulator and a wet bag in a handy purse.

The bag has plenty of pockets and mini-bags to make life that little bit more organised, and space for anything else you may need to bring out and about. The bag is suitable (both appearance-wise and design-wise) for either a mum or a dad, and comes in a range of different colours that suit both parents.

The bag is durable and practical no matter where you’re going. Despite not being a particularly colourful or eye-catching bag, it certainly provides you with all the essentials, and means that you can use it even when your little one is all grown up, as a regular bag. The bag is machine washable, making cleaning easy for busy mums.

Although being quite an expensive bag, it provides parents with everything they need no matter where they’re going, with its practical design and multiple handy features.

Would you recommend the Babymule to other mums?    

This change bag is AMAZING!!! I would recommend this bag to any of my mummy friends (and it's perfect for daddies too as they love a good rucksack! Hubby said he would 100% use it if it was the plain one not patterned). I love it as you can fit so much in and they have thought of everything and the quality is excellent!

How did this product make your life easier?     

Why did I not know about this bag sooner!! I am in love! It's so practical. I am a mummy of two boys, one’s being potty trained and one 15 month old so as you can imagine I still need a lot of space in a bag as I still carry two changes of clothes, nappies and toys! I also walk everywhere as I don't drive. This bag make my daily life so much easier as I can wear this bag as a rucksack and keep my pram basket free for my shopping. It's comfortable to wear and looks pretty!

Would you choose this product to win?

The reason I would chose this bag before the others is because it is so practical yet still looks good! It is machine washable (let’s face it our change bags get a lot of abuse)!! It also has a handy purse, bottle bag, change mat and the straps make it very comfortable to wear as a rucksack. For you mummy's like me who wouldn't usually use a rucksack as they not very girly, this is for you! It would be fab for the airport!

What changes would you make to this product?

If I really had to pick something that could be improved it would be the main zip - I'd prefer if it opened down a little further to make it slightly easier to get stuff in and out if you’re holding baby in one hand and only have one hand free, but this wouldn't put me off the bag as it has so many positives!! LOVE LOVE LOVE this bag!

Would you recommend the Babymule to other mums?    

I would definitely recommend this bag as it would be the only bag you would need from birth onwards. Its neat design hides a multitude of options for wear and use. The separate pockets and attachments make it so simple to stay organised and everything has been well thought out in this bag (e.g. the nappy pouch that doubles as a cool bag). Also having been a keen walker before having kids this bag is perfect for a day out hiking with kids or picnics as the shoulder and waist straps make it so comfortable and supportive to wear.

How did this product make your life easier?     

I think the different pockets make life as a parent so much easier even with multiple kids this bag encourages organization of all the equipment and extras you need when you leave home with kids. I found while holding a crying hungry baby and entertaining a toddler that I could locate a bottle and snack in record time with one hand because of the layout of the bag and all pockets.

Would you choose this product to win?

I definitely would choose this bag to win because of its durability to grow with your family from birth onwards. I look forward to using this bag in later years too for days out and picnics or days at theme parks. Because the bag doesn't stand out as a baby bag it definitely will get alot more use them a traditional baby bag.

What changes would you make to this product?

A broader range of colours might make it more appealing but I am definatly happy with the colour I had. I think maybe a short feature video showing all the fab uses for the bag might help to show consumers that this product is definatly value for money and a long term investment. Overall I found this bag well designed and very well thought out for its uses.

Would you recommend the Babymule to other mums?    

I really love this bag and they have come along so much since bags were years ago. It's a lovely colour and design and is waterproof. I can't believe you can use it in more than one way, what an ingenious idea! This is great for when I'm with the children and out with the dog. It's a very spacious bag with lots of different zipped compartments that are all easy to access whether it be on the stroller or on my back. All parts can be hidden when using it in the other style. Brilliant that it also comes with bottle holder, changing mat and wet clothes bag so no need to buy anything else.

How did this product make your life easier?     

This bag makes my life so much easier when I'm out with the children and dogs as I'm usually having to juggle everything. If I go out without the stroller I usually have a bag falling off my shoulder whilst picking up you know what 😬 But with this bag I can wear it as a rucksack and it's completely comfortable to wear. I am also able to keep the dog in more control and look after the children with ease. I'm a lot more relaxed as everything is so much more easier. I can even fit my dog poo bags in it!

Would you choose this product to win?

The Babymule is truly fantastic. Having the option of how you want to use it and in more than one different way is pretty amazing. This bag raises the bar against others in my opinion. There's no needing of "different bags for different situations", this bag meets all criteria and ticks all the right boxes.

What changes would you make to this product?

This is such a difficult question for me to answer as I can hand on heart say there is nothing I would change. The only thing I could think of is to say to be to make it a little cheaper as it does seem to be quite a hefty price but we'd all like things cheaper than they are. Brilliant bag with no faults.
