Choosing the Best Baby Pram Bags

Mother and Baby with Lots of Pram Bags Baby pram bags are essential for new parents.

Every time you take a trip with your baby, you need to bring a bucketload of supplies. Even if you’re just taking a short walk to the corner shop, your little one might get hungry, thirsty or could need an emergency trip to the bathroom.
Imagine you’re getting ready for a quick jaunt round the park. The fresh air will be good for you and your tiny tot. You’ve fed, burped and changed the baby and now they’re getting ready for a nap in the buggy.
Twenty minutes into the journey? Your little one wakes up with a case of toilet trouble. You’re too far away from home to do anything about it.
Even when you think you’ve prepared for everything, you can never predict what’s going to happen – or when it might get explosive!
Going outside with your infant doesn’t have to hard when you have one of the best pram bags.
That’s why we’ve prepared our handy guide to choosing the right baby pram bag for you.

5 Top Tips for Buying a Baby Pram Bag

1)    It Should Fit onto Your Pram

It’s important to find a changing bag that fits onto your pram.
Lots of baby bags can be looped over the back of the pram handles. This makes it easier to find baby essentials instead of hiding your bag away in the buggy’s base compartment.
You might get extra support if you buy a pram bag with safety clips to fasten onto your pushchair. Pram bags with buggy clips or buggy hooks can be attached to your pushchair, evenly distributing the bag’s weight. You can also buy extra buggy clips online for when you really want to secure your pram changing bag.

2)    It Should Have Lots of Space

It goes without saying you need a pram changing bag with lots of space for the essentials. Spare nappies, jars, a bottle – just a few of the many baby basics you might require. Good-quality changing bags should have plenty space to fit in anything and everything you could possibly need.

It’s important to be prepared for every eventuality when you take your baby on a trip out. Whether it’s just a short walk into town or a weekend car journey, pram changing bags are great for comfortably carrying all those crucial baby extras.

3)    It Should Have Pockets and Compartments

The best pram bags aren’t just full of space – they have pockets too! The last thing new parents need is a fight on their hands, rummaging for that last spare nappy. Pram changing bags should have lots of extra compartments on the outside and the inside, so you have easy access to anything you might need.
Try to find a pram changing bag with special pockets designed specifically for baby basics, from insulated bottle holder pockets to waterproof compartments that are ideal for carrying baby wipes.
Like all BabaBing! baby changing bags, our latest Tilly Tote has lots of pockets to store keys, wipes, dummies, plus your purse and phone. It even has two internal and external thermally insulated bottle holders. It’s a great choice for busy mums who don’t have time to fumble through the depths of their handbag!
But it’s most important to make sure your baby bag has enough storage pouches for you to keep everything to hand.

4)    It Should Have Thick Adjustable Straps

There’s no doubt that baby changing bags can get heavy! But if you choose a pram bag with thick, adjustable straps, it makes everything easier when out with your baby.

Thick pram bag straps are perfect for hanging your changing bag off the back of your pushchair. Avoid thin straps as they can’t necessarily carry as much weight.

Additionally, choose a changing bag with adjustable straps. You’re likely to be moving around a lot when travelling with your baby and will be constantly in and out of your pram bag. Adjustable straps help when you need to load your baby bag onto your back during changing time, then they can easily slide back to the right length to fit onto your buggy.

5)    It Should Be Easy to Clean

Because they can go anywhere with you and your baby, it’s no surprise that pram changing bags are particularly prone to mess. They can get dirty on the inside and the outside, so it’s important to find a baby bag that’s either wipe clean or washable.

Sticky hands, split formula, grass stains, mud, or perhaps your pram changing bag might get slightly too close to your baby’s little accident – these are just some of the reasons changing bags can get stained or soiled. But your baby’s hygiene is extremely important, so the best pram bags should be easily cleanable to keep germs away.
