Oi Oi Change Mat Kit...

I realised I needed one of these 'On the go' bags when I used my baby carrier (baby bjorn synergy) for the first time. I tried to use my 'normal' bag but it was just too bulky and not practical. I hunted for a travel change mat that doubles as a whole change system and came across this one. I opted for this navy number with butterflies from OiOi.

It looks a little like a clutch bag..


It has a strap that goes around your wrist which is perfect for those quick trips out.

It has...
  • Space for 2-3 nappies
  • Zip away plastic pocket for wipes
  • Outer zip pocket for keys, wallet, phone etc
  • Easy Velcro closure
  • Easy to wipe clean water resistant fabric
  • Height: 59cm (23”), Width: 80cm (311/2”)



It opens up to be a decent size, and has really proved useful for me.


I usually carry about 3 nappies, but I can fit 4. I pop some wipes, hand sanitizer, cream and nappy bags in the zip compartment and sometimes fold a layer of clothes in between just before I fold the bag up. I even fit my baby record (red book) in between when I'm taking a trip to the doctors.




Here's the back to store all of the essentials.

However, I have noticed one flaw. When you stuff all of your belongings in the zip compartment and then unfold it to put baby on it, it's all lumpy bumpy and not a smooth surface for baby to lie on, it's not that bad as it's padded but still something to consider. Apart from that I LOVE it.



I purchased my bag from Baby Lurve for £30, but this colourway is no longer available but have found this website that sells it for £27.50.

Check out the full collection of change mats from OiOi HERE.

'Pink Lining' and 'Skip Hop' do similar style bags and are also worth checking out depending on your taste.

Do you have an 'on he go' bag alongside your normal 'baby bag'?

I am going to do a review of my Skip Hop Studio nappy bag very soon so keep an eye out for that.

That looks fab. I need one of these for when we use our carrier too, but hardly any are big enough for reusable nappies which is a bit of a pain!x

I adore my Skip Hop version. Has seen me through two children and still looks as good as new. As I breast fed I never needed to carry loads of stuff with me where ever I went I just had one of these and a spare change of clothes in my handbag.
