​The 10 changing bag essentials

July 21, 2018


The arrival of a baby rarely happens without a changing bag alongside it. Halfway between a classic handbag and a weekender, a bit like a mini suitcase that goes everywhere with the baby, a changing bag contains all the essentials. We have listed 10 tips to help you take care of it as soon as you leave the house!

1. Nappies

This is the fundamental base. It seems obvious but you'll soon be left without if you don't check how many are left on a regular basis!

2. Wipes

Even if you follow a daily nappy rash cream regime, wipes will make your life easier. They can also be used when children are older, to clean their hands (and indeed yours). We use ones with the most natural ingredients possible, of course.

3. Studio Romeo baby carrier

To keep things light, slip a Studio Romeo baby carrier into your bag!

4.  Muslin cloth

You could even say Muslins plural; they can be used for everything. A light blanket, sunshade, breastfeeding cover, play mat, changing blanket...

5. Food and drink

Depending on what time you leave, do not forget the food for the baby. Remember to take a snack in a pot (such as a compote...) or an extra serving of milk on top, in case you're delayed. In summer, never leave without a bottle of water!

6.change of clothes

Small accidents happen all the time with a baby and it is better to have a change in the bag so you can avoid hiding away! In the summer, pack a hat and sunglasses in the bag as well.

7. Games

You do not need to bring your whole toy box with you, but you will be glad to have a book or toy on hand to keep your baby occupied if needs be.

8.  A mini first aid kit

Saline solution and compresses for the little ones, arnica ointment, disinfectant and dressings for the older ones; it can always help!

9. Small bin bags

Having somewhere to put nappies or dirty clothes is always a good idea.

10. Teddy and/or dummy

Last but not least, everything depends on your baby!

Find our iconic changing bag , available in two shades, All Black and Beige, on our e-shop. Both are made of cotton canvas, the first is also leather, while the second is vegan, with cork. A chic and understated changing bag, for storing all baby's essentials without compromising mummy's style!


Size guide

1. WHICH SIZE SHOULD I CHOOSE?

Our baby carriers are currently available in two sizes : T1 and T2. The fabric is stretchy enough to adapt as best as possible to both the wearer's and the baby's bodies. 

Generally, T1 suits sizes from S to M and T2 suits larger sizes.


Important: The fabric will soften and relax during use and as the baby grows. It’s normal that the baby carrier feel a little snug during the first use.

And since each body is unique, you can try it quietly at home to see if it suits you and if not, you can send it back for a refund ;)

2. THE SIZE IS TOO SMALL - BABY IS TOO SQUASHED

You may experience a feeling of tightness but the goal is ultimately that the baby is held firmly against you and does not move, just like with a classic carrier. For the newborn position, depending on the morphology of both the baby and the wearer, it can quickly become restrictive. You can therefore place them into the sitting position early by respecting their physiological position and the natural spacing of their hips. The seating position will feel less snug as the legs will be out.

Also, do not hesitate to flatten the fabric on your back to leave more on the front.

Important: The fabric will soften and relax during use and as the baby grows.

3. THE SIZE IS TOO LARGE - BABY IS TOO LOW

Indeed your child should not be too low, or at least the position should remain as comfortable for them as it is for you and your baby should remain within reach for kisses. If this is not the case, you can make a loop with the fabric on each shoulder. You can make a loop by twisting the side of the scarf and reversing the hems so that the fabric is shortened and the baby is slightly lifted (see video section).

You can also wash your sling (30° or Warm setting in the washing machine) so that the fabric shrinks back to the original size (the product cannot be reimbursed once washed).
