Is my son too old for a baby changing bag

2 CommentsWednesday, 16 November 2016  | 

At 29 months old Joey is a fully fledged, terrible two's toddler. He definitely isn't a baby anymore, but i still use changing bags. Is their a cut off point to not need to use a changing bag anymore?
I only have two changing bags, a rather big Pink Lining yummy mummy and then a Mini yummy mummy which is a perfect on the go bag for a mum to a toddler. I ten to not need the bigger of the two bags unless we're going out for the whole day.
Recently when i posted an image on social media of my two changing bags one of the comments was "Do you still use a changing bag? I couldn't wait to get rid of mine. Little rucksacks it is now". The question didn't bother me, everybody has their own preferences but it was the reason for me writing this post. Is their a particular age to stop using changing bags? Is it as soon as the child turns 1? I’m sure that the person’s comment wasn’t any kind of an insult and she is purely just curious. Joey does have his own little backpack that i bought him for nursery last year but he hasn’t used it since he left nursery in February. I’m not sure how i feel about him having a bag for himself and wearing it. He doesn’t need much anyway when we’re out so usually my bag is packed for the both of us.

Don't get me wrong, i have missed using my lovely prebaby handbags but it's only within the last few months that I've discovered some amazing changing bags that look like any regular ladies handbag. While I'm ready to let go of my Pink Linking changing bag that I've had since Joey was born i don't think i want to completely rule out buying changing bags that aren't babyish.

I'd love to know what you think. Do you think once a child gets to a certain age you should stop using changing bags?

Well Lauren my kids are 10 + 11 and I use the Jem + Bea Amber and the Notting Hill tote Pink Lining Black cabs still - however they don't look like baby changing bags they are just lovely hand bags - so my answer is NEVER! :)

I agree on never haha. These leather ones are nicer than any pre baby handbag that I had.
I have also noticed the majority of women with only a toddler use a small cross body for themselves and a small rucksack for their little one. Personally I think it would be more of a faff with two bags and I can't stand all the ugly cheap bags about. They look very tacky In my opinion. Jodie x
