Why i think Backpack changing bags are great – Three Little Imps

When it comes to carting nappies, wipes and every other item your baby requires it is right to choose a bag which fits everything in but remains practical. Sometimes the most visually appealing bags are not the most functional! Three Little Imps premium range black backpack changing bag offers a simple design with plenty of space and functionality for both carers. Which makes it a really great choice when it comes to choosing your changing bag.

Who are Three Little Imps?

Three Little Imps is a family run business founded in Australia in 2011. Since starting the family relocated to southern Europe. The business is a family commitment with the senior members of the family running finance, logistics and general day to day. The junior members of the family 3 boys (which by the way is a close resemblance to my 3 boys) Jack, Tom and Ollie product testing the items! Their aim to provide innovative, smart and stylish baby and toddler accessories. All sourced with suitable prices and from all over the world.

Three little imps contacted me asking if I would like to review their Premium Change bag and accessory kit. Originally I thought no Arthur was no longer in nappies so we no longer needed a change bag. But the bag, it wasn’t your average change bag, it was a backpack and a rather large one at that. Ideal for carting around all the things that go with having a toddler, 5 and 7 year old. It isn’t just for babies or small children!

First Impressions

The bag arrived via Amazon and was packaged well. I took it out and it was larger than I was expecting. To be honest I thought I would receive a bag not that much bigger than a standard backpack but it was larger. It came packed with accessories such as an insulated bottle holder, foldable change mat and durable wet wipe case. So although Arthur is no longer in nappies we can still make use of the accessories which comes included.

The change mat can be used as an emergency seating (think wet bench/muddy ground) it fits compactly in a little pocket within the bag so doesn’t take much room.

The bottle holder is insulated. The idea being it would keep babies milk warm whilst out and about. BUT it could also be used to keep drinks cool. Ideal size for a small sports bottle/water bottle for the boys.

The wet wipe case – When Arthur was in nappies we used cloth wipes so this would have been pretty useless for us, but now the boys are older it would make a great container for tissues!

Using the bag

Packing for 3 boys is a nightmare! luckily for us Arthur is now potty trained so we don’t need to carry nappies with us. Although it doesn’t mean any less stuff to cart! In the bag we packed

  • Spare clothes in a wet bag for Arthur – 2xTrousers, 1xpants, 2xsocks, 1xtop and 1xvest
  • Lunch boxes x3
  • Bottles x3
  • Magazines x3
  • Cloth wipes in a small wet bag (You could fit in a full size disposable wipe pack)
  • Teddy
  • Antibacterial hand gel, Pack of tissues, Deodorant spray, Hair ties, bubbles, and chewing gum in a wet bag
  • Notepad and pen
  • plus the accessory kit that came with the bag – Changing mat, Insulated bottle holder, Plastic wipe case

 

What about nappies?

Three Little Imps also sell a range of cloth nappies and wet bags (which by they way made me extremely happy!) as you know I am a big advocate of Cloth nappies and try and promote them as much as I can especially through my nappy library. You can easily fit a days worth of nappies plus everything else I listed above which basically means you can easily accommodate 4 children with this bag! So lots of room!

On average if you are going out 3 nappies should be adequate so that’s what I packed plus an extra 2 wet bags! (one for clean, one for dirty)

Practicality

The bag is heavy with everything in, but once on your back you can’t feel it. The straps are comfortable and easily adjustable to suit most body frames. Mark is tall and really slim whereas I am a short and fat (let’s face it!) and we both felt at ease with the bag. The straps have buckles so you can attach to a one bar pushchair.

Final Thoughts

The bag retails at £49.95 which isn’t expensive compared to other bags. It has a tonne of pockets and storage and you can literally fill it to the brim without it being too uncomfortable to wear. Plain black appeases to both dads and mums and being a backpack it is easily worn whilst pushing a pram or even baby wearing (oh how I wish I can still wear Arthur!). With the added buckles allowing it to attach securely to prams/pushchairs gives you the flexibility. We loved the bag! and even though my boys are “too old” for a nappy change bag it still caters for them!

    Is it waterproof?

      Good question! one I didn’t cover. It can certainly withstand our British weather!

    That wipe dispenser is so cool! I’m forever rummaging in my bag to get the wipes out haha. Backpacks are just so easy when you haven’t got the pushchair to hang your changing bag on or you need your hands free ox

    I LOVE the wipe dispenser… How cool! I need one of those, I’m always searching in the bag otherwise x

    What a fab bag! I thought you were going to say it was over £100, so really impressed with the price. I’d have loved a bag like this when Alfie was younger.

    This bag looks great, I’m a sucker for a decent nappy bag to be honest! Plus I’m slightly in love with the wipe dispenser!!

    These look fantastic. They would be great for baby wearing too. Will definitely check them out.

    At first, I use to detest backpacks, but fast forward a few years and I love them, so easy for when you have kids plus you can get some stylish ones just like this.

    These are fab and a nice alternative to traditional changing bags!
