Mum-to-be Diary: The PacaPod changing bag

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page


I must be honest I have been very excited about receiving my PacaPod changing bag partly because they are so popular they have been sold out, therefore I recommend ordering yours now!

Jacque line Waggett, Creator of PacaPod realised that there was a gap in the market for great-looking and practical baby bags. She had been “disappointed with many of the baby bags on offer to new parents: often, a lack of different compartments meant that things were difficult to find and many of the design options were not ideal if Dad wants to take the baby out.” She launched PacaPod at Harrogate Nursery Trade Show in 2008 since which it has been snapped up by parents and celebrities alike such as Chris Hemsworth, Benedict Cumberbatch, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Alesha Dixon, Rosie Huntington-Whitely and Zara Phillips.

All the PacaPod designs feature a 3-1 functionality and come in a variety of sizes shapes and styles. I personally love the Croyde range available in black or pewter. You would be forgiven for not realising it is in fact a changing bag as it is that chic. With a canvas outer and faux leather trims, the rich gold hardware give this bag a classic appeal.


Its is great for a weekend getaway, travelling or for those who want a larger changing bag, unlike the other Pacapods this one has 3 pods inside which are designed to help you with check-ins, travel  and general organisation- perfect if leaving the baby with your partner!

The vast array of features, including a large expanding pocket on the inner, mini map print pod and two large pockets on the outer, mean necessities need never be far and can be grabbed on the go when you need them most. The Pods are all colour co-ordinated as well so the see through one is great for liquids when travelling  Designed with an across body strap, and shoulder or carry handles, you will always be able to travel with the utmost ease and comfort.

As with all PacaPods this has an insulated feeder pod and changer pod. The Croyde is littered with features including an expandable pocket inside and an across the body strap as well as shoulder handles.
