One of the downsides of holidaying with five young children is the endless visits to public toilets and change rooms, we are going through plenty of hand sanitiser that’s for sure! Changing nappies and cleaning bottoms will never be a fun chore but it has to be done, here’s how to make the job more pleasant:

Melobaby

Australian designer and mother-of-two Melissa decided to give on-the-go nappy changes a trendy makeover and created Melobaby, a stylish range of nappy wallets and accessories that are both fashionable and functional at the same time.

Melobaby Nappy WalletWhether it’s a quick visit to the shops, a walk to the park or an afternoon at grandma’s, the compact Melobaby Nappy Wallet (RRP $64.95) is the ideal size for those small trips with baby. Not only does it have room to hold 4 nappies, wipes and some spare clothes, it also folds out to create a comfortable fleece change mat, no wonder it is called an all-in-one design! Which of the seven different colours/prints is your favourite?

MelototeIf you prefer something bigger and more spacious you can upsize to the award winning Melotote (RRP $99.95 – $149.95). This generously sized baby bag has plenty of pockets inside and out to help you keep all your baby gear neatly organised, it even has two insulated pockets to keep your baby’s food and drinks at the right temperature. The Melotote comes with a complimentary soft and washable change mat for hygienic nappy changes when out-and-about and a matching bottle holder.

If you are a regular Hip Little One reader you probably spotted the eye catching new Avalon Damask print that we featured in last month’s gr8x post. Move over plain and boring baby bags, this beautiful custom print shows that mamas don’t have to give in on style when travelling with their babies. If you’re looking for a spacious bag that will easily hold all your baby essentials this new release will have you swooning:

Ella Carry All

The trendy Ella Carry All (RRP $159.95, available in Twilight Blue and Dove Grey) is measuring a roomy L40cm x W15cm x H30cm in size yet is surprisingly light weight, making it perfect for active mums on the go.

The gr8x design team knows most parents are busy enough as it is, which is why they make sure their baby bags are fitted with lots of little parenting hacks that save you time and hassle. Take for example the high quality nylon outer: it’s strong and durable and can easily be wiped clean with a damp cloth, no tears wasted over sticky fingers or dirty marks.

Ella Carry All BlueAnother great feature is the collection of internal and external pockets in a range of sizes, helping you to keep your nappies, wipes, creams, baby food and other baby must-haves tidy and organised. After all, no mum has time to dig around in the dark depths of her baby bag desperately hoping to find what she is looking for (especially when dealing with a messy emergency!). And how clever are the adjustable stroller clips for use on pram or stroller? Thumbs up for hands free travelling!

Lovely bonus: The Ella Carry All comes with a free quality insulated, zipped bottle traveller and padded change mat in gr8x signature print.
