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:


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.

Now that the twins are out of nappies I can run out the door with next to nothing, what a welcome change after 3 years of dragging a complete nursery along. Some wipes, a dummy, a nappy for baby and a nappy sack are all I need so instead of a bulky nappy bag I can now get away with a compact Nappy Wallet from Charlie Bloome.

Charlie Bloome’s new Nappy Wallets have been designed by mums for mums (and dads) so you know that they are fitted with lots of clever features. From the outside the Nappy Wallet looks exactly like, well, a wallet but just a bit bigger. The neutral brown colour is suitable for both mums and dads and the clip lets you attach the wallet to your pram or bike so you can really keep your hands free. The outside zip pocket offers a handy storage space for your phone and car keys.

On the inside you’ll find a generous sized fold out change mat that can be wiped clean, as well as a zip pocket and a mesh pocket to store nappies, wipes and other little necessities you might need when out. It is hard to believe but all this comes with the small measurements of just 30 x 20cm (closed) and the teeny price tag of $18, you won’t find a better price elsewhere!

Anyone who knows me will know that I always tend to bring much more than needed but even with a few add-ons the Charlie Bloome Nappy Wallet still has room and the strap on the outside keeps everything nice and snug together without the risk of popping open (unlike other wallets that close with velcro). A perfect design for busy parents on the go, it can hold all you need and hardly takes up any room.
