When I had my first son almost seven years ago I didn’t have one of these fancy change bags that you see on the market today. The bag I had was simply one pocket which caused no end of nightmares when it came to locating anything at any one time. I remember fishing through it one handed whilst juggling a baby and constantly becoming frustrated when I couldn’t find exactly what I needed. I vowed from that moment that if I ever had another baby I would make sure that my change bag was accessible and practical and I may have just found the perfect solution with my Ju-Ju-Be BFF.
The Ju-Ju-Be BFF has everything you need all wrapped up in a gorgeous looking change bag. With the BFF you won’t need to carry an additional handbag or bottle bag because you can do everything with this one item which I just LOVE!
The inside of my Ju-Ju-Be BFF is a light gold coloured fabric which makes finding items that whole world easier. On darker fabrics items just seem to become lost in an abyss and when you are in a rush with a screaming baby every little helps right? Inside the bag there is a large open space as well as three zippered pockets and four gusseted pockets making it easy to organise items accordingly. There is also a specially designed pocket to hold your phone which avoids having to locate it amongst baby paraphernalia. There is also a large back pocket which is perfect for storing items like wipes or nappies that you need easy access to. The Ju-Ju-Be BFF comes with a memory foam changing mat which matches the pattern of the bag. The mat is soft and comfortable which will make changing out in public much easier!
There is a front pocket which is called the ‘Mummy Pocket’ which is ideal for storing items like keys, sunglasses, cash, lipstick etc etc!
There are two exterior pockets which are insulated making them perfect for storing bottles you want to keep warm or cold. Having them located here avoids them rolling around at the bottom of the bag and spilling!
The bottom of the bag is structured with luggage style feet which means it stands up on its own without collapsing in on itself which helps when routing through one handed.
I picked the Ju-Ju-Be BFF in The Admiral style which is a dark navy blue with a gold anchor pattern throughout. The hardware is all gold metal and clearly made to last which is reassuring considering what a change bag can end up going through! You can wear the BFF as a messenger style change bag or as a backpack using the additional detachable shoulder straps which mean you can carry the bag and be hands free!
What Did I Think?
Size wise I was very impressed with the amount of space and room the Ju-Ju-Be BFF offers without the bag being excessively big and bulky! Before filling the bag isn’t heavy which means you could confidently load it up without worry that it will weigh a tonne! I liked that the bag came with an additional changing mat that matches the pattern and design I felt this was a nice touch. It’s also great having the option to wear the bag in different ways using the detachable straps especially as babies become more mobile you want to have your hands free as much as possible.
I think the design is very modern and ideal for use when Daddy takes the baby out as well as becoming a staple Mummy item! My absolute favourite feature is the fact the bag is machine washable because after use change bags can become grubby and marked and if they are surface wash only it can be difficult to get them looking clean again. The bag is also covered with a Teflon fabric protector which helps avoid stains. An Agion treatment on the inside lining prevents odour causing bacteria, mould and mildew.
The overall feel of the bag is good quality that will last through out those baby and toddler years. You want to have confidence that the bag you are using can withstand a fair amount of use and I definitely feel that the Ju-Ju-Be can offer that.
