Review: Coco BabyBeau Changing Bag


Last weekend an exciting early Christmas present turned up at my door! We were sent the BabyBeau Coco Changing Bag in Taupe to review. Before Amelia was born I was never a huge handbag fan if I'm honest, of course I owned a few but I never got excited over them that was until I had Amelia and my love for changing bags was born!


BabyBeau was founded in 2012 by Rebecca Gono, an expecting mother on a quest to find a stylish, yet practical changing bag in time for her new arrival. She knew exactly what she wanted, a beautiful changing bag that hid its true function - a designer handbag that did so much more than simply look good! Rebecca then decided to design a range of changing bags that truly catered for the absence of fashion. 

The inspiration behind the Coco Changing Bag comes from the designers passion for motherhood. She wanted to showcase her felinity, passion and creative flair and opted for the dusty pink tone and sumptuously soft grain leather to do so. Coco also comes in the colour Taupe and Red. Coco is everything you want from a changing bag, chic, compact and practical! 


Upon opening the package I was greeted with this beauty! Isn't it just gorgeous! I just love how stylish and fashionable it looks. The Coco changing bag is very practical and spacious inside which can be used as a tote bag or a compact fold-over satchel. It actually looks much bigger than it does on the website so I was rather pleased when it arrived. There's plenty of room for all of your baby essentials and more for your own! I was surprised when the bag was full it was still very lightweight which is always a bonus.

Details:
• Soft grain leather crossbody satchel
• Gold hardware
• Lightweight and Spacious 
• Adjustable strap
• Secure zipped pocket beneth the fold
• Converts into a full sized tote
• Removable BabyBeau organiser 
• Water resistant interior 
• Leatherette changing mat 
• Leatherette bottle holder 
• Detachable zip pocket pouch 
•  Dust Bag 
• Converts to regular handbag


There is a small zipped pocket on the front of the bag which is perfect for storing my phone or keys as well as any other everyday essentials. It saves me opening the bag up all the way which is great when I'm in a hurry. 


The main section of the bag is secured with a zip and has gold buttons to secure the inside together if you wish. The shoulder strap is easily adjustable and attachable and can also be attached to the pushchair with buggy clips. 


The inside BabyBeau organiser contains a multitude of pockets. The organiser is easily removable and can also be used as a separate baby bag for the beach, for daddy, grandma or the nanny and once baby is older, the changing bag can be used as a luxury handbag for mum, bonus! I really do love this feature of the bag and can see it being used regularly. This is also great for being able to wash the inside of the bag as sometimes food/drink gets spilt inside the bag and can get stained. 


I love the design of this bag and the wipe clean linings make it a mums dream handbag. BabyBeau changing bags come equipped with a removable BabyBeau organiser. Inside the BabyBeau organiser is two medium sized stretchy pockets to the front for babies clothes, two stretchy side bottle holder pockets. To the back of the organiser are two medium compartments plus one large compartment with a button fastener and a secure zipped pocket. What I love the most about this organiser is the fact that it is a separate bag in itself and can be worn as a handbag by attaching 
the adjustable shoulder straps included with the tote bag to the side of the BabyBeau organiser. 


The detachable zipped bag is a lovely addition and can be used to store mummy's bits and pieces to keep them separate and easily accessible. I like to keep my cards and money in there when I don't take my purse out with my. We don't have any use for the bottle holder although I must say it is beautiful and I can definitely see it being great for younger babies or bottle fed babies. 


Overall I would highly recommend this beautiful Changing bag to any mum looking for a bag which is stylish, practical, fashionable and will get many years of use. It's also perfect for use all year round and will go with pretty much any outfit as it's neutral. I've had so many compliments this week when we've been out and about. 

You can purchase your own Coco Changing Bag here which is currently on offer at £149! Maybe you could treat yourself to a late Christmas present? Take a look at their website, you will fall in love with their collections - just like I did.

    1. Hi Vicky, having not had it too long yet I haven't got it dirty yet. However little one did smear her hand prints over the front and I wiped it clean with a baby wipe and it was fine. I will have to let you know how I get on if it does stain over time however you can take the inside out to wash it:)

  39. I wish we had had beautiful bags like this when I had my babies. I had a travel bag with lots of pockets and caused a bomb scare in Oxford when I put it down in a car park to put the baby in the travel seat and drove off without it.
