10 Best Changing Bags In 2022

For this post, I have put together a collection of the best changing bags currently available. For all my recommended baby product guides, with top picks, see my list of newborn essentials.

Our Top Pick

My top pick is the Babymel Grace Faux Leather Changing Bag as I like that it looks like a regular handbag, but when you look inside it has all the required compartments for a changing bag. Plus it is made of vegan leather and has great feedback from customers.
