As a new mom, I feel like diaper bags are kind of like strollers. It’s really hard to find “the one”…that one bag that does it all. Well, I have to say that thanks to Munchkin, I have a product that helps me turn most any bag into a good one!
The Munchkin Diaper Change Pouch comes with an easy to fold and unfold changing mat, a small zip container for wipes, and room for 3 or 4 diapers. It has a magnetic close that holds securely and a handy wrist strap that makes it easy to hook onto the stroller or even just carry on its own. The pouch is made out of a material that is SUPER easy to wipe clean (a very important plus when we’re talking about anything related to diaper changing). The changing pad is considered “oversized” and my pretty “tall” 11-month-old fits nicely, so I agree.
I go back and forth between a few different “diaper bags” depending on how long we’re going to be out, will we need to eat, etc. Having the Munchkin Diaper Pouch has helped make that transition so much easier. It can fit into my purse (admittedly not a small one), into our smaller messenger bag, or into the huge gone for an entire day type of bag. It’s very easy to move from one bag to the next.
My only complaint about this set is the zipper on the wipes pouch. The very first time I went to zip it up, it broke. It is designed to work just like a small zipper. Instead, I now have to very carefully line the edges up and seal it like a plastic baggy. I didn’t contact Munchkin about this, so they may have offered a solution. It’s not too big of a deal for me though because I tend to carry a big supply of wipes wherever we go since they can be used for anything. I can still seal the Munchkin wipes pouch if needed, so it still works.
I’ve really enjoyed having the Munchkin Diaper Pouch. It has made changing on the go a lot easier and enjoyable (if diaper changing can ever be considered “enjoyable”). This is a super helpful tool for any mom and a great gift for new moms or at a baby shower. It’s available at most stores and is reasonably priced. Although Munchkin has several authorized online sellers, I couldn’t find this exact product on any of their sites. I found it on Amazon though and I know I have seen it when I’ve been out and about. It also seems like Munchkin has a different version of the same product. You can see it here. Maybe I’ll have to test that one out too!
