Vanchi Victoria Shopper Review | Nappy Bags Australia

Thursday, February 26th, 2015

Recently Totsntales conducted a nappy bag review on the Vanchi Victoria Shopper changing bag. Overall we discovered that this designer diaper bag is very spacious and a suitable nappy bag for parents of twins or multiple children. For mums that like to pack everything into their nappy bag but have only one child, this substantial baby bag is also well worth your consideration.

Not only is this nappy bag very spacious but it is also offers highly sophisticated organisation which we have come to expect of Australian nappy bag designer, Vanchi. Vanchi nappy bags offer parents great value for money, yet they never compromise on style or functionality.

A recent customer review that we received for the Vanchi Victoria shopper in tan:

“I love my new baby bag. I never find myself digging around in the bag trying to locate the nappies, clothing, food, bottles etc. The mummy pouch is fantastic and my saviour when I need to change baby’s nappy in a hurry! I also like that this bag looks more like a handbag than a nappy bag – I receive flattering comments whenever I venture out with this bag.”

Unique features to note for this baby changing bag:

* Mummy Pouch – a large zippered compartment, which conveniently separates the bag into 2 large compartments
* Lots of internal elasticised pockets and external zippered/magnetic closure pockets
* Signature Vanchi dummy key chain
* 12 month warranty
* Padded change mat, dummy pouch, insulated bottle holder, wipes case.

Currently Totsntales has a Vanchi nappy bag sale at the moment, so be sure to check out the full range today.

Things to Pack in Your Diaper Bag

Sunday, January 12th, 2014

The questionnaire

First time parent? Are you confused about what to pack in your nappy bag? Let us guide you through from the basics, to the essential items to have in your nappy bag.

When you have a new baby, your diaper bag is your lifeline to anything and everything you need. Have you full stocked your nappy bag? Are you sure you are getting everything your baby needs? Are you stuffing too much unnecessary items in your nappy bag?

Here are some items you can pack in your diaper bag to make sure you are prepared for whatever may come up when you go outside with your baby.

An obvious one to have in your diapers (nappies). How many diaper bags you need depends on how long you are going to be out, how old your baby is, how is your baby feeling at the moment. On small trips, you’ll need about 6 to 10 diapers, but this also depends on how long you’ll be out. To be safe, don’t forget the rule when packing diapers: Pack more diapers than you think you will need.

Bottles and/or Breastfeeding Gear
Another obvious essential to have in your nappy bag. Have plenty of bottles and formula on hand or any breastfeeding items you need for feeding. Don’t forget to have a bottle of water and remember to pack more than you think you need.

Burp Cloths
A burp cloth is a small, soft cloth used to clean up spit when the baby has burped. Stuff one or two in your diaper bag or even more of these specially if you are already feeding your baby with solid foods.

Changing Pad
If you have read our guide about choosing the right diaper bag, then your nappy bag should have a changing pad built in. If you take it out to use at home or in your friend’s house, remember to always check that you have it in your bag before you go anywhere.

Baby Wipes
Wipes are handy to have in your nappy bag. They are great for cleaning your own hands before and after changing your baby’s diaper and it can be used to remove stains from clothes and furniture.

Diaper rash ointment
Always carry with you a tube of diaper rash ointment to use as a layer of protection and to protect your baby against diaper rash. It also helps soothe your baby’s bottom in case a rash develops.

Spare clothes
Always be prepared for the worst. Pack a spare outfit or two for your baby and remember to pack an extra shirt for you too.

Depending on how long you are planning to be out, be sure to have ziplock bag (wet bag) for baby diapers, one to two blankets, pacifiers, toys, teething rings, first aid kit, tissues, lotion with high SPF, some medicines to alleviate pain and fever, snacks for you and your baby, tissues, and a somecash in case of emergencies.

This is what mum’s are saying about the Tummy Tie:

“It’s great because it’s discreet and comfortable and the comfort factor is definitely something I am loving at the moment especially when you have to sit down. I know I will be living in this throughout the coming months of my pregnancy. It’s great…. I can still wear my favourite jeans” Sacha

“If I had only known about your product during my last pregnancy it would have saved me so much money on buying new clothes, it’s fantastic! I’ve never worn anything like it, I actually put it on straight away when I got it yesterday, I had these shorts on that were a little too tight, but after putting on the tummytie they were perfect again! I’m so impressed with it, thank you.” Vanessa
