One thing no one tells you when you're expecting: a baby needs a lot of stuff. We're talking Moses baskets, baby monitors, changing mats AND play mats, baby blankets, bath seats – and that's not even all the things you need inside the house. Venturing beyond your front door with your little one in tow requires its own exhaustive list. And top of that list is a baby changing bag.

Sorry mamas, the days of leaving the house with just your phone and keys tucked into your pocket are long gone. Now, you need a bag that packs your own essentials plus nappies, wipes, muslins, dummies, formula, bibs, tissues, snacks, milk, water, more snacks, teething toys (all babies love Sophie La Giraffe FYI) and the kitchen sink. We told you, exhausting.

There are a host of fashion-forward brands leading the way with changing bags that are both practical and stylish!

In a hurry? Here are the best baby changing bags at a glance. Keep scrolling for the full list...

Consider the best baby changing bag your emergency evacuation bag. Every time you leave the house you'll want this bag glued to your hip (or back, if you opt for a backpack style) – your pram organiser alone won't suffice. Risk leaving it behind and we guarantee you will get caught short without a nappy in a supermarket car park. Trust us, we've been there.

Luckily, most baby changing bags are durable, hardwearing and come with loads of brilliant pockets, so they should last well beyond the baby years and can easily be transformed into a work bag (the nappy compartment often fits a small laptop) or a gym bag.

Before you start shopping, it's worth considering what type of baby changing bag will suit your growing family's needs.

Carrying a rucksack around might hark back to your schooldays. But trust us, when you're juggling a tired little one, emergency snacks, spare clothes and that all-important hot coffee around town, you will appreciate the freedom carrying everything on your back leaves your arms and hands.

If you're not keen on rucksacks or you're looking for a versatile option that you can also use for work, opt for a crossbody bag. Some can even be converted from a shoulder bag to a hands-free carrier when you need.

A tote or bucket style baby changing bag is a great option for working mamas. They often come with multiple pockets for all the essentials, ideal for busy days out. Make sure to look for designs that come with pushchair clips to lighten the load when you go via the supermarket on your way home.

Active mamas or larger families will appreciate a holdall changing bag, which often comes with detachable crossbody straps, multiple pockets and space for your gym kit.

This scaled-down changing bag is basically a carrier that attaches to your pushchair handlebars. But trust us, when you're rummaging around for your purse on the way to the local coffee shop with a hungry baby in tow, it will become your best friend.

If your pushchair gets a lot of use, it's worth checking if the brand also stocks an accompanying bag (see Bugaboo and Babyzen). Most leading buggy brands make changing bags in matching fabric that fits perfectly onto your travel system of choice with ease. And we're all about an easy life.

If you're a busy mama, it’s also worth investing in a smaller pouch or clutch bag for those times when you might only need a scaled-down option for nappy changes on the move.

In case we haven't hammered home the point that this bag will be with you for the long haul, we'll say it again: invest in a baby changing bag you love enough to not mind carrying it around with you everywhere. It's also worth considering the following pointers:
