Haglöfs Corker as a baby changing bag, by JYC*

This is an amazing sack to use as a baby changing bag, as well as just a normal daysack. In fact, I gave my ‘gold award’ samsonite nappy bag to my sister as I didn’t use it once I realised that I could fit everything into the Corker in a fairly organised way. I have used this sack everyday for the last 10 months, and it shows no sign of wear. I used it as a hospital bag, hence it ended up as a nappy bag. The waist and chest straps worked out great for my sore back. Also, I had it for about a year previous as my school bag for work, and carried folders, my laptop, gardening gear and all sorts in it.

This is a spacious bag for holding nappies, Sudocrem, wipes, change of clothes, food, toys or whatever else you may need. Inside the main compartment is a zipped back section which is perfect to hold a travel sized baby changing matt, and I also keep a tea towel, bibs and muslins in this bit.   The side pockets in the main compartment is the perfect size for holding a bottle in one of the small warmer bags. The side pocket on the other side is full of little sections, which I keep spoons, teethers, Calpol, little clips, parsons powders, Calgel and all the other little bitty things.

My own stuff goes in the pocket at the top, and I can get my coupon filled purse, mobile, house + car keys, lippy, pens and all the other usual handbag junk.

To top all that, there is a clipped bungee at the front of the rucksack, great for strapping on your jacket, a blanket, toys, juice and bottle bag or left spare.

It fits great on the buggy, and slots in really neat without trailing or overbalancing the buggy. It also lies down flat on it’s side when squeezing it into a tiny space in the baby changing.

The only changes I have made to the sack is a coloured tagger on the left side, so I can remember which side has the little sections.  Haglöfs have done a great job with this sturdy, reliable sack, so I thought I should share this with you. The other boost is that it doesn’t look gay and PTC* will quite comfortably carry it around too.
