Gravy Review

It must have been fate because just the day before Love Gravy's email arrived telling me about The Fullmoon, I had been browsing DJs for a new nappy change mat. Finding nothing I really liked, I went home empty-handed and empty-hearted.

Ha! I kid, I kid. Fear not dear readers, my little heart is still jam-packed, full to the brim, but I was in a genuine spot of bother regarding what to do about nappy changes on the go. For each pregnancy, I have treated myself to a new nappy bag but this time, I've been struggling to justify it. Because the handbag I am currently using? Is HUGE. There is room for all the nappy changing stuff AND the baby. Possibly also the two year old. It's seriously big. And I really like it because it's NOT a nappy bag.

So. What to do? Surely I just needed a change mat to go in the enormous bag? Nappies and wipes could just be chucked in like an afterthought.

Harlow is 9 weeks old and I have been operating without a change mat of any description and as you may have guessed, the 'nappies and wipes thrown in' scenario amounts to total chaos. I can never find what I need in that huge bag. Extra chaos at nappy change time? Not cool.

So the timing of the Gravy Bags email? Impeccable.

Enter Baby Change Station, The Fullmoon.

Gravy Review 1

 

This bag is seriously nifty. It's totally cute but not embarrassingly so. I personally had no issue making Bren carry my first nappy bag which was a charming floral but I know some daddies cling fiercely to their masculinity and for them, The Fullmoon is perfectly gender neutral. Black and cerise, people, black and cerise, which is totally not pink. 

 

Gravy Review 2

A small bag, you might be thinking. And you'd be right. It is totally small – it certainly takes up very little room in my enormous handbag. But it's a stand alone unit with handle that can be thrown in the car or in the pram basket. Made from tough and easy to clean polyester, The Fullmoon measures W265mm x H155mm x D120mm but check out what's inside.

 

Gravy Review 3

Yep, that's four nappies, a travel pack of wipes, a travel pack of waste bags and room for cream or powder, too. AND the change mat – made from machine-washable neoprene (think the material they use in wetsuits…or stubby holders).  The mat magnetically attaches to the bag so that everything is within reach – and it's designed to be a one-handed grab which is important because babies are so roll-y, fall off table-y when they have no pants on, don't you find?

My only quibble with the whole set-up is that possibly the mat is a titch small and in the event of a super nappy blow-out kind of change, it might get dirty and require a machine-wash whereas the PVC models can be wiped clean on the spot. As I said, a small quibble, and given the mat size and material are what ensures the compact nature of The Fullmoon, easy to forgive. 

Genuinely, I am a fan of this little bag and it's exactly what I didn't know I was looking for -  a complete baby change station that's compact and functional. But what sold me even before The Fullmoon arrived in the mail (never thought I'd type those words in a sentence) was the clever little demo video Love Gravy made. I'm going to go out on a limb and say the hands shown in the video belong to a man – and frankly, seeing a man handle baby changing gear with such expertise is worth watching…and then there's the jaunty little tune that accompanies the action. 

 

 

 

Priced at $74.95 (or order one fully stocked with nappies, wipes, bags and powder for $84.95), you can pick up The Fullmoon by visiting the Gravy website.

I’m Angie!  I mum. I write. I wife. My husband would say this is the correct order.  He’s so neeeedy. I live with my family in Melbourne, Australia, where I complain about the weather for 90% of the year – but I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Except maybe in Lake Como, waving to my neighbours George and Amal each morning.

    Oh my LORD! I’ve been searching and searching and searching (etc.) for a new nappy bag. I always hated my first one (nappy bag, that is, not child!) because it was so bulky and awkward – but still didn’t hold much more than this one will.

    WANT!

    So – 12 month warranty (bonus!). And I’ve ‘liked’ their page 🙂
