    Parental Unit Stroller straps

    I am patiently waiting for two things: the arrival of my first baby (!), and for the Parental Unit to be available in Black Halcyon/Ultraviolet. I see that the stroller straps are now available for order- can anyone tell me more about them? Anyone tested them out?

    Also, can anyone recommend a changing pad that fits well into the bag?

    Thanks!

    Can I suggest an alternative to a changing pad? Every changing pad we ever tried was pretty useless. They tended to be too short, too narrow or just weirdly shaped and bulky.
    Instead of a changing pad, we started using the flannel receiving blankets or the muslin swaddle wraps (once our baby was too old for swaddling). The blankets are lightweight enough that you can carry a couple with you, you can use them as a blanket, spreading out on the ground to give your baby a place to crawl and play, or covering a public changing area to avoid germs and mess.

    As an added bonus, if you have a normal changing table or changing pad at home, you can fold up one of those blankets or wraps to put down if your kid has an extra messy diaper. It's *much* easier to wash a receiving blanket or muslin wrap than it is to have to wash a changing pad cover.

      Agreed! I just found a folding changing pad that has been in my attic for four years (since my oldest was 8mo and I have had another since) and I never missed it. A muslin or jersey blanket will do fine.

        I'm out with the PU now: here's a compact changing pad from Amazon. I think I spent $6. It's soft and I have it folded in half because I've got the inner compartments fastened together. I have another one at home that came with a munchkin diaper caddy that folds even smaller. You cannot buy the pad separate as far as I can tell.

        PM me and I can send links from computer to both products when we're back from adventuring.

          Although....if you buy a different diaper bag and it comes with a changing pad, I would hang onto it incase you decide to sell or donate the bag.
