The brainchild of Melissa Walsh, the MELOBABY all-in-one nappy wallet + changing mat was borne out of frustration with carrying unnecessarily cumbersome nappy bags with separate, vinyl changing mats... fiddly, time-consuming, impractical and expensive products that made unattractive accessories.
As a busy mum of two who, with her partner, runs OFP Film and Television - making documentaries and series for global broadcasters including BBC World. Melissa needed a product that could fit into her handbag, carry all the essentials and be functional enough to use on day-to-day errands and on frequent trips to Europe and Asia accompanied by her two young daughters.
"I travel a lot and searched all over Australia, Europe and North America to find what I needed, but it didn't exist." says MELOBABY founder, Melissa Walsh. "We've spent four years sourcing the best materials, testing durability and practicality and designing something that mothers want to show off and fathers feel confident carrying. Mother and baby accessories tend to be bulky and unfashionable, focussing on the baby and forgetting the mother. The MELOBABY all-in-one nappy wallet + changing mat is different, sleek and sophisticated, with the aim of empowering parents with attractive and functional solutions".
