Nappy bag, what to pack?

Nappy Bag Essentials

Nappy bags are an essential part of leaving the house with baby. A well packed nappy bag can save the day, but what do you pack apart from nappies? How many of each item do you pack? With backpack nappy bags you can almost take the entire house with you.

Nappieswipes and bum rash cream.

Quantity all depends on age of baby & how long you are leaving the house. I always liked to have a min of 6 nappies in my bag at all times. We also used MCN ( modern cloth nappies and would take at least 2 with an extra wet bag incase of poop explosions. You can also buy disposable bags to pop your dirty nappies in also. Take the entire wipe packet, wipes are a parents best friend. Don’t forget your change mat, and hand sanitiser . Our nappy bags do include a change mat, Bonus!

Clothes & swaddles

for baby, 2 changes of clothes for baby. A cute onesie and something warmer like a cardigan or long onesie and long pants is a great idea, pack to the season and where you live.

Bottles and formula

or expressed breastmilk. If you use formula, it’s best not to prepare it before you go. Instead, pack a formula dispenser. Pre measure into each section of the dispenser. There is some amazing formula dispensers out there, we always avoided taking the entire tin unless we couldn’t pack enough in our dispenser. Clean bottles with the required amount of warm water. Expressed breastmilk can be kept at room temperature (no warmer than 26 degrees) for around six hours. Most nappy bags have insulated bottle holders.

Teething toys or pram toys

Keep them entertained while out and about with some toys. Choose toys based on your outing and your baby’s age. A toddler going to a restaurant often requires a lot of entertaining distractions, while a four-month-old may be happy with one teether.

Mum and dads things, don’t forget about yourself. I never really carried a separate handbag, I always popped my phone, wallet, keys ect, into bubs baby bag, don’t forget your pads or tampons. We also always kept our hospital personal health record book (red book) in our bag too. Hot tip, keep it in a sealed pouch safe from spills.

First aid kits

are super handy and most of the time left out of a nappy bag. In a waterproof container or bag, pack bandaids, antibiotic cream, pain reliever (for you and your child).

It’s always a great idea to check everything before leaving the house and keep it organised for smooth baby outings.
