Nappy Bag Essentials: What You Need, What You Can Forget and What Will Carry It All
Figuring out your nappy bag essentials can be difficult for inexperienced parents. It’s difficult to know what you’ll actually need when you’re out and about with bub. If you’re feeling the physical strain of lugging the entire nursery around on your shoulder, you’re in luck! Consider this your cheat sheet to streamlining your nappy bag.
Nappy Bag Essentials: What Is Required?
When babies are little like yours, you need to make sure you have:
- The capacity to feed them (if you use formula you’ll need bottles, water and powder)
- Nursing pads if you’re breastfeeding
- Burping cloths and bibs
- Back-up clothing in case of accidents
- Nappies and wipes (and more wipes!)
- Something to amuse baby (think rattles and soft toys)
- Something to soothe baby (think teethers and dummies)
That’s a lot for one tiny baby! Our advice is to prepare your nappy bag well in advance and make sure you always have it fully stocked. This will save on preparation time when you are trying to get out of the house quickly and you can rest assured that you’ve always got everything you need on hand.
