Whether you are expecting and wondering what you’ll need, or your baby is here and looking for tips, you will need to keep your nappy bag packed and ready to go.
Did you know that young babies need their nappy changing up to 10 to 12 times a day and older babies around six to eight times a day?
It is inevitable that when you are out and about that your baby will need changing, it might even be several times (poop explosion pending, let’s not even talk about that).
We have pulled together what we think are the essentials to pop in to your nappy bag so you will be covered:
- A fold up changing mat
- 3 -4 nappychat eco-nappies
- Pack of 100% biodegradable* Mum & You baby wipes. Keep them in an easy to reach pocket for quick grabs
- Barrier cream
- Eco friendly nappy sacks
- Change of clothes: Babygrow and vest is easier for babies. Pop them in a zip sandwich bag to make them easier to find and keep clean. An extra plastic bag or nappy sack to put wet and dirty clothes is handy too
- A spare top for mamma if room (from leaky boobs to sicky babies, its hard to stay clean with little ones around!)
- Clean breast pads if breastfeeding
- Milk if bottle feeding
- Muslin cloths
- Clean dummies if using
- Antibac surface wipes – handy for cleaning cafe highchairs, changing tables and dropped toys
- Food or snacks if you are weaning
- Water bottles for you and toddlers
- Small books and portable toys like a teething ring or rattle
Oh and don’t forget your purse, keys and phone! 😊
Top tip: Restock your bag the night before so you are not rushing when you have to go out. It’s hard enough getting a baby ready let alone a bag as well!
*Wipes are compostable according to European Standards EN13432 and are certified by TÜV Austria as OK compost Home.
