iStock_000002803161Small (Custom)I’m 34 weeks pregnant with first baby and I’m wondering what were some things you found really handy or couldn’t live without in your nappy bag?

  • Disposable change mats excellent means u can change them anywhere n they are so small so don’t take up a lot of room like the other change mats do. A spare dummy but always have a dummy chain excellent when out n about u no itl never drop ob the floor. And nappy bags! Tash

  • I have just been packing mine with some comfy undies, maternity pads, breast pads, maternity bras, yoga pants and a couple of loose comfy tops. Baby bag has clothes, nappies, a blanket, wipes. Thats just general, anything else would be personal preference technology bits, etc. Meaghan
  • I’m a brand new mum with a 2 week old – pack a spare change of clothes. I am forever forgetting to and it’s the one thing I need when I’m out (for vomits, or if the weather changes etc)! Angela
  • pawpaw ointment is the absolute essential to have, nappy rash, capped skin/lips, sores never leave home without it…. always spare clothes/nappies and wipes, if you are going to use a dummy then a spare is always handy you never know when they are going to drop it- personally I won’t be using a dummy for mine, once they start with one it is hard to take them away-spare bottles of boiled water even if breast feeding, water for you too, cornflour in a powder dispenser- it’s a lot better than talc -and cheaper too. Betty
  • Wipes, nappy rash cream, spare clothes, nappy’s, burp cloths/bibs/one cloth nappy (for any milk brought up, although cloth nappy usually left on shoulder I also had a spare in the bag) few dummies, spare blanket. Emma

    Smaller section of baby bag: Nappies, baby wipes, nappy cream, nappy disposable bags (for dirty nappies), disposable change mats, spare nipple shield (I breastfeed with a nipple shield kept in a sandwich bag for outings) and of course dummy/pacifier (at least two spares).
    Larger section of bag: At least two spare jumpsuits & two spare singlets, at least three bibs, baby beanie/hat (depending on weather) baby jacket/vest & baby socks (in colder weather), a muslin wrap (perfect for breastfeeding to cover, or so milk doesn’t drip on their jumpsuit & to wipe away any vomit spills), face cloth, thin cotton blanket (that I lay on people’s lounges when I visit friends/family), and a thicker blanker (to cover baby).
    In cool section of bag: Water in bottle and/or expressed milk in bottle and home-made baby food on the longer trips (when baby 6+months)
