As a mum, we all know how much stuff we need to pack when we go anywhere with a baby. From nappies to toys to snacks, it feels like we need to bring our entire house with us. That's why we've created the perfect Nappy Bag packing checklist for babies and toddlers that will help you stay organised and prepared no matter where you go.
When it comes to changing and hygiene, you'll want to make sure you have everything you need for those unexpected nappy changes. We recommend packing nappies, wipes, a change mat or nappy clutch, nappy rash cream or spray, spare clothes, and waste bags to dispose of dirty nappies and wipes. Don't forget to bring a small washcloth to place over your baby's private parts while changing them to catch any rogue pee once the nappy is off. And of course, hand sanitiser is a must-have for those moments when you don't have access to soap and water.
When it comes to feeding your baby or toddler, you'll want to bring along formula, bottles, sterilised water, a drinking cup or baby drink bottle with water, a bib, and some snacks or on-the-go weaning foods like pouches. Don't forget to pack a baby spoon and fork, too!
Other essentials to include in your nappy bag are toys, teethers, a burp cloth, a blanket or muslin cloth depending on the weather, a hat, and a dummy or pacifier if needed. You'll also want to pack a mini first aid/hygiene kit, sunscreen, insect repellent, bandaids, alcohol swabs, and a small pack of disinfectant wipes.
And let's not forget about mum! Make sure to pack your wallet, phone, keys, water bottle, sunglasses, and hat. If you're breastfeeding, don't forget to bring nipple balm and breast pads. And for those days when you don't have time to stop for a meal, pack some snacks like trail mix or lactation cookies. Oh, and don't forget a pen - it's always handy to have one!
At M&B. we understand the struggle of finding the perfect nappy bag. That's why we've created a backpack style bag that's both practical and stylish. Made with the highest quality vegan leather, our nappy bag boasts plenty of internal pockets and ample external pockets, so everything has its place and won't get lost. Plus, it comes with a shoulder strap for those moments when you need to get up and go.
With our Nappy Bag packing checklist and our practical yet stylish nappy bag, you'll be ready for anything that comes your way. So go ahead, plan that day out with your little one, and enjoy the adventure without worrying about forgetting something important.
