We all know the usual stuff found in nappy bags for bub:
Nappies – wipes – spare cloths – change mat – sunscreen – toys – food – etc.
What do you put in your bag for you? What are your day to day needs?
So I emptied my bag out. These are the contents of my nappy bag, that are for this mama.
Let’s start with the BAG itself. I choose a bag that suits our lifestyle. There are so many bags out there to choose from. I think when it comes to choosing a nappy bag you need to think about where are you going, does it match your style, can it fit everything? The questions go on. This bag is the ‘Wild‘ print from Bondi Beach Baby. It is huge. It doesn’t have many pockets (5 in total) but I personally hate rummaging through pockets trying to find stuff. We have clear little zippy purses that I sort all our stuff out in. As we breastfed I didn’t have a need for an insulated bottle pouch. We live near the beach so I needed something that would keep the water and the sand out. The leather is vegan and the print is just stunning. This was an easy purchase for us.
I also always carry a WRAP. This can be used for Millie but I use it to sit on, or even that little bit of extra sun protection, when draped over my shoulders. This one is also a Bondi Beach Baby in the ‘Lemonade‘ print. It’s 100% organic cotton and is perfect for our many beach trips.
Wildeblend ESSENTIAL OILS. These two I have on hand at all times. For those stressful days and any bumps bruises or bites. ‘Calm Mama‘ has been a lifesaver for me during the last few weeks of teething. I roll a simple figure 8 on my wrist and inhale. ‘Skin Relief‘ is great for so many things, Eczema, Nappy rash. But for me personally, I use it for those little bug bits. They have a great range of oils but these are my must have ready to go at all times.
My next big one is my Ever Eco Cotton Net Tot BAG. We are a household that is always trying to be more sustainable and eco-friendly. With the plastic bag ban in Queensland, this bad has saved me on those many impromptu shopping trips to grab one or two things. They have a great range of sustainable living products.
For my SKINCARE, I always have my Garnier ‘Tinted BB Cream’ (with sunscreen) and a lip balm. They are great for those days you have to rush out of the house (because you’re running late again) and you just need to feel a little bit human. I also have a deodorant in my bag cos I have forgotten to put it on sometimes during that mad morning dash.
I also ALWAYS have a SNACK for myself. The amount of times I forget to eat is unbelievable.
For my own sanity, I have added Millie’s Logan & Alice ‘TeePee Teether‘. This teething baby will probably be the death of me.
Then there are the usuals, Sunglasses, wallet, camera, phone and, keys.
This suits our lifestyle. I would love to hear what you put in your bag for you. So leave me a comment. If you think I could use something else pop it in the comments.
We love hearing your feedback.
