A nappy bag should hold much more than just spare nappies. But what? Here's a list.

A new mum's nappy bag checklist 

Nappy bag checklist

Don't leave home without:

  1. The nappy bag: Of course
  2. Hat and sunscreen: So sun protection is always on hand
  3. Nappy change mat: Not all public change tables are pleasant, let alone clean. A change mat also makes it easier for you to change baby on other locations, such as grass or a bench
  4. Travel-size nappy cream: Nappy rashes are never far away 
  5. Travel-size moisturiser: For dry spots on baby but also for your hands
  6. Travel-size hand sanitiser: You may not always have the luxury of having a tap nearby
  7. Spare nappies: How many will depend on how long you're planning to be out (then add one more to the final count)
  8. Plastic bags (for used disposables) or wet bags (for used cloth nappies)
  9. Wet wipes: Sample packs are a great size
  10. Spare clothes for the parent: A poo-nami can happen at anytime!
  11. Spare clothes for the baby: Same reason as #10
