What’s in my changing bag?

Sometimes I feel like I’m the only toddler mum still hauling around such a massive bag! Is it just me? 

The Essentials:

  • Nappies/nappy bags
  • Changing mat
  • Wipes
  • Hand sanitiser (Apparently I need two)
  • Bum cream 
  • Change of clothes
  • Snacks & water. I always have raisins and some sort of biscuits in there.  I add other bits depending on what we’re up too. Today it’s a cheese and ham brioche as I don’t think we’ll be home for lunch. 

    Everthing else:

    • Books – Tiny loves her books and we walk a lot so I don’t want her to get bored.  I try to pick light weight books, and books with flaps as they keep her amused for longer.
    • String A Farm toy.  Tiny loves this and it keeps her amused if l want a longer coffee with friends. It’s also good for developing motor skills.
    • Bib
    • Muslin
    • Crayons & a notebook. These are always good for extra entertainment. I also found this amazing multi crayon in a National Trust shop which is useful for saving space.
    • Tissues
    • Sanitary pads… just in case. I used to carry around breast pads for ages after I stopped breast feeding… just in case someone needed them!
    • A comb 
    • A tiny plastic spoon – I’m not sure why. There are spoons everywhere. 
    • Mini sterliser tablets for my Milton dummy sterilser.
    • Fresh wipes hoarded from various restaurants. 
    • Clothes begs – for attaching a muslin to the pram if it’s too sunny or sealing opened snack bags
    • My little makeup bag – this used to live in my handbag for work but now I keep it in here in case I need emergency masacara! I also keep painkillers and plasters in there.
    • Three reusable shopping bags because shopping could happen at any time. 

    How does your bag compare? What have I left out?

    1. Nope. Not just you. I constant wonder why I bother lugging around such a giant bag when I rarely actually need anything from it. But the little voice in the back of my head always goes “but maybe…” so I haven’t gotten rid of it yet.
