What's In My Changing Bag?

Saturday, 10 May 2014

Recently I've seen lots of posts from other bloggers showing us what's in they're changing bags. I love a good nosey and getting ideas from other people as to what to add to mine, so thought I'd share what's in mine too!

I've had about 3 changing bags, but this one is by far my favourite. It's a Pink Lining Yummy Mummy Bag; it wasn't brand new as I wouldn't have been able to afford it, but it's perfect (I thought Jack would be happier as it's blue anyway haha), and I love it! It holds SO much stuff, although can get pretty heavy once filled with all Indiana's bottles on a day out.
So I have the obvious bits: nappies, wipes and nappy bags (although looking now I need to restock these haha). But I never realised quite how much I have in there! I have kept the changing mat and wet bag that came with the bag as they are super handy for changes on the go. I also have a spare vest and sleepsuit incase any of these changes are because of a poop explosion haha, they're also great for if we're out late and want to get her ready for bed. Changing wise I also have 3 (god knows why!) different bum creams: Sudocrem, Bepanthen and Metanium. Then I have antibac wipes to clean up after a bum change or being out and about.

I keep her red book in there all the time as it's pretty handy. I get her weighed every 2/3 weeks and I know I would forget it otherwise, and it's good in case of an emergency! I found a bus timetable tucked in with it, also handy I suppose haha. I've got plenty of my bits in there such as tissues, plasters, paracetamol, Vaseline, forhead headache stuff and usually my purse and phone too! I found SO many vouchers and little money off coupons stashed away with these bits haha. Probably all out of date, so I'll have to check those for any goodies!

For feeding I always take out at least one bottle with me filled with boiling water and put in the insulated pocket as well as her section tub of powder. Then of course a bib and muslin! She's teething pretty much constantly at the moment so I usually take out some teething toys, so these Nuby keys were in there from yesterday. She's also got a pretty bad cold too, poor thing, so we have her nasal spray with us just in case. The pink clips are from John Lewis and are to clip muslins onto the car seat to shade her from the sun (super handy now it's getting much brighter)! Finally I always have a spare dummy, as you never know when you'll need one!

I think it's pretty impressive how much you can it into a small bag haha, and I take this with me where ever I go, because you never know when you're going to need something from it!


What's in your changing bag?

  1. Wow! You make me seem very unprepared. I usually forget everything apart from nappies, wipes, keys and spare trousers! :D It's amazing how much you can fit - also I always forget Dexter's red book too!
