Nappy Bags Demystified

Nappy Bags Demystified

  • nappy bag

One of the essentials on a new mum’s shopping list is a nappy bag. Nappy bags are literally a bag that you can put all your baby’s necessities in when you go out and about. Some mums and dads choose to simple use a rucksack, whereas many like to have a dedicated nappy bag that they buy ready for when their baby arrives.

What kinds of things do mums and dads traditionally put in a nappy bag?

Nappy bags can be used to put nappies (of course) in as well as a whole host of things you need for your baby such as:

  • A change of clothes
  • Bottles (if you need them with expressed milk or formula) – some nappy bags come with an insulated pocket
  • Change mat – some nappy bags do come with a portable change mat
  • Dummies if you are using one
  • Toys and activities as your baby gets older and gets bored easily
  • Wipes
  • Muslin cloth
  • Bibs
  • Water free hand wipe for when you are in places where there are no taps
  • Cutlery
  • Snacks
  • Emergency medical information

How much should I spend on a nappy bag?

There are lots of places to buy nappy bags, and you can pay hundreds of dollars for them if you really want to, but if your budget doesn’t stretch to that, many shops such as Target and Big W also sell them at very affordable prices. It comes down to whether you want a practical or a fashionable looking bag essentially.

Things to look out for when choosing your nappy bag

  • Plenty of pockets and useful compartments
  • Insulated bottle pocket
  • Washable clear plastic compartment/removable bag – can be good for those unforeseen ‘accidents’
  • As washable fabric as possible
  • Change mat
  • Miscellaneous extras such as a dummy holder, wipes pocket
