I love any type of What’s In My Bag posts and have done a couple in the past. I find it really interesting what other people keep in their bags and changing bags are no exception. I knew that nappies and wipes would definitely be in there but who knew just how much things you need to carry around with you! No wonder changing bags are so big. I know that as Noah gets older the contents of what I will be carrying around will no doubt change but this is what’s in my changing bag for Summer.
I currently have two changing bags, a black Silver Cross one that matches our buggy and the one above which is a Storksak Tote Changing Bag. The Storksak Tote is a huge nylon bag in bright pink/orange colours and comes with a foldable changing mat. I wanted a bag that didn’t look like a changing bag but was practical too. I also wanted one that was big enough to take the 376987 things that you need to take with you when you go out with your baby.
The bag is very roomy inside with a couple of deep pockets as well as a velcroed slip pocket to hold all the essential items and keep them organised. It also has a side compartment to keep your bottle insulated as well as keeping it upright to avoid leaks and spills. I don’t think it looks like a changing bag so you could use it as an everyday bag instead of taking a handbag along too.
Now that Noah is a bit older he needs a few things to occupy him while we are out and about. He is happy cuddling into a muslin cloth that he uses as a comforter. I have found Aden and Anais ones really good for that as they are so soft and cute as well. They are a bit on the pricier side compared to the cheaper ones but you can definitely feel the difference. We also take out his Skip Hop Roll Around Hedgehog called Henry as he likes to grab that and put it into his mouth as well as Ben, his cuddly bunny toy his new favourite toy.
I hope that you found this post useful if you are a new mum and not sure what you need to take out with you. If you already have a changing bag what’s in yours?
