You can never be too prepared as a mum. Especially if you have a spewy baby like I did.
Leaving the house, I always needed to make sure that I had lots of extra clothes. Not only for Tanner, but for me too.
Here's what's in my Nappy Backpack;
- Changing stations are a great way to keep everything all in one place ready for action. They have an inbuilt mat, special sections for nappies (I usually have at least 3) and baby wipes and extra pockets to store hand sanitiser, nappy cream, plastic bags etc.
- A change of clothes, just because you never know.
- Bottle/ Drink bottle depending on their age
- Snacks; I always ensure that I never leave the house without snacks, as now one year on that can make or break a shopping trip. I like to store them in the front pocket of my nappy bag so they are nice and easy to get. Don’t forget snacks for you, as we all know how easy it is to forget to eat yourself
- Burp cloth or small towel (I didn’t leave the house without at least two)
- Keys- I use a carabiner to attach my keys to my bag so I am not digging to find them when I have my hands full. This was one of the best things that I have done.
- Lip balm
- Silicone necklace if I’m not wearing it
- Bonjela is always stored in the top easy access pocket of my nappy bag. So, I know exactly where it is
- Toys that can dangle off your bag so they don’t take up too much room and are easy to grab off when you are changing bub
- Dummy (if needed)
- Teething ring/ teething toy
Everyone goes through trial and error when sorting out their nappy bag, but you will eventually find what works and stick with it. It is always an exciting time when getting any new bag and yes, I used having a baby as an excuse to get a new bag, as I’m sure all of us do.
Thanks for reading, i hope you love your nappy bag as much as I love mine 😊

My name is Tiff Droge and i am a new mum to my beautiful little Tanner Jae. I have only been writing blog posts for a short time, so i hope my grammar isn't too bad ;).
I started this blog to be able to provide advice to new and expecting mums which i never received or which i received in parts from different people. I know that i found it hard when i was pregnant to know which pieces of advice to listen to and which not to. All i hope is that i can provide you with a little piece of helpful advice.
I am a Health and Physical Education teacher living in Melbourne, currently lucky enough to be on maternity leave with my beautiful Tanner.
