What's in your baby bag?

marle prinsloo

My baby bag weighs a ton! It's not as bad as it sounds. Carrying baby bags and pushing prams is my main form of exercise, so, I am OK with a large and heavy baby bag.

On a more serious note, I didn't know what to pack and what not to pack when I had my first baby. As a result I basically just packed every single thing that could fit into the bag.

Luckily I got better at it.

Here is a list of the things I always have in my baby bag:

  • 5 nappies
  • 1 pack of wipes
  • 1 small pack of tissues
  • bum cream
  • nappy bags 
  • changing mat (preferably the disposable ones that you can buy at shops like Dischem)
  • 2 spare outfits (incl. vests and socks)
  • 1 cardigan or jacket (to be prepared for unexpected weather changes)
  • 1 or 2 bibs
  • sun hat (or beanie in winter)
  • 1 thin blanket / swaddle blanket
  • spare dummy and dummy container
  • hand sanitizer
  • fever meds and teething gel (you just never know!)
  • sun screen (even in winter)
  • on the food and drink side I always have a water bottle, milk bottle (together with required formula / breast milk), and a healthy snack
  • 1 small toy / book

It's a long list, but I prefer to be prepared ... and I have a very big nappy bag :)

Let me know if there is any other essentials that I've left of the list.
