Finding the Right Nappy Bag
Finding the right nappy bag for your needs can significantly reduce the stress you may experience when on an outing with your baby. Diaper changes away from home are not always a piece of cake and a great bag will make things simpler by assuring that you have everything you need and keeping it well organised for easy access.
Finding the right nappy bag
when looking the perfect nappy bag, your first consideration is storage. This is not just the capacity to carry all you need but also the organisation of it as well. If you are a first-time mom, you may be surprised at the amount of stuff you are going to be carrying around to support both babies and you need.
This is what you will find in a typical nappy bag:
- Wet wipes
- bum cream
- bags for dirty diapers
- changing nappy pad
- change of clothes
- nursing cover
- bottle(s) or sippy cup(s)
- Diaper clothes
- water bottle
- hand sanitizer
- cell phone
- makeup and sunscreen
- reading material
A good nappy bag will be able to fit all or at least most these things in a way that makes them easily accessible for you. We found that nappy bags with exterior storage like insulated pockets for bottles and snacks as well as additional compartments for cell phone, changing pad, diapers, and wipes to be particularly functional.
Always Keep in mind that your mileage may vary when it comes to storage needs. For example, you will need a larger bag if you have more than one in diapers, or for overnight and multi-day trips.
Ease of Use
There will be times when you will have your baby up on a public changing table for a nappy change only to realise in the middle of it that you have forgotten to grab, the bum cream. These items must be easy to get out from the nappy bag. You also want to have a nappy bag that has a lightly coloured interior and opens widely so that you can see and access the contents inside easily. Nappy bags that have deep interiors with narrow openings and dark lining to be like trying to find something in a black hole.
Closures also play into ease of use. Compartments and pockets can have several types of closures, typically zippered, magnetic, or velcro. Zippered closures are nice. It is also very important that it has an internal compartment that zips closed. When a compartment or pocket is open you will lose items when the bag tips over or turns upside down. Magnetic closures tend to not close or stay closed when fully loaded.
Consider Your Needs Too
Also, when considering ease of use, we recommend picking a bag that has space for personal items. There is no need to carry a handbag and a nappy bag but with a good nappy bag, it won’t be necessary.
Quality & Cost
Quality in a nappy bag is more important that you may think. After all, this bag needs to get you through the long haul in sometimes not so pretty of situations. This is an investment in a tool you’ll be using for years. A broken handle, strap, or zipper could cause a very bad day if you are far from home with a baby.
