Packing a Changing Bag

Leaving the house with your baby, even for a short trip, can be pretty overwhelming. It feels like you have to take everything with you except the kitchen sink! Keeping a changing bag packed will save you time whenever you are preparing to go out.

A top tip is to have two nappy change bags. A small one with a few basic items for quick trips, and a larger one with more stuff for longer trips out. You might want to also keep a bag in the boot of the car.

A changing bag with lots of pockets will keep things organised and help you find them. What you need to put in the bag depends on your child's age, where you are going and how long you are likely to be.
