what do you carry in your bag?and who doesn't even take one(30 Posts)
right, after this started on other thread i'm making a seperate on.
what do you put in your changing bag? and would you ever go without. as i have a friend who never takes anything. no nappies/wipes/juice/
nothing at all. just her stuff. and it drives me crazy. coz she either borrows mine or has to go and get somewhen we're out.
i used to take
change of clothes x 2 (ds &dd)
jar of baby food.
disposible changing mats
cut down to smaller bag
handy pack of wipes
1 nappy sack
i pair unisex trouers,1x pants1x t-shirt
wipe clean bib
small change purse
have a bag with all other stuff for emergencies in my car.
oh and have a variety of juice/bottles/milk/goddies crips/crackers/raisins
depending on how long i'll be out and what time of day.
nappy if i remember
loads of old bills i don't need to be carrying around
spare spoon and fork, (child sized)
thinks thats more or less it
depends how old kid is.
Until ds was potty trained I stuck a spare nappy and a packet of wipes in my bag. If we were going to be ages I put 2 nappies in. Early days of training I took a spare pair of trousers/pants and will stick those in car if going on long journey.
at the moment just nappies/wipes as one of mums dogs ate my changing bag...
spare clothes (dep. on where we go)
some extra layers dep. on weather
bicki pegs (not at mo., not teething yet but in for when he does)
probably more but cannot think, I hate not having something I need. The weaher changes so much that you can go out in a woooly hat and end up needing a sunhat & suncream!
i have in DD bag,
3 nappies,(or more depending on where we're going)
sick rags, (like muslin but from matalan)
spare change of clothes, inc socks & booties,
metanium cream or sudocream,
winter hat or summer hat.
carrier bag for dirty clothes jut in case,
boobie pads for me in case i leak.
and for me,
Lip balm, tissues, purse, house keys, mobile, sunnies (if suns out) pen, umm, think that's it.
but if we're just off down the road to town quickly then all i take is one nappy and wipes and nappy sack.just in casers.
DS is 2 yrs old, I stick a nappy and some wipes in my handbag along with all my usual crap. I always make sure I have a snack and a drink for him in case none available when we're out.
I don't take spare clothes now as haven't needed them since he stopped being a pukey baby (and isn't potty training yet). If out for longer, then 2 nappies.
In the early days took a heavy duty bag with everything mentioned - and more. Got sick of lugging the thing around so pared down to a small handbag with:
2 folded up plastic bags for shopping
1 disposable nappy (we use cloth at home)
travel pack of wipes
small muslin - for bib/face-wiping etc
Just recently ditched the pouch sling, which folded up really small (but DD is now too heavy for)
Sippy cup, because she happily drinks out of open cups, or with a straw from a bottle
All of the rest of it was so rarely used (spare clothes etc.) there really was no point in hoiking it all about.
DD2 (10 weeks)
carrier for dirty nappies (resuables),
spare vest, baby grow,cardigan
a toy of some description
snack (friut or crisps),
whatever else she cant live without that day
And when DH comes along he tries to squeeze in his keys and wallet too!
GOSH!! need a bigger bag!
I don't carry all that crap!
I sling a couple of nappies, a packet of wipes ad a drink under the pushchair - if I am going to be out long enough to need it.
In my pockets are my purse, phone and key.
There is not NEED for all that stuff!
i beg to differ.. smug
dd1 stuff necessary -dd2 stuff - only end up spending lots on snack if you dont take anything
I have a largeish makeup / washbag with one disposable changing mat 2 nappies, travel pack of wipes and thats slung under pushchair. In my pockets have keys money debitcard and mobile.
I have 3 changing bags but dont use them
DD's are 1 (exactly!) and 2.6 I take
couple boxes raisins
for long day trips I take above plus
Bottle water for sharing between dd's
travel pack wipes
DD1 has her own bag if she insists with her teddy/drink/book whatever and DD2 carries her stuffed toy.
I do have a bag in the car with nappies, large pack of wipes, nappy sacks, full change of clothes for both including socks and jumpers so as I am either within walking distance of the house or with the car I don't need to haul 10 tons of crap around!
the bag in the car thing i find very handy. as i can quite often plan to be only out for a short trip and and end up out all day. handy to be able to restock nappy supplies from it.
At the moment I've got a large changing bag containing:
change of clothes (vest + sleepsuit)
my stuff: keys, phone, wallet, diary, lipbalm, iPod
usually some random things accumulated over the course of the day, e.g. DP's birthday present is currently hiding in there
I don't drive and don't always know how long I'll be out for, plus DS is extremely adept at pooing through his clothes, so all that stuff is necessary for me. I don't mind though as have always carried loads of stuff around due to low boredom threshold.
my dd is two, ds six months
spare pants for dd
sun hat for ds (sunshade on p and t rubbish and i kept being caught out by the sun)
some nappies for ds (i grab a handful and top up when run out)
jumpers if weather changeable
things i need but forget:
bib for ds
I have a big yummy mummy messenger bag in preperation for dd4's arrival in a fortnight which is at the moment just used for dd3 who is a year old.
3 Pocket nappies
1 plastic tub of washable wipes
spare car keys incase dp loses his
purse (empty )
1 baby bottle of water
ha ha littleducks, i have a bib in my change bag but always forget to use it.
At the moment I have DD1 (4 years) who doesn't carry her own crap stuff so for her I have
a bottle of water,
spare knickers (she doesn't have accidents anymore but sometimes gets them wet in the process of using the toilet)
and sometimes hat & gloves if she decides she doesn't need them but I think she may later in the day
DD2 (2 years) still not PT'd so
two or three nappies depending on how long we are out,
couple of wipes just thrown in dry,
sippy cup and snacks
and two small colouring books with set of crayons
sanitising hand gel & hand cream,
Deodorant stick & sample perfume as I sometimes forget before I leave the house and hate going without,
and sanitary pad (just in case)
and have dc3 due in 4 weeks so will be needing:
an extra few nappies
change of clothes
I'll probably need a suitcase for that lot! luckily I have a big old pram for dc3 so can hide a few items in the foot part of that while dc3 is tiny and leave a bag of bits in the car.
For dd1 and dd2 (2.6 and 16 months)
small box of snacks
drink of water for each
