What to pack in your baby bag (the early days)

So you’re already carrying round a baby, and probably a pram, and also that extra baby weight (ha!).. what else could you possibly need? A baby bag with a whole bunch of crap in it.

Here are my suggestions on what to pack into said bag.

For baby:

  1. Nappies
  2. Wipes
  3. A change mat
  4. Nappy bags
  5. Bottom cream
  6. A spare change of clothing
  7. A spare bib
  8. A burp cloth / towel
  9. A blanket (what type depends on the season)
  10. A toy
  11. Spare dummy (if you use one)
  12. If not breastfeeding, any feeding supplies you may need

Also, if baby has been sick of late OR has had her needles recently, i take:

  1. baby panadol / neurofen
  2. thermometer
  3. Any other medicine you may need (e.g. nose drops)

For you:

  1. Phone
  2. Wallet
  3. Drink bottle
  4. Spare breast pads
  5. Possibly a spare t’shirt

I hope you chose a big bag! 🙂
