When you have a newborn, it can seem almost impossible to leave the home. How else will you be able to carry your bub as well as their nappies, powders, bibs, wipes and extra pair of socks? Sometimes it can feel like you're taking everything but the kitchen sink… and where are you going to put it all?
You need a nappy bag, but not just any bag will do. The ubiquitous nappy bag has recently had a huge makeover, and it no longer has to be the daggy, brightly coloured bag that our mums used to haul around everywhere. Now, fashion-forward new mothers all over Australia can breathe a sigh of relief and rejoice with the Mimco baby bag.
What do you put in a baby bag?
A well-stocked baby bag can really save the day. Prepare for the worst but expect the best when you fill your Mimco nappy bag with the essentials: diapers, nappy covers, wipes, hand sanitiser, bags to store soiled diapers and blankets, snacks (for older babies), extra clothes, a dummy, a blanket, and a sippy cup.
Because Mimco baby bags are made sturdy and spacious, you may also have room for tissues, diaper rash cream, toys, and a first-aid kit. If you're not going to carry a separate purse to put your belongings in, you'll need to save some space for your wallet, mobile phone, keys, and a new top in case of spills.
What to look for in a baby bag
First of all, your baby bag should have waterproof lining, for when spills will inevitably occur. If possible, find a baby bag with multiple compartments so it will be easier to find what you are looking for. Tubular carry handles and an adjustable shoulder strap will also make carrying it around easier and more comfortable for you. A nappy bag is also an investment, so when baby grows up, you can reuse the bag for the gym or travel!
