    Default Babywearers- how do you wear baby and carry a nappy bag?

    My DD is 12wks and 4.2kg. I wear her in a stretchy wrap around the house and thought I'd try a trip to the shops. Just $2 shop & newsagent so I wasn't using a trolley. I found it really awkward carrying my bag, and getting stuff in & out of it. It's a tote style bag with a long strap.

    Is this something that gets easier with practice, or are there better ways of doing it?

    Thanks

    I either keep everything in the car & only take the necessaties in the front pocket of ergo (bank card, car keys, phone) or i take a small bag with a nappy, wipes etc.

    Ill only take a full nappy bag if i know ill have a trolley, pram to put it in or if im not walking about anywhere .

    A backpack or bumbag style can work much easier too

    I only have a 6 week old but we've settled into baby on the front with backpack on the back. The only time it's a problem is trying to get in and out of tiny public toilet cubicles and trying to turn around in narrow shop aisles!

    Also - SimpsonDesert! I remember reading your TTC journal aaages ago, congratulations on your daughter!

    A sling ring bag or another style with really long strap. Don't have to big enough to keep the essentials in and keep extra nappies etc in the car

    Thanks for all your helpful advice, much appreciated. Leaving the bulky bag in the car and taking a few essentials in a smaller bag makes so much sense

    Ergo on the front and backpack on the back. I look like some weird, double sided turtle, but it works! lol

    Slightly off topic but this thread reminded me of something that popped up for me the other day. I really needed to pee while I was out shopping with 9 week old DD in a stretchy wrap... so, is it usual to pee whilst wearing a baby? What if I need to poo?
