    Default Nappy bags!

    It's been 5 years since DS was born and when I pulled out my nappy bag from storage it was faded and shabby, so would really like a new one for bub #2.

    I'm not into spending heaps (would rather spend good $ on a handbag I can use for years to come!), I don't plan on having more children.

    I do remember thinking I should have just bought a large handbag rather than a specific nappy bag - too many compartments, too big & bulky etc.

    But now I am uncertain just how big the bag should be, it's been so long since I've had a young bub I just can't remember how much stuff I need to be able to fit in there! Tempted to get a nice new nappy bag but know I'll probably get annoyed at the size of it...

    Thoughts? For those of you that opted for a non-nappy bag, how big is your bag and do you find it efficient? What's typically in your nappy/baby bag?

    I use a calico library bag most of the time and just try to keep restocking it. You could go with a largish handbag...

    I take a terry flat nappy as my change mat (easy to wash), reusable wipes and a couple spare cloth nappies and a wet bag.

    But that's for a nearly six month old fully breastfed baby so he's a bit more predictable than a newborn.

    I used a bobbleart kids backpack. Backpacks are great as being on your back they free up your hands

    Default Nappy bags!

    I am not a fan of the big nappy bags.
    I am generally out in the car so I have a large fake leather backpack (with a flap cover and drawstring so it expands to hold heaps) and this stays in my car with the bulk of her stuff (spare clothes, spew cloths, muslin wrap). This can go in the basket under the pram or I can carry it on my back if needed. I actually got the backpack as I was carrying my baby in a carrier instead of using the pram so it was easier for me to use the backpack and have hands free. I got it at strandbags for about $35.
    I have a nappy wallet which fits in the backpack too and this is one of my best purchases. It folds out to be a changemat and holds a small pack of wipes and about 4-5 nappies.
    Most of the time I will just pop the nappy wallet in my handbag with a spare onesie in the zip up section of my bag for emergencies. I keep tissues in my bag at all times and I use Velcro toy straps to attach toys to the pram so I don't have to have them in my bag 😀 I'm breastfeeding so don't have to worry about bottle storage or anything. I have a medium size tote bag with a zip section in the middle. It's big enough to chuck a few baby things in if needed but not too big to carry in shops/out to lunch.

    I ended up with a big w $60 job and have found it perfect.

    It's got a few compartments and I carry a smaller bag of Medicals (sunscreen, pawpaw, hand sanitizer, tissues etc) a small bag of spare clothes for both kids 5 &1) and wipes, nappies are in compartments as are hats and bibs on the other side of the bag. I've got my purse and it's my "when with kids" hand bag.

    I love it. So much better than the Ryco bag I had with the eldest.

    I have a sports bag in the boot of my car with all the frills but only have a nappy wallet (2-4 nappies, wipes, Terry flat to change on) plus a onesie and a muslin in my normal handbag. My handbag also has space for water bottles for my older kids and snacks.

    Was that the actual Colette nappy bag or just one of the large handbags? I was looking at those today.
