Hi all, just wondering what you carry in your nappy bags. My bag strap has broken twice now so I'm wondering if I'm just overly prepared and stuffing it to fill of stuff.

Nappies , wipes, bib, nappy cream and when they're infants I carry a spare singlet and set of clothes. It would end up being a bit bulky purely from the nappies which took up a lot of space. I've got a few, but one I have had (an Oi Oi Oi messenger) since my first daughter was born 5 years ago and is still very sturdy and looks paractially new despite having had a lot of use.
When the kids got a bit older, I would skip the nappy bag and use a material nappy wrap thing my lovely friend made me. It was like the shape of a cross which doubled as a nappy holder and change mat, much lighter and easier to carry with you, but obviously limited with what you can put in it, hence why I use it when they're not infants.

I know I carry too much but I can't help it. DD is 5.5mo:
Nappies (about 6)
Spare singlet and basic clothes (like a wondersuit in winter, short sleeve legless onesie in summer)
Hat or beanie
Wrap of some sort
Bottle & formula container with one more measure of formula than I think I'll need (in case I get stuck somewhere unexpectedly and DD needs a feed. Prescription formula so can't just grab it at the shops)
Blue Book (because she was so unwell and we were constantly at the clinic, doctors, hospital etc)
Wow, I do carry a lot!!

-first aid container (in a Tupperware oyster) with infacol, panadol, mossi wipes, ness, baby eyes, thermometer, bonjella
-nappy cream container (another Tupperware oyster ) with bepanthan, paw paw and anti bacterial gel, cotton tips (for application)
Snap lock bag for dirty clothes
Snap lock bag for 2 sets of clothes and bibs

Wow at how much people carry!
I just carry a few nappies, some wipes and a onesie, and they go in my handbag.

I think I carry alot around too. Not by choice though. Cloth nappies take up a bit of space. Ds2 is also a chucker so we have numerous bibs and cloths on hand. Then a few changes of clothes.
I have been caught out before so I don't mind being prepared. Plus my nappy bag sits under the pram so it doesn't worry me.
