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?

Babywearers- how do you wear baby and carry a nappy bag?
03-08-2014 11:29 #2
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've got a backpack style nappy bag.

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
deku Thank you . I still can't believe my DD is here. So incredibly lucky. Congrats on your baby too!

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