    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

    ♥ me & my little boy ♥

    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
