You might want to choose the most beautiful nappy bag that you can find but will it be right for you? There is more to choosing a nappy bag than just the colour – you have to make sure that it is going to meet the needs of you and your new baby.
The function of the nappy bag is a bag that will hold your everyday needs of your baby. If this is your first baby you might be surprised about how much a baby might need during the day. You will need to consider the space that you will need for the diaper changing equipment, from spare diapers to any creams, and a bag to put the soiled diaper in. Spills happen, and clean clothes might be needed too. Then there is the feeding to consider, and if you need to take any bottles and a spare soother too. All this before you have even thought about your needs, your keys and purse etc.
There is a lot that you need to have available and finding the right bag that will work for you is essential.
When you are looking for your nappy bag you will need to make sure that is comes with its own changing mat. This will ensure that you always have somewhere that you can change your baby that is clean and dry.
Bottle holders are a great item to have in any bag, it will mean that they are held securely and this will mean that they are less likely to leak. A leaking bottle can ruin the best intentions and it can be a disaster in a nappy bag which holds clean clothes and clean nappies.
The perfect bag
The perfect bag for you might not look the same as your best friends, but it doesn’t matter. It needs to meet your needs and not anyone else’s. It might not be the top of the range nappy bag, again it doesn’t matter, as long as it is in your budget that you set aside for a nappy bag, and it will meet yours and your babies’ needs then you will have picked the perfect bag. Making the right choice for you is vital because there is nothing worse than having a nappy bag that just doesn’t work and drives you insane when you just can’t find what you are looking for.
