Are you looking for a new nappy bag for yourself or a loved one? If the answer was yes, then you might have a little challenge on your hands trying to choose the best functional nappy bag. Baby nappy bags become a mother’s best friend, carrying everything baby-related for the day. Carrying a nappy bag is a necessity if you are a parent with an active lifestyle.
Nappy bags are a beautiful and considerate gift for expecting mums. Nappy bags used to be nursery cute and adorable, but with the handbag as the main accessory for most mums today, it gets a new look. It comes in different colours, designs, sizes and patterns.
Before you get attracted to a certain nappy bag, consider the workload the nappy bags must take in a few short years. Vinyl or faux leather nappy bags can be trendy and easy to clean. Check the fabric and make sure that it is easily spot-cleaned or can be wiped clean.
Consider the length of time you’ll be carrying the bag each day and whether you will need both hands free for other tasks as you’re carrying the nappy bag. Messenger bags and tote-style nappy bags are easy for short trips and are fashionable for mums. Backpack nappy bags are good for long distances or hands-free carrying.
Ideally, straps should be wide and non-slip for nappy bags. When buying a nappy bag, try to carry it around and check if the straps stay put and if it’s comfortable on your shoulders. Check the inner interior if it has enough compartments available for nappies, change of clothes, change mat etc. If you are bottle-feeding, look for a nappy bag that has insulated bottle pockets.
Baby wipes are a must have not only for cleaning bottoms, mess and faces. They should be stored inside a bag that is airtight to preserve its moisture. It is also convenient to have antibacterial gel after changing a dirty nappy. Extra clothes, nappies, and burp clothes for your baby should also come in handy.
Pain relievers for baby are also a must have inside the bag in anticipation of fever and other illnesses that could unexpectedly get. A baby blanket is also useful as it may be chilly or warm and baby toys that will amuse your baby while you’re out and about.
