Do I actually need a Nappy Bag?

The short answer is YES! This is obviously my own opinion, however from experience, a good Nappy Bag is essential and especially since you’ll likely use it for 3 to 5 years, so makes a great investment.

Nappy Bags are purpose built for Baby and You, they tend to have more room and are easier to organise. Most Nappy Bags will have separate compartments for bottles, wipes, laptops, phone, keys. Other Nappy Bags will come with stroller straps so you can easily attach them to your pram (most regular bags don’t have these features). Also, some bags offer lots more Nappy bag accessories too, such as a change mat, bottle holders, shoulder straps or clips.

What Style Nappy Bag is Best?

Your nappy bag will be your best friend for a couple of years, so choose a style that suits your lifestyle. If you like your space, consider a tote. If you like your hands free, consider a larger backpack. Or if you’re a minimalist, a smaller lightweight backpack should do the job. You’ll need to decide if a leather nappy bag will work for you or is nylon baby bag or canvas baby bag better suited? There are so many choices it can be hard to decide.  

What Makes a Good Nappy Bag?

Most important and top of my list of Nappy Bag ‘must haves’ is storage space. You’ll need a bag big enough to carry all the bits and bobs bub needs. Beyond just nappies, think change mat, change of clothes, wipes, bottles, snacks, toys and if you have a toddler or even twins you can double this list!

Most Nappy Bags will come with built-in pockets, dividers and even waterproof sections making organisation easier. Waterproof Nappy Bags are also an awesome feature for all those inevitable spills, making it much easier to clean up!

Stroller straps are also great to have so you can have you hands-free and you’ll easily be able to access all the baby bag essentials while the bag is hanging on the pram. The list goes on-and-on, so I’ve rounded up The Top 5 Best Selling Nappy Bags below:
