  • OMG - just thought, I don't take any spare clothes! If she were to sploge through her nappy I would be screwed!!! xox

    Oh, and i never take their red books out with me unless i'm going to doc's or get them weighed. What if it got lost?
  • I don't really carry that much out with me, i just stuff it all in whatever handbag i'm using that day. I always think maybe i should have more and whether i should be carrying the red book but only take it to appointments.

  • I dont really take that much with me as we've only got a small bag - am looking for a new one for the moda pram that isnt too low hanging or too high... its a nightmare (unless i want to spend ??50+ which i dont :lol: )

    but for Ollie at the moment I take -
    3-4 nappies,
    bag of wipes,
    nappy bags
    vest, trousers, socks, t shirt
    sudocrem (sample pot thingy)
    large jar savoury
    small jar pud

    and thats it.
    Could possibly take the spares clothes out now as he rarely does anything that bad, but i like having them there just in case....

    Course once Missy gets here it'll all change and I'm sure I'll be taking three times as much with me everywhere image
  • I'm quite minimalist but then I'm not bottle feeding or weaning. We use the little black bag which clips onto the Quinny chassis.

    - muslin
    - vest & babygro
    - nappies
    - wipes
    - mini pot of cream
    - nappy bags (Tesco value sandwich bags, actually :lol: )
  • PTB - that's the bag we have, it's called a Buzz Box isn't it. It's not that big so a bit of a struggle to get stuff in. It was easier when I full-time breastfed! xox
  • When I was breastfeeding and Summer wasn't on solids I would just take a nappy, wipes and a spare bib in my handbag, how it all changes as they get bigger!!xx
