How to choose your Nappy Bag?

By Natalie Gibbins, Incy-n Storksak and Babymel

Nappy bags are a great way of carrying your baby's essentials, such as nappies, wipes, bottles and dummies. There are lots of bags on the market, ranging from the very basic to the deluxe.

Before you buy here's what to look for:

· Your nappy bag should be spacious,
· Easy to carry,
· Hold a change of baby clothes, feeding essentials, as well as wipes, creams and nappies,
· Have wipe clean lining, a change mat and ideally an insulated bottle holder or compartment,
· An adjustable cross-body strap to make it easier to carry, and the ability to attach the bag to a stroller, and
· It should suit your style so you enjoy using it.

What kind of bag do I need?

As a ‘first time Mum’ you might think that bigger is better! But choosing a bag that's too big, will be bulky to carry and may hurt your back. Plus, keep in mind that a deep bag may hold a lot, but finding what you need, when you need it, may be tricky. As a busy new Mum you don't want to be rummaging about for that elusive, but essential item, in the deepest reaches of your bag. Finally, wipe-clean lining is a must, because as you can imagine things can get messy, so you need a bag that you can clean easily.

What style do I need?

It really is worth thinking about your lifestyle before choosing a nappy bag, do you need a small bag as you only do quick trips, or maybe a change mat is enough. Are you always on the run so that maybe a backpack is more functional for you. Or, are you replacing your everyday leather handbag, so that a Leather Nappy Bag would be ideal.
