3. At least one muslin.
So versatile and essential for winding your baby unless you like the 'thrown up on' look ;) These can also be used as a blanket and if your baby has a cold.
4. Foldable changing mat.
This won’t take up much room in the bag but means you can pretty much change a nappy anywhere!
5. Nappies, wipes & nappy sacks
Sounds obvious but the amount of times I have left the house without them would have you questioning whether I am even a parent! I now try to restock as soon as I get home from a day out so the bag is ready to go the next morning and I don’t have to think about it.
6. Bepanthen Nappy Care Ointment
Nappy rash can cause lots of pain, so protection is key. I apply a baby skin cream, such as Bepanthen, at every nappy change to help protect against the causes of nappy rash!
7. A change of clothes - for those poop explosions!
8. A dummy or comforter if they have one - you never know when it might just help settle them!
These are really all the essentials you need for a newborn.
