Organising Tips (14)     
Congratulations on becoming new parents, or parents again!

This is an incredible time in your lives where you get to know the beautiful little bundle you have nurtured and anticipated for 9 months. It’s also the time to say goodbye to your handbag or manbag and say hello to your nappy bag.


Your nappy bag will be with you for months, possibly years – it's the one accessory that can determine whether you have a successful outing or a complete nightmare.

By stocking your nappy bag with this essential list, you will never fear being caught out without the right supplies.

A practical, stylish and good quality nappy bag

3-4 nappies and nappy sacks

Small pack of baby wipes

Sample size nappy rash cream. Paw Paw ointment can double as lip balm and nappy rash cream too.

Baby Panadol and any drops or medication your baby is on, such as reflex drops

Any medication you are on including a dose of Panadol/Nurofen for the sudden onset of a headache

Breast pads (if needed)

2 light changes of baby clothes

A small purse/wallet with a note and a few gold coins in case of emergency (coffee).

Sample size sunscreen

Sample size insect spray

Sample baby formula and bottle with lid

Snacks for yourself, such as nuts, trail mix and/or muesli bar and water bottle

Muslin or small summer blanket for cover when breastfeeding or to lay baby on

Baby toy

Baby hat

Dummy/Soother if used

Hand sanitiser

On returning home, replenish whatever you have used during your day out. This ensures you are ready to next go out within a minutes notice.

Have a great day out with your new baby!

I've lost count of the number of long-haul trips my eldest (now aged 5) has made (about 5 maybe?), but along the way we've picked up a few tips and gems of advice about surviving long-haul trips with small children.
There is a taboo about the ‘M’ word. People try to avoid it, or they downplay it, or they just pretend they didn't hear it. The reality is that the ‘M’ word is a reality for 1 in 4 of us and we need to talk about it. We need to be allowed to talk about it. We need to be allowed to feel pain when someone talks about their healthy pregnancy when we lost ours.
