As a mother of an 8 month old (yes she's 8 months already!) I have a lot to carry around with me, the bag I am currently using is the 'Navy stripe' Satchel bag from Babymel which I purchased from John Lewis. It's lightweight, slouchy and perfect for Summer.
It has two main compartments, one for baby and one for me. It also has a small insulated side pocket for placing a bottle or snacks. It has velcro straps that attaches to your stroller all for only £40.
Under the flap is the mummy pocket...
It houses my phone, keys, purse, business card holder (holds all of my cards, coupons etc), diary, headphones in leather pouch, glasses, oyster card holder, hand gel, hand cream, pen and a makeup bag.
Here's what's inside my makeup bag at the moment.
Revlon 'Sugar frosting' & 'Strawberry shortcake' lip butters, Mac 'Hue' and 'Salute' lipsticks, Mac 'Ember Glow' lip glass, YSL touche eclat, Mac 'Dervish' lipliner, Rimmel 'Hazel' eyebrow pencil, Mac Factor black eye liner, mirror, nail files and hair clip. (Make up bag from H&M)
Here's what's inside the zip compartment which is for baby. It has 2 elasticated pockets and a divider.
Changing mat, Nappies, nappy bags, cream, baby wipes, nose wipes, antibacterial wipes, change of clothes + cardigan & socks, 3 bibs, muslin, dummy, toys and a first aid kit which includes essentials like baby sun cream, medicine, cotton buds, lotion etc.
I love this wooden pram chain by Heimess, it's SO cute and clips on either end of the hood of my bugaboo. It entertains Esra with it's jingling bells when she tugs at it and she also uses it for teething. I got mine for £18.50 from a baby boutique.
I will also place a blanket in the bag if it's chilly outside, and add more or less clothing depending on my trip. If I'm going to be out all day I use the insulated Skip Hop (Bee) 'Zoo lunchie' bag for Esra's food which clips easily onto the stroller and is so convenient. I have 2 other baby bags which I love, one is the Skip Hop Studio in Plum burst and the other is the duo double in black which is VERY large as it's for twins haha, but perfect for travelling.
What's inside your bag? And, do you have any tips for packing with a little one?
