Don't worry mama. We've got you covered!

When you are becoming a parent, your nerves may start to kick in because you want to make sure that you have all of your baby essentials. Whatever your tot throws your way – from hunger cries to excessive poopy diapers 😭 – a well-packed yet fashionable nursery bag (that easily clips onto a pushchair) can dissolve any chaotic situation. We’ve compiled a trusty diaper bag checklist ✓ of essential baby items to keep in your Joolz nursery bag 👜, or diaper bag as some may call it. That way, you and your baby are always happy.

Diapers

It seems obvious that diapers are must-haves to travel with, and they are. Thank goodness for the person who invented these fluffy, absorbable mommy savers 👏. You do not want to be in a situation with less than 5 diapers. Those situations can get worse, if you know what I mean 💩. The longer you’re on your great day adventure, the more diapers you will need in your nursery bag. Remember little babies mean more diapers. 

Baby wipes

Wipes are ideal for keeping your baby clean and fresh. The travel pack size comes in handy for messy and super soft bottoms. Chances are, you may save a few by buying the bigger pack then dropping a few… well a whole lot, in a  ziplock bag to keep them moist. I know what you may be thinking. “The storage bags are not cute, it looks cheap… oh my word how can you even suggest a thing like this😱” but there are other cute ziplock bags that you can drop in your nursery bag such as this leaf decorated or this smiley face pouch if, you are one for nature and bright colours. You may find most in the food section but as long as it does the job there’s no need to worry. Besides, you can store other things in it. Talk about being resourceful!

Changing pads

Things can get messy real quick if you do not have one of these life-savers. Without these, you may be asking “Where do I put my child?!” Do I hold my baby upside down? On my lap? With one hand? 😵. Calm down. Our Joolz nursery bag comes with a matching changing mat that is handy and easy to clean.

Diaper rash cream

Your baby is most likely to develop a diaper rash if they are not changed in time🕒. Babies use their diaper potties faster than the speed of light, and if you are not careful, it might strike you with an unpleasant surprise of raised bumps and a red warm tush. There are many ointments available to match every parent’s needs. You may be looking for an ointment without phthalates, parabens, petrolatum or other words that you may not even be able to pronounce or understand, but at least you are in the right direction for your baby’s well being. A good ointment is definitely one keep on your baby essential list. Check out over the counter ointments that do not contain any harmful ingredients. Ointments such as Burt’s bees Natural Diaper ointment, Triple paste, and Babyganics are some of a few products that contain less harmful ingredients. 

Extra clothing

You will probably go for months wondering why you still have those extra clothes in your nursery bag. Ok, maybe within a few weeks because your baby will be growing profusely. Whatever you do, stay away from the clothing. One day you may be thankful for them in a time that is worthy of a sanitation backup crew. It’s always useful to have a shirt, pant, undershirt and sock👚👖👕🧦. Don’t forget to rotate these clothing as your child gets bigger.

Pacifiers

Some babies have one from newborn or when they are older. Some may prefer to use them only during sleep time or use one to soothe them during the day. If your baby uses a pacifier 👶, you know how important it can be to always have one around. It is good to store them in a clean bag, and pack an extra one just in case.
