Best Nappy Bags for 2022: 9 Baby Bags For Parents on the Go!

Once you’ve had a baby, the days of launching yourself out the door empty-handed are over. Suddenly you feel like you need to take half the nursery with you so you’re prepared for EVERY situation that may arise. We get it folks, we really do. So what do you need to carry it all? A beautiful nappy bag, that’s what. We have all the best nappy bags for 2022, just for you!

Do you really need a nappy bag?

Babies are anything but predictable, especially when not at home. Having said that, it’s almost certain that your angelic baby is going to hang onto that bowel movement until you’re midway through your grocery shop at least once. And if it’s not a nappy blowout, it’ll be snacks or a bottle, or both. Don’t risk it mama, you absolutely need to cart this stuff around you … for a while at least.

What to look for when shopping for nappy bags

Ok so now that we’ve established you DO need a nappy bag, here’s what you should consider when looking for a nappy bag perfect for YOU:

  • Check the weight: Sometimes you’re going to be taking a fair but with you, so make sure the bag itself isn’t too heavy when empty.
  • Adjustable straps: Adjustable straps make it easy to carry a nappy bag no matter your situation. A long cross-body strap or pram clips are also very handy for offloading your bag to a pram handle (as long as it’s not too heavy!).
  • Water-resistant, wipe-clean interior: Nappy bags need some protection! Water bottle spills, snack spills, soggy rusks, wet clothes and soggy nappies are all going to be in your bag at some point in time (hopefully not all at once!) so you’re going to want to be able to wipe the interior of your bag clean easily!
  • Included accessories: A change mat, a plastic wet bag and insulated bottle carriers are some very valuable extras to carry in a nappy bag, so it’s a complete score if a nappy bag has these already included!
  • External pockets: It ALWAYS helps if a nappy bag has at least one secure external pocket. A safe place to keep your keys, phone or more prized things like a fresh rusk and a dummy. Keeping them on the outside of the bag makes them really easy – and fast – to grab in the heat of the moment.
  • Style longevity: Nappy bags can be up there with other big-ticket items so it helps if you choose a bag style that you can use long after you’ve toilet trained. What used to carry bottles, burp cloths and nappies can also carry a laptop and your lunch!
