My Changing Bag for 2 under 2

We all know that leaving the house with a small child is a military mission in itself but a changing bag really is an essential piece of survival kit, so it’s important to get it right.

If there is one thing I have learned since becoming a mum, that is to always expect the unexpected, so I try to cover every eventuality within my changing bag.

Now with 2 under the age of 2 to consider, I need to be a lot more mindful and keep my packing to a minimum.  Here is a sneak peek into my changing bag…

Silver Cross Changing Bag

The basics

For my two, the key essentials I always carry include:

  • Changing mat
  • WaterWipes Baby Wipes
  • Tesco Nappies
  • Bepanthen Nappy Care Ointment
  • Tesco Value Nappy bags
  • Calpol


The extras

Some extras that I always like to carry include:

  • Dettol antibacterial surface wipes
  • Vital Baby Sanitising Water
  • Hand sanitiser gel
  • Sterilised bottle and milk for Hudson
  • Snack and drink for Jack
  • Change of clothes
  • Spare muslins
  • Spare dummies


My things

My changing bag has replaced my handbag so I always carry a couple of items for me too:

  • Paracetamol
  • Small hairbrush and hair band
  • Sanitary wear
  • Wallet and phone


As soon as I get home, I always replace anything that I have used.  It’s a good routine to get in to as you never know when you might need to leave the house in a hurry.

Whats inside your changing bag?

    It must be a nightmare with 2 under 2 with all the packing you need to do but I like that you’ve kept it to a minimum. That’s basically what I do too.

    It’s great to be this organised; if it’s possible then it is a bit of a weight off the mind knowing that you’re prepared, I think.

    Lovely bag! I’ve never been that organised, always just shove a couple of nappies and some wipes in a bag as I run out of the door!
