It’s one of the most asked questions with cloth ‘how do you cope when you’re out?’ The answer is, just like you do with disposables but with less mess.
Most of us carry wet bags which is the only difference to normal changing bags, these are amazing bags made with PUL like the nappy outer’s and keep all the smell and the wet in from the nappies and wipes and sometimes clothes too.
For a typical day out I carry 4 cloth nappies 4 reusable wipes and 4 fleece liners, a wet/dry bag, a couple of bibs, a couple of extra cloth wipes for hands and face, a bottle of water and a baby grow. I also carry a small tub of coconut oil for Cairo’s bum, along with some teething powder or calpol if he’s ill a small bottle of antibacterial hand gel and some toys this all fits with my purse, keys and if needs be a hair brush, bobbles, lippy a pair of reusable breast pads and sometimes even a sling.
I have a fairly standard size Cath Kidston nappy bag, it has a really long adjustable strap so I can carry it whilst baby wearing too.
The biggest difference between cloth and disposable is that you take your mess home.
