I’m an expert packer. Call me Mother Packer!
But seriously I carry everything in Mia’s bag. We have 2 bags always ready. One for the mall and one for school. The reason why we have two is just because we didn’t want to bring a big bag in school. “Who took up a huge chunk of space in the shelf?!” Not us!
We got our bags from Pottery Barn kids because they have the cutest designs. The personalisation was also a big selling point for me. For easy recognition and also for that added “charm” hahaha.
We have this design in 3 sizes (Small, Large and Rolling). The rolling one is being used for overnights and travels.
What to pack:
- 2 sets of clothes
- Feeding Bottles and Milk (4 bottles for mall bag and 2 bottles for school bag)
- Changing Mat
- Muslin Squares/Lampin (5pcs for mall bag and 3 pcs for school bag)
- Diapers (5pcs for mall bag and 3 pcs for school bag)
- 1 pair of adult socks and 1 pair of kids socks
- Baby Wipes
- Anti-Mosquito patch
- Medicines (Paracetamol)
- Nasal Aspirator
- Trash bag
- Aciete De Manzanilla
- Cotton Swabs
- Diaper Rash Cream
- Disinfectant Spray
I know this might start a debate on whether you should use a harness for your child or not. Other people see this as treating your child like a dog. For me personally, I do want Mia to always be on a harness for safety reasons. She is already at an age where she wants to explore and walk around. I would like to feel comfortable every time we are out that she will not be able to run far away from us.
I have 2 types of Baby Straps: a backpack and a harness type
