What's In Sophie's Bag

We haven't needed to carry a changing bag around with us for a while now as Sophie is nearly 2 so obviously doesn't need as much. I thought I would share our essentials for going out on local trips;

At the moment we're using this one by Pink Lining. It’s the perfect pattern for Spring/Summer and is just the right size for a toddler too.

I pack a handful of nappies just in case she needs changing as she isn't potty trained yet

Essential for nappy changes and cleaning little hands!

For when Sophie is tired, it provides a comfort for her

Anbesol Liquid
I always have a bottle of this in my bag as it's the only product which helps Sophie when she is teething

I recently picked up a new cup for her which was £3 at Asda. She loves drinking through a straw so I knew she would like it. It's supposedly non spill too.. which is a must when your child insists on tipping their drink everywhere!

Other items which aren't pictured:
Something to distract and keep a toddler occupied is pretty essential to prevent them from getting bored. I usually pack a small colouring book and crayons and her Peppa Pig phone.

Depending on how long we're planning on being out for; I will pack handy snacks such as grapes; mini cheddars, breadsticks etc.

If we're out all day, it's a good idea to pack a change of clothes too just incase of any accidents.

  1. Love posts like this as it gives me ideas for how to pack a bag once Grace gets a little older. Already we're not having to carry quite as much around with us as when she was a little baby.

    1. I'm glad this post has helped and given you some ideas! The rucksack above is quite small which is ideal for everyday essentials. We do have a couple of bigger rucksacks for days out xx

  2. Such a cute bag! Osian mainly drinks water too :) he has the odd juice but he really likes water xx

    1. Thanks! Aaw that's good :). Sophie has never really liked juice but she drinks so much water! xx

  3. Love this post! I think I should get a little rucksack like this for Noah. At the moment, I am cramming both boys' bits into my changing bag! x

    1. Thankyou! They have a couple of boy designs too which are cute! Haha children need so much stuff don't they?! xx

  4. Love this little backpack! Indiana has a cath kid ston one and its so much easier than carrying a huge changing bag - I've just got to always remember the snacks haha xx

    1. Aaw, Cath Kidston ones are lovely! I want to get one for Sophie as they're a bit bigger so ideal for days out etc. Haha definitely! xx

  5. How cute is that little bag! I miss having a bag for my girls! They're too old now really!
