As I am due to give birth to Baby Spruels in October, I have been
wanting needing a Pink Lining Changing Bag ever since I first clapped eyes on one, they do a large range suitable for all tastes. I loved the Hydrangea design, as this reminded me of the same flowers in my late Nan’s garden, I have a fabulous husband who brought me this design last month.
Whilst starting out on my new found blogging hobby, I came across that Pink Lining are looking for Brand Ambassadors for Pink Lining to blog, so here is my submission……
As I haven’t given birth yet (but do have a nearly 6 year old) these are some of my ideas and what I am planning for my Changing Bag Essentials:
Pink Lining Changing Bag
Since my Pink Lining ‘Not so Plain Jane’ Changing Bag arrived, I was dying to get filling this up. The bag design is so beautiful and I was originally toying between this bag i purchased, or the tote bag version. Whilst looking you can also get twin versions, which have more room and extra compartments. I went for this style as more side pockets. But you can carry on using these bags after not needing a changing bag, that is what I am intending to do myself.
The bag itself is very spacious, with insulated bottle holders, mirror, keyring, pockets inside and out, zipped secure pockets. Also included is a changing mat and zip bag (which I have an idea for below). The outer bag also has a wipeable material as originally I was worried this would get ruined, but Pink Lining have thought of everything.
My Changing Bag Essentials
I have done a list and some ideas, not just for newborn but also for when weaning. I am not thinking somebody would use every single one of these items, but I wanted to give a varied list of ideas, a Changing Bag Brainstorm.
Below is some of my items I am planning to use in my Pink Lining Bag:
- Nappy Bags –Also ideal for odd ends of snacks, like apple middles
- Spare Clothes for Baby –Incase of accidents, remember socks
- Spare Clothes for Mummy –Incase of getting covered in sick
- Muslin Squares
- Wipes –I personally have always like Huggies Pure
- Spare Dummy –Also remember a dummy clip
- Medicine –Calpol Sachets are great, remember Paracetamol for Mummy too
- Nappy Cream/Baby Moisturiser
- Suncream –I am using SPF50 to be safe
- Plasters –Wether little one hurts themselves, or mummy has a blister
- Hand Sanitizer
Inside the Pink Lining Changing Bag you also receive a Zip Bag, I am planning on using this to make sure all my lotions and potions don’t spill out.
