Top 10 Essentials For Your Stroller Carry Bag

A stroller carry bag is a parent's best friend when it comes to convenience and preparedness while on the go with your little one.

Whether you're a seasoned parent, a new one, or an expecting parent, having a well-packed stroller carry bag can make your outings much smoother and more enjoyable.

In this comprehensive guide, we'll walk you through the top 10 essential items you should always have in your stroller carry bag, ensuring you're well-prepared for any situation.


1. Nappy Changing Essentials

When you have a little one, whether it’s a newborn or a toddler, preparation is key. This is especially the case when it comes to nappies - the last thing you want it your child stuck in a dirty nappy for hours.

Changing your baby's nappy is crucial for maintaining their comfort, health, and well-being. Firstly, it ensures hygiene by preventing skin irritation and potential infections caused by prolonged exposure to urine and faeces.

Additionally, if you don’t change your baby’s nappy regularly, they could be at risk of ‘nappy rash’ or ‘diaper rash’. This is a painful skin condition that can occur due to the damp environment within a dirty nappy.

Always stock your stroller carry bag with a good supply of nappies, baby wipes, and a portable changing pad.


2. Feeding Supplies

A well-fed baby is a happy baby - and it’s important to make sure your little one never goes hungry. Whether you’re only out for a quick stroll at the park or you’re planning a day out, always keep backup feeding supplies.

Regardless of whether you’re using bottles or breastfeeding, you should always have feeding supplies on hand when you’re travelling with your little one. Be sure to stock up with bottles, formula (if you use formula), breast pads, and a small cooler bag with an ice pack to ensure the milk remains fresh.


3. Extra Baby Clothes

There’s no denying that babies can create huge messes for such small humans - which is why it’s important to carry spare clothing in your stroller carry bag. After all, you never know when they’ll need them!

Likewise, babies and toddlers have a habit of fidgeting - and this can lead to them losing their shoes or socks.

We’d recommend that you bring a spare onesie, spare socks, and other essentials. For example, if you aren’t sure whether it will be sunny later, bring a spare sun hat to protect your baby’s head from the sunshine.

On the flip side, if the weather forecast predicts rain, bring a waterproof for your toddler to keep them dry on your travels.


4. Baby Blanket

Baby blankets are a carry-bag essential - a blanket can keep your little one warm and comfy. Babies can't regulate their body temperature well, so a blanket helps them stay just right.

Likewise, blankets can be an effective way to provide shade from the sun. Additionally, when travelling to the park, you could also use the baby blanket to sit down on - after all, you don’t want to get muddy or grassy!

These soft covers also provide a sense of security, making babies feel safe and cosy. Blankets are handy for swaddling, which helps babies sleep better by calming their movements.

Plus, they become familiar, comforting items in your baby's world, creating a sense of comfort and routine. So, baby blankets aren't just for warmth; they're cuddly companions that make babies feel happy and relaxed.


5. Sunscreen and Baby Sunhat

Protecting your baby from the sun's harmful rays is essential. In the spring and summer months, be sure to carry a high-quality baby sunscreen with broad-spectrum protection.

Babies have sensitive skin that's easily harmed by the sun's rays. Sunscreen shields their delicate skin from harmful UV radiation, preventing sunburn and reducing the risk of skin damage and future skin cancers.

You should also pack a comfortable sunhat that shields your little one's face from direct sunlight. A sunhat offers extra protection by shading your baby’s face, neck, and ears.

It's especially crucial during peak sun hours. Carrying these items ensures you're ready to safeguard your baby from the sun's harmful effects while enjoying outdoor adventures, keeping them safe, comfortable, and free from sunburn.


6. First Aid Kit

Unfortunately, accidents can happen at any time - so it's important to have a compact first aid kit in your stroller carry bag.

Include essential medical items such as adhesive bandages, antiseptic wipes, infant pain relievers, and any specific medications your baby may need. Having these essentials readily available can offer peace of mind during your outings.


7. Snacks and Baby Food

For older babies and toddlers, having a selection of healthy snacks and baby food can save the day.

Pack some nutritious options like baby-friendly fruit pouches, crackers, or cut-up fruits and veggies. Don't forget a spill-proof sippy cup filled with water or juice.


8. Toys and Entertainment

Pack some toys or some forms of entertainment into your stroller carry bag. Keep your little one engaged and happy with a few small toys or a favourite comfort item, like a soft toy or a dummy.

If your child has a favourite toy, make sure you pack it! This can prevent tantrums or soothe them if they get upset.

These can provide comfort for your little one, especially when travelling long distances or going for long strolls. Small toys can be a lifesaver when your baby gets fussy or needs a distraction.


9. Hand Sanitiser and Baby Wipes

Maintaining hygiene is essential, especially when you're out and about. Carry hand sanitiser for yourself and baby-safe hand wipes to clean your baby's hands and surfaces.

Baby wipes are a must - they can keep your child clean. Whether it’s wiping food from around their mouths or giving their hands a quick wipe, baby wipes can save the day when you’re out and about.


10. Your Essentials

Lastly, don't forget your essentials. Although you may have your own handbag, or you may put your necessities into your pockets, it can save space to simply pack your essentials into your stroller carry bag.

Carry your wallet or purse, phone, keys, and any necessary personal items in a separate compartment of your stroller carry bag. Many stroller carry bags have compartments with velcro zips, making it easier to separate your belongings from your baby’s’.
