Nursery Bag- What to Pack?


Up until now the only baby bag you've needed is your maternity bag filled with nappies, snacks and one of everything to cover all eventualities. But when it comes to starting nursery your baby will need their own bag to bring with them each day. It's that first possession that belongs to them, the start of being independent. So let's make this transition as easy as possible and give you a check list to make sure you're not forgetting anything in that all important nursery bag.

What to pack?
