Spare clothes for each child, but extra pants.
Nappies, 2/3 maybe more depending where we're going.
Suncream if applicable
Hats depending on season
Anti bac hand gel
Wet bags
Their drinks
Snacks if relevant

Purse, phone, keys etc.

If I'm just going to Tesco's/stay and play I just take one nappy, some wipes, pants all showed in a tiny wet bag :)

I don' miss the days when all three were in nappies and I'd have a bag of nappies as well as the changing bag for a day out!!!!

I used to take the contents of Oli's bedroom, but I've learnt to limit now. Normally just a nappy (or multiple if we are out for a while), some wipes, a change of top, snack and drink

And if needed-

:shock: Some of you ladies carry loads!

I generally take:

Small wetbag with wipes
Drink of water and small snack (organix bar or something like that)
My purse, phone and keys

Very occasionally I take a spare t-shirt and if we are out for the day I take a small lunch bag!
