Baby Changing bag Vs Joey's nursery bag

As you may have read,  Joey has started nursery recently and with that comes the addition of a new bag for him to take to nursery. So does this mean Joey's lovely Pink Lining changing bag is now useless??? I do still use his Pink Lining changing bag occasionally when we're on a long day out, so I thought I would compare the contents of his changing bag to his nursery bag.

Pink Lining changing bag
As Joey has got older I've found that I don't need to put as much into his changing bag as I used to.
- Nappies: Obvs nappies are always in the bag, 4 nappies seems to be the most you can fit in the nappy sections. We never seem to need anymore than that actually.
- Baby Wipes:  I always buy Sensitive baby wipes that come with the plastic lid so they stay fresher.  Wipes that just have the sticky strip always seem to go dry quicker. I always buy mine from Asda or Aldi.
- Nappy Bags: a must if your out and about and not near a baby change are scented nappy bags. Handy also for putting any dirty bowls or cutlery after lunchtime.
- Nappy Cream: always have 2 tubes of nappy cream, 1 for his changing bag and 1 for at home
- Teething Gel: Joey has a lot of teeth and goes through teething very randomly so we never go anywhere without it. We tend to always go for baby bonjela.
-  Calpol: I tend not to need to give him any during the day but it's always in the bag just incase.
- Anti-bacterial hand gel: even before I had Joey this has always been in my bag
- Bib: Joey is a messy eater AND milk drinker so having a bib is always necessary
- Spare clothes: I've sometimes made the mistake of not having a spare change of clothes for Joey and then he has an accident.
-  2 bottles
- Yoghurt and spoon: Joey loves his yoghurt as a snack.
-  Joeys changing bag doubles as mummy's handbag so it always has my purse, phone, deodorant, Lip balm & sunglasses

Nursery bag
Joey has a brand new bag that he takes to nursery. I wanted to get him a cartoon backpack so I got him this Avengers bag from Sports Direct for £10. As he goes to nursery for 3 full days, his bag is usually full to the brim.
- 2 bottles
- wipes
- change of clothes
- nappies
- nappy cream
- nursery diary

I'm in two minds whether to buy a new but smaller changing bag for when we're out and about with Joey. But at 16 months old this post gives you some idea as to what we put in his changing bags.

Is their any item or changing bag that you couldn't be without?
