the best tip i have for nappy changes is in the early days apply a barrier cream each change as it stocks the yucky black poo from sticking to them.
And also when lola had thrush shed just been prescribed anti bs so couldnt have thrush treatment, bepanthan and lots of water really helped her.

Always refill/restock the change bag when you return home,then you're ready at a moments notice! Mine is huge-actually 1 of the oversized handbags-they call me Mary Poppins in playgroup,there's nothing that doesn't fit in and I don't have with me!!!!
I carry more spare pairs of underpants than mothercare!!!!! Tom has had 2 accidents-but I leave nothing to chance!!!!
I love to use asda or tesco own brand baby wipes when I'm out-but use washable reuseable cheeky wipes at home,much more cost effective and environmentally friendly

When my son was a few days old I noticed a really angry looking red patch on his bottom which didn't look like any nappy rash I had seen before. I used Bepanthan initially and asked the midwife to check it out on a routine visit. She confirmed it was thrush and we got a prescription of Canesten from our GP and it cleared within a few days.
I too use the replenish on return routine as I am always in a rush whenever I go out. I repeat the mantra keys, purse, phone as I pat my pockets on leaving. My 3 year old has heard this so many times she now asks "Mum, you got your keys, purse, phone?" whenever we leave the house. Anything else I remember is a bonus!.
