Nappies… check. Wipes… check. Rash cream… check… bottle… check. Pacifier… check. And the list goes on for all the essential items needed for packing your daily nappy bag. You’re pretty much prepared with everything you know your baby will need without a doubt. But do you have the most essential item needed for those “just-in-case” emergency situations, like if a bottle needs warming and hot water accidentally spills on your baby.
