Thanks to TJ for this Frugal Baby Tip!
When we are out & about I also use plastic market bags for dirty nappies.
I twist or knot them shut and throw into my backpack (rucksack). Then I put them into the recycle bin after rinsing quickly. I figure that since I must recycle them anyway, I get one more use out of them and I don't have to deal with more laundry as I would with a commercial bag that requires washing.
For wipes I use cheap thin washcloths. I keep them dry in backpack and I have two Ziplock bags. One is clear and the other is printed with a design (because it came from the deli). The clear one holds clean cloths and the printed one holds used cloths.
I wet the cloth before using with a peri bottle. If water isn't enough to remove sticky material then I squirt a bit of baby lotion from a small bottle in sack/pack onto the cloth. So far this method has worked wonderfully but my daughter is still just nursing, no solid food.
