5 Handbag Essentials for the Working Mum
When that alarm goes in the morning, a number of parents in our office know how difficult it is to just get sorted for the day – especially when you have a little one throwing a mass amount of attitude your way!
When we finally do get to leave the house, we can guarantee that we have forgotten something that was needed whether it be a baby wipe, a drink (non-alcoholic during the busy working hours we are afraid!) or some hand sanitiser.
Fear not! We have compiled our “go to” list of essentials that are a must when dealing with juggling the demands of a baby/toddler/child and trying to remain professional within office hours.
An absolute MUST! The number of meetings I have walked in to with baby sick down my shoulder is sending shudders down my spine even to this day! Not to mention, the mucky looks received when dropping my child off at nursery with a snotty nose with nothing to wipe it on …. Just make sure you carry them and you will thank us!
I barely have time to get myself ready on a morning some days let alone hydrate myself properly. It isn’t until I have dropped my daughter at nursery that I notice how thirsty I am so carrying this is essential.
I am guilty of occasionally skipping breakfast when I am rushed (I know, a complete sin!) but for those days, I always make sure there is a healthy snack in my bag. On good days, it’s fresh fruit (but that’s if I remember to pack it!) otherwise I always keep a Nakd bar in my bag for a snack on the go.
I don’t even question what is on my hands anymore after dropping my daughter at nursery but I know I couldn’t be more thankful for the hand sanitiser and moisturiser saving the day.

Always, always, always needed. For those mishaps that a baby wipe can’t solve…a full change is just required.
If anyone else has any ideas, let us know in the comments – we could always use them to make our days run a little smoother!
