Toddler Travel Tip: Diapers and nappies in Bali

By Grace Koelma | Dare List Mama

The number one question I had before visiting Bali with my little nomadic family wasn't what the exchange rate was or how much a latte costs (though finding the best coffee on Ubud was high on my list). I'm definitely a coffee snob coffee appreciator.

No, my #1 question was all about nappies and where I'd be able to get 'good' ones.

Any mum of a baby or toddler knows the basic rule: not all nappies are made equal.

After a few 'poosplosians' and bed wetting accidents in Bali, we realised the worst. Simply put: Balinese diapers are simply not the same quality as what I'm used to in Australia (and what you'll likely find in Europe and North America).

The main issue seems to be absorbency and inadequate anti-leakage tabs. But it's not all bad, and some brands are better than others.

In the video above I do a complete run through of the diaper and baby wipes brands we liked and didn't, comparative costs, as well as some other must-have baby items you should bring with you, depending on the length of your stay.

And if all else fails, there's always toilet training! ;)​
