Nappy bags

What is our Nappy Bag Initiative?

Put Them First (PTF) works closely with various hospitals around Brisbane to gift fully stocked nappy bags to carers as soon as they collect a newborn baby from the hospital.

Our volunteers carefully pack each bag with:

  • Bathing products
  • Bibs
  • Bottles
  • Clothes
  • Cream
  • Dummies
  • Nappies
  • Nappy Sacks
  • Toy’s
  • Wipes
  • Wraps

Why nappy bags?

“Sometimes the carer has very little notice to go and collect a baby, is unprepared and does not have all that they need. We want to ease that stress during what is already a difficult time by providing the essentials
that will help get the carer and bub through the first 24 hours.

I thought about what support I would have appreciated and that is how our nappy bag initiative was born.

– Heather Roddick, Founder of PTF

Give the Gift of ‘a Lending Hand’

The current alternative care system is unfortunately not well-equipped and constrained by lack of resources and donations. PTF work tirelessly to deliver as many nappy bags to hospitals in need, but we need your help. Throughout our lives we all feel the effects of uncertainty, stress, pressures and economic downturns. Help us ensure the next generation does not have to also feel that right from birth. Give the gift of ‘a lending hand’ and help us help carers across Brisbane give children a second chance at a happy life.

If you like to donate a nappy bag, you can do so using the form below.

Alternatively, if you have any additional supplies of Nappy Bag contents that you would like to donate, please contact us (hyperlink) to donate. Every bit counts, and every lending hand is another child getting their second chance of life.

If you have been a recipients of one of our nappy bags, we would love to hear from you!

The Gift of Resources in Times of Need

Our nappy bags are essential in helping carers look after their appointed baby, who is often dropped off at a carers home with only a few hours notice and with just the clothes the baby is wearing. To alleviate their stresses and make the transition a lot easier for the carers and the babies, the contents of PTF’s Nappy Bags are the very essentials they need to care for the child for the first few days – the most exhausting days.

Another important feature of these nappy bags, is it provides the child something which is theirs. Often children in foster care have few, if any possessions; their backpacks, toys, etc are generally owned by the foster carer and don’t go with the child. Whilst our nappy bags go home with the carer when they collect the baby from the hospital, if the baby is moved to another location, the bag and its contents go with the baby. This is why we ensure the bag comes with a toy, that the child can always cherish and know is theirs.
