I am writing a homework assignment and I am trying to write "I had to start bringing my umbrella".
I know that to say "I started eating" it would be 食べはじめる，or to say "I started drinking" it would be 飲み始める。
I have no idea how to start writing "I had to start bringing an umbrella".
This is what I think it is: 傘を連れて行き初めていけない
This would be in the context of: It was raining so much, I had to start bringing an umbrella because I did not want to get wet.
