Packing a Diaper Bag

Diaper bags. For some reason this was so intimidating for me coming in as a new mom. The fact that I needed to make a bag for just in case scenarios…when I had no idea what those scenarios could be freaked me out. I thought …diapers. wipes..blankets and bottles right?

Nope. Maybe for miracle babies but let’s be honest poop happens and we need to be prepared when the shit hits the fan(excuse my french I needed the pun). You know what I mean if you’ve seen an overfed baby come home after an hour and give you THAT smile.

Anyway, here’s the rundown.

All of these items can be purchased on Amazon.com. This is my go to and if you sign up for Prime, shipping is free for two day and you can get great deals if you sign up for their baby registry and subscriptions. I love Amazon and they don’t pay me to brag!

You can always throw extra things in there, I like to take formula for longer trips. Bottles, etc.¬†Also, diaper bags usually come with a changing pad, so I bring that with it constantly.¬†Extra things you may want? Nail clippers, band aids, a pacifier holder, a pacifier clip …aspirin. Hehe.

Let me know what you carry in your diaper bag! Do you have a favorite brand?
