What’s In My Diaper Bag

Before our little one was born it was nothing for us to pack an overnight bag and take a weekend road trip or jump in the car and head to church on Sundays. Now it takes planning to make sure the little one has necessities while we are away from home.

I must say the hubby and I pack ladybug’s bag like we aren’t ever coming home. I guess we both anticipate anything happening and want to make sure we have thought of everything. Basically we pack so we don’t have to make a pit stop for diapers, wipes or other essentials.

First of all this bag is life. My hubby picked out the bag which I was against in the beginning, but having a diaper bag that doesn’t slip off your shoulders is very convenient. Of course I have a spare “typical” multi-pocket shoulder bag that stays in the car.

We chose our Baby Boom Spaces bag from Walmart, but you can buy a backpack type of diaper bag anywhere or you could just use a back pack. I mean Ju-Ju Be makes one, Bed Bath & Beyond sells a version and Eddie Bauer makes one that is very similar to the one we have. But the reason why we love this bag is because of all the pockets, the insulated bottle holder and the adjustable straps.

Some of the essentials we pack into our ladybug’s bag include at least one sometimes two change of clothing. We never pack less than six diapers. If we plan to be away from home for awhile then we make sure we have somewhere around 10 to 12 diapers. We prefer the Pampers brand.

We always pack burp cloths in case of accidents or to wipe our baby’s runny nose or even in a pinch to lay down on a not-so-clean surface as well as a spare pacifier and we always have the Aquaphor.

Burp cloths can be used to clean spit up, a runny nose, keep clothes clean while feeding, etc. https://thehousethatwalkerbuilt.wordpress.com/

Bibs are a must and these custom-made oversized double-sided bibs were made for us by the wife of a co-worker.

Although our diaper bag came with its own diaper changer we still bought a portable diaper changer. The one by Sure Fit is what we settled on and we love it. It has pockets for diapers, wipes and other changing essentials and it has a pad that can be sterilized or wiped down.

We love this Sure Fit portable changing kit. It has pockets and a cleanable surface to place your baby. https://thehousethatwalkerbuilt.wordpress.com/
