Diaper Bag Essentials ❤️⠀

Back when my son was a baby, I used a bag from Lululemon. It had compartments, easy to clean fabric and it wasn't too big. When choosing a diaper bag, you want one that works for you and your lifestyle. I know a lot of Mamas like the backpack style. You just wear it on your back. It really doesn't matter what diaper bag you choose, as long as it works for you.

My top 5 must-haves for your diaper bag:⠀

  • 1 Extra clothes for your little one and for yourself
  • 2 Bum and nipple cream
  • 3 Lots of diapers and wipes
  • 4 Wet bag/plastic bag to store a dirty diaper or dirty clothes⠀
  • 5 Change pad or receiving blankets

*snacks (for older children)*⠀

*if you're bottle feeding, bottles and milk*⠀

When my son was a baby, we learned the hard way to always have extra clothes. We were going for a bike and Aiden had a blowout and I forgot extra clothes. Thankfully it was a warm day, so he just had a diaper on. Good news is that he was in a carrier, nestled up to me, so I didn't need to worry about him getting cold. But that was a lesson learned and a mistake I wouldn't repeat again.⠀

Once my son got older, the bag was full of toys, rocks, cars, snacks and books. It's crazy to think how the contents of your diaper bag changes as your baby develops and grows 💙⠀

Then when we were potty training, we went back to having my diaper bag look more like that of a newborn: extra clothes, underwear, wet bag/plastic bag.⠀

Mamas, what are must have things in your diaper bag?⠀

Good luck, Mamas!
