The other day one of my friends, a soon-to-be first time mom asked me just what she should have in her diaper bag. The must bring with everywhere things that should be with you all the time, things to grab if you are just in a hurry — and so on. I thought I would share what every parent needs to tote along with them on-the-go, cute diaper bags included. From the essentials to the little extras to Grayson’s favorite things – I am inviting you to take a peek in my diaper bag!
What’s inside your diaper bag? What diaper bag are you currently coveting? I’d love to know!
The Diaper Bag Essentials 1 of 5I always make sure the diaper bag is packed all the time, ready to go. I make it a habit to re-stock every evening if we are out and about or re-fill as needed. But - if you are in a hurry, just grab the essentials. Diapers, wipes, rice cereal, a bottle, formula and baby food, and pacifier are always with us. I have a bottle of Tylenol which I usually use after shot appointments that is always in my diaper bag.
I love these this new wipes from Piyo Piyo
Grayson's favorite pacifiers are from MAM
We always use bottles from Born Free
Pack It Up 2 of 5Along with all of the essentials, don't forget to pack extra clothes, a small blanket and during the colder months - an extra hat.
Baby Favorites 3 of 5Grayson's wooden toy, lightweight blanket, lovie and this oh-so-cute diaper bag are my favorites! I always suggest having an extra blanket on hand for any accidents. During car rides or when shopping, Grayson loves playing with his lovie and toys. Take your little one's favorite things when on-the-go so they are content and happy.
Our favorite lightweight organic blanket from Little Hip Squeaks
Grayson's lovie is from Little Giraffe
Extras, Extras! 4 of 5
My Favorite Bags 5 of 5My husband is constantly talking about my slight diaper bag obsession. Like handbags and shoes -- you can never have to many! But these two pretties are my favorite -- because they don't look like diaper bags! I love everything they come with too - like clutches for mom inside.
One of my favorite gifts is this Petunia Picklebottom bag from Layla Grayce
I absolutely love that the Casey bag doesn't look like a diaper bag from Timi and Leslie
