What’s In Your Diaper Bag?

what's in your diaper bag

Every new mom has a million and one questions about what they should have, what they should do, if they will be a good mom, the list is endless, trust me, I know. I was one of those moms when I found out I was pregnant was for the first time. You read blog post after blog posts, talk to friends, talk to family and there seems to be an answer for everything, which can be good or bad depending on what answer you were really wanting to hear. One thing that I wondered about was, what do I put in my diaper bag? Since I never had a baby before, I had no idea what I could possibly need every time I leave the house, and of course, that list changed as my son got older. Here is what I found the most useful to always keep in my diaper bag. (I also tend to use my diaper bag as a purse too, carrying a baby and 1 bag is enough. So I keep my wallet and keys in there too)

  1. Diapers, obviously
  2. Wipes, another obvious one
  3. At least 1 pair of extra clothes because babies tend to go through at LEAST one outfit a day
  4. Burp cloth
  5. Blanket
  6. If you’re breastfeeding, a nursing cover
  7. If you’re bottle feeding, makes sure you have enough bottles filled with water and formula in a to go container
  8. Diaper cream
  9.  A couple toys
  10. Depending on the age of your baby, you may want to pack some snacks
