What to keep in the Diaper bag

Diaper bag is one of the thing I never leave my home without needless to say all my totes are now diaper bags you will hardly find any makeup stuff but you surely will find loads of diapers and wipes.And I am sure this is something which you will find in every mothers bag if she has a baby or toddler.Intially I use to carry a seperate diaper bag but over the time I realised that it is such a trouble to carry separate bags and I have made my bag as diaper bag.

What to keep in the diaper bag –

Few of the stuffs are usual stuff that is required by the baby every time but there are few stuff that I would like to mention and would suggest you to include if you haven’t included it.

The usual stuff –

  • Diapers
  • Wipes (They double as bum wipes for baby and face wipes for mommy)
  • Toys (Few toys like teether,soft toy)
  • Mat for diaper change – I use a soft rubbery mat which doesn’t take much of space and is easily washed after use.
  • Baby lotion
  • Feeding Bottles
  • Formula (Dry in an airtight container)
  • Water bottle (As I make the formula if required instantly, if required because my baby doesn’t like the formula and refuses it untill and unless he is really hungry and breastfeeding is not possible)
  • Extra set of clothes
  • Bibs and wash clothes
  • Snacks for toddlers

Things that I strongly recommend 

  • First Aid Kit– Include a first aid kit into your diaper bag and include thermometer and nasal drops in it.I also carry my babies basic medicines so that in case I am travelling and it is required I can just  call the pediatrician and give him the medicines.
  • Diaper rash Cream– Keep this cream as when you are travelling or you are outside, the baby will get no diaper free time and can get rashes.
  • Sanitizer– A must for the diaper bag.
  • Keep some bags to dispose the soiled diapers.

From my experience I have learnt ;the things you forget to keep are the ones which are needed the most.But over cluttering also irritates you when your baby is cranky and you can’t find the right stuff at right time ,make pouches like a feeding pouch, diaper pouch and keep the related stuff ,that ways handling the baby and the clutter will be easier.Hope this post  will help you sort out your diaper bag.

    That’s correct, things we forget are the most important one’s. I prefer using disposable bibs outside along with disposable table mats (for restaurants).
