With three kiddos, I think I have an idea of what I need in my baby bag. Sure, we are cloth diapering this time, so it changes things a bit. But, here’s what’s in there:
- peri-bottle: for wetting the
- cloth wipes (about 7 of them)
- 2 diapers
- wet bag for dirty diapers
- burp rag
- extra outfit
- mini first aid kit
- breast pads
- cell phone
- nursing cover/blanket (sometimes)
- changing pad
That’s pretty much what we go out with for any basic outing. I’ll increase the number of diapers if we are going to be out longer. It’s nice to have these pockets and organization to keep everything separate.
These fun and bring pink lining baby changing bags come with a wet bag and very plush changing pad. However, my bag seemed a little full and the pad took up a lot of space, so I used a thinner one that I have. I also used a different wet bag as I didn’t feel this one would hold two wet diapers in it.
Despite using stylish diaper bags for each of my girls, like this Poppins bag, they still seem almost too full. But, I can’t think of anything I could take out and feel okay out and around (most of the time, the nursing cover stays in the car and not the bag).
After using this bag, I did realize that I prefer a bag that is wider more than tall (as it’s hard to get everything easily in view). I also prefer the pockets to take up space outside of the bag, instead of inside. I fell when I put something inside the pockets, it does’t leave as much room on the inside, at least on this bag which is quite thin (front to back).
This bag looks like it’s cloth, but it’s actually more of a soft waterproof fabric so I can wipe messes off if need be. I also like the bright pink lining on the inside and the fun tree of life outside.
What do you have to have in your diaper bag?
