The new-mom motto? Be prepared!
Being a parent means being prepared. A well-stocked diaper bag can save the day. But what do you really need in there? It depends on how old your child is, how long you’ll be out, where you’re going, and how prepared you like to be. Here are some tips on what to keep in your diaper bag so you are ready to meet Baby’s needs.
Diaper bag tips
- A waterproof lining and shoulder strap are helpful features.
- Multiple compartments can keep your items organized and easy to find.
- Prevent leaks by packing medicines and snacks in resealable plastic bags.
- Consider buying two diaper bags – a small one for quick trips and a larger one for longer outings. Some moms keep a basic diaper bag or changing supplies in the car at all times.
- Show off your style! You’re not limited to babyish prints these days, so go for fun colors or patterns or shop for something more sophisticated.
- Sometimes the best diaper bags are those that are designed for other purposes, such as tote bags or backpacks. If you don’t find something you think will work well for you, broaden your search.
My first few months as a mother, I wanted to carry everything in my diaper bag. But as a result it just made getting a single item out extremely difficult. Looking for the pacifier meant taking everything out just to find it. I have learned keeping my diaper bag light and organized with just the essentials.
