What to Pack in Your Diaper Bag
Get a new diaper bag? How exciting (you know I have four kiddos, right? I find these things exciting!)! Now you just need to know what to pack in your diaper bag, right?
I loved getting new diaper bags for my babies and loading them up with all the necessities to help us survive life outside of the home. Of course, with my firstborn I added everything to the bag except the kitchen sink. Through the years and three more babies later, I have learned to only add what was necessary so that the bag wasn’t too full or too heavy and I could easily find what I need in the bag.
You might think that you need it all, but chances are slim that you’ll need ALL THE THINGS you might think about adding to the bag.
These are the items I find necessary, along with a few optional things you might want in your bag (CLICK ON THE IMAGE TO PRINT). Of course, it depends on the age of your baby, the season, feeding preference, etc.
Of course, this list may depend on the age of the baby, season, location, etc. You can choose to add or delete things from the list as you determine what is necessary for you and your baby.Get this FREE Diaper Bag Checklist Printable, perfect for new parents! #parenting
You can see how I packed my bag:
Best Diaper Bag for a Newborn
Honestly, in my experience, the only time I needed to carry a big diaper bag everywhere was when my babies were between the ages of 0 months to about 6 months, when they would need the most diaper changes or potential clothing changes. After that, I tend to carry a smaller bag for short trips and just bring the big bag when I’m going to be gone all day.
That’s what makes the CiPu diaper bag my favorite all time diaper bag (no exaggeration!). Not only is it just a large yet lightweight diaper bag that only weighs 1.2 lbs, it comes with:
- a smaller, double pouch bag that I use as a cross-body bag,
- a wristlet wallet,
- a diaper changing pad,
- and stroller hooks
- and more!
The main bag has 13 compartments, making it very easy to organize all of your baby supplies. The wristlet has two compartments, which can hold my money, cards, smartphone, coupons, an EpiPen, lipgloss and keys. The double pouch bag I use as a cross-body bag, especially when I am babywearing. It can hold two diapers, a small pack of wipes, the wristlet with everything in it, the diaper changing pad, and a snack or two. (THE VIDEO ABOVE SHOWS THE INSIDE OF THE BAGS!)
The outer material has a stylish print in Heather Gray and is waterproof. To clean all you need to do is wipe it with a damp cloth or wash and air dry. The inside is also waterproof, so even if something spills inside, it can be easily cleaned.
The wristlet and double pouch bag have the same inner and outer material so that everything matches. I use these two the most when I am babywearing.
