Life :: What's in my Diaper Bag?

These are my 12 diaper bag essentials, and all of them can be purchased at Amazon. I've mentioned some of them before but they're worth mentioning again because I use them over and over again!

Without further ado, here are my must-haves...

1) Diaper bag. Obviously, in order to fill your diaper bag, you need a diaper bag. I absolutely love this one by Skip Hop. I put it on my registry and was thrilled when I received it. It's beautiful, roomy and comes with a travel changing pad in case you use any sketchy bathrooms.

2) Diapers. Our favorites are still Pampers Swaddlers, followed by Huggies Snugglers.

3) Wipes. Our favorites are still Pampers Sensitive, followed by Huggies Natural Care.

4) Burp cloths. I use these by Dundee. They're pretty basic, but what more do you need? Trey doesn't spit up often, but they come in handy for any and all spills.

5) Nipple shield. I've been using one by Medela as long as I've been breastfeeding and it's perfect for latch problems.

6) Hooter hider. I use this Bébé au Lait nursing cover if I didn't pump before going out.

7) Bottles. We use BPA-Free Born Free bottles and Trey loves them.

8) Blankets. You never know what to prepare for with SoCal's fickle weather, so we bring a blanket in case there's a sudden breeze or we need to block out the sun.

9) Extra outfit. Diaper explosions tend to only happen when we're not at home, so an extra onesie is crucial.

10) Travel size ointment. This mini version of Boudreaux's Butt Paste is the perfect size for your bag.

11) Pacifier. T's favorite is the Avent Free Flow paci. Others have had trouble staying in his mouth.

12) Carrier. This Boba wrap is one of my favorite baby items. I pop T in it and he falls straight to sleep, which is great for outings or just wanting to be hands-free around the house.
