Diaper Bag Necessities – What to Keep in Your Diaper Bag

 This post was developed in partnership with Similac. All opinions are my own.

My husband often complains that it feels like there’s a few bricks in the diaper bag, but just like I tend over pack when we go on vacations, I like to be prepared. You never know, a well stocked diaper bag can save the day.

As the weather warms up, our family has been spending more time outdoors and on-the-go. Some days we’re only out of the house for 20 minutes, but others we can be gone all day. Not all of our day trips are planned so I like to have everything all ready in the diaper bag just in case, including a stock of diapers, toys, and snacks.

What’s in My Diaper Bag?

  • Diapers
    • I try to keep at least 3-4 in the diaper bag at all times, if I know I’ll be out longer I’ll throw in a couple extras
  • Wipes
    • They’re not just for diaper changes, but also to clean up messy hands and faces.
  • Changing Pad
    • Most diaper bags comes with a reusable changing pad, if not you can purchase one separately or use disposable pads.
  • Nursing cover
  • Change of clothes for the baby
  • Plastic bag
    • You never know when your child will have a blowout or don’t have a trash nearby for that stinky diaper.
  • Tylenol
    • adult, children, & infants
  • Bandaids
  • Water bottle
  • Small toy
    • 2-3 in case one falls and gets dirty
  • Sunblock
  • Snacks
  • Nail clippers/tweezers
  • Tissues
  • Chapstick
  • Pen
  • Bib
  • Wallet

With a little one who is now on solids, we’re finding the Go & Grow by Similac pouches a great addition to our diaper bag. At least four days a week we are at the ball field for 2-4 hours for the older kids so the Go & Grow by Similac pouches provide an easy and convenient way for me to feed baby boy. There’s no utensils needed, I just can just screw off the cap and baby boy can feed himself. With two older brothers in the house, he like to be independent and quickly adapted to drinking out of a pouch.

This week we have been exploring new flavor combinations, so far baby boy’s favorite is the Mango, Sweet Potato, and Pear – he takes after his Dada with his love for mango and sweet potato.

    It’s always good to be prepared because you never know what your going to need while on the go or how long you will really be gone for. Sounds like you have a great list of necessities.
