4 Responses to Baby Checklist: Diaper Bag Essentials

  1. I have a couple of tips I found useful for my diaper bag:

    I always include a clean t-shirt for myself with my baby’s clean change of clothes. You WILL get drooled/spit-up/pooped on. Target and Old Navy have nice thin tees that don’t take up hardly any room.

    If the dollar store is out of baby diaper disposal bags, check the pet section for doggie clean up bags. The bags are nearly identical, and include a scented option, for the same price (75 for $1).

    I keep things organized in separate bags. I particularly like those clear plastic zippered bags that our sheet sets came in – they’re a good size and you can see everything. This helps me take inventory when I’m running late.
    Baby and mom change of clothes – check.
    Diaper change stuff – check.
    Feeding stuff (bottles, nursing cover, snacks for mom) – check.
    Miscellaneous necessities – check.

  2. Thank you for the tip about thinking about a diaper bag as an investment, especially if you plan on having more than one kid. My sister is thinking about starting to get her family started, but I don’t think she has any sort of supplies yet. I will send this to her so she can know how to have an efficiently stocked diaper bag.

I freely admit that I am not always the most creative or original person when it comes to crafting, decorating, organizing, cooking, etc...but I love being inspired by great ideas and putting my own spin on them! Look around, stay a while, and I hope through my *unoriginality* I can provide some inspiration to you, too!
