One of my favorite type of posts is when other bloggers write about what’s in their bag. I love those. I’m always super curious to see how other parents pack their diaper bags, especially when they also have kids right around the same age as Olivia. Am I packing too light? Am I packing too much? Is there a certain parenting secret I’m missing? Can I even call it a “Diaper” bag anymore if there aren’t actually any diapers in there? Life questions, people. Anyway, most of the time, I’m the over-packer. I just can’t help myself! Here is what I currently keep in my
Panties: Even though Olivia has been very good with the whole potty training thing, I still like to bring a backup pair (or two) of panties……juuuuust in case.
Snacks: On days when I know we’re going to be out for a longer period of time, I’ll throw in a little bag of crackers or a granola bar! I don’t like the thought of Olivia ever being hungry, bonus points because it also buys me a little quiet shopping time ;)
Extra Outfit: Along with the “just in case there’s an accident” items, I also like to pack an extra outfit. Like I said, juuuuust in case.
Huggies Clutch ‘N’ Clean Wipes: Oh I love these babies so much. I was looking all over for a portable wipe container, but never found one I liked–until now! My favorite part about these wipes is the strap, it’s so convenient! I can easily strap it around the outside of my diaper bag, to ensure more inside storage. In fact, even when I don’t bring my diaper bag, I like to have these handy. I have one on the handle of our stroller, one in my car and I even pack them in my bag when Olivia isn’t even around! They are useful at all times, not to mention super stylish. How cute are the designs?! Even though Olivia isn’t in diapers anymore, us moms know that baby wipes are still used wayyyy past the diaper stage!
Sippy Cup: I would be a fool to ever leave home without this bad boy. Milk or water, I need one of these at all times.
Sunglasses: In the rare case that she actually wants to wear them for longer than a millisecond.
And then a few things for myself:
My wallet, phone, camera (not pictured, obviously), sunglasses, lipstick for the day, gum, extra bobby pins and hair ties!
What do you keep in your bag? I’d love to know!
