While I’m no diaper bag expert, I do know that diaper bags are all dependent upon your lifestyle and your family. So many factors go into this; number of kids, method of feeding, etc.. and there’s no ‘right or wrong’ thing to have on hand. I’ve complied a list of items that I have kept in our diaper bag that have helped me stay organized while out and about!
First and foremost, I am so glad I went with Fawn Design, The Original Diaper Bag. I used it with Kylie too and it’s such a great, high quality bag. It’s functional and sophisticated looking and I love that it can be worn multiple ways (backpack, messenger, etc.). It’s very durable (still looks new despite using it for 2.5 years now!) and love that it’s faux leather so can be easily wiped down. I have so many favorite things about this bag; the gold hardware and zippers, easily accessible pockets, and convenient top grab handle make this bag the best on the market (in my opinion).
Above are some of the contents that I keep in the bag. Since Caden is still a newborn, there isn’t much I need (i.e. I don’t need teethers or books to keep him entertained just yet) and it’s all pretty basic. I love these changing pads (see above pic!) that the bag comes with. This is great for when we are out and about and I need a clean, sanitized area to change him. Again, it’s faux leather so it’s easy to clean! Next up, I always keep a change of clothes (or two!) in the bag. I love these onesies by Posh Peanut (similar, here) and these from amazon. They are lightweight, don’t take up much room, and perfect for any occasion. Other contents include; water wipes, diapers, burp cloth, Earth Mama diaper balm, pacis, and nipple cream (this one or this one).
This also doubles as my purse so I have my personal belongings in here too…keys, wallet, sunglasses, lipgloss, etc! Surprisingly enough, the bag still feels really light and I have plenty of room to add a lot more to it as he gets bigger and needs different items!
