So far, we’ve discovered everything our mother taught us about parenting is true! “Being one step ahead” is something we’ve heard our whole lives, but now we understand how much easier and smoother our day is when we’re prepped!
We try (emphasis on try) to re-stock our diaper bags every night, so it is ready to grab in the morning without even thinking what the babes might need for the day.
Like organizing anything else, every item has it’s place so can be easily found and to equally easy to see when it needs to be replaced.
plastic changing mat
small refillable wipe case and back-up wipes
diaper sacks kept in plastic wipe case (we love THESE ones)
antibacterial wipes (for baby and surfaces HERE)
wallet and sunglasses (we love our Hobo wallets HERE)
THESE muslin blankets are perfect. Sold in a two-pack, one for home, one for diaper bag.
Extra complete outfit (onesie, clothes, headband). When our babies were younger we’d keep two extra outfits.
In the other side pocket we keep food and snacks. Two bibs, baby food in pouches, and a bag of baby puffs (HERE) for easy on-the-go snacks.
In the two end pockets we keep one stocked with toys, and the other with a water bottle or two for mama and for baby’s sippy cup.
These hand sanitizer cases from Bath and Body Works are perfect to attach to the side of our diaper bags.
We love THIS diaper bags from Pottery Barn Kids. It is large, comes with a changing mat and has so many pockets so things don’t get lost.
Keeping our babies clean, fed and happy is a big task away from home. Having our diaper bags organized and stocked is key to starting a good day!
How do you keep on top of it all? Please spill your secrets, we need all the help we can get ;)
