Packing a diaper bag that contains everything you do need while out and about with baby can leave some new moms perplexed. You may be wondering what is absolutely essential to place in a diaper bag, and what can be left at home – there is no need to pack the kitchen sink to clean hands on-the-go!

Packing the Perfect Diaper Bag

First, you need to select a diaper bag that suits your style and needs. For some moms, a large purse will do, and for others, a separate bag that can handle the inevitable spills and crumbs that accompany little ones is an absolute must. “Mom’s” pick? The Slide Tote Bag by Go GaGa! This versatile, modern tote bag that is both roomy and stylish is very comfortable and can be worn by Dads, as well! Plus, it comes with a discreet changing pad for diaper changes while out and about.

Second, diapers, diapers and more diapers. Whether you use cloth diapers or disposables, having these on hand is truly a necessity.

Third, add some eco-friendly baby wipes to your bag, such as Jackson Reece or Bum Boosa™, for diaper changes and quickly cleaning hands and mouths.

Fourth, choose healthy, portable snacks for toddlers that make the least amount of mess while on-the-go. HAPPYBABY PUFFS are a great option, as are Plum Organics re-sealable pouches filled with yummy, organic blended fruits and veggies.

Fifth, entertain fussy tots with easy-to-pack, lightweight toys, such as the Trix Triangle by Haba or the twistable, bendable and pliable cuff by Oh Plah. Small board books pack nicely, as well, and are always a kid-pleaser.

Sixth, tissues and/or organic burp cloths for infants. Runny noses and spit-up are a natural part of being a baby, and being without anything but the hem of your dress or shirt sleeve is never fun!

Seven, BPA-free water bottles, such as the Twist’N Pop Straw Cup by Born Free to keep toddlers hydrated, and regular bottles for formula if you are not breastfeeding. Don’t forget to pack a water bottle for yourself, as well!

Just these seven items will keep everyone healthy and happy while on the move, and won’t leave Mom or Dad with aching shoulders at the end of the day!
