Always Have the Diaper Bag Prepped
Preparing for an outing with your baby can feel like packing for a vacation. There are so many things you need to remember that it can become overwhelming to pack the diaper bag every time for fear that you will forget something as you are trying to rush out the door.
It is best to always keep the bag packed with essentials so you only need to grab a couple of things when you are ready for an outing.
Typically, you will want to have your diaper bag stocked with:
- Changing pad
- Plastic bags for diapers and trash
- Bottles for formula or breastfeeding cover
- Water bottle and snacks for yourself
- Pacifier (with extras)
- Extra outfit in the event of a diaper blowout
- Diaper cream
- Sunscreen or hat
