Diaper Bag Essentials! Things you NEVER want to leave the house without!

There is really no worse feeling than when your baby needs something so you reach into the diaper bag and (gasp!) what you need is not. there. It’s only a matter of time before they are melting down and subsequently so are you. Let’s keep everybody happy by making sure you’re stocked up with the essentials. Check out my quick video below to see what NOT to forget when packing your diaper bag!

Here’s the full list:

Diaper Bag – First things first, moms! You need a good diaper bag, preferably with lots of pockets to keep everything organized. I try to keep things in the same pockets always so I can reach in without looking and know where the wipes are. I’m absolutely in love with my Fawn Design bag.

Huggies Diapers – The best.

Huggies Wipes – I love the clutch these come in and it’s refillable, so you can buy wipes in bigger containers and just put a small stack in as needed. Don’t forget to use your Huggies coupons!

Diaper Cream – we have a recipe for DIY Organic Diaper Cream! It’s cheaper and easier on your littles’ sensitive skin!

First Aid Stuff – I like to keep a thermometer, nail clippers and gripe water or teething tablets in there because a baby in pain is a sad (and often loud) baby.

Onesie – Accidents happen, folks! From personal experience – the one time you don’t have one is the one time you’ll need one.

Extra shirt for you – Sometimes accidents happen on you.


Pacifier & Toys – My baby isn’t even a pacifier baby, but sometimes they come in really handy in the car!

Feeding Stuff – Bottle or a nursing cover and nursing pads, whatever you need to easily feed that babe. For older kids, snacks, snacks and more snacks. These can be for you, too. I always keep a granola bar in my bag and I don’t have any kids who eat food yet…

Changing pad – These are so handy, whether you’re changing the babe in an iffy public restroom or at a friend’s house.

That’s it folks. What do you keep in your bag at all times? I’d love to hear what you consider an essential!

I am in love with this easy diy organic diaper cream! It is so easy to whip together and I know EXACTLY what I'm putting on my little one. It works great for creases behind ears, and other dry spots as well!
