I got a diaper bag at my shower and started packing it with stuff so i could get more organized. What do you all include in there? I don't really plan on going out much when we have him home at first I'm just preparing and organizing.
I think I put a pack of wipes, hand sanitizer, travel size lotion and powder. some desitin. Not sure what else.
It's been so long since I've had to pack a diaper bag, I just can't remember all the stuff that has to go in it! I think I will put a change of clothes in there for sure, blowouts are a for sure thing with babies. A few diapers and inserts plus a wet bag and a pack of wipes. Probably an additional pair of undies and flushable kid wipes for my bigger kids. A burp rag and my nursing wrap, and a couple changes of nursing pads. A thin blanket, and my baby wrap. Plus the stuff I already carry in my purse, a snack for my kiddos, my wallet, sanitizer, a travel brush, chapstick, sunglasses, keys. Dang, I'm glad I have a big bag!
I will have 2-3 extra onesies/outfits, diapers, wipes, extra binkies (pacis), a pair of socks, 1 receiving blanket, scented poopy diaper bags (got some at my baby shower), hand sanitizer, breast pads, nursing cover, other misc nursing/pumping items, burp cloths, lotion, and wet wipes (to wipe down the little changing pad that came with the bag when needed). Thankfully it's a big(ish) bag. Also, wallet, keys, and probably bottled water for me.
ETA: the scented poopy bags are also good for bagging clothes that have been pooped in/soiled in some way.
Extra outfits (x2 for baby, shirt for me)
Wet bag for diapers
Mini disposable bags
Travel size baby lotion, wash, etc.
Nursing pads, lanolin, etc.
Health/grooming kit (thermometer, nasal aspirator, comb, etc.)
Notepad/pen (for tracking feedings, or whatever other random thing that comes up)
And I'm sure I'm forgetting something. I have a decent sized bag, and with my boys I was constantly going out and forgetting something, so I'm trying to be well prepared this go-round. I'll probably toss in snacks and a water bottle before we go out, but won't keep that stuff in there all the time.
