On The Go: What's In My Diaper Bag...


What's in the bag…

Diaper Bag & Necessities: Bella Tunno Bag ℅ // Diapers // Wipe Case // Burp Cloth ℅ // Changing Pad // Bibs // Paci Holder // Outfit

I have been wanting to do a "What's in my diaper bag" post for quite some time now. I can't believe my little sweetheart is already three months old. It's great to ask advice from other mamas, but it's really all a learning process that you have to experience for yourself. You have to do what works for you. It seems like Madeline and I are on the go all the time, and I feel like I've "perfected" the items I need to take along. I am the queen of overpacking, so I always feel like I take too much, but all of these items I've found to be great to have when you're on the go with baby. Here are my must haves!

1. Diapers: I always take along 3-4 diapers. I love diapers from The Honest Company. I have been   using these since Madeline was born because the fun prints make me so happy and add some excitement to the diapering experience. But through using them, I have become so pleased with the diapers and also the customer service The Honest Company provides.

2. Wipes: I love wipes from The Honest Company or Pampers Sensitive wipes. This cute wipe case is probably my favorite thing in Madeline's diaper bag.

3. Travel Size: Travel size things are the best! I always take along some powder, a Dreft stain remover penhand sanitizer gel, and nipple cream (this travel size is what the hospital gave me, so I keep the small size in the diaper bag and have a larger size at home).

4. Pacifiers: I always take at least two pacifiers along. Madeline's favorites are the MAM newborn pacifiers. I also take along Binky Spritz for emergency cleanings.

5. Diaper Changing: I pack a portable changing pad and an extra blanket for changing diapers on the go.

6. Bibs: Sometimes I put a bib on Madeline for feedings, so having one for on the go is nice. I am beyond obsessed with these from Kate Spade! Yes, one has a peter pan collar and the other has a bow…can you say ADORABLE?!

7. On the go feedings: I always pack a pair of nursing pads, and I love having my Milk Snob at hand to use as a nursing cover! A burpie cloth is also a must have.

8. Outfit: Lastly, I always have an outfit change for Madeline in case of a spit up or blowout. Some days I even consider bringing two for Madeline and one for me haha. 

If you're looking for a little advice on what to pack in your diaper bag, I hope this helps. But like I said, you have to do what works for you :)

What are some of your on the go must haves?

Delightfully Yours,

  4. I absolutely love your blog! I'm about to have my 1st any day now. Lol. It's a girl 😊 I'm so excited I can't wait!. I wanna thank you for being an inspiration to new young mom that you don't have to give up your fashion to be a good mom. Any advice for me? 😊

    1. Thank you, Ali! You're so sweet. And CONGRATS! You are in for the most exciting and amazing ride of your life. :) There is nothing more amazing than being a Mama. My best advice would be to try your best to take it one day at a time, soak up every second with your girl because time FLIES, and let making your bed be your main accomplishment of the day (I know this sounds crazy but I'm serious!). Prayers for a safe and smooth delivery!
