Must Haves in BabyA's Diaper Bag

toy bag

A diaper bag is a saviour for a mother in the initial years of a baby. Its her companion and it will have all the stuffs of baby in it. I am a person who doesn’t like to carry bags. But after the birth of Baby A the scenario is totally changed. My mom used to worry a lot as during my early childhood days I wouldn’t move out of the home without a sling bag itseems and now she can see me (OLD ME) and she is happy to cherish my old memories. :p

Back in India either my mom or my sister or my brother (Suhaib does a perfect job :p)used to pack my diaper bag in the initial days so I had a peaceful environment but back in my home when we went out for Outings I had many facepalm situations for missing out simple but very necessary stuff. Then I understood arranging a diaper bag is an art and organising them neatly is also an art. So from then On I learnt to organise my diaper bag perfectly.

Now let’s have a look out of the essentials available in my diaper bag cum hand bag.:p

  • MODERN CLOTH DIAPERS [ One for every three hours +2 extra for emergency]
  • Wetbags/Superbags- 2 [One to carry soiled diapers and one to carry fresh ones]
  • Cloth wipes
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Diaper Rash Cream
  • Changing Pad/Blanket
  • Teethers
  • Burp cloth
  • Hand Kerchief for baby
  • Water bottle
  • Sippy cup with a spoon
  • Blanket
  • Finger food
  • A bottle with a juice[For mommy]
  • Extra pair clothes for both Baby and mommy [Emergency can happen any time]
  • Favourite Toys
  • Bib
  • Zip lock bags to store stuffs
  • Socks
  • Hat
  • Ring Sling/Carrier

I came up with this list because in the initial days I took time to get organised with the packing of a diaper bag. So I felt there would be a need for new mommies in organising a diaper bag.
