Diaper bag essentials

Your diaper bag is going to be as much a part of you as your fingers and toes once you have a baby, so it’s important to make sure that your bag is stocked with everything you and Baby need.

The must-haves

  • Diapers, and plenty of them.
  • Changing pad, because you never know when it’s time.
  • Wipes, so you’ll be ready to clean Baby’s butt, because babies’ butts get dirty quite often.
  • Extra clothes and a blanket in case they make a mess, or needs to take an impromptu nap.
  • Hand sanitizer, because you never know where the nearest sink is.
  • Sunscreen, so that they doesn’t get a sunburn.
  • Plastic bags for storage.

The nice-to-haves

  • Snacks, in case you or Baby get hungry.
  • Toys and games, just to keep them entertained.
  • Diaper cream, to keep them cozy and clean.

The bottom line

Depending on you and Baby, you might want to consider packing even more in the bag, like nail clippers or vitamins. Just make sure that you have everything they might need in a pinch!

And speaking of packing bags, is your delivery bag ready for the big day?
