What to Pack – Diaper Bag Edition

Posted on

The Diaper Bag.  The ultimate “must have” mom accessory.  But what to pack?  We’ve included the essentials along with some of our favorite products.  From a diaper perspective, experts say to pack one for every hour you are out and about and throw in a few extra for good measure.  We start with a super chic, Kate Spade bag that is extra roomy and comes with a changing pad.  We’ve filled it with entertainment options, snacks, a change of clothes or two, a shirt for mom (just in case) and of course, the essentials.  You’ll find a complete packing list below.  What did we forget?  What is your diaper bag must have?

    Hey Linds, I also carry the American Red Cross mini first aid kit! It’s small, has the essentials, and weighs next to nothing! Inexpensive at target! Oh, and infant Tylenol! You never know :)
