How can you use a dapper designer diaper bag? Posted on 06 Jun 22:51
There's nothing that can truly save the day like a designer diaper bag that's well-stocked. However, it can be difficult to determine what you actually need. This is something that depends on exactly how old your child is, as well as how long you'll be gone, where you're going, and how prepared you are.
Here are some of the most basic essentials that you should consider packing in one of these bags.
Generally, you will want to pack one diaper for each hour that you'll be out, as well as a few extra just to be on the safe side.
If you won't be gone for very long, you will be able to get away with putting around ten of these in a baggie. These are great for both diaper changes and wiping off dirty hands and sticky surfaces. Oh and there are some great alternatives to ziplock bags, check them out here.
This is an important tool for when you don't have the time to wash or clean your hands, especially after changing a baby's diaper.
There are some diaper bags that come with a reusable changing pad, unless you prefer to purchase a separate one.
These are perfect for storing objects such as soiled clothes, baby blankets, and diapers. It's important to ensure that your child can't get to them since bags like these pose a risk of suffocation.
Bottles of Formula/Breast Milk
These are generally for older babies and toddlers. Depending on the child's age, this typically includes baby food and a spoon or finger foods. Don't forget to include bibs as well.
Sippy Cup of Juice, Milk, or Water
Sippy cups seem like such an easy purchase right? Not so. Some sippy cups can be unsafe as mentioned here. Not to go off on a different tangient, but hey we're here to look out for you and not just show off our dapperbag :)
This can be used to not only cover your baby, but it can also be used as a changing pad, bib, nursing cover, etc.
This is always important in the event your child spills or spits up on the clothing that they are currently wearing.
Pacifier/Other Comfort Item
There are also extra items that you should consider bringing as well, which include the following:
- Diaper Rash Cream
- Nail Clippers
This is a great tool to use if you are planning to breastfeed your baby in public and wish to have more privacy.
These are tools that are used by nursing mothers to absorb breast milk leaks.
This is a tool designed to help you easily carry your baby.
Toys/Board Books/Coloring Pages with Crayons
