Are you a new parent or soon-to-be parent? One essential item you'll need is a diaper bag. But what should you pack in it? We've got you covered with our diaper bag checklist to ensure you have everything you need for a successful outing with your little one.
Stylish Diaper Bag & ToteSavvy Bag Organizer
If you're new to ToteSavvy, let me introduce you to a life-changing product--the ToteSavvy Bag Organizer
. When a traditional diaper bag or diaper bag backpack isn't your style, a ToteSavvy Bag Organizer can transform any handbag or tote into a stylish and functional diaper bag.
Shown in this post is our Deluxe Bag Organizer
with a double-wide cooler pocket. We also offer our ToteSavvy Original
and the ToteSavvy Mini
. All are amazing options for organizing your diaper bag--it just depends on the functionality you need and sizing of your bag.
Our most requested bag & organizer combination to use for a diaper bag is the ToteSavvy Deluxe and the Marc Jacobs The Tote Bag
. It has been a viral
bag combo, and we get so excited knowing you love
it as much as we do!
It goes without saying that diapers are a must-have in your diaper bag. Pack enough diapers to last for the duration of your outing, plus a few extras, just in case. Remember, it's better to be over-prepared than under-prepared!
Wipes are a lifesaver when it comes to cleaning up messes. Make sure to pack a travel-sized pack of wipes in your diaper bag. They're perfect for quick diaper changes or wiping sticky hands and faces.
Don't forget to include a portable changing pad in your diaper bag--the amazing thing is, all ToteSavvy Bag Organizers come with a changing pad! This handy item provides a clean surface for diaper changes, no matter where you are.
Diaper Rash Cream
Diaper rash can be uncomfortable for your little one. Be prepared by packing a small tube of diaper rash cream in your bag. It will provide instant relief and help prevent further irritation.
For after those on-the-go diaper changes you'll want a little hand sanitizer. Grab your favorite and be sure it's always in your bag!
We're suckers for cute slim tissue packs, but boy do they come in handy. Whether your little one has a runny nose, you need to wipe away their tears, or you need a tissue yourself, a small pack always comes in handy.
Teethers & Paci Clips
Teethers and pacifiers can be a lifesaver when your baby needs soothing. Pack a couple of pacifiers on a paci clip and a teether or two in a Small Clear Pouch
to keep them clean in your diaper bag and you'll have a secret weapon packed away when your little one needs calming while on-the-go.
Accidents happen, and it's always a good idea to have a change of clothes on hand. Pack a spare outfit for your baby, including a onesie, pants, socks, and a hat. You'll thank yourself later! We love these
onesies from Goumi!
Whether you're swaddling your little one or you need a light-weight blanket, we love Harp Angel
There's nothing worse than having a soaked through outfit or oh, gosh, a blow out filled onesie and having no where to put it while you're out. A wet bag comes in handy with those stinky outfits or even a swimsuit if you're headed to the pool or beach. Simply throw the wet/soiled clothes in the wet bag, and the wet bag will protect everything else from getting dirty/wet until you get home!
Bottles & Formula
If you're bottle-feeding your baby, don't forget to pack bottles and formula/breastmilk in your diaper bag. The ToteSavvy Deluxe has a double-wide cooler pocket that works wonders when transporting formula or breastmilk. We suggest popping in a small ice pack to keep your formula or breastmilk chilled.
If your baby has started eating solid foods, pack some age-appropriate snacks in your diaper bag. This way, you'll always have a healthy option on hand when hunger strikes. Don't forget about a drink and a snack for yourself, too!
First Aid Kit & Pill Container
No matter how short the outing, an accident can always happen. Keep a travel first aid kit filled with band aids and first aid cream and pill container with extra medicines for yourself in your diaper bag.
Key Fob Cover & Card Holder
A key fob cover isn't an essential, but it sure does make your keys cute! What is an essential though is a card holder. Slim down your wallet and utilize a stylish card holder. It clips perfectly to the key clasp on a ToteSavvy Bag Organizer so there's no searching for your keys at the bottom of your bag. If you find yourself heading out without your little one, you can grab your keys and card holder and head out the door!
