What's in my diaper bag?

March 11, 2019


Hi friends! Baby Mia is two months old and I finally feel like I have my life back in order. It took some time to adjust to being a mom of three and of course recovering from the c-section but all is well now. I can't lie and say it hasn't been tough, I had forgotten that sleeping 5-6 hours a day was actually a lot. The first couple of weeks we were lucky if we got 3 hours of sleep. Thankfully Mia is finally on a good sleeping schedule. 

I have gotten quite a couple of  DM's on what I keep in my diaper bag and how my breastfeeding journey is going (That's a whole other topic) so today I am sharing with you my diaper bag essentials.   We have a total of 4 diaper bags that we use ( I know, I know, I'm crazy )but I'll share more on that in another post. For now let's talk about what I find helpful to have and the diaper bag you see here.  


In this post I am using my Fawn Design bag. This specific bag was designed with womanhood in mind. It's functional and stylish for any use. This design is The Original (Black)
  1. Diapers -I always carry 5 diapers. You never know how long you might be out for so it's best to have enough. I love Pampers and Luvs. 
  2. Baby Wipes -I go through these like water. Not only do I use them for the baby but my boys use them as well, wether it's to wipe their hands, mouth, or clean up a spill in the car. My love the Up & Up brand from target and the pampers wipes as well. 
  3. Outfit Change - This is a must! Accidents happen and you should always have an outfit change for when they do. I usually keep a onesie in my bag. Mia is two months and so far we've had to accidents. Once I get back home the first thing I do is put another onesie in my bag so I don't forget. 
  4. Bibs or Burp Cloths - I like to carry one of each. My favorite bibs are from Copper Pearl.
  5. Baby Bottles/Formula - I am currently breastfeeding but since Mia's last check up her pediatrician suggested I give her formula as well because she wasn't gaining weight like they were hoping she would. I carry a baby bottle with water already in it and the formula dispenser.  Some of my favorite bottles are Playtex, Dr. Brown's, and Tommee Tippee
  6. Swaddle Blanket - I always make sure I have a blanket on hand. My absolute favorite are from Bebe Au Lait.
  7. Pacifier - I love the Pop Pacifier.
  8. Milksnob Cover - I have this over my carseat at all times. It works as a carseat cover, nursing cover etc. I talked about this product in my Baby Registry Must Haves post. 
  9. Thermometer - This is another product I recommended on my Registry post. I like to keep in my diaper bag just incase I'm out and about and any of my kids starts feeling warm, I can start tracking their temperature. The Kinsa Quickcare is my favorite.

A couple other items that I like to have on hand for my boys plus my stuff include: 
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Tissues
  • Chapstick/Lipstick
  • Wallet
  • Nursing pads (because I am currently nursing)
  • Panty liner (you know, postpartum stuff Lol) 
I also keep a small storage bin in my car that holds things I will mostly use while I'm out but don't need to carry in the diaper bag.

  6. This post can be very useful for every new mom who doesn't know what to bring with her when she goes out with her baby. Your baby wrap looks very high quality.

  12. Okay, I'm dating myself now, but diaper bags have come a long way since I've had my kids! This one is something I would probably use for myself - great pictures!

  13. If you have it even partially together in just two months, you're amazing. That's no easy task! You've got this mommy thing down!

  14. When your a new parent you literally carry everything but the kitchen sink and it can be a night mare but live the design of your bag.

  15. My kids were too chubby to be swaddled. Cute diaper bag, great idea.

  16. My baby is turning 6 months old and everything still feels chaotic, so you go girl because it's just been 2 months and you feel like your life is in order. :)

    Except for the baby bottle (I breastfeed) and swaddle blanket, I have the same things in my diaper bag. I cannot live without wipes. :P
