what on earth goes in here

the diaper bag y’all.  what really needs to be in it?  i mean i can be 132% certain i’m going to have an assortment of junk that i promise myself i’ll need and it’ll just be a huge waste of money and the never enough amount of space…none of you did this, right?

all the research  pinterest articles say i need the usual diapers, wipes, a changing pad, a few changes of clothes, hand sanitizer, burp cloths, plastic bags, + nursing covers.  these things all make sense to me, but what else is super important that all the list don’t tell me about?

we’ve ordered a few diaper bags to test out, fill up, carry around while toting an almost 4 year old, you know hardcore test drive.  what features did you want when choosing a bag?  what number of pockets is ideal?  here are a few of our likes…i like the idea of a backpack, richard not so much.

    I am getting a new diaper bag this time around that has lots of outside pockets, zipper pockets on the inside, and will find an organizer for inside as well. Beware of anything that can become a bottomless pit! I would never be able to find anything I needed unless it was organized into tiny bags inside the big bag. Something with a zipper top and nothing so nice on the outside that you will be upset when you spill breastmilk all over it or you end up having to set it down in a puddle in a parking lot because you’re frantically trying to get the baby in the car on a rainy day!

    The basics are really all that are necessary. Otherwise, you’re gonna be walking around with you’re 3 kiddies, plus a big ole huge bag that’s bulging with unnecessary crap that never gets used. Let’s be honest though, as a first time mama, I literally had everything in the bag for Addisen. I learned my lesson quick and took a lot out. Just too heavy! Now, I do like a good size bag because I no longer carry a purse, so I just throw my wallet/ phone in there! Plus, I also carry an extra set of clothes/panties for Addisen. Diapers, wipes, hand sanitizer, plastic bags to dispose of dirty diapers {and even dirty outfits while you’re out}, disposable changing pads were nice, diaper rash cream, nursing pads if you plan to do so, several outfits for the baby, bibs once teeththing/eating cereal, gas medicine just in case and a booger sucker {because I don’t know the technical term😝} were all my must haves! Hope that helps!

I also liked bags that had outside pockets to hold bottles/cups. Just made them more easily accessible when your baby is screaming to eat. Hope that helps!
