Diaper Bag Must Haves for Moms of Two

I was (and still can be) an over thinker + over packer. As a mom, we have to make sure we have to have absolutely everything, am I right?

I learned with Alexander that the best thing I could do was just make sure I had the essential. Then, when we found out we were expecting again, I transitioned to a backpack that would let me carry everything I needed and I used my lovely Vera Bradley for storage in the car [ ya know.. for just in case purposes ]. 

Depending on what my day looks like I keep enough to be gone for the day. I used to over pack and the bag would be heavier than I am and would tip the stroller over. Now, with two kids - I need something easy, something fast, something simple. 

For Lucas, currently 2 months. 
4-5 diapers
a change of clothes
nursing cover
a burp cloth
diaper ointment [ as needed ]

For Alexander, currently 2 years. 
2 diapers
an outfit change
a sippy cup 
snacks [in pouches/ individually wrapped]

For Mom + Dad
[because we can be just as needy, ;)]
hand sanitizer
a shirt (for mom because breastfeeding)

Each "section" has their own labeled, zip loc bag or "wet bag" [Check out Itzy Ritzy - super cute + discreet, you can use them for snacks + everything -- find them here!] 

I also stick in a grocery bag or two because blow outs exist + containing them is essential. 

Whenever I leave, I make sure I have my keys (thanks to Thirty One) & my wallet. One less bag, one less thing to remember. 

For the longer days, I make sure my bigger bag has at least a set of each of the above JUST in case. I also keep spare diapers for both kiddos in a container in the trunk of my car because there is always the possibility they will blow through the diapers like a leaking pipe soaking a kitchen towel.

What do you keep in your diaper bag?

  1. Ahh, love it! I always keeps snacks, something to clean up messes with, hand sanitizer, and diapers, obviously.

  2. Think about it. You do not even have to get out of bed. No more nighttime trips. You just poop and pee whenever you want to do so. Vežimėlis Skėtukas
