You’ll want to select a diaper bag that suits your needs and your style. Whether your bag is trendy or basic, it has to hold baby’s gear and your own—from diapers and wipes to your cell phone and keys. You may choose something streamlined or a bag with plenty of compartments and pockets to store bottles, diaper ointment, and even a changing pad.
They’re something you and baby can’t leave home without! Stock your bag with five to seven cloth or disposable diapers, even if you don’t think you’ll need them all. You never know when you might get stuck in traffic or left waiting at the pediatrician’s office.
Not only are wipes essential for wiping messy baby bottoms, they’re also great for cleaning hands, faces, and even blotting stains and spills. Travel packs come in handy dispensers that fit nicely into bags. If you don't have a travel pack, you can preserve the wipes' moisture in a plastic sandwich-type bag.
You never know when your little one’s bottom will become irritated and tender. Diaper rash can hit at any moment. Carry a small tube of cream or ointment to ease baby’s discomfort.
Don’t get caught without a clean place to change your baby’s diaper—especially if you’re on the road with no changing table available. Many diaper bags come with coordinating pads.
Carry the phone number of your baby’s physician with you and your child's insurance card too.
Bring with you medications for fevers or colds, prescription medications if you’ll need them, and small bandages.
