These type of blog posts are one of my favourites to read.
So here I go, I would like to share with you today what’s in my diaper bag.
Let’s start with the bag.
It’s actually not a diaper bag. After three children and many diaper bags I think a backpack is the wisest idea. It’s a Betty Barclay backpack. I found it at TKMaxx for 20% off. You can easily attach it to the pushchair when you are on the move by its straps or using a mummy clip and keep it on your back while you play with your little ones at the park. This way you don’t have to worry about anyone stealing it from the pushchair (it can happen, trust me) and it’s out of your way, nothing slides of your shoulder. It’s great for travelling as well!
T-shirt: a shop in Romania
Shoes: Birkenstock ( Arizona in black)- the most comfortable shoe/sandals ever…I have the tan lines to prove it! 🙂
Another thing when choosing a diaper bag that I have learnt is,..you are the one caring the bag, so it should suit you and not the baby. If you or your husband like wearing a bright pink polka dots puffy bag…more power to you! Rock it, if not, go with something that you enjoy and it’s durable…it will be spit on, stepped on and so on…I will stop at that, it such a nice bag that it hurts writing all the things it’s been trough. 🙂
This is what I carry with me most of the time. If it’s a Sunday I will add a small bag with crayons and two note pads for my girls to have in church.
A small nappy bag that it’s water Prof with wipes, I use WaterWipes, they are really good and with no nasty chemicals,
diapers, just pampers, we started out with Nadine diapers but every night the diaper would leak so we went for Pampers,
Sudocream to prevent and treat any diaper rash, a change of spare clothes and socks.
Water bottle, spoon , a pot of snack or food ( depends were we go and for how long)
Sofie the giraffe, a fun book that Alex just got as a present for his birthday.
Hand Sanitiser, a Neutogena travel size hand cream , fun plasters for the girls, a pen and note pad because I am always making lists. My Fossil wallet, and my makeup bag because I do my minimal make-up on the go.
I don’t carry any other bag with me, this is it, it doubles at as a purse and diaper bag. When I need to change my little one I just get the small nappy bag out and I have everything in without searching trough the bag for what I need.
Do you have any tips or a product that you find useful for your diaper bag?
