15 Essential Items for Your Diaper Bag

When I had my first baby, whenever I ran errands with her in tow, I would fill my diaper bag to the brim. I wasn’t sure what I would need for her, so I brought everything I could so I would always be prepared.

No mom wants to be without the supplies to make her baby more comfortable when she’s out. Here is a list of 15 essential items to bring with you when you leave home:

1. Diapers

2. Baby wipes

3. Diaper cream

4. A changing pad

5. Formula or a bottle of milk

6. Insulated bottle tote

7. Baby food

8. A bib and burp cloth

9. An extra outfit

10. Plastic bags for disposal

11. Breast-feeding cover

12. Hand sanitizer

13. Pacifier

14. A few toys

15. Sunscreen

When you return home from an outing, make sure to replace your bag with new supplies. If your bag gets a little too heavy for you to carry around along with your baby, make sure to leave some essentials in your car.
