☑️ Diapers One for each hour you’ll be out, plus a few extra — in case of any extreme cases aka blow outs!
☑️ Wipes I use Huggies’ Clutch n Clean. You can easily refill it with wipes you already have at hand— wipes are perfect not only for changing diapers, but also for sticky hands and dirty surfaces
☑️ Hand Sanitizer For cleaning your hands when there’s no time nor place to wash them.
☑️ Changing Pad Many diaper bags, such as SkipHop, come with a reusable changing pad or you can buy one separately — some parents like the disposable ones for traveling
☑️ Bibs Cloth bib you can use it to cover your baby or as a changing pad, nursing cover, bib, shade, or burp cloth and OxoTot ’s Roll Up Bib
☑️ Change of Clothes You never know when spit-up, drool, spills, or poop explosions will happen — don’t be caught unprepared!
☑️ Bottle Whether it is formula or expressed breast milk if you’re bottle-feeding — we’ve used Lasinoh’s bottle ever our pediatrician recommend it till this day
☑️ Formula We use Enmafil and store it in SkipHop ’s Grab & Go Baby Storage Tower — I chose this container because I feel like it takes up less space and is also multifunctional for snacks
☑️ Snacks For both you and your baby. Depending on the age of your child and your method of feeding, this could be a jar of Earth’s Best and a spoon, or finger foods such as Cheerios or teething biscuits — lately we’ve really been into LittleNutWorld ’s squeezable nut butter pouches
☑️ Pacifier (if your child uses one) or other comfort item
☑️ Emergency Information Make sure you have the phone numbers of your child’s pediatrician programmed in your cell and health insurance cards in your wallet — you never know when an emergency may occur and it is better to be safe than sorry!
◻️ Sippy Cup for Water / Juice
◻️ Ziplock Bags For storing soiled diapers when you don’t have anywhere to trash it, to keep clothes from getting spilt on, to store snacks for your little one
☑️ Diaper Rash Cream Sample sizes work best and take up less space — you can also repurpose a small container
☑️ Nail Clippers You never know when your little one will doze off and give you the perfect opportunity to clip those tiny nails
☑️ Camera GoPro, professional camera, cellphone — moments worthy of capturing can happen anywhere!
☑️ First-Aid Kit Include adhesive bandage strips, Neosporin, pain reliever, and other first-aid supplies.
◻️ Nursing Cover For breastfeeding or pumping in public; the fabric drapes cover your chest and gives more privacy than the basic blanket-over-the-shoulder — they can also be used to cover infant carseat, shopping carts, high chairs and more
◻️ Breast Pads for Nursing Mommy Slip these in your bra to absorb breast milk leaks
◻️ Sling / Wrap Even if you’re heading out with a stroller, you might prefer to park it and transfer your baby into a carrier if you’re headed someplace crowded
◻️ Toys, Books, Crayon & Coloring Pages Choose toys based on where you are going and your child’s age. A toddler going to a restaurant often requires a lot more entertaining and distractions, while a 6-month-old may be happy with a rattle
