16 Products for Your Baby’s Diaper Bag

As a postpartum doula, I’ve helped a lot of moms put together their diaper bag. I let them know what they need and don’t need when they’re on the go with baby. You don’t need to pack everything and the kitchen sink in your bag–your shoulders and back will hate you–but you also don’t want to forget something that will make your life easier. There are tons of lists out there that you can find, but I’m sharing my knowledge as an experienced postpartum doula on what you really need when you are out of the house with your baby. Here’s what I’m packing as I’m preparing for my baby boy in my diaper bag.

1. A Diaper Bag

Obviously . . . Pick a bag or an insert that you think will be good for you and your baby. I personally love the ToteSavvy because I can continue to wear my purses that I love and easily transform them into a diaper bag. Also, it’s nice that I just have to lift out the insert full of my baby’s items and can easily and quickly transform another purse into my diaper bag. I’m then not just limited to one bag and one look!

2. Changing Pad

Diaper changes happen even when you’re on the go. You won’t always be able to find a changing table (unfortunately) and even if you do, it’s nice to have a spot you know is clean to place your baby. That’s why having a changing pad is great to have. Luckily a changing pad is folded up and included in the center of the ToteSavvy so I didn’t have to worry about purchasing one.

3. Diapers

I mean, it is called a diaper bag after all . . . You need to have diapers with you because babies are always needing a new diaper when you least expect it. Isn’t that always how it works? It’s better to be prepared. I usually recommend having 5 or 6 on hand. This also varies depending on how long you will be out with baby.

4. Wipes

Those cute tushies don’t wipe themselves! In my bag, I don’t just pack the travel size wipes, I bring the big 60 count of baby wipes with me. They are great for cleaning spit ups, and wiping baby’s face, sticky hands and dirty bum. You don’t have to have a large pack with you, but I know I would forget to refill and would be stuck somewhere low on wipes if I didn’t pack a larger stash.

5. Diaper Cream & Sunscreen

We must protect our baby’s delicate skin. Preventing diaper rash and irritation is important and that’s why I love the all-purpose balm from Honest. It’s also great for cuts and scratches. The Honest sunscreen is great too if you know you are going to be out in the hot sun. I make sure that I choose the safest products for baby.

6. Wet Bag

Wet bags aren’t just for moms that are cloth diapering. Honestly, wet bags are great to have for multiple purposes. For example, if you are in a place where you can’t throw out a dirty diaper (like at a doctor’s office) or if your kid maybe gets super messy and his clothes get dirty–e.g. throwing up, diaper blow out, wet his pants, playing with something dirty, etc. You can put that dirty diaper and dirty clothes in the wet bag and it won’t touch the rest of your belongings in your purse. It also can help keep the smells at bay. This is the wet bag that we have from SkipHop. It also has two handy sections to keep wet and dry clothes separated.

7. Hand Sanitizer

Things get messy and sticky when you have a child. I like to keep the germs away and use this spray hand sanitizer to keep me and baby clean. We don’t want baby to get sick! I like this spray because it doesn’t dry out my hands or feel slimy like some other brands do.

8. Swaddle

I love a good swaddle blanket. Aden + Anais have some of my favorite swaddles. They are so light, soft, large enough to fully cover baby in a good swaddle and they are breathable. In addition, their designs are precious! You can use them in many different ways too and that’s why I always like to have one with me in my diaper bag like this one. So great for soothing baby and keeping them comfortable.

9. Pacifier

Babies can get fussy and make a lot of noise. If you’re going somewhere where there will be a lot of people and you need your little one to be calm and quiet, a pacifier is something you gotta have. I have my POP pacifier ready to go! It’s the cleaner pacifier.

10. Boob or Bottle

I plan on breastfeeding my baby so thankfully I’ll always have a boob ready. 😉 But if I do need to pump or supplement and give formula to my son, I will need to bring a bottle with me. I like this glass bottle from Life Factory.

11. Burp Cloth/ Bib

When bottle-feeding or breastfeeding your baby you need to wipe that sweet face off with something during and after their feedings. That’s why I make sure to bring at least one burp cloth/bib with me. This particular one that I have is really helpful to have when burping baby. Spit up happens! More may come up while burping than you may expect too. A bib that I love is the burpy bib from Aden + Anais. They are large, thick yet soft and they even have snaps on them so you can not only use it over the shoulder, but you can also snap it around baby’s neck during bottle feedings or spoon feedings as he gets older.

12. Nursing Pads

Thankfully Bamboobies don’t leak, but if you forget to bring a fresh pair with you, I would have an extra set in your bag. Again, I’m planning on breastfeeding my little one and Bamboobies nursing pads are what I plan on wearing to keep myself comfortable and dry. Also, they are reusable and the softest nursing pads I’ve found. The last thing I want is leakage coming through my shirt! So embarrassing.

13. Breastfeeding Cover

If you feel comfortable breastfeeding anywhere and whipping out your boob, good for you! I’m a bit more modest so I will probably feel more comfortable wearing a nursing cover–especially during the time I’m getting the hang of breastfeeding my son. This breastfeeding cover from Covered Goods is great because not only can you use it as a nursing cover, but you can also use it as a car seat cover as well as a high chair or grocery cart chair cover. I’m a fan and have written about them before here.

14. Extra Outfit

If baby has a blow out or pees through his/her diaper, you will need to have an extra outfit with you. If it’s a longer outing bring two just incase. I love this kimono from Aden + Anais. It’s the perfect thing for my newborn baby. 🙂 So soft, stylish and easy to take on and off. Two thumbs up!

15. Baby Wrap

I am a major baby wearing fan! Keeping that baby close to you and having your hands free is everything as a new parent! For my newborn baby, I have this Active Baby Carrier from Baby K’tan. It’s in the side compartment of my ToteSavvy and ready to go when I need to wear him. Also, I love that it’s small and compact to fit in my bag and that the sash converts into this travel bag to keep everything together.

16. Toy and/or Teether

Your newborn baby won’t necessarily need a toy to play with or a teether to chew on this early in his/her life, but I like to have a few things that can be used as a distraction. Distractions are always good. And these will help! Different textures and sounds are great like this soft toy/rattle from Jelly Cats. This teether from Baby Banana is also awesome! You know that it’s super safe for your little one to teeth on as an infant and has he/she gets older.

When Do You Start Showing in Pregnancy? 🤰⁠
.⁠
Every woman is different when she begins showing in pregnancy. I remember clearly the day I finally saw my beloved baby bump. It was a Monday and I was at work. I saw myself in the bathroom mirror and smiled broadly at my suddenly noticeable bump. Glowing, I rubbed my little tummy as I checked out my new, different-looking profile in the mirror. My office friends had noticed that morning as well and had complimented me and my little bump. Naturally, I took a selfie. I was so excited to see that I was finally showing. I couldn’t stop smiling all day! 😊 {Click 🔗 in bio to continue reading!⁠}⁠

"It doesn't matter if you have a newborn, a toddle "It doesn't matter if you have a newborn, a toddler, or a teenager. These are the things our children need to feel from those around them.

We want to feel secure in our relationships with others. We don't outgrow the need to feel those things. In a crazy world, let your children feel those things. Let them know 'Hey, I see you. I see you're sad or mad. I am here with a hug when you're ready and if you need it. You are safe to feel how you feel and be who you are. You don't have to worry about my love for you.

What Color Eyes Will Your Baby Have? 👁️⁠
.⁠
Expecting parents often wonder what their baby will look like once he's born. 🤔 Will she have light or dark hair? Will she inherit your freckles? What color eyes will your baby have? When I was pregnant with my son, my husband and I had fun wondering these same things. Would he have a round face? Would he have my nose? My husband’s cheeks? The only thing we knew for sure was that he would have deep brown eyes and dark brown hair, just like his mom and dad. Or so we thought.⁠ 😮 {Click 🔗 in bio to continue reading!⁠}⁠

Think diaper changing is straight forward and simple? Not so fast for the cloth diapering mamas. While cloth diapers generally save us quite a bit of cash after that initial investment 💰, it does require a bit of a process, and a good cloth diapering system, to make it less time-consuming.

You Can't Spoil a Baby, Here's Why 👶💕⁠
.⁠
The battle of opinions regarding whether or not you can spoil a baby has been raging for decades, especially among grandparents and those born during the time of little affection. Our children's great-grandparents were most likely raised with the idea that love and affection and responding to a baby's cries will spoil them and make them even fussier. While that idea might seem ludicrous to us, there's a reason such an approach was widely believed. Here's what parenting has looked like over the decades and how present-day science says you cannot spoil a baby. ❤️ {Click 🔗 in bio to continue reading!⁠}⁠

5 Things I Wish I Had Known About Potty Training⁠ 🚽⁠
.⁠
Let’s talk about potty training! It’s one of those monumental milestones we mamas walk through with our toddlers that make them suddenly seem like they went from babies to tiny little humans overnight. And, while it can be an exciting time (and a time to save some serious cash by ditching diapers), it can also come with lots of stress. 🙃 From cleaning up potty accidents for what may seem like days (or even weeks) to wondering if you’ll ever be able to drive further than down the block without having to stop for a potty break 🤦‍♀️, potty training can be daunting.⁠
⁠
But, what many moms agree on is that once it’s done, you kinda forget about all the stress that came along with it. Kinda like pregnancy and giving birth —you just sort of forget about it all until you do it all over again.⁠ 🤪⁠
⁠
Here are five things I wish I had known about potty training before I jumped into it with my then two-and-a-half-year-old daughter. Because, if I had known these things, I think I would have been a bit more laid back about the whole thing! {Click 🔗 in bio to continue reading!⁠}⁠

It is no surprise, then, that fertility treatments are becoming more of a necessity for couples who are faced with infertility and wish to have children.

When I had my first baby, everyone told me to enjoy the newborn stage because it goes fast, and I would miss it. But I was so exhausted and overwhelmed I didn’t believe them. 😴 While I was living through it, it felt like it took forever!⁠
⁠
If you are there now or about to enter this stage, it’s a yummy, delicious, snuggly stage. But for me, it has always been one of the harder ones, every time I go through it. So I see and feel you, mama! It’s physically, emotionally, and mentally exhausting. Hold tight, though, because it doesn’t last forever.⁠

Daddy Chronicles: Breastfeeding 💙⁠ by @chroni Daddy Chronicles: Breastfeeding 💙⁠
by @chroniclesofdaddy⁠
⁠
I've been asked so many questions by men about fatherhood. So I figured I'd drop some knowledge on my fellow Dads and soon-to-be-Dads. Here's what it looks like for the first few weeks or months after your child is born. Yup. If mom breastfeeds they pretty much are tucked like this and at times you'll wonder "what is there for me to do?" Here are my top 5 tips for any Dad after your child is born.⁠
⁠
1️⃣ For night feedings. When mom wakes up in the middle of the night, you get up and ask if she needs any help or water. The truth is most of the time she will say no but just the fact that you offered will go far.⁠
⁠
2️⃣ Ask mom if she can pump and then pick 1 feeding that you will always do. Mom will take on almost everything and will burn herself out if you let her. At times you may have to force her to rest without worrying about the baby. This is an easy way to do that without a fight.⁠
⁠
3️⃣ Don't put a time limit on how long mom breastfeeds the baby. It's not just about feeding your child it's about them bonding as well. I know everyone has a different length of time they will breastfeed and as a Dad, it's hard to fully understand. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT try and rush this process. It's not our place and it's not safe. You will open yourself up to a fight you can't win.⁠
⁠
4️⃣ Be patient. I know as a Dad the first few weeks we are equally excited and yet not as important. Your time will come faster than you know. Babies grow fast and the stronger and bigger they get the more Daddy Time will be coming your way.⁠
⁠
5️⃣ Paternity leave! If you have it TAKE IT. The early stages of a child's life are not just for moms to enjoy. I know as men making the money especially after having a baby it's hard, but trust me. You can always make money but there are no instant replays in life. It doesn't make you more of a man to not take the leave. It's equally as important that you as a Dad get to be a part of the early development of your child. ⁠
If someone needs this info tag them ❤️⁠

Absolutely love these tips from @chroniclesofdaddy. 🙌
7 Postpartum Yoga Poses That Strengthen Your Body 7 Postpartum Yoga Poses That Strengthen Your Body After Baby 🧘‍♀️⁠
.⁠
The postpartum period, or period of recovery that takes place after a mother gives birth, is an important time for mothers to take care of themselves. 🥰 Typically, if you’re less than 6 weeks postpartum you don’t want to put any pressure on your core muscles. Also, your body’s levels of relaxin, the hormone that loosens joints to prepare for childbirth, is elevated for 3-6 months after childbirth, and longer if you are breastfeeding. All this means is: take these postpartum yoga poses slowly and stretch yourself gently. No gymnastics here or pushing beyond what is comfortable.⁠
⁠
Remember, every mama’s body is different, so listen to how you feel and seek advice from a medical professional if you have questions about how and when to begin your personal exercise plan. Note: Try to do the following yoga poses in the order they are listed. {Click 🔗 in bio to see the 7 yoga poses to strengthen your body after baby!⁠}⁠

Potty Training Tips! A step-by-step guide 🚽⁠ Potty Training Tips! A step-by-step guide 🚽⁠
.⁠
1️⃣ Look for signs of readiness:⁠
- Diaper dry for at least 1-2 hours.⁠
- Pulling at their diaper when its wet or soiled.⁠
- Hiding or fidgeting when going pee or poo in diaper.⁠
- Interest in others using the potty.⁠
- Waking up with a dry diaper after naps.⁠
- Telling you when they have gone pee or poo.⁠
⁠
Potty training is much quicker if your child is showing the above signs, but you can start before this.⁠
⁠
2️⃣ What you will need to buy:⁠
- Toilet seat insert to place on your toilet⁠
- Steps⁠
- Underwear (at least 10 pairs)⁠
- Foldable toilet seat (for when you are out of the house)⁠
- Piddle pad (for car journeys)⁠
- Waterproof shoes such as crocs, sliders, etc. (they can be rinsed and dried)⁠
- Not necessary but helpful: flushable wipes⁠
⁠
3️⃣ Getting yourself and your child prepared:⁠
- Talk to your child about using the potty, maybe take them into the bathroom when you go and talk them through the process (e.g. wiping, flushing, and washing hands, etc.)⁠
- Practice pulling pants or shorts up and down.⁠
- Look on YouTube with your child at some potty training stories (e.g. 'I Want My Potty' and 'Pirate Pete's Potty')⁠
- Involve your child in choosing and buying everything you need - choosing character-themed underwear is usually very exciting!⁠
- Sit your child on the potty at every diaper change, first thing in the morning and just before bed to get them used to sitting on the toilet.⁠
- Teach your child the correct vocabulary or signs needed to communicate when they need to go potty.⁠
- Make sure you have plenty of spare clothes.⁠
⁠
4️⃣ Let's get toilet trained:⁠
- Get your child to choose a pair of underwear and put them on.⁠
- Talk to them about using the toilet and communicating when they need to pee or poo. You can sit them on the toilet at this point if you wish.⁠
- Take your child to the toilet every 15/20 minutes. Say "let's go to the potty" rather than asking "do you want to go to the toilet" - if you ask, they are likely to say no! Also, look for signs like moving from side-to-side or hiding. These are normal signs that they might need to go potty.⁠
