Basically …

Certain situations will call for different supplies and not all of the things listed above will be used – or needed – everyday. However, would you rather be over-packed and prepared when an emergency arises, or under-packed and always scrambling to find alternative solutions.

My experience …

A lot of people have poked fun at the amount of stuff I carry around with me, but I cannot explain how many times that stuff has come in handy, even if it was not used for it’s intended purpose. Times when I have forgotten my diaper bag, and I had to go buy things in a pinch, is when I realized just how important it was.

Diaper Bag Tips …

  • Things like lotions and sun cream will always find a way to ruin your day, and the inside of your diaper bag. Stop this from happening by putting this type of stuff in small Ziplock baggies.
  • Use smaller pouches (make-up bags work great too) to organize things by type.
  • When you use the rest of something put a post-it note on the strap so you’ll remember to restock it later.
  • Keep a couple of different outfits for all occasions. Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have a few warmer clothes packed because you never know when it might be cold in a store.
