Elvis Lives Diaper BagMany parents see the diaper bag as a way to carry the essentials with them in case their baby needs to be changed while out and about, but many diaper bags can hold much more than just diapers, hand sanitizer, and wipes. For those who keep their diaper bag well-stocked, however, the diaper bag can be considered a valuable resource that has everything that you might need should unexpected situations arise. Here are just a few of the things that you can put into your diaper bag in addition to the essentials so that you’ll never be without the things that you need right when you need them.

One of the more advantageous things that you can keep in your diaper bag is a small towel. While you’ve already got baby wipes in your diaper bag, a towel can do many things that your standard baby wipes can’t. In addition to being able to clean up dirty hands and faces, the main advantage of having a small towel is that you can use it to effectively to clean up wet messes should a “sippy-cup” spill or your baby get splashed with water. Your towel will definitely come in handy should you and your baby get caught out in the rain.

Another item to keep in your diaper bag that can be very useful is a small flashlight, especially if it is of the LED variety. LED flashlights don’t use much battery power and can keep producing light for much longer than a standard flashlight, and they’re also generally very lightweight and don’t take up much room in your diaper bag. Having a flashlight handy can be a major advantage when things are dropped while loading or unloading the car or if your child manages to lose favorite toys behind or under furniture.

Carrying a small first aid kit can also be a great addition to your diaper bag, since it will ensure that you have bandages and other first aid essentials at hand should your child tumble and scrape a knee or scuff a hand. Many travel first aid kits fit perfectly into a diaper bag, and can provide you with a number of useful supplies ranging from burn cream and antibiotics to medical tape and self-adhesive bandages. If possible, try to find an age-appropriate first aid kit and make sure that you restock it soon after using items from it so that you don’t end up lacking bandages or other first aid items when you need them.

Taking extra time to consider small items such as these which can easily fit into your diaper bag can help you to be prepared for a number of different situations that may arise. While not everything that you put into your diaper bag will be used every day, should an occasion arise where you have a need for some extra item; then you’ll be glad that you took the time to stock your diaper bag with more than just diapers and a changing pad.

Do you agree or disagree?  Perhaps, I missed something?  Either way, I would just love to hear what your thoughts are on this topic… just let me know your alive!
