A well organized diaper bagEveryone knows that a diaper bag is designed to let you take diapers with you when you’re out running errands or visiting friends and relatives with your baby, but a lot more goes into a well-stocked diaper bag than just diapers. It’s important that you take the time to consider what you’re putting into your diaper bag so that you have everything that you need, but there are a few items that you might not normally consider that can be quite beneficial once you pack them. Here are some of the must-haves of your well-stocked diaper bag, so that you can be sure to not find yourself wanting something that you would have easy access to if you were at home.

First comes the essentials, of course; make sure that you have several diapers, a full box of baby wipes, and a changing pad for your baby. You should also make sure that you have baby powder or lotion and hand-sanitizing solution for yourself so that you can clean your hands up after changing your baby even if you aren’t near a sink. Many parents will stop here, thinking that their diaper bag is fully stocked; there are quite a few other things that you can include in your diaper bag to make spending time out with your child much easier.

Keeping a few common household items in your diaper bag such as a small flashlight and a towel can make finding dropped items or cleaning up messes much easier; and won’t take up much room in your diaper bag. If you include a towel make sure that it’s a small one, as that way you won’t be taking up too much room while still having a dry towel that you can use to clean up wet messes or provide extra protection under your changing pad if you have to change your baby on a surface that seems less than clean.

A first aid kit can also be a very important addition to your diaper bag, especially if you can find a small travel version or one that is designed especially for use with small children. Just make sure that any bandages or other first aid kit supplies that you use are replaced at your earliest convenience so that you don’t find yourself running out of basic first aid supplies if you need them. Carrying a first aid kit in a case means that your first aid supplies will be much less likely to become damaged than they would if you just had a box of bandages or loose supplies kept in a plastic bag in your diaper bag.

Other options for your diaper bag include small stuffed animals that you can give to your child if they’re excessively fussy, a bottle of water in case you or your baby need a little bit of extra hydration, and extra pacifiers or other common baby supplies that might get lost while you’re away from home so that you aren’t left without a backup. If you have a large diaper bag you can also include a full change of clothes for your child, in case they end up making a large mess and you don’t want them to have to wear dirty clothes until you can get them back home.

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!
