What's In My Diaper Bag

OK, so technically this isn’t a diaper bag. I retired my diaper bag long ago once I realized the magic of compartmentalizing and was able to return to my purse…albeit a much larger purse, but a purse nonetheless. I remember those early days when I had to tow along so many things when heading out for the day, so it’s nice to keep things more minimal with a toddler. Check out the contents of my diaper bag – the toddler essentials!

What's In My Diaper Bag

What’s inside…

*A change of clothes – You can find that Mickey shirt here. It’s my favorite and I’m getting sad Fern has just about outgrown it.

*Mama & toddler sunglasses – Because toddlers get grumpy when the sun is in their eyes

*Huggies Diapers + Wipes - We’re brand loyalists

*A clutch – To store Mama’s essentials like that lipstick and debit/credit cards. Helps keep all the important items at my fingertips.

*A distraction – Fern is currently obsessed with the compact from her Minnie Mouse Bowtastic Styling Set so it’s perfect for keeping her entertained during errand runs.

*Meal time essentials – I always keep a smock bib, her own water cup and easy food pouches on hand in case we’re out and need to have a last-minute meal on-the-go. It’s also great for when we go out to restaurants that may not be particularly catering to children.
