Prior to having Kiara, I always wondered why parents were lugging around this huge bag on top of having to push a stroller with a baby. I thought, "Seriously? Aren't you carrying just a little too much?" Boy was I wrong! Now that I have a child, I can totally relate! I always pack spares now. I learned my lesson! You never know when your child might dirty themselves. And trust me, it always happens!
So here's how my diaper bag looks. (Thank you mum for giving it to me!) It's from Kipling. It also comes with a changing pad too! It's funny because my step dad actually bought that bag for my mum without realizing that it was a diaper bag. She likes big chunky bags that's why!
The inner organizer piece that holds everything in place can be taken out, but I like that it has extra pockets to store other things like extra clothes, burp cloths, pacifier and bottle nipple wipes etc. The side pockets are the perfect size to put in our nappy cream as well as the milk powder storage container! Love it! Now that Kiara takes solids, I also carry her food in a container which fits perfectly in it too.
Here's my list of items I have in my diaper bag:
- 6 pieces of nappies
- Huggies Wet Wipes
- 2 bottles (1 for Milk, 1 for Juice) + Bottel warmer holder
- 4 extra pairs of onesies
- Pacifier & Nipple wipes
- Nappy Cream
- Disinfectant spray
- Yu Yee Oil (Cap Limau) or Minyak Telon in Lavender (This works wonders for wind! I always put it on her tummy!)
- Toys! Lots of Toys!
