Lil Tip: Diaper Bag Must Haves

Sometimes I wish I had a tattoo of the list of the things I need on my hand. Countless times, I've left in a mad rush and left my keys in the house or my daughter's favorite toy in her crib.

Last week, we learned what Heidi Klum carries in her diaper bag. Here is a list of things that I think every mom should always have in hers:

  • Something to drink – milk, water, formula, breastmilk, juice, etc.
  • Food or snacks.
  • Duh — diapers and wipes.
  • An extra bottle or cup in case your only one falls.
  • Something to entertain baby – a book, toy, rattle, etc.
  • Your keys, phone, and wallet (or cash) in case of emergencies.
  • A bib, an extra change of clothes and a hat.
  • A kit with band–aids, nail clippers and sunscreen.

If you can try to keep all (or most) of these items in your diaper bag, you'll be on top of the game.

I do that too, mbrown. Stuff like extra diapers, wipes, change of clothes, etc stay in the car at all times anyway, rather than the diaper bag. The diaper bag is for immediate needs.

Don't forget a blanket in case your little one gets chilly!

So your back doesn't go carrying all this stuff. What I did was put and extra tote in my car. It has a first aid kit, a change of clothes for everyone in the family, (You never know) and a couple toys and books.

I love breastfeeding for many reasons, but this is one of the big ones. Not having to worry about a bottle is great. It's so much more convenient to whip out the boob.

If you're breastfeeding and comfortable with nursing in public, there's really no need to carry the drink part in the diaper bag. :)
