What's In Your Diaper Bag? - Eve and Isaac

For some, pregnancy comes easily.  Others, like myself, have had a longer road to motherhood.  Today's feature falls in to the latter category, but all the sweeter the reward! The first thing women say when they see this knock out is "I love his hair!"  And Isaac's charms don't stop with his luscious, full head of blond locks. His smile will catch you from across a room. Not even 5 months old and already a lady killer! He's been seen all around town, from his busy social circle to long hikes with mommy all over south-western Ontario. With parents that take full advantage of the outdoors (and, of course, that winning grin), we asked...

What's In Your Diaper Bag?

Name: Eve

Baby's Name (and age): Isaac (5 months)

Most Important Thing in Your Diaper Bag: My wallet. If I forget anything I can at least buy more of it if I am away from home.

Basic Save: Wipes. Buy a reusable container and refill it with wipes you can buy in bulk.

Essential Splurge: 
  • Battery Pack - if my phone dies while I'm out I can recharge it in minutes. (Photo here taken from
  • Good Diapers! - nothing worse than a diaper that doesn't properly fit your baby's shape and size. 
Which is so true!  Whether you cloth diaper or use disposables, what mother hasn't dealt with that so dreaded "poo-splosion". And on the same lines...

Best Preparedness Advice: S#$! happens, prepare for it!

Amen, sista'!  And what a well stocked diaper bag it is:
