What's In Your Diaper Bag? - Lauren and Austin

Few moms I know fit more in to their day than today's featured mommy. With baby groups in two cities, aquafit for her and baby, plus an active hobby of dog obedience/ training, it's a wonder she sleeps at all! She's proof that you can fit way more in to your day than you think, and also that women can do it all! For those days that she's a little run down, she has a comic of a son to keep her laughing. I had to know what this mom on the go packed to keep her munchkin smiling!

What's In Your Diaper Bag?


Baby's Name (and age): 
Austin (9 months)

Most Important Thing in Your Diaper Bag: 

Basic Save: 

Coconut Oil in a small baby food jar as bum cream.

Essential Splurge: 

Good wipe and wipe container... a good diaper bag itself is also worth spending money on... just not too much money.

If you use a lot of wipes, or are constantly on the go, investing in a pretty and practical wipe dispenser is worth it. Ones like these pictured are sometimes offered as a bonus when you buy in bulk, but you can pick up soft or hard sided, refillable wipe containers for under $10. You'll still be ahead of buying disposable dispensers in the long run.

Best Preparedness Advice: 

Your diaper bag should have it's own supply of cream, wipes, bags, etc, so you aren't constantly pulling things out and putting them back. Also, establish a good restocking routine to ensure you never leave home without a good supply. Everything needs a place in the bag so it's easy to see what needs to be restocked.

Final Words of Wisdom...

Do what you can to pack your bag to help you when your out. ex) I use cloth diapers. I put disposable inserts in the diaper, then place them in the bag. when I'm out doing a diaper change, I don't have to worry about finding the disposable inserts and applying them to the diaper before putting it on my son.
