What you need in your diaper bag changes as your baby grows, here’s a look inside my diaper bag when August was a newborn.
- 10 Diapers
- Package of wipes
- Diaper changing mat
- Mylicon Gas Relief drops
- Gripe Water
- First aid kit: nail clippers, bandaids, thermometer, and Tylenol for mom
- A set of clean clothes and a pair of socks
- Burp cloth
- Nursing scarf
- 2 Pacifiers
- Mom Bag
- Panty liners
- Nursing pads
Just as important as whats in it is how you pack it!
My diaper bag has a side pocket for wipes which make it convenient to grab for changes or spills. I then layer my diapers at the bottom and place the changing mat near the front of my bag as the back has an opening to make diaper access easy.
Next I layer the first aid kit, burp cloth, blanket and nursing scarf in the main portion. I use the surrounding pockets to organize the clothes, pacifiers, medicine, and mom stuff a.k.a. panty liners, lanolin, and nursing pads.
Finally, the lovey and my mom bag go on top fir easy access and we are ready for whatever the day might bring!
What is in your diaper bag must-have for your newborn?
