Diaper bag essentials


I think a diaper bag should always be packed by the door. It's your extra stuff, but it doesn't have to be your entire nursery every time you go out of the house. I think diapers, obviously, two or three, depending on how long you are going to be out of the house; wipes, a snack, a bottle, a bottle of water in case you are using formula, formula or an extra bottle of breast milk. Most importantly, a change of clothes. You will be out, at some point, with a baby and they will make a mess of themselves. At least one change of clothes, maybe two. I would suggest a little medicine pouch with Tylenol or, maybe, Origel for when they are teething.
