Diaper Bag Checklist

Of course you should tailor this list to your self and your baby – if you have prescription medicines for baby, of course you should pack that – but here is a general guideline of the essentials you’ll want to pack: 

  • A day’s supply of diapers
  • A case of wet wipes
  • Plastic bags for disposing of soiled diapers and wipes
  • Diaper rash ointment
  • Baby powder and baby lotion
  • Hand sanitizer for you, for after changing
  • Extra pacifiers
  • A tube of teething gel and teething rings, if your baby is teething
  • Sunscreen
  • A few small toys and/or books
  • If they’re old enough, a Ziploc-style bag of non-messy snacks, such as Cheerios, and a juice box
  • Formula
  • Bottles
  • A change of clothing for the baby
  • Nursing pad for you
  • An extra blanket
  • A bib
  • A disposable camera, in case you want to catch a moment

 Be sure to clean out the diaper bag immediately after coming home, and be sure to double-check it before going out again.  Never assume you have enough supplies in there. You can also use your diaper bag to store a few essentials for you, such as a snack, a book or magazine, and a clean shirt. If you keep any valuables in your diaper bag such as your wallet, cell phone, extra set of keys, or some spare change, be sure to keep your eye on it as closely as you would your own purse.  Never leave it unattended.
