Hi guys! Welcome to my first Mommy Monday post. Today I am going to show you what I like to keep in my purse/diaper bag! I hope this is helpful to expectant moms, or moms who need ideas on what they should pack with them when taking the kiddos out.
I don’t use a traditional diaper bag, I prefer to just use a really big purse! I am currently carrying the Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM as my diaper bag. This purse is just one big tote, so I ordered this purse organizer from Purse To Go, so that I would have some organization and a lot of different compartments. They have a lot of different colors in this organizer, but I chose the cream color so it would match the bag.
Changing Pad – this is a plastic coated changing pad that rolls up really small. This is a must have for my bag when I have to change the baby in a restroom or a public place.
Diapers – I like Pampers Swaddlers best for newborns. They have the yellow line in the front that changes to blue when the diaper is wet.
Wipes – I like to buy the Kirkland’s brand from Costco.
Simethicone Drops – these are infant drops for gas, they are good to have just in case Ashley is feeling uncomfortable.
Kleenex – these travel packs of tissues are another must have! I always need to wipe faces or fingers.
Hand Sanitizing Wipes – these wipes from Babyganics come in these nifty little individual wrappers and are alcohol free- so you can use them on faces, hands, even pacifiers.
Pacifier – or Binky as we call it. My 3 year old never used one of these, but Ashley really likes them. These are the Avent ones for newborns with little sheep on them.
Socks – baby feet get very cold, so I like to have an extra pair of socks just in case.
Burpcloth – I like these Gerber brand burpcloths. They are thick and very soft. I use these to clean up any drool or spit up.
Giant Ziplock bag – this is a must have also! This is great to have in the bag just in case the baby has an accident and stains their clothes. Just change them and throw the dirty ones in this ziplock so it doesn’t get your bag all dirty. Lifesaver.
Extra Change of Clothes – I just have little floral printed onesie in here just in case.
Snacks – I like to keep a few snacks in my bag just in case we get hungry while out and about. I like these Kind bars, and Allison likes squeezies and raisins.
Activity – I always keep some type of book or activity for Allison in my bag just in case she gets bored and wants something to do. This little pack had crayons, stickers, and a little coloring book to keep her entertained. Perfect!
Wallet – I love this hot pink wallet from Kate Spade. It fits all of my cards and doesn’t take up much room.
Phone, Keys, Sunglasses – pretty self-explanatory there.
Makeup Bag – now for the good part. Haha. I keep this little rose gold colored pouch in my bag with a few makeup/beauty items in it.
-Travalo filled with Chanel Coco Mademoiselle
-Chanel gloss in Eden
-Dior Lipglow in Pink
-Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Rose
-NYX Butter Gloss in Apple Strudel
-Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Pencil
-Boscia Green Tea Blotting Linens
-NARS Light Reflecting Powder in Translucent Crystal
-I also keep a few hair ties in case Allison or I need to put our hair up.
So, that’s it for the diaper bag. It is a lot, but I like to be prepared. I hope this helps out other moms, or gals that are just curious! I know I always like to see what other people have in their bags.
Thanks for reading guys, have a great week! xx
