A Mommy’s Checklist: Packing a Diaper Bag

Posted by

Especially for first time moms, packing up all of baby’s daily essentials can be a handful. It is very likely that you will forget something very important and wish you could run back home to have it with you.

No need to worry because pretty soon you will find a formula that works for you, but until then, here’s a guide for packing a daytime diaper bag.

Note: Adjust according to season, the length of your trip, baby’s age and special needs.

The Essentials

  • Diapers
  • You may need one for every two hours and a few extra more just in case.

  • Wet Dry Bags and Ziplocs
  • Great for storing wipes, extra clothes, used diapers and more. Wet Dry Bags are an ideal sanitary must-have and absolutely convenient for sealing in odor and moisture.

  • Hand Sanitizer and Wipes
  • Changing Pad
  • 1 - 2 Changes of Clothes
  • This goes for you and baby. These items would be most needed in case of spit-ups or spills

  • Bottle(s) of formula or expressed breast milk if you're bottle-feeding
  • Baby food and spoons
  • Sippy cup of milk, water, or juice (for toddlers)
  • Blanket and nursing cover
  • To add more comfort for baby and for adding privacy when breastfeeding in public. 

    (Note: Some blankets may be used as nursing covers as well, it’s up to you.)

  • Burp cloths and bibs
  • Sunblock (if baby is over six months)
  • Pacifier (if your child uses one) or other teething items
  • Mommy tip: Remember to pack these in clean bags

  • Emergency information
  • Make sure you have a list of contact details of your friends, family and doctor programmed in your cellphone. Aside from phone numbers, never forget your credit card and insurance cards.

    The Extras

  • Diaper cream
  • Extra plastic bags
  • Other than the Wet Dry Bags or Ziplocs, it’s good to have spare ones too just in case.

  • Light jackets for baby and mommy
  • Hats for sun or cold
  • Camera
  • Don’t forget to capture those priceless innocent moments you have with your darling baby. You may also use your mobile phone for this one.

  • Nail Clippers
  • Medicine and First Aid Kit
  • You can bring a couple of band-aids, antibiotic cream, fever, pain reducer and others first-aid basics.
