The Baby Bag

Babies need a ton of stuff. Like, a ton. And, then if you want to actually get out of the house and enjoy some fresh air, you might feel like you have to pack up everything to take with you. Let's figure out what really makes sense to pack in your baby/diaper bag.

The Necessities:
- Diapers
- Wipes
- Pad to put down for changing
- Any ointments or creams needed for changing
- Plastic bags for containing used diapers
- Burp cloths and/or receiving blanket

Things Mom may Want:
- Nursing Pads
- Small pillow to use while nursing/feeding

Things Baby may Want:
- One or two small toys to keep baby busy while changing, etc.
- A change of clothes (one complete outfit in case there's a blowout or mess)

Don't forget any medications that parent or baby may need regularly. Keep a stash in the bag, as well. And, it's always a good idea to toss in a little cash and a phone charging cord, in case of emergencies.
