What's in My Diaper Bag

August 14, 2019
We have gone through 3 different diaper bags in this last year, which may sound a bit crazy, but finding one that checks off all your boxes was harder than I thought. At first I opted for a traditional Skip Hop bag that I really loved, but wasn't as functional as I hoped. I then went for the tote savvy insert for my Louis Vuitton Neverfull and while it did work, I always felt like I was missing something for Sophia and I think this will be a better option when she's a bit older. I finally settled on the backpack option not only for it's functionality and how much it could store, but also because there is nothing better than being hands free / being able to carry your child and still have your bag with you! 
I'm an over packer by nature, so it should come as no surprise that I'm ready for just about anything with what's in our diaper bag. I also like to have the majority of things ready to go, with the exception of food so that I don't have to think and can just grab and go!
  • Diapers, Wipes, Changing Pad & Creams || What diaper bag doesn't have diapers?! I also have a separate pouch so that I can easily grab wipes, cream & Vaseline. I like to have the separate pouch for when we're at a restaurant or I can leave my entire bag with someone else & just take the necessities in the bathroom for a quick change. I have the skip hop changing pad that I leave in the car, but for our diaper bag I use this plain amazon basics one
  • Sunblock, Hand Sanitizer & Bug Spray || Probably overkill, but I keep all three with us because inevitably on the weekends I don't know where the day can take us, especially if we will be outside for longer than I expected and need to reapply sunblock. I love BabyGanics products and have used them from the start. 
  • Pouches, disposable place mats, extra bib & snack container || I love pouches for on the go / restaurant eating. Even though Sophia can nibble on the food we're eating now, I like to make sure she has something of her own to eat. I love these disposable place mats to place food on & this snack container is clutch for keeping her snacks in place and not spilling all over the place. 
  • Wet wipes, pacifier wipes & stain remover || I'm a self proclaimed germaphobe and wipe everything down where ever we go. I am pretty brave and wear white with Sophia frequently, so the Tide To Go pens have come in handy more than once. I still keep the pacifier wipes in my bag, but we don't use them as often anymore, but it's good for wiping down her water bottle as well.
  • Extra bottle, formula dispenser & sippy cup || Sophia loves her sippy cup & since we're slowly weaning from formula to milk, I still keep two bottles worth of formula with me just in case. This is the best organizer that I've found. 
  • Toys || Got to keep the baby entertained! I love this Baby Einstein musical toy and have two - one for the house and one for our diaper bag! I keep one book & Sophie the Giraffe in there as well. 
You can find all my favorite baby items on my Amazon Shop Page!

Along with a backup pair of clothes, this is pretty much set to go at any moment. Is this too much or do you think I'm missing anything? 


  1. Great minds think alike because my post tomorrow is what is in my work bag haha! A little different from a diaper bag, but similar concept! Tide To Go pens and hand sanitizer are must-haves! Happy Wednesday, Biana!

  2. The tide to go pen is genius!! I'm going to add one to my backpack asap!!! XOXO, R

  3. I actually use that brand of sunblock on my grown boys, lol. It’s so good.

  4. Everyone has Sophie the Giraffe--it's so cute! Tide to go pens are ALWAYS a good idea!

  5. Girl, for a first time mom diaper bag, this is so stream lined and good!! And those disposable placemats are just the best for when you're out to eat!

  6. I love that we have very similar items in our bag! We still carry a diaper bag (most of the time) just to carry essentials like a sippy cup, snacks, wipes, and those disposable place mats are a game changer <3

  7. Those disposable placemats are THE BEST. I'm such a germaphob so these were perfect when the kids were little so I didn't have to worry about it when they tried to put their food on the table.

  8. I love the Tide Go Sticks - really smart move there!

  9. I'm the worst with the diaper bag lately because we'll take stuff out of it to use (diapers or wipes) and then forget to put them back in-- I always make sure there are lots of snacks though!

  10. Yes! We have a lot of similar stuff! Sophie is Sawyer's favorite!

  11. The baby einstein toy is magical for every baby!! They all love it!!

  12. You fit so much in your baby bag! I remember those days I had to carry a lot around with me! the boys are much bigger now (3 and 5) and so I don't have to carry as much and we just downsized to a little backpack - nice and simple as all we need is wipes, hats, water and maybe a snack!

    Hope that your week is going well! :)

  13. Looks like you have everything covered! Thank you for sharing!


  14. I need to get those disposable placemats! I’ve never heard of or seen them before, they’re so cute and genius. I think everything you pack makes sense and pretty much what I carry; though I need to pack a stain remover. Don’t ask me why I don’t already. Thanks for sharing, girlie, and I hope you’re having a great week!



  15. Glad you found a bag that works for you.

  16. Hands-free is golden! The placemats are wonderful, I have them in mine too and we ALWAYS have a snack cup, haha
