Mommy Series : What's in My Diaper Bag

     This post will be a little different than my other posts. I have been meaning to clean and sort my diaper bag the last few days, and finally got a chance to do that. You wouldn't believe what can accumulate in there (random money bills, moldy bread, my son's tie, a ziplock bag). It's like a minefield hahaha Since I enjoy these types of blogs by other mother's, I decided I'd write down what I pack in my bag for my 2 toddlers and baby.

My bag might look a little different than most. My 10-month-old is breastfed, so I don't bring formula/pumped milk. Neither of my 3 kiddos use a pacifier so you might also find that absent. We also try to bring as little stuff as possible. Only what we might actually need. Truth be told, I can add on to this list of what might come in handy, but since I'm packing for 3 kids, my bag can get bulky WAY too fast.

     Here is my diaper bag. It's a Carter's brand. I got it for $10 at a children's thrift store. It's not the fanciest, but I loved that it had many different pockets and the neutral color of it. It was 5 pockets on the outside and 8 on the inside, not counting the biggest space. The only thing I would have liked is if it could also be worn as a backpack. I've had it for a few months and it doesn't have any tears yet.

     Swaddle blanket (I use it as a blanket for Zeke when he naps. 
Small personal baggie
Small towel 
Extra undies and pants for Gabe and Noelani 
Go Pro
A few toys
Small pack of tissue
Hand wipes that David took from Chik Fil A
Pull ups (2 older kids sleep in pull ups and sometimes we are out late)
Diapers for Zeke (I don't cloth diaper outside the home, so these are disposables) 
Hand sanitizer
Plastic table cover for eating out
Wet bag
2 Notebooks (to keep kids entertained)
Headband (I use this to cover Zeke's eyes when he needs to nap)

And in the small clear baggie:

Sunblock stick
Diaper creams (the Nivea container is also diaper cream)
Nail clippers
Nail files

     Some Things that aren't pictured, but I add before we leave the house:

Sippy cups for all 3
Extra change of clothing for Zeke
Big camera 

     I'd love to hear what you keep in your baby bags (=


  1. This is great! Love the minimalist diaper bag. I should so a post like this. Question.. why the go-pro?

    1. We record our kiddos often. Most times its on our phones, but we try to get some on go-pro for them to watch later on as they get older (= just random clips of them throughout the day.
