Ever since announcing my second pregnancy, I’ve been getting so many messages a day asking about my baby must haves, what’s in my Lily Jade diaper bag, and any advice I’d offer to new moms. When I was figuring out life with a newborn baby, I remember feeling like I needed to have everything and anything in order to have a successful first year with Chase. This time around, I’m feeling much more prepared and confident in what I’m keeping in the house, the car, my diaper bag, etc. Plus, with two kids, there’s no way I can fit double of everything, so it’s all about consolidating and fitting the necessities in the right spaces. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen me talk about my favorite diaper bag from Lily Jade. I got the Caroline Bag and additionally purchased the Khaki & Camel Striped Crossbody Strap. I absolutely love this bag because it doesn’t look like your typical diaper bag, it’s seriously the cutest thing ever. I even use the bag as a purse sometimes since it literally matches everything! Anyways, back to the inside of the bag — Keep reading to see my diaper bag must haves!
Water Wipes – These are heaven sent! You’ve definitely heard me talk about water wipes before. They’re the reason Chase never had diaper rashes and have helped so much with his sensitive skin. I keep them in my diaper bag for basically everything – messes, wiping faces, diaper changes – you name it we use them for it!
Triple Paste – the best diaper cream
Baby Bum Brush – literally a MUST!!! No matter what diaper cream you end up using, it’s going to be super thick and sticky. I hated getting it all over my hands so when my cousin told me about this, I never looked back. I have a travel version for my diaper bag as well as the full size. I use it EVERY diaper change.
Baby Shusher The Baby Miracle – This thing is a miracle worker! It mimics the “shush” sound you make and puts the baby instantly at ease. I keep it in my diaper bag on the go or if baby gets fussy.
Bibs Pacifiers – THE BEST PACIS! Get these in every color… you’ll thank me later.
Accmor Pacifier Case: I always put Chase’s pacis in these to keep them safe and protected, especially during these times. Super convenient for travel too!
Stoney Clover Large Pouch – Great pouch to throw ALL your things in! It’s also easy to clean.
Dr. Brown’s Sanitizing Wipes – Love using these to clean off bottles and Chase’s Bibs Pacis when they fall.
Burp Cloths – I always keep at least two of these with me at all times. Never know when you’ll need to clean up on aisle baby!
Munchkin Disposable Bags – These are great to keep in your diaper bag for dirty diapers. They help conceal the smell!
Babyganics Hand Sanitizer – I swear I never leave the house without Babyganics hand sanitizer, especially lately. It’s overall a great product that makes me feel safe, clean, and sanitized when out and about.
Deft Pen – For when your baby stains those adorable clothes.
LYSOL Disinfectant Spray To Go – Self explanatory, but I love having things like this handy in travel sizes during the pandemic.
Snack Containers – My on the go mama trick is to always keep snacks in my diaper bag. Better to be on the go with a happy baby than a hungry one!
Munchkin Formula Dispenser – I exclusively used formula, so I always had this with me filled with formula and an empty bottle.
Portable Changing Pad – AMAZING for at home & travel changing.
Bibsters by Neat Solutions Large Disposable Bibs – LOVE these! I keep them in my diaper bag for when we go out to dinner or when Chase was a baby and I didn’t want him to dirty his nice bibs.
Suction Go Bowl – Love how compact this suction bowl set is! Great for on the go meals and always in my diaper bag for when we go out to eat.
Mickey Sticky Disposable Placemats – I like to put these down under the Suction Go Bowls to catch any mess Chase makes. They even work perfectly if you don’t carry kids suction bowls or plates and just put their food directly on their mats. Plus I love that they stick to pretty much any table surface! I got a fresh pack for our Disney trip.
What kinds of things do you keep in your diaper bag? Always looking for suggestions from other mamas!
