What to pack in baby’s diaper bag

Hooray! You’re making plans to go out, good for you. Whether it’s a quick trip to the supermarket or a couple hours running errands, you’ll need to pack a bag for baby.

So what should you pack in a diaper bag? Well that depends on two key factors; where you’re going and for how long. Once you’ve figured that out, add or subtract items as you see fit, depending on how long you plan to be away from home and the duration of your stay.

Well this goes without saying, but first you’ll need an actual bag. Diaper bags range from very basic to elaborate designer handbags, the choice is yours. My tip is to go for utility first, and style second. Opt for one with several compartments, interior and exterior pockets and a fabric that can be wiped clean.
