    What’s in my diaper bag, you ask?

    …Ok, or maybe you don’t, but I’ll tell you anyway.

    I’ll start off by saying that our diaper bag is the Lite Hobo bag by California Innovations. It retails at BRU for about $45. It’s nothing special to look at, but it’s big, priced right, and neutral enough for S to not mind wearing it (and believe me he does). I’ve come to the conclusion that as far as diaper bags go, you can never find anything too big. Now… in terms of the contents:

    • The obvious: diapers (about 1 for every 2 hours of outdoor fun)
    • A diaper bag for the dirties
    • A changing pad and bootie wipes
    • An extra outfit for G
    • A hooter hider for yours truly
    • Water bottle
    • A snack for me (it’s come in handy on more than one occasion)
    • Sunblock (yeah, G and I are whiter than white)
    • Rash creme
    • Hand sanitizer
    • Hand lotion (who’da thunk that baby care would be so brutal on the hands?)
    • Sunglasses for the little dude (yeah, he’s stylin’ in those)
    • Tissues (‘cuz my nose will cry you a river come allergy season)
    • A paci
    • A camera
    • While we’re out and about I also use the bag as my purse, so I carry my wallet, phone, keys, and sunglasses
    • Occasionally a toy or two
    • Sometimes a jar of food if we’re out around that time of day

    About a year ago I had posted this question to my mom’s group and my manager (whose wife is on the list) to this day won’t let me live it down. He swears I’m anally retentive, must-be-prepared-for-anything type of person. Ha, like it’s a bad thing ;p

    One response to “What’s in my diaper bag, you ask?”

    1. Okay, so I have the EXACT same stuff in my bag except the very last item – jar of baby food. And I had a spreadsheet going during pregnancy of exactly what would be in our diaper bag to start. This blog entry made me smile. 🙂
