A Diaper Bag Checklist Listing Everything You Need To Carry Around For You and Baby.
You absolutely must get yourself at least one really good diaper bag. (I recommend two - one to keep in the stroller, and one to keep in the car.)
The best diaper bags have a changing pad included with lots of pockets for diapers, creams, wipes, bottles, pacifiers and everything else on your diaper bag checklist. You will need to take loads of baby stuff with you wherever you go with baby. And you'll need to get to those things quickly and easily.
Having a well-organized diaper bag is invaluable when your sweet, cooing little one suddenly goes off the deep end in the middle of the mall because he's hungry - some babies really can go from docile to ballistic in a matter of seconds when hunger strikes!
My Top Tip: Keep your diaper bag packed and ready to go at all times. I have one in the back of my stroller and in the back of my car - I just add food! It takes long enough getting out of the house with a newborn without having to think about what to pack in your bag!
