Diaper Bag Guide for the New Mom

A diaper bag is a saving grace for mothers, it carries all the essentials to keep your baby happy and comfortable. When I was getting ready for my little one I had no idea what I would be needing and put everything and anything in the bag. This is a quick guide of the basics that you will absolutely be needing. Once you get in the groove of things you will be adding many more items that are specific to your little one.

The Bag

Try to find a bag that has plenty of pockets, an insulated space for bottles, and a wipe pouch for easy access. I also prefer a backpack style bag so that I can throw it on my back and still have both hands free. Most bags come with a changing pad, but if not it’s a good idea to get one. Make sure you actually like the style of the bag because you’re going to be carrying it around a lot. Neutrals are a better for matching with every season.
