Diaper Bag Organization for Unorganized People

Sep 14, 2008
Diapers and clothing are one of the first categories on the list. Following are items you should not forget: plastic bags for dirty diapers and dirty clothes, a package of diaper wipes small enough for travel, changing pad so as to keep everything clean, 2 or 3 changes of clothing depending upon how messy your baby is, hats appropriate for warmth or shade, 6-8 diapers this depends upon how long your outing will be(one diaper for every two hours out is a good rule), diaper rash medicine , baby powder if you baby tends to have problems in humid weather.

The next category would be anything having to do with feeding: if formula feeding you will need bottles, burp cloths, jars of baby food and spoons, 2-3 bibs, cans of formula or some containers of pre-measured formula, bottled water for you ( also for baby if using powdered or concentrated formula ), portable snacks for you and possibly your other children.

Preparing for your baby's safety and emergencies should also be a priority on your list. So For long trips here are some things that you should not forget to put in you diaper bag: band-aids, antibiotic ointment, tissues, fever reducer/pain reliever, hand sanitizer, cell phone, and sunblock.

Finally here are some diaper packing tips. Pack a lot of diapers. For every two hours you are out you should plan on having one diaper. Bring a few extra if your baby has diarrhea. If the weather is going to be cold then you should pack blanket either thick or thing depending on how cold it will be. You might want to pack an extra set of keys in your bag if you are the forgetful type. These could come in handy if your car automatically lock when then drivers door is shut. You may have had time to grab the diaper bag but not the baby. With that extra set of keys, you can still get the baby out.

If your child has allergies, you should always carry a liquid antihistamine in the diaper bag. For severe allergies, you may want to get an Epi-pen by prescription so that it can be kept in the bag at all times.

For those special moments you may want to keep a disposable camera with you in the bag. Also you should think about putting it in a bag to protect it from spills inside the bag. If it is not a disposable camera then you need to be extra careful.

If your formula feed, you are now able to use powdered formula. This is very convenient. All you have to do is measure the powdered amount of formula in an empty, clean bottle, and then pack a few bottled waters and mix it with the formula when the baby is ready to eat.

Now you have it. This is a fairly complete checklist to go by. If you can try to keep a diaper bag packed at all times so when you need to run out for something you will always be prepared.
