Once your little one comes into the world, you will definitely have your hands full, and we know that you will not have it any other way! We also know that in the first few months you would not plan on travelling anywhere with your little one, but when you do, you might need a separate bag altogether to carry the essentials for the little one.
However, to make sure that you do not have to carry unnecessary things, here we have a list of the things that will come most handy during your outings apart from the diapers obviously.
- Baby Wipes:
Baby wipes are a must have in your diaper bag especially if your little one ends up soiling the diaper that he is wearing. No need to use the public convenience in such a case, just use the wipes to clean up your little one before changing the diaper.
- Bottle of Milk:
Your little one could get hungry anytime during your outing. There is always the chance that your little one will get hungry on your little outing, having a bottle of milk handy would really benefit the both of you. He/she will be a happily fed baby and you can roam around with your little one, not having to worry about whether he/she is hungry. Win win isn’t it?
- Extra Clothes:
Keeping an extra pair of clothes for your baby is a really good idea! Imagine if in case along with the little one’s diaper, his/her clothes also get soiled. You might just see going back to your house as a good solution. But what if going back to your house is not a feasible option? Here is where the extra clothes come to the rescue
- Hand Sanitizer:
The fact that you may need to change the little one’s diaper or clothes anytime during your outing, has to be a major incentive when it comes to carrying a hand sanitizer. Apart from offering the obvious germ killing properties, the brilliant fragrance that the sanitizer offers, will also make sure that any lingering odour vanishes! A miracle in a tiny bottle, this one!
- Disposable Bags:
Travelling with a little kid in tow and without a disposable bag in your purse is rarely advised. Disposing off dirty diapers becomes a lot easier when you have a disposable bag with you. Always make sure that you carry these with yourself so that even if the need to change the diaper of your baby arises, you atleast have some place to put those soiled diapers, before you begin searching for a dustbin!
- Disposable/Waterproof sheets:
Try to think of a scenario where you might have to change your little one’s soiled clothes/diaper, but where do you do it and how? You have to put the little one down somewhere so as to make sure he is comfortable and so are you while you change the diaper. But you will obviously be concerned about getting the surface, where you plan on laying your baby, soiled too. Having a disposable sheet handy in such a case makes a world of difference.
We really hope that this list will help you sort and organize things that you need to keep in your bag better! After all we do not want you to work harder than you already are!
