The Art of Packing an Infant Diaper Bag

1843_10-641socialJust like the Boy Scouts, new mothers know they must “Be prepared!” Milk Nursingwear compiled our checklist of necessary items for your newborn’s diaper bag. Check out our Must-Have Diaper Bag slideshow below.

Baby Checklist:

  1. Diapers (one or two for every hour out, plus a couple extra)
  2. Wipes (travel wipes take up less room)
  3. Changing Pad (find the size that’s right for you)
  4. Plastic or Biodegradable bags (for those dirty diapers)
  5. Blanket (multi-purpose - nursing cover, for warmth, a clean surface for baby)
  6. Change of Baby Clothes (at least one outfit)
  7. Burp Cloth (to prevent stains; have a few)
  8. Pacifier or other comfort item (anything that will sooth baby)
  9. Diaper Rash Cream (save space with a travel size)
  10. Sling or Wrap for Carrying Baby
  11. Age appropriate toys (whether for engagement or distraction, have a few on hand)
  12. Hat (Hot or cold, baby needs protection)
  13. Medications (such as gas drops, teething meds, etc)

Mom/Dad Checklist:

  1. Wallet
  2. Keys
  3. Cell Phone
  4. Sunglasses
  5. Nursing Pads - for mom :)
