How many things in your diaper bag do you actually use?!

I have a diaper bag. It's a backpack. It is stuffed full.

Why? I don't know. I have a nursing cover that I don't use, a change of clothes for both the kids, diapers, wipes and who knows what else. I don't know how it's so full.

Only thing I've ever used is diapers and wipes. I wonder why I cart so much crap around- or how fast the bag fills up with the "essentials"

Bah. Carrying around a diaper bag, a 3 year old and an infant seat is hard. Half the time i'm breastfeeding while doing that too. Wonderwoman? Maybe.

  • When I had a diaper bag I actually kept 2. One with just the bare needs and one with the works. The first I'd grab as we went out the door for groceries, etc. The other was for when we planned on being out awhile and it had changes of outfits, snacks, binky, sippy cups, etc. The first had wipes, diapers, binky and bib.

    I had to go to this because at one time I actually had 3 in diapers of various sizes and needs so I didn't want to be caring everything all the time.

  • Only thing we ever used was the diapers, wipes, bottles, and hand sanitizer. And occasionally the extra outfit.

  • I have diapers, a blanket to cover with while I nurse, wipes, a change of clothes for my one year old daughter, a spare pair of socks (because she likes losing hers and it is too cold for her to go without them), toys, dog leash, chewing gum, my wallet, my ipad, first aid kit, Orajel, Capri Suns, my nephew's water gun (now how did that get in there?), extra phone charger, crushed Cheerios, spare keys, ID from work, dog treats, baby treats, mommy treats, hair brush, pens, tissues, children's Ibprophen, grown up Ibuprophen, styluses for my ipad, and I think that's it. Wow, no wonder I'm so short. I'm carrying so much crap around.
