I thought this would be a fun question and also very helpful to new first times moms like myself.. What do you bring everywhere in your diaper bag? What do you consider a "can't live without"?

  • In my diaper bag I carry;

    15 Diapers (cause I never know how long I will be out and I want to make sure I have MORE than enough in case something happens)

    A refill container full of wipes,
    Diaper Rash Cream (usually Desatin or the Boudroux butt cream)
    a travel size container of baby lotion,
    her asperator,
    scented trash bags so my bag/car won't smell like dirty clothes,
    2 extra onesies,
    2 pair of extra socks,
    a thin blanket,
    an extra binky and the strap that hooks it to her clothes,
    Mylicon Gas Drops,
    Infant Tylenol,
    A toy or two (usually a rattle or something along those lines)
    3-4 bottle full of premeasured water,
    enough formula for all her bottles,
    Hand sanitizer,
    2 burping clothes and a bib. I think that is everything (or close to everything) in my bag.
