  • bottles with formula ready to go or if it was a long trip just some powder and i would stop to get hot water, that way it was fresh. burp cloth, extra clothes, diapers, and anything your baby would use if they use a paci or diaper cream. i usually assess what we might need before we go somewhere, because over packing leads to a mess and that can be stressful for me, so i only take what i need. thats how i do it! good luck mama and congrats

  • I breast fed so all I had were wipes, diapers, and burp cloths,a change of clothes, and a couple small receiving blankets to cover myself when I fed our boys out in public. I carried a small bag with all 3, I couldn't imagine carrying a big bag with a ton of stuff.

  • I've never packed one if I was going to be out of the house less than 8 hours or so. I just pack a few things in my purse...a couple diapers and a baggie of wipes, an extra set of pajamas, and a pacifier. I breastfeed though, so no need for bottles and such. I usually end up with some things in the car, too.

  • in the begining I breastfed so I took my hooter hider so I could feed in public, a spitrag, a paci and a back up paci, a change of clothes, diapers and wipes, a changing pad and a blanket. If your formula feeding the only really different thing would be a bottle, formula ( they have dispensers that you can preportion 3 bottles at a time) and a waterbottle with hot water in it so you always have warm water for bottles.
