For moms out there, this has been one of most handy, on-the-go, versatile piece of innovation that they could come across with a baby. A diaper bag with literally everything you need in one place. Life saver you could call it. Whatever the means you like to refer this is one item that comes in handy for moms until their kids are big enough to handle themselves alone. But one thing most mums are not aware of is, what needs to be included and what needs to be out! Moms tend to hoard and load everything they can possibly grab within hands reach. They tend to forget which is what after a period of time. So here’s your complete solution for all the agony. We give you the complete breakdown on how to or organize your diaper bag minus the mess.
Step one – De-clutter
Clear out a space to get organized and first spill out all the contents of the bag into the cleared out space. This way you can determine what needs to stay and what needs to go. Remove all unwanted toys which your kid shows no interest on except for one or two of their personal preferences. Dispose old sanitizers, diapers which are not in the most suitable condition to be used and old worn out cloth nappies which are too old to use. Throw away all used pieces of tissues and simply clean clean clean!
Step two – Look for what you need
Acquire new set of diapers and wipes. Neatly place them along with your changing mat. If your child is on formula, then you will need to pack ready-made formula as well as on the go-formula to use as and when needed. A bottle with a clean teat, A spoon that fits your baby’s mouth and baby plate if your baby has started solids. A bib, change of clothes, a toy, a book, sanitizer, extra cloth nappies, a zip lock bag to store dirty clothes in and keep a separate compartment to store all your stuff. You can call it mum’s emergency kit. You can store away a lip balm or lipstick, a few hair ties, a shawl when you have an accidental spill from your baby, sunglasses and sanitary pads as per your choice.
Diaper bags are much loved by many due to reason of having many pockets in various sizes. You don’t need an extra large diaper bag to store all the items. Large bags tend to be heavy and it will cause you great inconvenience.
