Diaper Bag essentials- What to pack

This blog post is going to be everything about Diaper Bag essentials- What to pack.
As parents, we always go overboard while packing the diaper bags so much that it becomes really heavy at the end, and while travelling it becomes a task to carry the diaper bag.

If we are going out obviously we want to enjoy the time out with baby, but a heavy bag to carry all along becomes a heavy duty task.. isn’t it. But nevertheless we want to make sure that we are carrying all the essentials that may be required to keep the little one comfortable.

So let’s see some of the essentials, I have categorized them based upon the age groups-

Diaper bags for 0-6 months old
1. 4-5 diapers (This actually depends upon the duration of stay, if we are going to stay for longer period, we should increase the number of diapers.)
2. Wet wipes (Always prefer smaller packets of wet wipes for diaper bags as the full pack has more weight)
3. Diaper rash cream
4. 3-4 extra pair of clothes
4. Changing mat
6. Hand sanitizer
7. Baby blanket
8. Nursing scarf (If breastfeeding- so that it becomes convenient to feed them in public places.)

Few things to note:
While selecting a bag look for the below-
1. Light weight- Most important factor while selecting a diaper bag.
2. Compartments- Check for the compartments, as more the compartments will be, the more organized the bag will be.
3. Color- Go for a color that you can use for longer duration as many a times we select bright colors that look attractive for a while but later on looks odd.
