Want to know my living nightmare? Being away from home with an empty diaper bag. There’s nothing more stressful or embarrassing than when your baby has a blowout and you don’t have enough diapers, wipes, or a change of clothes. Today, I’m going to rescue you from this scenario by providing a checklist for all the diaper bag essentials you need at any given time!
The first rule of going anywhere with your baby is to ALWAYS have necessities for diaper changes. It doesn’t matter if it’s a walk around the park or a day out and about; babies don’t wait for convenient times for a diaper change, and you should always plan ahead. Below we listed all the important changing necessities!
- Diapers (more than you think you will need)
- Baby powder
- Diaper creams/ointments
- Baby lotion
- Dirty diaper bags/holders
- Changing pad

Spit happens! We got you covered. Whether it’s a lost sock or a onesie that didn’t survive changing time, it’s always better safe than sorry. With this list, your little one will be covered from head to toe!
- Extra onesie or top
- Extra bottoms
- Extra socks/shoes
- Seasonal hat
- Burp cloths (at least 2)
- Extra top for parent (trust me on this one)

Hangry is a real thing– for babies and parents. Even if you’re only going out for a few hours, having a snack and something to drink will ensure a happy outing. This checklist will cover any liquids + solids you need on you to keep you and your baby healthy and happy!
- Stored breastmilk/formula
- Pumping + breastfeeding supplies
- Bottles + any feeding supplies
- Snacks for you + baby

When we say life savers, we mean in a somewhat literal and metaphorical sense. Some things you need on hand at a moment's notice (like when your baby gets a boo-boo), and some are good to have when you just changed a blowout diaper and you’re desperate for hand sanitizer. Whatever you need, these essentials are here to help!

There’s nothing wrong with a little distraction to keep your little one entertained while you get a couple of things done! Whether in the car seat, or a stroller, these items can be the perfect distraction.
