Diaper bag tips to remember:

  • Get a quality diaper bag. And get one that’s bigger than you think you need, with multiple compartments — the extra room will come in handy.
  • To save time, get a second diaper bag and keep it packed with diapering accessories and ready to go for shorter outings.
  • Bring a plastic bag for disposing of waste.
  • For longer trips, make a list of everything needed on a per-day basis, and then pack accordingly. Double-check when you’re done.
  • Keep leaks at bay by packing liquids, medicines and snacks in separate re-sealable plastic bags.
  • Always have emergency contact info on hand —— health insurance cards, phone numbers for family, friends and doctors.
