Parenting can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to packing a diaper bag. With limited space, it’s important to stay organized and pack only what is necessary for each outing with your little one. Here are some tips on how to pack the perfect backpack diapering kit.
Pro Tip: Place a pad/blanket underneath your baby while changing diapers; this helps keep them clean and warm during cooler weather months!
- Start by making a list of items you plan to bring before packing your bag; this will help ensure you don’t forget anything important or leave something behind!
- Include items needed for messy diapers such as wipes, plastic bags, diaper rash cream and additional diapers if needed.
- Place bulkier items like bottles and clothes in the bottom of the bag while leaving room at the top for snacks and other smaller objects such as toys or teething rings.
- It’s also helpful to place an extra change of clothes in case of any accidents; make sure these are easily accessible near the top of the bag for easy changing on-the-go!
- Once everything is packed, double check that all zippers are closed and nothing essential has been left behind!
Dos & Don'ts
- Keep often used items such as diapers or bottles close to the top of the bag for easy retrieval when needed
- Utilize any internal pockets available within your bag so that items don’t become disorganized during transit
- Make sure all containers are sealed tightly before packing them into the back if they contain liquids
- Overpack your diaper bag; less is more when it comes to carrying around a heavy load with your baby!
- Leave fragile items (such as glass bottles) unattended inside your backpack where they can get damaged by other loose objects in transit
