I thought that I hauled around a lot of stuff with me when I had just my girls when they were singleton infants. Well now with twins I pretty much bring the kitchen sink with me. I had to work at making sure that I had tight and tidy diaper bag with the boys. I am lucky I still use the first diaper bag I got with Diana. I had others here and there but the one my sister made me has stood the test. Here is a quick break down of what I keep in it for when I go out.
- 6 diapers at least for a half day out
- 3 small burp cloths
- 1 large cloth
- several mini books for the girls, Robert Munsch ones
- An extra sleeper for each boy
- sample diaper cream
- sample hand sanitizer
- sample moisturizer
- small eye glass cleaner
- sample size baby powder
- lip balm
- 2 small face cloths
- Refill pack of baby wipes
- change pad
- Immunization records
The small items I keep in an extra makeup case I had in the house, it helps me to keep all my little things like creams in one easy to get to place. I use one of the side pockets to stick my wallet, itouch and cellphone. I have all my essentials with me and easy to get to. Once we get to doing longer trips out of the house, I plan to put a smaller bag together of extra clothes, diapers and cloths to keep in the car as a quick go to if I run out of anything.
Since I’m not bottle feeding yet I do not have to worry about those things, but when I do I plan to carry a formula divider and a few bottles. If one formula divider isn’t enough then I’ll either keep some formula powder in the bottles ready to go or get another divider.
I try to keep things as simple as possible with 4 kids in tow it can easily get out of hand on what I bring.
From our happy family to yours.
