Never leave home without your tools, especially those for changing diapers.
Your partner will likely be the one who puts the tool kit together. However, it has to be restocked continually. So if you’re heading out the door with baby in tow and you’re in charge of the diaper bag, check to make sure you’ve got these basics.
- diapers – at least 2 or 3 for short trip, more for longer trips
- change pad
- complete change of clothes for baby (pick an outfit you can put on easily)
- diaper cream (if using)
- plastic bag (for dirty diapers)
