When you have a baby, you will always have a diaper bag wherever you go. When you go out with your baby, it’s important to be prepared! I recommend buying a backpack diaper bag so you don’t have to worry about throwing your shoulder out carrying a duffle style dipaer bag, you’ll also be able to easily use both hands while wearing it.

So, what should you put in your diaper bag?
- Diapers– About 10-12 is good.
- Wipes– Just throw a full back in there! Keep an eye on them though, you don’t want to run out.
