As a first time mom everything being taught to me is new. Sometimes I get over whelmed with all of the choices they have out there for children. Especially when it comes to different products. I usually ask my mom or one of my friends with kids about certain items before I purchase them. Word of mouth is a source people having been using for years. Not to mention the influence added with social media that makes your decision to buy things 10x harder !! I know I’m not the only mom who goes online to buy something and gets hit with all sort of comments from buyers making me back pedal my choice sometimes .
In all I’m happy when I hear from other mom’s just like me because we all want the same thing . Something safe and something that will make our kids happy (And of course a bargain). Well all of these were tested when I was searching for my son’s diaper bag. If your like me then you always like to be prepared when leaving the house with your child. I quickly realized that it would be super expensive to find a decent stylish/non bulky diaper bag that could hold all of Titans things. Being prepared means having enough diapers/bottles/cups/ Toys, and emergency supplies as the list goes on. Me personally I don’t like big bulky diaper bags , but I was willing to carry whatever to get the job done. Even if that meant that I would dread packing and carrying his bag .
Well my worst fear had came true I received a diaper bag gift at my baby shower , now in all fairness it did have a cute little monkey on it and a few pockets for easy travel, but it was big . However I grew to love it being that it was my first diaper bag ever ! But I knew I would have to get another one soon. When I would take titan to the doctor I had to carry the big diaper bag and my purse, it was beginning to be team to much. I started looking online and saw this stylish bag that every mom was raving about and I thought to myself ” It can’t be that great ” they advertised a affordable stylish bag with plenty of space for all your babies needs. The places they put the pockets on the bag were unique. It was like you had space for everything even your wallet !! They also had a cute little built in wipe holder.
I read the reviews and saw no complaints, but I still didn’t believe this would be the bag for me . Well as you know I’m a big reality tv watcher and I saw one of the girls on Teen mom ( yes I still watch the show Don’t judge me ) wearing one and I was like that’s it I’ve got to order one and see for myself what the hype is about.
Let me just say this I’ve got 6 words for you . I’m -obsessed- with -my -new – bag! It has so much room for all of Titans stuff . You can fit 3 full bottles alone just with the use of the outside front pocket. I enjoy getting ready for trips now. With its price point being under $40 bucks it was a slam dunk for me. They have so many different choices of colors online. Rather polka dots or a more laid back simple look that I brought. Now that I’ve got the diaper bag of my dreams it was time to stuff it . What do you pack when leaving for the day ? From my experience more is sometimes better . You never know when your going to need something and accidents happen all the time. Try not to over pack for quick trips it can be a headache. Always try to pack these basics if your leaving for more than a couple of hours.
- Baby blanket
- Diapers/wipes ( Plenty)
- A toy so your little one won’t get bored
- Thermometer ( You might need it)
- A change of clothes
- Diaper rash cream (I rarely have to use this but you might need it.)
Only you know what your baby’s needs are so what works for someone else, may not work for you in your diaper bag. The point is there’s nothing wrong with wanting a little style while you carry. Now there also will be times that you forget a item or two ( I can tell you a story next time about the time I forgot the ” baby wipes) . Long as you try your best to stay prepared . I love leaving the house feeling confident that I have everything my baby needs. Which in turn makes for a smoother day out for the both of us. I hope this helps you in some way rather you want to go online here and buy the stylish bag I’ve showed off or something similar to it. Or maybe you just needed a few tips on diaper bag packing.
