Just in time for the Thanksgiving holidays, I’ve put together my list of true diaper bag essentials. Not only will I share my hard-earned packing wisdom, we’ll GIVEAWAY one Let’s Go Strolling created diaper bag essentials kit (featuring items from this 3-part series).

I’m not only a co-owner of Let’s Go Strolling, but also a Mom to three – baby, 3 year old and 6 year old. This means I have many years of packing a diaper bag under my belt and while I wouldn’t say I’m an expert, for the most part I have whatever I need with me when I am out and about with my little ones.
Here’s my current list of diaper bag essentials:
2) Burp Clothes - Not only is this great for baby drool, it also wipes down wet park benches, dries tears, and serves as a changing pad in a pinch.
3) Wipes – I know this is a duh, but haven’t you ever been caught with a wipes case with no wipes. Not pretty! So I thought it was worth a mention. Also worth checking out is the new Skip Hop Swipes Case which makes getting to wipes a one-handed affair. We’re in love!
4) A spare outfit – I had BabySpareWare when my daughter was younger – which I loved. Now I just use a Generation Baby Handy Sak to hold a clean outfit. It’s great because when I do need to make a change on the go – it keeps the dirty outfit in a leak-proof bag separate from everything else. It’s also great for holding baby food or snacks separate so they are easy to find and don’t migrate all around your diaper bag.
