Unexpected Diaper Bag Essentials

Heading out with your little one can be both exciting and challenging. If you are like most moms, packing the diaper bag is probably your very first priority. Obviously, you will want to make the entire packing experience as stress-free as possible. In addition to all the fundamentals you know such as diapers, changing pad, baby wipes, etc. there are certain things you may not know or forget more often. Here are a few unexpected items to pack in your maternity diaper bag.

Hand Sanitizer

It’s important to ensure your hands are clean when interacting with baby particularly in the first few months when the child system is still in the developing phase. As a substitute for washing your hands time and again, we recommend you to keep a hand sanitizer. Make sure to get a high-quality and travel-friendly sanitizer.

Organic Changing Pad

Babies need diaper change more often. You may need to change the diaper every two hours. Look for an organic changing pad that is easy to fold and is waterproof. Undoubtedly, it will make the on-the-go changes and incredible organization. Many changing pads even come with hidden interior compartments for keeping the essentials such as diapers and wipes.

Natural Multipurpose Ointment

A multipurpose ointment is a perfect alternative to multiple ointments you need to carry. Consider buying one that is pediatrician-tested and petroleum-free. It should be effective enough to moisturize and comfort your baby’s skin. You can conveniently place it in the diaper bag side pocket for quick and easy access.

Stroller Clips

One important feature is stroller clips that let the bag easily hang from the stroller freeing up significant storage space. Without any clips, you will need to put your bag under the stroller leaving no space for shopping bags and groceries. It can be your best outdoor companion!


If you are a breastfeeding mother, you are more likely to feel a close kinship with the hungry caterpillar. Make sure to pack healthy snacks loaded with protein to help you get to the next meal conveniently. One popular snack is protein bars. They use minimal space and offer you a much-needed energy boost. On the other hand, homemade lactation cookies also make a great choice for quick energy supply. In addition, keep a refillable water bottle to stay well hydrated at all times.

Carabiner Clips

If you are not much familiar, carabiners are oblong clips designed for safety harnesses. You can keep it in your diaper bag with a pacifier secured to it. That way, you don’t have to dig deep to find the essentials. Also, these can be quite helpful for keeping hand sanitizer bottles, hair ties, and car keys secured in one place or hold a dog leash when you are on a walk with your other companion.
