My diaper bag has evolved from mega big to compact size over the years. Based on personal experience, I only bring these items which I feel that I will really need them all the time. My hb hardly offers his help with the bag so I will usually carry one with a design that suit me best. Currently, I prefer to use a sling bag. I try not to use bigger bag otherwise I will have the tendency to stuff more things into it.
I'm quite particular when it comes to packing the wet & dry items together. I will carry 2 small bags when we have to travel out of the house for more than 3-5 hours. One is the normal diaper bag & the other is the milk bag.
For the normal diaper bag:
I will prepare an extra set of clothing (for the youngest) since he will dirty himself easily as compared to his older siblings. Wet wipes, tissues, 3-4 pieces of disposable diapers, the necessary lotions & sprays for emergency use.
For the milk bag:I will pack a small flask of hot water, a bottle of normal temperature water, a water bottle, a milk bottle & a few sachets milk powder.
Yup...those are the basic stuff I will definitely pack when we go out. Occasionally I will pack some light entertainment (if necessary) too :)
What about you?
