diaper bag dump.

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

While I don't vlog {code name for video blogging}, I do blog and wanted to participate in E-ho and friends' what's in your bag? link up.

As I have yet to transfer all my purse belongings over to my new and currently nameless bag {see below}, I'm going to do a post on what's in my DIAPER bag.
Yes this photo was taken in the post office parking lot {that's how excited I was over her arrival}. Tell me, what does one call perfection? 

Hope Squared

** I apologize in advance for these disgusting, grainy, no good iPhone photos - I'm beyond caring. 

Anyways, if you turned my 'baby bag' upside down and proceeded to group the contents {like the type A that you are}, you'd end up with this visual...


1. THE "D" BAG: I'm not the biggest fan of diaper bags to begin with, but I sorta fell in love with this OiOi giraffe print hobo when knocked up with Saige. It's not too bulky, has a yummy burnt sienna interior and screams African safari well before screaming "baby on board".

2. BABY DISTRACTIONS: every month I try to swap out our entourage of toys... baby boredom ain't pretty, prevention is key. I recommend carting around toys from 4 distinct categories: a board book, something with wheels, something super annoying {preferably with lights & loud noises} and something your baby can attempt to destroy with their razor sharp chiclets teeth. 

3. CHANGE STATION: if your husband is anything like mine and refuses to carry around a diaper bag inspired by Lion King than the Skip Hop pronto is his answer. Along with diapers and wipes, I also throw in a roll of doggy poop bags that can be found in the Dollarama pet aisle {$1 for 5 rolls, holla!}.

4. MOMMY STUFF: wallet, sunnies {I'm so Rachel Zoe}, keys, gum, cell and chapstick... I usually have a mini-hand sanitizer stashed in the side pocket, but I think Miss Saige may have stolen borrowed it. 

5. SNACKS: sippy cup of water, can of formula, bottle + room temp alkaline water, box of raisins, snack cup full of cheerios and baby cookies. Yes I let my children eat in the vehicle and regret it every time I take a vacuum to the truck. And yes I eat the majority of Gabe's baby cookies... it's like a 5:1 ratio... mama's hungry.

6. MISC: I'm telling you the Aden & Anais swaddle blankets are worth every penny. I didn't believe the hype when Saige was itty, but I've since learned my lesson. I literally use these godsends for EVERYTHING - blankets, burp cloths, bottle proppers, tissues, towels, games of peek-a-boo - they.rock. A spare onesie and pair of Robeez are an absolute must and a bottle of baby pain reliever is now a baby bag staple. One of these days I'll get around to switching the sunhat and sunscreen for some mittens and a toque {maybe come Spring}.

...

Soooo that's what I lug around when out & about and sadly it never seems like enough. I'm curious, what's in your bag? or more importantly, what's your take on me vlogging? 


yay or nay?

I'm YAY for you vlogging... you are a natural starlet! As for what's in my baby bag?? Well, with baby #1 I had a $400 designer leather baby bag full of Sophie's, mummum's, and all the other "necessities". With baby #2 I downgraded to a much lighter, cheaper diaper bag that had the real necessities like a change pad and diaper. Now, with baby #3, I'm lucky if I throw a diaper in my purse as I run out the door. Wet wipes? I just use wet paper towel. Toys?? My keys. Snacks? As if I won't be hitting Starbucks at some point....

Dude, you HAVE to vlog! Wait...no, SAIGE HAS TO BLOG! Seriously, I know that girl would be an amazing vlogger.

I agree with everying! During the fall and winter months we add Boogie Wipes to the stash.

oh my gawd I love you. that's SO true. It's probably a good thing baby #3 isn't in the Knol cards, I'd likely forget diapers altogether and have to fashion emergency diapers out of paper towel or Aden & Anais blankets ;) you need a blog ASAP

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

only you can pull off the "dude" and make it sound cool and SUCH a great idea, Saige the vlogger coming to a blog post near you... you think Kale would go for it?

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

ummm YES! congratulations mama you just named my bag. Camille & I THANK YOU *mwah*

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

can you believe I won it on a blog giveaway?! total score.

Sara K {SaigeWisdom} said...

I've heard of these Boogie Wipes but never seen or used them. I wonder if they're available in Canada... off to do some google research ;) xo

i totally agree with that first comment. the more you have the less you need. it's bizarre really. for the first, i felt like packing in a roll on suitcase just to head out for groceries wasn't enough. now, if there's a bag of leftover goldfish on the good ol' ford flex's floor and some leftover water in a sippy from who knows when... i'm set. i don't forget the wipes, however. they're a must. someone's nose is always running...

That is one prepared baby bag! I like it! I think it's smart to be as prepared as possible!
