Diaper Bag Essentials (0 - 6 Months)

Before the baby came, I wanted a list of what the heck to pack in the diaper bag! So here are the items I ALWAYS keep in my diaper bag now, almost 4 months in.

From 0-4 months, whether we’re at dinner or on a walk, I know I have what I need for me and the baby in my bag. I use my diaper bag (Fawn Design -linked below) as my purse during these months. I think it is a lot easier than carrying around an extra bag for myself.

Now that I’m back to work, however, I leave the diaper bag at home and carry a separate purse for the office. We will see how that all goes in about a month!

I’ve included all of the links to buy these items on Amazon. Most of what I buy is gender neutral, so it will work for future babies, as well.

Happy shopping!
