One of the toughest things for me to do was a transition from my baby bag to a toddler diaper bag. I just could not let go of packing everything plus the kitchen sink in my daughter’s bag. Today’s mom tips are sponsored by Always Liners via Mode Media, all opinions are my own.
Every time we left the house, I made sure to pack three outfits, wipes, ten diapers, toys, a sweater, clippers, thermometer and a fever reducer. Plus, I carried my purse, which included makeup, brush, deodorant, and a few other particulars. This craziness went on for a few years until I eventually got sick of lugging around both bags. So, in order to shift to a go-to bag packed with all the essentials for both of us, I took the following steps. Please feel free to share with your friends by clicking the buttons to the left.
3 Steps to Packing a Toddler Diaper Bag
Step 1: Spring Cleaning
First, I cleaned out both bags and took out all the items I felt I absolutely needed.
Step 2: Letting Go
Then, I went through my needs pile and put together a box full of items to keep in the trunk, such as her toys, an extra sweater, training pants and a plastic bag full of wipes.
Step 3: What’s Always On Me
Finally, it was time to create an on the go bag for Joy and Me.
For Joy I packed:
- A change of clothing
- Her brush and hair ties
- 2 Pull-ups and wipes in a travel container
- A thermometer and a copy of her shots records
For Me, I never know what the day will bring. So I included additional items that allow me to stay fresh all the time.
- Lotion, 3 oz body spray, and a few Always Xtra Protection Liners because they keep me feeling shower-fresh all day every day.
- A mini makeup bag with lipstick, lip liner and compact.
- My wallet
When I am on the go, I make it a point to carry all the items Joy and I need to freshen up throughout the day, and that includes Always Xtra Protection Liners, a must-have for every mom’s bag.
