As a mom of soon-to-be 2 under 2, I thought it would be helpful to share what I’m packing in my diaper bag for a toddler and a newborn.
When I was a first-time mom, I always asked friends and family what to expect, what their essential items were and what really wasn’t necessary. With two years under my belt, I wanted to give you a checklist of items I plan to pack and what really hasn’t been essential for me.
I always tell myself “Less is More” but that really isn’t the case when it comes to packing for a newborn. If you’re out running errands, anything can happen and you always want to be prepared. But the last thing you want to do is tote around a diaper bag that weights 30 pounds.
So what do you pack when you have a newborn AND a toddler?!
Grab the FREE printable and keep it on hand. I love having checklists to make sure I don’t forget anything, especially when #MomBrain kicks in. One of my favorite items is this Indie & Chic pacifier clip. I can’t tell you how much of a lifesaver this will be, Oliver lost so many pacifiers and this is the perfect solution!
Also – If you haven’t already taken a look, I share my Baby Number Two Must-Haves! Being a first-time mom is trial and error. Some things may work for you and your babies that don’t necessarily work for other families and that is OK!
