The discussion this week at momstown Mississauga's Baby Basics centered around diapering. The group used a wide variety of brands and varied between cloth and disposable diaperers. There was no clear winner on brand either – there were Huggies, Pampers, Parents Choice, Honest Company and Kirkland users. All the moms agreed they had tried a brand or two until they found what worked for their child.
Depending on the age of your child you will need to pack different things in your diaper bag but the essentials are basically the same for the first year. Feeding supplies will vary, from bottles and sippy cups to pouches of prepared baby food and the essential mum mums and baby puff snacks.
Here’s our list of Diaper Bag Essentials.
Diapers – pack more than enough for a whole day just in case plans change.
Wipes – these come in handy for not just diaper changes but also small clean up jobs.
Diaper Cream – From vaseline to Penaten cream something to soothe a sore bottom is essential.
Hand Sanitizer – when you are stuck and can’t wash your hands after a diaper change.
Plastic Bag – a must if there is a poop explosion on the clothing or just to take a diaper home
Change Pad and blanket – great for diaper changes or to lay the baby down for an impromptu picnic
Feeding Supplies – these will vary by age but once you have a child that eats solids snacks are a must
