Checklist: Packing a Diaper Bag

Okay, so you threw in the wipes. Here's everything else you'll need in your diaper bag.

You’ll soon find a formula that works for you, but until then, here’s a guide for packing the diaper bag. Adjust according to season, the length of your trip (around the block or around the world?), and baby’s age and special needs.

[] Diapers (one for every two hours and a few extra)

[] Diaper wipes in a zipper bag (these also work as hand wipes for mommy)

[] Changing pad

[] Diaper cream

[] Plastic bags for dirty clothes and diapers

[] 1-2 changes of clothes

[] Shirt or jacket for baby and mommy

[] Blanket

[] Hat for sun or cold

[] Bottles and formula (for a lighter load, measure powdered formula into clean bottles and mix with tap water at the destination, or pack bottled water)

[] Baby food and spoons

[] Burp cloths and bibs

[] Teething gel or rings

[] Pacifiers (pack with nipples in a clean bag)

[] Toys for comfort and distraction

[] Hand sanitizer

[] Sunblock (if baby is over six months)

[] Antibiotic cream, fever and pain reducer, antihistamine

[] Emergency phone numbers and information
