Packing the Perfect Diaper Bag - Engineer Mommy
Jun 182016

Whenever I leave the house with the kids, I always need to make sure I’m prepared for anything. Is the older one thirsty in the car? I brought her bottle! Did the younger one have a potty accident? I brought a change of clothes & some Huggies® Little Snugglers diapers for her! Are we planning on spending some time outdoors today? I have the sunscreen with me! There are definitely certain must-have items that I always pack in my diaper bag. Keep reading to learn how to pack the perfect diaper bag.

Here’s what a well-stocked diaper bag contains:

  • Snack & Drink: Kids get thirsty & hungry on-the-go. They don’t care if you’re in the car or in a park. That’s why I always make sure to have some portable snacks & drinks with me at all times.
  • Toy: This one is especially useful for younger children. Whether we’re waiting in line at the bank or sitting in traffic in the car, babies can get bored & restless very easily. Avoid a meltdown by bringing along some small toys or stuffed animals.
  • Hand Sanitizer: We always have hand sanitizer within reach (whether we’re at home or on-the-go). It’s an easy way to prevent the transmission of germs.
  • Sunscreen: Especially during the summer, we always carry sunscreen with us so we can re-apply it every few hours when we’re outdoors. Keeping our skin protected under the sun is very important.
  • Change of clothes: There have been so many times I’ve been grateful that I packed an extra set of clothing for my kids. Whether it was a potty accident or a very messy meal, being able to put baby into a clean set of clothes has come in handy many times.
  • Diapers & wipes: Perhaps the most important items on this list, diapers & wipes are must-have items for every diaper bag. We’ve always loved Huggies® Little Snugglers diapers and Huggies® Natural Care wipes.

I remember when my kids were first born. I was so excited to hold them for the first time and give them their first hug! I remember those early newborn moments so well: those beautiful blue eyes, those tiny fingers & toes, that sense of security she felt in my arms, and so much more. Now, I’m happy to let Huggies® Little Snugglers provide their #SecondHug!

We love how Huggies® Little Snugglers Diapers feature the unique GentleAbsorb* Liner (sizes N-2), which has tiny, soft pillows that provide a cushiony layer of protection between baby’s skin and the mess. And with the color-changing Wetness Indicator, it’s easy to know when baby’s diaper needs to be changed.

Did you know that moms prefer Huggies® Little Snugglers Diapers over Pampers Swaddlers† (†sizes 3-5)? The Softer Outer Cover makes baby comfortable and lets her skin breathe. Plus, the Pocketed Waistband helps to contain the mess inside the diaper. I also appreciate that the diapers are free of fragrances and lotions.

When it comes to great wipes for baby, we love Huggies® Natural Care® Wipes. They feature TripleClean* Layers, which are durable enough to handle any mess but are still soft enough for baby’s sensitive skin. I really love that these wipes are hypoallergenic and free of fragrance and alcohol. With aloe and Vitamin E, these wipes are perfectly gentle for baby’s skin.

  1. When my kids were babies, my husband would joke that if we got stranded somewhere, we could live a week off of what was in the diaper bag. I always made sure I had plenty of Huggies and wipes too.
