Just because you no longer have a baby, but instead have an energetic little toddler, doesn't mean your diaper bag days are over. In fact, I've found that, just like with babies, not only do you needed diaper changing products, but also snacks, something to drink, a change of clothes...I could go on and on! So, I thought it would be fun to share some of the things I keep in my toddler diaper bag with you.
Diaper Bag: Let's start with the bag. As much as I love fashion, for me, a diaper bag needs to not just be chic, but functional too. This Vilah Bloom Harbor Side Tote marries my two needs beautifully. Not only is it super cute, but it comes with amazing features like a 100% nylon exterior (easier to wipe down), 3 way carry (I'm all about cross body), a ton of useful storage pockets, water resistant lining...and many more! Plus, this isn't the kind of bag I'll put away when my children are older. It's definitely stylish enough to continue on carrying!
Water Bottle: I never want to be unprepared when my kiddo's thirsty, so I carry this handy dandy ZoLi bottle with me. It lives in the side pocket of my bag and I've yet to deal with a leaking situation. I also love that it's big enough for me to borrow too! My own water bottles never seem to be around when I'm headed to a workout. Haha!
Snacks: Bars travel well and, again, I pack ones that both toddler and mama can enjoy like Ginnybakes Love & Nuts bars. These delicious bars are organic, gluten free, dairy free and even kosher...If you or your kiddo have dietary restrictions that fall in those categories, these bars are for you. And even if you don't, they're darn tasty. That's reason enough for this girl. Haha! And I never leave home without a food pouch. Happy Tot Love My Veggies pouches contain a full serving of organic veggies. Score!
Skin Protectant: Both my kids have very sensitive skin. Using a cream like Hipoglos helps us prevent diaper rash and irritation. It basically leaves a protective seal, yet isn't difficult to wipe off, which anyone who has a kid with sensitive skin knows can lead to more irritation. I also like Pibu's Baby Butter. If my daughter's skin is dry and itchy, I can turn to this portable pot of of baby cream throughout the day.
Sunglasses: We live in Florida and that beautiful bright sunshine we're famous for stays with us all year long, so sunnies are a most for the whole family. I've always loved Babiators because not only are they adorable, they stay put!
Hand Sanitizer: Toddlers are VERY curious and as much as I try to stop mine from touching anything and everything when we're out and about, she inevitably ends up sticking her cute little fingers someone they don't belong, so I feel better when I have hand sanitizer readily available.
Change of clothes: Kepping an extra outfit in your bag is a given no matter what your child's age is. You never know when an accident or spill is going to take out their look. Am I right?
So, what are you toddler diaper bag must haves lovelies?
