Cloth diapering on the go is simple when you have a good packed bag, ready to utilize cloth diapers wherever you may be going. Here is a great helpful list of things you should pack in your diaper bag.
Of course, you are going to need some back up cloth diapers to put on your little one on the go. Choose cloth diapers that are easy to travel with, such as All In One Cloth Diapers or AI2 Cloth Diapers. To make your diaper bag more slim, snap the diapers like you would on your baby, and place them in the bag. The amount of cloth diapers you will want to bring along will depend on how long you will be out for, if your child is a heavy wetter and may depend on age by how much they will urinate over the traveling time.
Small Wet Bag
A small wet bag will hold your dirty cloth diapers until you get back home. The wet bag will keep your wet diapers from leaking into the bag and creating a place for you to set the dirty diapers easily until you are back home. It's easy to forget soiled cloth diapers in your diaper bag, so make it a habit to take everything out as soon as you get home.
Wipes- disposable or reusable are a must in the diaper bag. Be sure to have enough for any messy diapers or for more serious wetness. Pack some extra in case you need to clean you little one's hands or face.
Cloth Diaper Safe Crem
A great cloth diaper safe rash cream is also a great accessory to have in the diaper bag. Having a cloth diaper safe rash cream will ensure that you are ready if any redness may come on- without having to risk being in need of an unsafe cream while on the go. Chose sample size creams to save some space in your diaper bag.
Extra clothing is a great idea in case of leaks or blow outs on the go. You can also use the small wet bag to hold any wet or dirty clothing items. Depending on the season, you might need to add extra socks, gloves or hats.
Don't forget to keep extra t-shirt for yourself too, you never know when you might need it!
There are several other accessories that can become handy in a diaper bag:
- hand sanitizer
- sun lotion
- nail file
- non-perishable snacks for little-one and yourself
- changing pad
- burp cloths
- something to entertain with: books, toys, games, bubbles
