I cannot stand when the stuff I need most in my purse sinks to the bottom. This is especially true about my diaper bag, when I need a burp cloth or a pacifier I need it immediately.
This is how I keep my diaper bag as organized as possible. I not like to carry things that I will definitely need, and not let it get cluttered with extra toys and stuff.
This is what I keep in my diaper bag:
- At least 5 diapers always
- An extra outfit
- A burp cloth
- Hand sanitizer
- A bottle
I keep my formula in an empty food jar, so I don't have to bring the whole can which takes up too much space. I also bring one or two small bottles of baby water and put them in the side pockets of my bag.
I always utilize the pockets inside the bag! Most diaper bags have different compartments for bottles, a cell phone, etc. definitely make sure to use these, it'll keep your most important objects in easy sight.
Try not to put too many extras in the bag. I try to avoid putting lots of toys in the bag, Link has one favorite teething toy that he loves, so I clip it to the side of the bag.
Keep mommy items together! I keep all of my stuff in a separate plastic bag too. My sunglasses, wallet, hand sanitizer and keys all stay in one ziploc so it's not all floating around at the bottom.
