Re-uploaded

Once again the SITS Girls are hosting the Back to Blogging event this week and I am excited to be participating!  Tuesday's post should be to "Re-upload a post you wish more people had read and explain why it was important to you."


So head on over to see the SITS Girls re-upload post today and link up with your re-uploaded past post!  I had trouble picking a post to re-upload, because I have low readership and it also helped me to re-evaluate what I am blogging about.  I went with the lower commented on posts and then I came upon this one.  I hadn't blogged in a few days because of vacation and I think people took a little end of the summer break just as I did.  This post is important, because I believe in moms and dads sharing what works and help other moms and dads out.

So here she is enjoy for the first OR second time...

Hey all, its been a while hasn't it!  We just got back from a fabulous week in California visiting friends and family.  I had every intention of scheduling some posts for when I was away, but go figure, I was super busy packing for 3 people!  More to come on the vacation at a later date (maybe this weekend, which is purposely LOW key).

So while catching up a bit today I went over to Gretchen's blog (Our Journey) and she posted about what can be found in her diaper bag, which is packed for two very precious twins every time she leaves the house.  I thought why not do the same!  Although I only pack for one infant and a toddler, I thought it might be fun to share what my essentials are.

First off the overnight diaper bags...
My mom bought this Vera Bradley one and its the one I use for Emma and always have!  I love it because its so durable!


I bought this one as a pregnancy gift to myself when we found out we were having Emma.  More like OMG I can't believe I am prego, okay now I need a cute bag!  I like this one, but not as much hence why we didn't use it until Izzie came along.
In our big bags the essentials are...
For Diapers...

Four size 5 pampers cruise for Biggie...


And eight size 2 pampers swaddlers for baby cakes...
I have tried other brands of diapers and have found that for girls, more specifically my girls, pampers are where its at!

Desitin for both (purple cream for Emma (a little more intense action that the baby doesn't need quite yet) and yellow clear stuff for babycakes)...


Wipes in a travel case, they both use the pampers sensitive (I find it works better for babycakes and it gets the job done for Biggie so why buy two different kinds!)...

Coppertone's Water Babies Sunscreen (in most months except for the winter) Emma is allergic to anything other than this and it still usually affects her a little...

Emma's travel toothbrush and paste (oral health=overall health haha!)...

Infant acetaminophen (the store brand version lately because of all tylenols recalls)...

One 6 ounce Avent bottles for babycakes (Emma wouldn't use these, but Babycakes wouldn't use the Playtex drop ins that Emma used)...

A munchkin on-the-go formula separator (Highly recommended!!)...

Breast pads for moi...

A Soothie pacifier or two (I would be lost without them for babycakes!)...

My baby sling (Essie designs), because babycakes LOVES to be held...
{This makes life so much easier so I can entertain both friends and baby (a sleeping baby at that)}

The random essentials...Cloth bibs for both, food catcher bib for Emma, Wash cloth for Emma, Burp cloth for babycakes, a change of clothes for each and an extra onesie for babycakes, an extra blanket for babycakes, and snacks for Emma.

We also have quick trip bags (good for a day outing)...

Emma's bag is the princess one (good for two diapers, a travel wipes case, desitin, a fork, bib, wash cloth, snacks, and a cup)!  Izzie's is the chic tote one (good for 4 diapers, it came with a matching travel wipes case, desitin, pacifier cleaner wipes, and a throw away changing pad)

So thats what we pack when we go out!  It takes a lot of planning to get out the door with two babies, but I always ensure my diaper bag is repacked whenever we get home so we are ready for anything!

Whats in your bag, I always love learning about new products for my babies and I!

Have a fabulous weekend!

So I hope you enjoyed and I love this kinds of posts, whether you're a momma or just sharing whats in your purse!

  1. Is it bad to say I don't miss those days? We once went on a two day overnight trip and I had TWO suitcases filled with stuff (for the baby) and forgot to pack anything for hubby OR me! Can we say sleep deprived?

  6. Since becoming a mom I'm always the person who gives the practical stuff at baby showers because now I know that babies don't just survive on the cute stuff. I love these kinds of lists.

  7. I really liked this post. It is fun to see what other moms are using and get ideas for other stuff. BTW my boys are both the same way with sunblock and have reactions to almost everything. I started using CA baby products and they haven't had a single reaction. I highly recommend it!

  8. Lordy! My daughter's 15 months and I can't wait til I can leave more of her stuff at home! Reading this post reminded me of the anxiety I had just packing her up for a doctor's appointment (I forgot her bottles AND her formula once and cried a river). I loved this post. Makes me feel like less of a neurotic mama. I've been teased about how much I pack, especially since I pack two extra outfits and a number of receiving blankest "just in case".
