Diaper bags are, of course, essential when you have an infant. The day you don't pack enough clothes or diapers is the day disasters are bound to occur. Having learned from my mistakes from when my son was a month old and needed 6-8 pairs of clothes in an overnight trip, I feel I'm now well prepared for most situations! Luckily he doesn't need half as many clothes anymore when we go out as he's 11 months old. Phew!
So, introducing my diaper bag, the Petunia Pickle Bottom! This is a Boxy Backpack in Black Current. (Tip: get PPB items from PetuniaOutlet.com . They have amazing deals twice a year I believe).
You can wear it as a messenger bag or backpack. I chose messenger style - easier to hang on the stroller!
Best part: It has a built in diaper changing system! Easily fits 4 diapers, wipes case (included) and some creams. I also keep a disposable changing pad behind the wipes if needed.
The pockets inside the bag
Here are the contents inside the pockets.
In the most bottom part of the bag goes an extra pair of clothes for me. Never know when you'll need it with a baby!
His clothes are placed in this Jujube Quick Pouch. It stays much more organized that way. I have a long-sleeved onesie, a short-sleeved one, pants, jacket, hat, extra diaper and travel wipes in this.
And the remaining stuff: a cover, formula compartment box thingabobber, and a "Mommy pouch".
Here are the contents of my pouch
And there it is, all of those contents neatly stored away in the diaper bag with room to spare!
There are 2 side pockets. I keep up to 2 bottles on one side.
And my wallet on another
Lastly, I got this plastic bag dispenser for diapers for emergency situations, like changing it in the car. It's lightly scented, which is a plus!
Hope the tips were useful!
