On the Go > Everyday Diaper Bag
Skip Hop Forma Diaper Backpack (for mommy)
+ Skip Hop Duo Diaper Backpack (for daddy)
Even at full capacity, these diaper bags can be worn quite comfortably or attached to the handles of our Bugaboo Cameleon3 (on city streets) or Babyzen Yoyo+ (in the subway) using the stroller clips conveniently built into the shoulder straps. Visit STWFU for our full reviews of these backpacks.
The organization of our backpacks vary slightly based on the components of each design; below is a comprehensive description of the contents in mama’s bag. Combine your favorite gear and products with our packing list and tips.
Inner slots of main backpack:
+ Diaper changing pad (included by manufacturer)
+ Honest Diapers (4-5 count)
+ WaterWipes Baby Wipes in OXO Tot On-the-Go Wipes Dispenser
+ Honest Soothing Bottom Wash
+ Honest Mineral Sunscreen Stick (SPF 30)
+ Honest Hand Sanitizer (only during flu season)
Front medium compartment with two packing cubes:
+ Spare set of season-appropriate clothing in mesh packing cube
+ 4-oz OXO Tot Baby Blocks Freezer Storage Container (+ healthy snack)* in insulated packing cube or under sippy cup in side pocket for quick access
+ OXO Tot On-the-Go Fork & Spoon Set with Carrying Case* in insulated packing cube
Front small zip pocket:
+ Spare iPhone charger
+ Adult-size snack, like an RxBar
+ On-the-go beauty essentials [including a mini manicure kit) in mama’s bag only (daddy just carries chapstick)]
Also in backpack:
+ Nursing cover* (my favorites are nursing cover infinity scarves, like this one by Mary B, which I still wear in late-fall, winter and early-spring even though Sydney is no longer breastfeeding)
+ Bumpkins Waterproof Sleeved Bib or Bumpkins Waterproof (Short-Sleeve) Junior Bib (replaced our newborn bibs/burp cloths when Sydney began solids)* in either the wet or dry compartment of Skip Hop Grab & Go Wet/Dry Bag as appropriate
+ OXO Tot Transitions Sippy Cup with water* (replaced a 3-oz Ultra Premium PPSU bottle with breastmilk/formula) in side pocket for quick access
+ Sunglass/eyeglass case in side pocket
Other items to include based on need or desire:
Pacifiers, favorite toys, board books or Indestructibles like this one
*when use of items are age-appropriate
New Parent Tip: Never leave home without extra diapers and a spare set of season-appropriate clothing because the inevitable diaper blow-out falls under Murphy’s law.
