What's In My Diaper Bag? | 2 Kids Under 2

Hey y'all! Today I'm sharing what comes with me on the rare trips I take with my 2 kiddos!

Seriously, I hardly ever go out anymore. It takes longer to gather my things, buckle the kids and get out the door than it does to make the actual trip!

But on those few & far between occasions when I do brave the world with a toddler and a newborn, this is what I bring in my arsenal:

This cute handbag retails around $100 but I scored mine at TJ Maxx for only $40! I thought for sure when I bought it it had to be a true baby bag, but no! Olivia + Joy does make a baby bag, and this isn't it.

The Zip Zoom Tote features a slick, wipeable exterior and open side pockets perfect for stowing bottles and sippy cups. There are 2 smaller zippered pockets in the front and another long skinny pocket above that. The inside "main" compartment has a narrow sort of pocket that's perfect for slipping in a changing pad and plenty of space for all your other goodies!


Mommy Goodies || Lots of lippies, hand sanitizer, and a spare car key (because mommy brain, amirite?)



More Mommy Goodies || More lippies (are we really surprised?), some hair emergency necessities, and a rollerball for fragrance touch ups. I also keep a compact mirror and an eyelash curler for makeup refreshes.



Sunnies for me and my girl + headphones for long car trips



The left hand little pouch keeps the kids' spare clothes and the right keeps some first aid type items. I also carry a travel size lint roller, spare nursing pads and lots of spare pacifiers. 


We don't go anywhere without an extra outfit! I also like to carry a bib and mittens for Parker in case I need them.


In my first aid clutch I carry mini toothbrushes and tic tacs, band aids, cough drops, feminine products (a must) and a few different pills.


This Skip Hop Pronto portable changing pad is a lifesaver. I toss it in the bottom of our stroller all the time and it saves me having to bring the whole bag with me. In it, I carry diapers for both kids, wipes, diaper rash cream and hand sanitizer. It unfolds into a changing pad! I also keep my keys, wallet, check book and a spare blankie tucked away in there. Usually my nursing cover and an extra burp cloth get rolled up in the center compartment as well.

For Lucy I keep a wipeable bib, a spoon, face wipes and a snack. You never know when you might need a baby spoon, and these fruit squeeze pouches are the best for when you're on the go and can't stop for lunch on time, or just as a healthy alternative to sides at a restaurant.


And, of course, lots of toys and books. We love to take quieter toys with us for church when Lucy doesn't go to nursery or just in places like the doctor's office where playing quietly is encouraged ;)

What kind of goodies do you take in your diaper bag? Do you have separate bags for each child or lump it all together like I do?
