Going out with your little one is almost like going on a mini vacation. You need to pack the basic necessities, but also those extra items that you’ll probably never have to use, but would be great to have if you did. Some of the things for BabyM that I include in my ‘luggage’ are:
- Hand sanitizer
- Changing pad
- Plastic bags
- Bottles of formula/ fresh milk/ breast milk
- Sippy Cup
- Extra clothes
I prefer to limit the number of bags I bring with me, and I’m not a big fan of diaper bags as their designs tend to be utilitarian. Tote bags are great for stylish mommies who want the extra space but not the extra bulk. They are no longer just practical bags, but also stylish and elegant today. Many designers today are introducing tote bags that are practical, yet exquisite.
Unlike diaper bags, which often come with a number of compartments, tote bags usually have a single compartment for storing your items. If you’re worried about having a hard time finding things, a great way to organize your tote bag is to group your items in pouches. Etsy offers a good selection of cute diaper pouches. Both this and this are very cute. And here are a few tote bags that I’m currently eyeing. You can also find a number of reasonably priced tote bags at Zalora.
