What are important items for a diaper bag:

-Diapers: One diaper for each hour you plan to be out (you can never have too many).

-Wipes: Can be used for more than just wiping your baby's bum, they're safe on the hands for messes and spills. 

-Changing pad: They are reusable, easy to wipe down, and convenient to fold up. 

-An extra change of clothes for the baby: You never know when they are going to have an accident or spill.

-Bottles or cups: A tip for formula feeding moms, pre-portion each bottle with water so you only have to add formula when baby is ready to feed. 

-Hand sanitizer is a must! Quick and easy for on the go when there isn't time to wash your hands. 

-Snacks: It is always a good idea to have something for your little one to munch on.   

-A light blanket: You can never predict the temperature; also works great to block out light when baby is napping in the stroller.

- A nursing cover for breast feeding mamas.

-Small toys: To keep your little one entertained.
