What’s in my diaper bag? Well, that’s a loaded question. Because…… I load that thing up! I’ve found that there are some things I always need + I carry those. I try to be prepared to face the day + situation with ease the best I can. Diaper bag goals = ease. I’m sharing here what helps me find ease, peace in the motherhood moments + some happiness too. It’s all in my diaper bag.
When my son, Bowan, was first diagnosed with life threatening food allergies, I was so overwhelmed + honestly… depressed that I would now be responsible for always carrying epinephrine, everywhere. I’d also be responsible for choices that would keep him safe from his allergens. Talk about pressure. I remember crying for a few days when I realized I’d never be able to just run to the park again without a bag or purse, because I would need the epinephrine everywhere. Even in our neighborhood. I was. So. Overwhelmed. Over the years, carrying the epinephrine has become second nature + I’m so thankful that we have great products available to make managing life with food allergies a little easier.
I love the Vilah Bloom diaper bag because it can be worn as a backpack, which makes the treks to the park so much easier. It’s also make with vegan leather + has a front dispenser for wipes.
I love all of the California Baby products. They are top 8 free + cruelty free. The sunscreen stick + aroma sticks are some of my favorites, I’m always hauling them around. The first California Baby product I ever bought was 8 years ago, when I was pregnant with my oldest son, Breck. I was so excited to use the bubble bath with the adorable bubble wand. Still using it 8 years later!
I love to carry around Janie and Jack bow ties, because…. Just in case! I also love the newsboy hats to help keep the sun out of the eyes.
I’m telling you, I load my diaper bag up. I’m known for hauling around trash trucks, mini garbage trucks + mini toy trash cans. Breck, Bowan + Bridger love the Driven Garbage trucks. I’m always carrying around a notebook or two, hoping I will have a few minutes to make a few notes or write a new list. I love the Rifle Paper notebooks, the beautiful patterns inspire me + my notebooks always seem to come complete with scribbles from my kids. I also love the Logan + Lenora wet bags, I use one to carry my camera. I love the Oh Joy! first Aid case for the epinephrine. Since I have to carry them around, I will do it with a happy pattern.
