It's In The Bag
Baby wipes or soap: Both are great for disinfecting baby, but also mom and dad's hands after diaper change time. Use organic, eco-friendly wipes like those developed by Method and Aveeno or soap from Kiss My Face.
Bottles and formula: If you're not breastfeeding, it's imperative to pack enough food for your little one.
Face cloths: From spit-ups to wipe-ups, face cloths will help keep you, your baby and their eating area clean.
Pajamas/change of clothes: It's inevitable that your little one will get their clothes dirty at some point, so keep them clean by bringing along a change of clothes. If you plan to stay out late, it's a good idea to pack pajamas as well [that way you can do the whole "bedtime" routine before you actually get home].
Diaper changing gear: Instead of asking for a blanket or rug for your little one to lie on during the changing process, be sure to bring a change pad. Bring disposable diapers. If you're the kind of mom who's into cloth diapers, opt for an eco-friendly version of the disposable kind [that way it can be tossed in the compost]. Diaper rash cream or petroleum jelly are also a must.
