|My diaper purse|
I never really saw the point in carrying a huge diaper bag. I had a larger bag that I used when Evie was younger, but it was always half empty.
Now that Evie is a little older, we need more stuff with us when we go out, but I still haven't transitioned back to the bigger bag. I can still fit everything, so I haven't seen the need.
Now the essentials include:
Yogurt bites, puffs/cheerios, and a fruit pouch are necessities wherever we go.
Evie loves to look at books. These usually work to keep her occupied, but I often also have to give her my keys/sunglasses/anything from the shopping cart to appease her. (She threw her first big public fit on Sunday...awesome.)
Honestly, I think these are the least important things that I have in the bag. (Unless she poops, then they become the most important.) We aren't usually gone more than a couple of hours at a time, and I don't have to change her in public very often.
I'm interested to see what other moms have in their diaper bags during this week's Toddle Along Tuesday. Maybe they've thought of something amazing that hasn't occurred to me. :)
What's in your diaper bag?
