THE PERFECT TOTE & DIAPER BAG
Town and Country Tote
This tote has the features I need in a diaper bag. It's just the right size, it has a zipper to keep everything inside and an organizational insert so you can find what you need during a meltdown...all without breaking a sweat. It has a very classic and timeless look. You can also get the bag monogrammed. Ours is hand painted! This is far from your average diaper bag. You can find the bag, HERE.

Bourdreaux's Natural Butt Paste®
I love Bourdreaux's Natural Butt Paste. Not only is the consistency thick enough for great coverage but it's not so thick you feel like you need to soak your hands to get all of the residue off. Charlie has only had one diaper rash in the last 18 months and I truly do believe this product has helped keep his bum healthy. I'm always very conscious of the type of products I use on Charlies's skin. The natural butt paste uses all natural ingredients including, soothing aloe, beeswax, and Peruvian balsam oil. It is FREE from: dyes, preservatives, parabens and talc.
Honest Company Soothing Baby Bottom Wash
Ford's poop does not smell yet but when it starts to this will go in his diaper bag! Have you ever changed your baby's poopy diaper but the smell just won't go away? There were times when my husband and I were actually checking our shoes and wiping Charlie clean 2-3 times because we could not get rid of the smell. Then we started using this soothing bottom wash. I'm not sure why it works so well but it does. It completely takes away the smell which is especially important when you don't have a bath tub handy. It's also all natural made with organic aloe, witch hazel, and botanical extracts, not to mention it has NO: SLS, sulfates, phthalates, parabens, fragrances, dyes, formaldehyde, MEA, DEA, TEA, or most common allergens. However, if your child has a bad diaper rash, I would NOT recommend spraying this on the area.
A few friends of mine introduced me to these over Christmas. They swear by them. We tried them out and I can see why. Boogie wipes contain saline. Saline dissolves snot and mucus! When infused into a moist wipe like Boogie Wipes, saline makes mucus easier to wipe away while remaining gentle enough to comfort stuffy noses. Because saline is natural and hypoallergenic, it can soothe even the most delicate skin without irritation.
Pamper Swaddlers, size 1
I am usually very good at staying organic/all natural but I couldn't find a diaper as good as these guys. I tried a bunch of brands that were just so stiff and non absorbent. These have been the best for our family. I recommend trying out a few different brands to see which ones work the best for your baby.
WaterWipes are my favorite wipes. A baby’s skin is much more delicate than your own, so it should be cleaned with only the gentlest and purest elements possible. WaterWipes are the only wipes made with just water, specially purified and softened, with a tiny drop of grapefruit seed extract. WaterWipes have been carefully designed to be gentle on babies’ sensitive skin. They are the only wipes that contain 99.9% water and a drop of grapefruit seed extract – a natural skin conditioner.
Extra change of clothes
I keep at least two change of clothes in our diaper bag at all times. I try and pick pieces that are easy to to throw on in public. Usually pieces without buttons.
Gathre Diaper Mat
I love the micro Gathre diaper mat. It is made out of bonded leather which is a luxurious material that is extremely soft. The bonded leather is water impermeable, regulates well in the heat and is stain resistant. The top surface of the mat is made with a synthetic layer of polyurethane. This allows for it to wipe clean easily and maintain high resistance to stains. The backside is a soft suede leather. This fits perfectly in our diaper bag and comes in a bunch of really cute prints.
