Hi everyone! I wanted to show you which items I have in my diaper bag and why they are definitely a “must have”. I am excited to share a little bit about why I love each item and a bit about the brands. There are so many amazing small businesses for baby items and I love discovering new ones, so I thought you would too! Let’s take a look…
Logan + Lenora: Hobo Bag – Audrey Stripe
Let’s talk about this diaper bag! There are so many great features that I have to share, I am not even sure which one to start with. I love the fabric on this. The outer fabric is a poly canvas that is stain AND wrinkle RESISTANT! That is right, Mia can put her sticky fingers all over this bad boy, because it wipes right off. The inside has a waterproof lining which I think is a great idea for a diaper bag. This is the first diaper bag I have owned that has this, and let me tell you, it is awesome! It also fits a lot more than I imagined. When I first received it I was a little nervous about how narrow it was, but it can fit a lot! I probably could have fit about double what is in the bag today. If you pack for multiple babies or like to carry a bit more, check out their other Waterproof and Washable Bags for Mommyhood!
I think the best thing about this bag is how convertible it is. Not only can I use it as a diaper bag, but it is so fashionable I can wear as a purse and no one has to know it has diapers inside! Because of the stain resistant outer layer and waterproof lining, it is even perfect for the gym or beach. It is also totally affordable, only $35!

Softbums: Echo Veg-O-Matic and Omni Pansy
Softbums are of course hands down my favorite cloth diaper. Nothing compares! My husband and I tried many brands, but once we tried a Softbums there was no going back. They truly are one-size fits all. We love the slide-2-size elastic which can even be adjusted while they are on the baby. I don’t know of another brand that does this! They are also super trim and ADORABLE! Today we have the newest limited edition print – Veg-O-Matic in Echo and Pansy in Omni. If you aren’t sure what the difference between Echo and Omni are, click here. These are both great gender neutral prints and perfect for summer! We have them ready to go with a One-Size Bamboo Super pod (our favorite insert), already snapped in.

Softbums: Wet bag and Wipe Clutch in Cloud Nine
With cloth diapers, you also need a wet bag! I love that Softbums came out with coordinating accessories for their diapers! I wish every release had a matching wet bag! *hint hint* This print is Cloud Nine (of course I have the matching diaper). The small wet bag can hold 2 diapers and is perfect for wet clothes or wet swim suit as well!
I also love the Wipe Clutch! You can use disposable wipes or cloth wipes. We have even used this to hold beauty products, pens, and snacks! It is the perfect size for a reusable mini bag.

Earth Mama: Angel Baby Bottom Balm
I have heard amazing reviews about this product so I thought I would give it a try and ended up
loving it! This is a diaper cream that is very gentle and goes on very smooth. It is safe for cloth
diapers, which is very important in my house. We like to use a little of this every change, and it has helped prevent any diaper rashes. It is made with Organic Oils and Shea Butter and has been rated 1 on EWG’s Skin Database, which is the lowest hazard rating a product can achieve! WOW! I know some moms who also use this for scrapes, new piercings, and cradle cap! It doesn’t take up much room in the diaper bag, but is an item I never want to leave out.

Project Pomona: Eco Fit Grow with Me Jeans - Pink Grapefruit
Every time I pack my diaper bag I always have a spare outfit. Today I packed my favorite baby jeans, which I am so excited that I discovered! There are so many reasons why you have to try these. First, they are so cute and comfy! They have so many cute colors and the fabric is super soft and stretchy. It is lightweight but also very sturdy.
The coolest thing about these baby jeans are how adjustable they are! Just like Softbums one size diapers, they are also easy to adjust in size. The pants can easily be rolled up or down, depending on the height of the baby. The inside of the pants have charming fabric so it looks super cute when rolled! Most jeans don’t stay rolled, but these stick and stay, even while jumping and running. My favorite feature of this product is the adjustable snaps around the waste. Can you say hallelujah?! These jeans are a little higher priced than I normally would spend, but well worth it! Each pair has 3 pant sizes in one, which makes it more budget friendly. The only thing I wish Project Pomona Jeans had was more prints and colors! J

BirdRock Baby: Baby Moccasins - Champagne
Something else I always have to pack is a pair of shoes. My little one doesn’t like wearing shoes in the car, so we usually end up packing a pair. These moccasins are PERFECT for a diaper bag. They are so light weight and take up hardly any space. They are also super easy to put on and are so flexible that baby doesn’t even notice she is wearing shoes. They are also handmade from 100% genuine leather which means very sturdy with super soft soles! Of course they are adorable as well. Take a look at all of these Take a look at all of these options. I think Classic Mermaid or Wildflower are going to be my next ones!
Okay now that I have shared why I love these moccasins, I need to fill you in on how I feel about this company. I have been IMPRESSED. First, every time I email or reach out, I receive super-fast responses. They are so sweet and friendly every time I talk to them, I love it. They also have a lifetime guarantee on all of their products which is amazing. I don’t know of very many companies that offer this. Here is my favorite part about BirdRock Baby - for every pair of moccasins they sell, they feed a hungry child for one day through Feed My Starving Children. How cool is that!? As I mentioned before, I have used and searched for other baby moccasins, but I am so glad I found this brand.

BabyLit: The Odyssey Book
One thing we can’t leave the house with is a book (or few). My girls LOVE to read and look at all the pictures. One of our newest favorite book brands is BabyLit. Today we packed The Odyssey which has goofy monsters throughout the book. We also have A Little Princess and The Secret Garden (my favorite). These books are such good quality and the pictures are phenomenal. These sweet stories are a great way to introduce the little ones to classic literature.

Beauty by Earth: Body Sunscreen SPF 25
Another item you will want to include when you are packing your diaper bag is sunscreen! This Beauty by Earth Body Sunscreen is perfect to throw in your diaper bag. I love this product because it works for the entire family. I don’t have to have a separate sunscreen for my toddler or other kids, I can just throw this one my bag and am all set! It also has nice scent that isn’t strong or overbearing. Something I love about this brand, is if you don’t love it, they do have a 30-day 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee. But, I don’t think you will need to use that, since the product rocks!

Beauty by Earth: Organic Peppermint Lip Balm
The last item is one of my favorite products I keep in my diaper bag (and everywhere in my house). I first wanted to try this when I saw over 600, 5-Star reviews on their website, and I can see why! This peppermint lip balm is smooth and makes my lips look AND feel great. I love that Beauty by Earth uses 100% natural beeswax as well. This pack comes with 4 lip balms, which is perfect, because I have one in my diaper bag, night stand, office desk, and the baby claimed the last one! I can’t wait to try the other lip balms they have too!
