about how the Lord freed me from fear and healed me from sickness.
I got more personal emails about this than I have ever received from this blog
and I am trying to thoughtfully reply to each one...so just know if I haven't gotten back to you yet, it's coming!
I have been blessed, encouraged, and honored to hear y'alls stories.
Also, I will be doing a "follow up" post in the next day or two to talk more about it all...
about digging into why your fear might exist and what has helped me.
but TODAY. I thought I'd lighten things up a bit with a random post....
about my diaper bag! :)
I always love learning how other mommies do things,
and seeing if they have thought of something I haven't (usually!)...
and i love sharing my mommy stuff too.
I thought I'd show y'all whats in the diaper bag I carry around for my two little girls!
And I'd love to know what you carry in yours!
(or do you even carry one?)
I knew I wanted this diaper bag before I was ever pregnant. (i know i know...such a girl)
And I had always told my mom that,
so it was one of my first gifts from her after we found out Abigail was coming!
(it is a Kalencom diaper bag - I LOVE their stuff and highly recommend it!)
When it was just Abigail, I carried this bag with me everywhere I went.
I think part of that was some first-time mom anxiety of not being prepared for something
(like a blowout or a hungry baby), but I was always prepared!! :)
but now that I have a whole other little person in tow,
I dont carry the bag on me everywhere, its just too much stuff.
a change of clothes (including panties for Abigail) for each girl.
I bag them up separately, so if I have to reach for it quick,
I'm not searching trying to figure out whose is whose.
snacks for each girly.
usually some puffs or yogurt melts for B, and crackers or fruit snacks for A.
I also always have a sippy cup of water for Abigail.
some toys for both, you just never know when you might need to keep them occupied. :)
(books, some "busy bag" activities for A, a few teething toys for B)
I also keep these awesome Arm&Hammer baking soda scented bags for throwing diapers in if we are out.
They completely take the stinch away.
I would bet you have been the victim of that terrible forgotten diaper that stayed in your car all night too. :(
So I will bag it in this if we are just out and about, but also even if I am just throwing it away somewhere, so other people don't have to smell the loveliness.
(and if either one of them has diaper rash, I will throw some travel-size diaper cream in the bag too.)
my nursing cover that my awesome friend Jess made.
and I also have a Hooter Hider, which I love...these are great gifts for new mamas!)
can't go anywhere without those!
Abigail only uses on at night now, but I still keep one on hand in case of "emergency".
I always stick the paci's in a side pocket of the bag, for an easy reach!
(you know that moment where its just all you can do to find that stinkin paci while your baby is screaming? stress. ful. )
And the usually put my phone in the other side pocket if I am carrying the bag.
I def try to carry some hand/face wipes, especially if we are not eating at home!
That's about it!
Probably twice a week, I get the bag out and re-stock or re-organize.
This is just one of the things I have found that keeps my head on a little straighter as a mommy of two littles. We need all the help we can get, right? :)
What's in YOUR diaper bag?
have a blessed day!!!
