Summer is my SEASON. Growing up in Botswana where it is hot for the most of the year makes me LOVE this season so much. I like to spend my time outside exploring or swimming and since I prefer babywearing over using a stroller, my diaper bag has to be functional for both my partner and I.
I am a fan of multi-purpose items and the Kavu Rope Bag works great for us because its spacious, with multiple pockets and has one strap, which is perfect for me when I carry my daughter on my back. It fits all my essentials that and still has room for more items.
Bag of wipes in reusable wipe bag. We cloth wipe at home, but use disposable wipes on the go.
A wet bag to store dirty diapers
2 pocket cloth diapers. I prefer pocket you because I can adjust the absorbency and its still a simple snap and go diaper.
A changing mat, because we go places that don’t always have a safe changing table.
A change of clothes, homemade sunscreen, some diaper cream and hand sanitizer.
Daniel Tiger never fails to put a smile on my daughters face so we almost always have a DT book and one other toy to keep her amused. A Kid Kanteen bottle for her water, burp rag and my wallet which has a pen, cards and chapstick and thats it!
My diaper bag changes with the seasons. I add warmer clothes in the winter and I rotate out her toys weekly too. Not pictured is my water bottle and hat that I shove into the bag when it is sunny too.I don’t like to be weighed down by unnecessary items so I’ve streamlined the bag to the necessities and it works for us.
