having a baby or a toddler brings a lot of new challenges with it and for me one of them is leaving the house. I always feel like I need and extra hour to plan ahead and pack all the things and when I am on the way I am in constant fear of forgetting something.
But now with Summer time rolling around there is even more stuff to pack and it is not so depending on the places you go. It is the hot climate and several things to be aware of.
For my summer diaper bag edition I added lots of things into my bag I am going to share with you in a while but let´s have a look at this adorable bag first. The brand is called ahdorned and their website offers so many different prints and colors you might take a while to choose from.
I have first seen the shopper bag on Jackie Giardina from Living after Midnite and immediately thought it was stunning plus it checked all my boxes. It is huge (great to use as a travel/mom/diaper bag), it is made out of neoprene material (makes it super easy to wipe clean) and it is under 100 Euro (who wouldn´t want that).
Things to add to your diaper bag – Summer edition
Snack Cup // Toddlers snack all day everyday and this cup from Nip doesn´t loose a single thing and she can reach in nicely.
Bottle // We take her tea or water in this Philips straw bottle with us whenever we go out.
extra outfit // There are lot´s of opportunities why a toddler would need a new outfit but number one in the Summer months are the water fountains everywhere.
wet bag // In case the upper thing happens but also amazing if your baby has a blowout. It also seals in smells.
towel // In case the upper thing takes place.
toys // I always make sure to pack some toys and stuffed animals to keep her occupied in case we need to wait somewhere or are sitting down for a meal.
instant cool pack // This hasn´t been on my mind at all until I read an article about insects especially bees in parcs. Walking around and exploring the world and especially having no fear isn´t the best combo to meet a bee or wasp. These cool instant when you squeeze the packaging. Great for Summer picnics or trips.
plaster // Emilia falls a lot and mostly hurts herself and bleeds a little. She doesn´t mind at all but a plaster kees the dirt out of the wound.
sun hat // There is no excuse for a toddler to not wear a sun hat out in the sun. It is very important.
sun lotion // We are using the Hipp sunspray with SPF 50 for Emilia. It has great test reviews and I am very happy with it. It is on the pricier side but at least it is safe for our child.
burp cloth // I used these as a blanket in the Summer when she falls asleep in her stroller or even as sun protection in the car window.
diapers / wipes / lotion // Number one things I always carry with me.
disposable changing mat // I added these to our diaper bag cause many restaurants don´t have changing tables at all or the oldest crappiest changing mats and I don´t want my child to lie on there.
hand / face wipes // Very important after every dish or you will have every fly and bee around your toddlers face plus I really hate sticky fingers.
extra bottle of water // In case she is extra thirsty and her bottle isn´t enough I throw a small bottle of water into my bag.
I hope I haven´t forgotten anyhting. If it is the case I definitely add it to the list. So much to take with you with a little child. We are going on our first vacation with Emilia this Summer and I am anxious about packing. I don´t want to pack the whole house but I also don´t want to forget anything. Definitely working on a packing list cause I am that type of person.
Hopefully you have enjoyed your holiday today. We went to the local swimming pool today and it felt like vacation.
See you tomorrow.
