Meet the Sullivans: Diaper Bag Essentials from Schue Love!

Diaper Bag Essentials from Schue Love!

Hi Ladies!  I'm Natasha from Schue Love and mama to Ethan, our sweet little son.  I love this series that Colleen put together!  I don't know about you, but any posts that can help me navigate this new "mom role" is always helpful.  So I hope this helps some of you!

Ethan is almost 8 months old and the above is what can be found in his diaper bag.  First things first, my diaper bag is not a "real" diaper bag, but a gym bag from lululemon!  I was drawn to this particular bag because it's not overly feminine {read: my husband doesn't mind carrying it} and it's multifunctional.  Surprisingly, it has a lot of the same compartments as a traditional diaper bottle holders on each side, tons of compartments for organizing and it's weather/liquid resistant.  

The only thing our diaper bag lacks, is the built in diaper changing station.  The easy solution was buying this adorable pad from Skip Hop.  It's portable and includes additional compartments to stash diapers, diaper cream, and wipes!

As for the eating department...I swear by the food pouches, particularly the Ella's Kitchen brand.  They're great for on-the go!  Just squeeze them onto a spoon or right into your child's mouth, like Ethan prefers these days.  We also love the Aden + Anais bibs to keep our little guy clean and swear by the Dr. Brown's bottles

We always have a change of clothes {or 5!} on hand and make sure to include socks and a hat in case it gets cold out.  Or for warmer days, some sunscreen to protect that sweet skin.

Last, these days, we can't go anywhere without the trusty pacifier.  Ethan prefers the Avent seems to be the easiest to keep in his mouth.  And with cold season, Boogie Wipes are a must!  Seriously, these are the best!  They're super soft on the face and effective too!  Boogies have no chance against these things.  Oh and, lots of teethers and toys!  Ethan loves chewing on Sophie...she's been a great toy over the last several months.

So there you have it...our diaper bag in a nutshell!

Thanks to Colleen for having me today!  Come on by and say hello some time!

I think we have all the same things! Ella's kitchen are our favorites, and I don't think we could survive without buggie wipes!

LOVE this list Natasha! And such a good series Colleen! My diaper bag is super organized now, but I have a feeling that everything will change once we start feeding our baby solids! So helpful to have the recommendations of other mamas!
