What's in my Diaper Bag

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.

Hey guys! I know I'm not the typical 'mom blog' and usually keep things more on the beauty and lifestyle end of things, but I thought I'd switch it up and share what's in my diaper bag! It's been a lot of years since I've had to carry a diaper bag or worry about which diapers are better, cheaper, or the most absorbent diaper. I've tried almost every brand out there and one of the better, inexpensive brands I've found is Parent's Choice from Walmart.

When we found out we were having a boy, I went in search of a diaper bag that wouldn't be too girly but I didn't want one that was so boyish either...I mean, I'm the one carrying it not him! Let me tell you, I didn't find a lot that fit what I was looking for but I did end up finding a really cute bag that even my husband isn't ashamed to carry!

What I keep in my diaper bag on the daily

Like I mentioned, it's been A LOT of years since I've had to worry about carrying a diaper bag or what I need to bring in that diaper bag. Also, I have found you carry different stuff based on a girl or boy. With my daughter I carried like 5 outfit changes and a ton of stuff I didn't really NEED to bring. With my son I keep it to a minimum so that I also have room for stuff that would normally go in a purse for me. Ain't nobody got time to carry two bags! haha

As far as what I carry for Asa, I keep it pretty simple. Food, bottle, change of clothes, diapers and wipes. I do have a changing pad that I also keep in the bag. I really don't want to be carrying a bag that weighs as much as Mr Man and he's getting BIG! So I really keep the bag nice and light. I don't even keep toys in the bag, I have some of those ring things that hook together and keep those with a binky and a couple toys linked on his car seat for now. We will see how that changes as he gets older.

Everything all in the diaper bag nice and neat!

I also have found that it's easiest for me to keep a carabiner hooked on the outside of the diaper bag to hook my keys on so I'm not searching frantically through the whole diaper bag to find my car keys...that has helped a ton!

So that's it!  The diaper bag is all packed for our super fun Labor Day shenanigans!  We are off to a 1st birthday pool party and then a BBQ at another friends house after that so we should have a great day!  I hope y'all have a fantastic Labor Day and get to spend some time with the ones you love.

Kids on YouTube

I'm sure there are a lot of opinions about kids having their own YouTube channels, or just putting kids on YouTube in general. I am of the opinion that if the child is mature enough to handle it, there is nothing wrong with it.


My 9 year old daughter is one of those kids. We created a YouTube channel for her to do videos of everything from DIY projects to beauty and hauls and everything else she might be interested in. She comes up with all the ideas for her videos and all I do is help to film and guide where she needs it. She is a natural in front of the camera, she's so charismatic and just knows what to say - I'm in awe of her!


We recently were asked to be interviewed by a local magazine for an article on Kids with YouTube channels and that was really a fun experience!

I'm excited to see where she takes her channel and if she keeps up with it as she gets older with more varied interests. We would love you to follow along and subscribe to her channel, if you have any requests for things you might like to see on her channel leave us a comment letting us know and we will be happy to create some of those videos.
