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!

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.

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.
