This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Tampax Radiant at Walmart. The opinions and text are all mine.

My diaper bag got an organizational face lift since Iris was born. I’m an overpacker in general, and when I just had one kid, I had plenty of room to overpack my diaper bag. I packed it with everything I could possibly need (baby body wash, lotion, etc) because I was worried I might need something and not have it. But in order to fit everything needed for two under two, plus for myself, I’ve realized I need to be more laid back and take a minimalistic approach to packing my diaper bag. Also, I recently got this Freshly Picked backpack diaper bag (thank you Grandpa for the baby shower gift!) and it is a life changer! If you have multiple kids, you really need a backpack diaper bag to be hands free to handle them.

FOR THE BABY:

Diapers + wipes: I keep about 4 diapers and a small container of wipes, plus the munchkin trash bags stocked at all times. I also keep more diapers and wipes in a container in my car in case it’s one of those days where she has a lot of wet/dirty diapers.

Changing Pad: My diaper bag came with a changing pad so I keep it in there.

Onesie: You never know when a blowout will happen so I always keep and extra onesie with me.

Diaper Rash Cream: This is actually used for both the baby and toddler. It isn’t something that I use daily but I like knowing I have this in case my poor babes get a diaper rash when we’re out and about.

Covered Goods Multiple Use Cover: I love items that can serve multiple functions and this is just that! It’s lightweight and doesn’t take up much room, and can be used as a nursing cover, carseat cover, or shopping cart cover.

Wildbird Ring Sling/Solly Wrap: I prefer the wrap for when they’re really tiny and the ring sling for when they get a bit older. The ring sling is definitely easier to throw on when we’re running errands.

Bottle + Formula: I’m still breastfeeding but I struggle with my milk supply, so I have to supplement with formula.

FOR THE TODDLER:

Water + Snacks: I keep water in this thermos bottle with a straw and lid so it doesn’t leak all over. Some of our favorite snacks to keep on hand are yogurt raisins and That’s It bars (I like to snack on them too).

Toys: The toys in the diaper bag only come out when we’re at a restaurant or doctor’s office or somewhere we need to keep her occupied so she doesn’t get bored.

Diapers: I know I already mentioned this but since my toddler isn’t potty trained, I also keep diapers in my bag for her.

FOR MAMA:

Wallet: I can’t leave home without my wallet.

Tampax Pocket Radiant Tampons: Even though I’ve been pregnant and now nursing and haven’t had a period in 10+ months, I always have tampons with me. Especially now because I don’t know when my cycle is or when I’ll start my period again. I like the Tampax Pocket Radiant Tampons from Walmart because they are small in size so they don’t take up a lot of room in my bag, but they still have amazing LeakGuard protection. Plus, the package is super cute and it’s resealable which makes disposal of the tampon easy and discreet.

Thieves Hand Sanitizer: I don’t want to spread germs to my babies.

Lipstick: I rarely find time to put my lipstick on before we leave the house, so I’m always putting it on in the car.

XO, Kacie
