What to put in a diaper bag for newborn children is not that much of a difference on what to pack for a one or two or three- years old. The key is to have what you need ready for a camping or an outing. You have to have lists so you are not going to forget anything and you have to recheck it.
It is also advisable that after using your diaper bag, you have to right away restock it, so that you can right away grab it in cases of emergency or urgent trips. That way, you do not have to be stressed on what to put in your nanny bags.
The care of the newborn is very delicate, since they just come out in this world and their body is still adjusting and developing because it is different from the womb they have been. Their organs are not yet develop, so extra care is very necessary.
The number of things that you have to keep depends on the number of hours or days that you are out of the house with your baby.
Here are some of the things that you need to pack for your infants that are very much needed:
What to put in newborn children diaper bags:
- Diapers– if you are going out for a day, bring at most 5 diapers (including the extra). If the baby’s sleep is disrupted because he or she voided and you cannot replace it right away, her or his growth might be stunted.
- Mini hamper bag– some of the bags have already disposal pockets or bags inside, but just in case your diaper does not have it, then bring one or two. This is needed since you are not going to let the fresh clothes be mixed up with the soiled ones. So you have to separate them.
- Baby Wipes and Tissues– you can carry by packs or by boxes, depends on your preference and which way you can access it better.
- Bib– bring one or two of this so you can protect the clothes from being soiled when breastfeeding the baby or bottle feeding.
- Small rag or towel
- Lightweight blanket
- Changing pads– some nanny bags have built-in changing pads, but if it is not there, bring one or two.
- Rash cream
- Set of clothes
- Milk formula in a bottle if you are not breastfeeding
- Emergency medications– make sure that you consult your pediatrician first for these medications for the correct dosage and timing and this would also include contact details of your pediatrician.
- Breast pads, water and breast feeding cover– If you are breast feeding, you need pads to keep your breasts dry and you need plenty of water to hydrate yourself and for your milk production. Most of the mothers are not comfortable in showing their breasts when feeding especially in public, so the breast feeding cover would just serve its purpose.
