Five years ago, when I was a new mom, I carried everything and anything in my bag. I had a big tote and you bet your boots that thing was FILLED. TO. THE. BRIM. with toys, diapers, wipes, seven outfits, five burp cloths… you name it, I had it. I was like Mary Poppins or Hermione Granger, except instead of the cute small magic bag, I had a huge bulging tote that gave me back problems.

Now that I’m a third time momma and I have to carry crap around for a big kid, a toddler, and a newborn, I have scaled down SIGNIFICANTLY. Since I have to focus and tend to three different kids, with three different needs, I can’t be carrying a huge bag. You never know when mom’s gonna need to snatch an arm, run, or need to clean up a mess. Here are my 3rd time momma essentials!
3 Toddler Diapers
8 Baby Diapers
Wallet (The blue wallet is an RFID blocker for your cards since I'm terrified of my identity getting stolen!)
1 Onesie (because... blow outs.)
antibacterial spray (lol, toddler life.)
My diaper bag has become an extension of my soul so it’s incredibly important for me to have a bag big enough to carry my stuff and the kids stuff. Call it shallow, but it’s equally if not more important to have a CUTE diaper bag that will go with my outfits. I use the Vilah Bloom Café Crossover. It’s versatile to fit your needs – you can carry it as an over the shoulder tote, a hands free backpack, or a cross body messenger. All Vilah Bloom bags have a wipes dispenser so you don’t have to go digging for wipes. It also has an included changing pad so I don’t have to bring my own!
