Ask the Moms: What are your three elsentials when leaving the house with your kids?

What three things do you always have with you when you’re out and about with your kids?

I’ll assume that we all have our keys, wallet and cell phone with us at most times, so let’s not include those.

For me, with a little baby, I really don’t need a lot. My top three essentials are :

  1. Blanket– A multi-purpose item really. Block sun, block the wind, cover up if you’re cold, wipe up some spit up maybe, lay on surface for diaper change, snuggle. We get real creative around here.
  2. Diapers- Not really, I just think I have to include this since I have a newborn. But unless know we’re going to be gone for a while, I don’t bring diapers with us. I also don’t really use the diaper bag.
  3. Chapstick- for me obviously! My little one doesn’t need a lot right now, but if mom get’s chapped lips and doesn’t have chapstick with her, she is one grumpy lady.

What are you top three essentials?!

  1. 1.My Petunia Picklebottom Diaper Bag, it’s my purse too!! (and with three in diapers…i NEED it)

    2.my wetbag. because i’ve forgotten it before, and that sucks.

    3.my lipgloss. i love lipgloss!!

  2. 1.) Diapers, obviously.

    2.) Burp cloths. Matty has reflux and they are absolutely necessary

    3.) Pacifier, even though you hate them. Sure they look stupid, I’d rather look at a million of them than one crying baby.

    And I so hear you about the chap stick. I found a jumbo tube that looks more like a glue stick and it is my best friend.

    Besides Mr. Paci.

  3. 1. Diaper bag (full of essentials, like diapers, wipes, a binky, a sippy cup, crackers etc.)

    2. Military I.D. without which I couldn’t get home!

    3. Car baby, Emmie’s doll that goes everywhere in the car with us.
