Win my diaper bag!

MUNCHKIN is giving away my diaper bag – and you could win it! Well, it’s not actually my diaper bag, because that would be weird, especially if we had to share. Instead, it’s brand new items just like what I have in my bag. Items I have tested, tried, tossed, and then culled down to a list of must-haves for every new mom.

So what’s in my bag? Here’s the list:

1. Munchkin Latch bottle
Even if you’re breastfeeding, I love keeping a Munchkin Latch bottle in the diaper bag, just in case I’m driving, forgot my nursing cover, or in a store with no where to breastfeed (or even sit). This makes it easy to feed your baby in a pinch.

2. Toy
I switch this up daily to keep him amused.

3. Gerber Puffs
Great snack baby can feed himself.

4. SkipHop diaper bag
I love all the pockets and that it’s unisex so anyone can use it.

5. Water bottle
For Mom, while out walking.

6. Starbucks gift card
For emergency caffeine fix!

7. BPA-free Silicone Teething necklace
You can wear this for baby to hold on to while breastfeeding. I didn’t, but my baby loved holding it himself to chew on while he was teething.

8. Sippy cup with handles
Makes it easy for baby to have a drink on his own.

9. Kate Spade mini notebooks
For jotting down to-do lists while on the go.

10. Onesies
You never know when you’ll need a full outfit change!

11. Huggies Clutch Clean diaper wipes pack
I love how pretty this clutch is, and it’s refillable!

12. Burt’s Bees oil
Great for dry skin — and Mom’s cuticles too!

13. Balloon
Blow this up and keep a fussy baby amused for at least 3 minutes.

14. Arm & Hammer diaper bag holder
Because lots of places do not want your dirty diapers in their trash – pop it in here, tie the bag and put it back in your diaper bag til you get home.

15. Teething ring
Baby can hold this one, and help hurting gums, too.

16. Clinique Chubby Stick Lip Balm
A little lip colour makes you look more rested – even when you aren’t.

17. Ihle’s Paste
My baby had a bad diaper rash for weeks – and this was the only diaper cream that got rid of it, and quick!

18. Spare socks
Didn’t you know it’s so funny to pull your socks off and throw them on the sidewalk?

19. Kushies waterproof bib with sleeves
Saves an outfit at every meal.

20. Hat
For those days you forget to grab one on your way out the door.
