The 7 Things in our Toddler’s Diaper Bag


JuJuBe BFF Diaper Bag from Baby Cubby

Knowing that we’ll have another baby joining us early next year, I decided I really, really wanted to try a backpack diaper bag! I ordered the JuJuBe B.F.F Diaper Bag because I’ve heard good things about it. The only negative feedback I read was it’s a little small — which I felt was a good challenge for me because we always end up with wayyyy too much in our diaper bag. Challenge Accepted.

What do we keep in our diaper bag for our toddler?

  1. Diapers + Wipes
  2. Diaper Rash Cream
  3. Sun Screen/Bug Spray
  4. Bib
  5. Snack(s)
  6. Leak-Proof Sippy Cup
  7. Extra Outfit + Socks

Aside from being a backpack, the other feature that sold me on a JuJuBe bag is that it has a “mommy pocket.” It has a pouch for your glasses/sunglasses, a clip for your keyring, and 3 other pockets to keep your things organized. Since I’m a working mama, I leave Blaire’s diaper bag at daycare with her, so I don’t leave my wallet in there (if it’s a weekday!) but you better believe I am super excited not to carry around my purse AND a diaper bag on the weekends… which is when we do most of our shopping and errand-running anyways. ;) 

What do I keep in the “mommy pocket?”

  1. Chapstick
  2. Lotion
  3. Hand Sanitizer
  4. Wallet
  5. Cell Phone
  6. Bandaids

    Great list! I finally got a backpack style diaper bag after over a decade of parenthood. Can’t help but wonder why I didn’t do it sooner!

  • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome
  • Happy Halloween! 🎃 👻 #blaireandben

  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
