First, let’s talk about this amazing Coco & Kiwi diaper bag. I get so many compliments on this style. I’m a huge fan of monochrome and stripes. Not only is this bag stylish but it’s also so practical for mothers of multiples. It is huge on the inside with 9 different compartments, a changing pad, removable zipper pouch, stroller straps, and a long shoulder strap. Coco & Kiwi is restocking this bag on September 26 and the updated version will feature a backpack conversion which is genius. I’ve been using this bag daily for over 4 months now and it shows no signs of any wear of tear. It easily wipes clean and holds up so well.
Snacks/Drinks – This is a given. Kids love to eat, especially mine. As long as my kids are eating, I can pretty much get anything done that I need to. My bag is always full of pouches, raisins, puffs, veggie straws, juice boxes, sippy cups with water, and lollipops as a last resort. These organic ones are my favorite.
Thieves Spray – Made from Thieves essential oil and distilled water. I use this for everything even when I don’t have the kids with me. It’s a natural sanitizer that I spray on shopping carts, monkey bars, shared toys, public bathrooms etc. It also doubles as a general air freshener in case your mom van is smelling funky from old milk cups hidden under the seat 🙂
iPad – Have you ever tried going out to eat with kids at 6pm? Besides, Evelyn would probably die if she couldn’t watch Mickey Mouse.
Accessories – Evelyn always needs a blanket, pacifier, and a bow so people don’t think she’s a boy (which happens whenever she isn’t wearing something in her hair!) I keep these things and some small toys for both kids in my bag as well.
First Aid Kit – I use this kit which has everything we need in case of a park booboo or any of minor injuries. It’s super compact and includes over 50 different bandages, tweezers, burn & sting relief gel and more. For just over $10, do yourself a favor and get one for your pool bag, both cars and diaper bag. Kids and accidents go hand in hand! Moms to be: add several to your registry!
Miscellaneous – I have a small pouch that I keep toilet liners, tissues, chapstick, Tylenol, pens, cash & change, etc. You never know when your toddler will see a vending machine with 100 bouncy balls that he just has to have and sometimes you have to pick your battles! I also keep this cute scarf on hand in case I look down and realize I have toothpaste on my shirt (again). Did you know this is actually a nursing scarf? We are out of the nursing stage but I love how this scarf can transition easily into your wardrobe.
