Other than the expected items such as diapers, wipes, bottle, and toys, here are the items that I added to my bag.
1. A warm change of clothes that emphasizes layering.
I have to be able to take clothes on and off Oliver constantly. He sweats profusely if he is even barely too hot. I put in his bag a hat, pair of socks, sweat pants, and a pull over sweat shirt. This way I can add to an outfit if it gets too cold outside.
If he is sleeping in his carseat and I don't won't to wake him to put on pants, I can throw a blanket over his legs. I keep a small swaddle blanket in my bag so things don't get too bulky.
3. A Wipe Case
I decided to put Oliver's box of wipes inside a separate wipe case to try and keep them warm. I tend to leave his diaper bag in the car when we go on errands and his wipes are already starting to get really cold. Hopefully the extra bag will give them some insulation.
4. Lots and lots of lotions
I get SOO dry in the wintertime. I have already noticed Oliver needing extra lotion at night with the change of weather. I decided to give us each something to help our dry skin. I am loving Nourish Organic products. I put their Argan Oil Balm and Body Butter in the diaper bag for me. For Oliver I added Honest Company lotions that I received in their sample pack.
I put a fix all lip problems EOS in the bag.
6. Gloves for mom
I'm usually not a big glove wearer, but I REFUSE to touch a cold steering wheel! I always wear gloves when I drive. I figured since I never leave the house without my diaper bag, I won't be without gloves if they are stored in my bag. This year, for errands, I am going with these simple black gloves from GliderGloves that have touchscreen capabilities. Nothing worse than having to take off your gloves to use your phone- other than touching a cold steering wheel! These work really well and are warm and cozy.
I'm a huge fan of EpiPens. Even though I carry this in my bag year round, I wanted to mention it here because I think they are so important. You never know what allergies your little one might suffer from, so it is a good idea to keep an EpiPen in reach until you can verify that your child is allergy free. If you don't know the benefits of an EpiPen, you can check out their website here.
