Toddler Talk Thursday - Toddler Day Bags

Crazy About My Baybah

This weeks question is
What do you pack for a day out with your toddler?

I try to keep it really simple...and I mean REALLY simple.  With 3 kids age 4 and under, I just can't carry a whole lot out.  So the only things I make sure I have are diapers and wipes.  After that, it's hit and miss.  If I know we're going to be out during snack or lunch, I try and remember to pack some food.  Usually a bag of goldfish does the trick, and some water bottles.  Princess V and C will usually grab some toys to play with in the car, and that helps keep them entertained.  Oh and I usually bring a blanket for Princess R in case she needs to eat (still nursing her), or if we go to a park she can play on it.  Reading someone else's list this morning made me realize I should probably keep a bottle of sunscreen in the bag too.  With Princess C's fine hair she burns easily.  Even with this crazy weather we've had, she's gotten pretty pink on her scalp because I forgot the sunscreen. 

Next weeks topic suggestion - how do you decorate your home, with toddlers in mind?

  1. For your little one, I'd suggest a nice cute sun hat for her head instead of sunscreen! Here, check out my Sun Safety Article I wrote last year, it's a wonderful resource on choosing toxin free sunscreen and being safe in the sun without using harmful chemicals :)

    Can you believe one time I forgot diapers when we went on a weekend trip?! That was a mess! I had some prefolds in the car as emergency dipes so we lasted the trip to the other city then had to buy spoosies! Baby girl got a bad rash so I hand washed her cloth diapers so she had enough for a day then. Not a pleasent experience, i think i need to make a checklist for when I go out! lol
