Pampers Pure Disposable Baby Diapers

LOVE these diapers. Many mainstream disposable diapers contain toxic chemicals and fragrances which have been linked to a ton of health problems so I commend Pampers for coming out with a diaper on par with the likes of Honest. For a newborn, a good rule of thumb is to bring a diaper for every hour or two that you’ll be out.

Don’t leave home without a portable changing mat! These come in handy whether you’re forced to change your baby on a park bench, in the trunk of your car or to cover one of the public restroom changing tables. This cute nylon clutch fits way more than you’d think. Not only is there a padded changing mat, but there’s also a wipes pouch with a sliding closure, room for diapers, a change of clothes and more.

Curasalve The Bundle

If your babe struggles with diaper rash, Curasalve to the rescue! I’ve long been concerned with the ingredients in my diaper creams so I was thrilled to find Curasalve that is natural and organic and free of all harmful and toxic chemicals that are found in mainstream diaper creams.

Cloth-eez Organic Muslin Diapers

The ultimate multi-purpose product! I’m pretty sure I had one permanently fixed to my shoulder in the first few months. Great for spit up and for drying your babe’s bum after a diaper change.

Planet Wise Small Wet Bags

For when you need to take a dirty diaper with you or a place to stash the evidence of a blowout. Ditch the plastic ziplock bags! These are great for storing soiled clothing and burp cloths so they don’t touch the other things in your bag…and they’re environmentally friendly!

I love this nursing cover/car seat cover/grocery cart cover all-in-one! I love a good two-fer but you get a three-fer with one product which means less stuff and two less things to carry!
