Diaper Bag Checklist: Everything New Mothers Need to Pack

As a new mom, you want to be prepared for whatever might come your way. Whether it's the baby spitting up all over his new outfit on the way to have newborn pictures taken or a temperature that requires Infant Tylenol when you're staying in a hotel at 3 am.

One of the best ways to ensure you're prepared for everything as a new mom is to have a diaper bag checklist when you go to fill your Omaha diaper bags with diaper bag essentials. In this blog, we'll give you a few tips on what you should carry in your diaper bag pack when traveling with babies.  

Bottles and Feeding Supplies

When it comes to packing a diaper bag, the one thing you don't want to forget is the bottles and feeding supplies. But, of course, this doesn't just mean the formula and bottles that you need to feed your newborn; it also means bottle brushes, bottle warmers, and bottle sterilizers as well. 

If your little one is old enough for baby food, make sure to pack a few jars of that as well so that you have plenty on the road and at the hotel. 

A Few Changes of Clothing

Whether you're going away for the weekend or just overnight, you're going to need a few changes of clothing for the baby. When packing baby clothes, make sure to take a couple of sleepers, three or four outfits, and any other clothing you think you might need. 

Babies need to be changed numerous times in a day, and you never know when an accident will happen, and the last thing you want is to have to find a place to wash clothes when you're out of town. 


Babies get diaper rashes and develop fevers in the middle of the night. Make sure you pack Infant's Tylenol, diaper rash creams and ointments, and teething gels in case the baby is teething and apt to be cranky. 

This is where a diaper bag checklist comes in handy. Type up and print out the checklist before you pack for your trip, then check each thing off as you add it to the diaper bag, so you know you haven't forgotten anything in your rush to get out the door the next morning. 

Disposable Changing Pads

Nine times of 10, you're going to have to make pit stops to change the baby. But, of course, you don't want to put your baby on the changing tables in public restrooms.

You can avoid this by packing disposable changing pads in your diaper bag so you can change the baby easily and have peace of mind in knowing you're keeping germs away from your baby.
