Hospital Bags: Part 1-The Diaper Bag

With the nursery renovation done, and a sense of normalcy returning to my home, I have finally gotten my shit together and put this baby planning into overdrive.  First off-packing the hospital bags.
As I knew that cloth diapers would take up a bit more room, I opted to splurge on a very expensive JuJuBe Be Prepared diaper bag.  
This is the largest diaper bag of the JuJuBe line, and is recommended for parents of multiple children diapering.  After purchasing this bag, I worried that it might be a little too big. After packing it, however, I am glad that I went big!
So what did I put in the diaper bag?  Take a look.
1. 24 Thirsties Fab Wipes
2. Wipes Solution
3. 4 Bummis Diaper Covers
4. 24 Bummis Pre-fold Diapers
5. 1 package Diaper Liners
6. Planet Wise Wet Bag
7. 6 Disposable Newborn Diapers
8. 2 sample packs of Disposable Wipes
9. 4 Unisex Onesies
10. 4 White Onesies
11. 4 Unisex Sleepers
12. 1 Baby Hat
13. 1 Set of Mittens/Booties
14.  4 Receiving Blankets
15. Vitamin D Drops (not pictured)
16. 1 Girl's Take-home Outfit (not pictured)
17. 1 Boy's Take-home Outfit (not pictured
So after trying time and time again to get everything in the bag, I realized that it was not going to work.  I opted to only put half of the wipes and half of the pre-folds into the bag, and take the rest in another bag just in case we are at the hospital long enough to warrant 24 diaper changes.
Next up-my bag!


  1. Holy smokes! You'll probably find you packed WAY too much but better to be over-prepared than under-prepared! I probably packed the same amount for the 1st baby and the 2nd baby had maybe 1/5 the stuff!

    1. I think that I probably packed way too much as well..but I'd rather be more prepared than not prepared enough. I will likely bring most of it home untouched.
