Life with three sure has been an adjustment....but in all honesty, as hard as it is I wouldn't trade it for the world. Belle has completed our family and I can't imagine life without her sweet little self.
But now, when we go out, it's quite the production. I carry so much stuff with me that my husband has referred to my bag as a "Mary Poppins" bag...because I need ALL THE THINGS at all times. With three kids you never know what you'll need...and I like to be prepared.
Here's what I pack in our diaper bag:
Diapers! In multiple sizes.
A change of clothes for each kid
Extra hair bow (because you never know!)
Hair rubber band for mama
Straws (we always need a straw and never seem to have one...so I've learned to pack some with me wherever we go!)
Snacks. Snacks. Snacks. Our favorites are apple sauce packets, goldfish crackers, raisins, and granola bars.
Lollipops. For bribery purposes, obviously.
That's a lot of stuff. And as a mom of three I've tried my fair share of diaper bags. Finding the right bag can be so hard....thankfully I've discovered the perfect diaper bag by JJ Cole! It's cute, functional, holds all our stuff, and is easy to clean. All of which are must haves on my diaper bag list!
My bag is the JJ Cole Bucket Tote, which features 13 pockets (YES!!!), is water-resistant, and includes a changing pad, bottle cooler, and pacifier pod! It's functional, yet stylish. I wish I would have had this bag from the beginning!
Check out this super cute video below that I made of the girls and I using our JJ Cole diaper bag! Sadie packing and unpacking the bag is my favorite!
