What’s in my diaper bag?

As babies get older what you carry in your diaper bag changes! After switching things around I finally found a solution that works best for me.  I hated that my stuff was getting cluttered with Tripp’s stuff and I wanted a easier solution than carrying two bags.

A friend of mine recommended a back pack for Tripp when we use the the child watch at the gym and that is how the lightbulb went off in my head.  I keep everything of Tripp’s in his backpack and throw it in my big bag! So much better and easier to find what I need.

So onto the good stuff…Our bags:

diaper

Mine [Louis Vuitton]: Neverfull MM

His [Pottery Barn]: Pre-K size

products

Wipes [Target]

Diapers [Target]

Water Bottle [Bed Bath and Beyond]

Outfit [Carter’s]: Because accidents happen.

EOS [Target]: We both actually use this because it is so easy to use on him because he thinks it is a nipple! HA!

Sophie [Target]

Sippy Straw Cup [Target]

Snack Container [Buy Buy Baby] [with goldfish of course].  He also loves yogurt puffs! I linked a different product than what I have. My biggest complaint is there isn’t an air tight lid for mine and then one I linked has that!

Lipstick [Mac]

Hand cream [Bath and Body Works]

Granola [Target] because nursing moms are ALWAYS hungry.

Book [Priddy Books]

Rattle [Similar]

Sunglasses [RayBans]

Wallet [Louis Vuitton]

Gum [Target]

Empties

Hey everyone! One thing I am trying to get better about is using up the products I have before buying new things.  So I thought I would start compiling my empty products and then give feedback on what I like and didn’t like!

Nothing is off limits so these posts will cover makeup, beauty, baby, food…. and so on! Let’s get started!

gg

Physicians formula powder:  Great product.  I still lean toward lose powder because I break my pressed powders EVERYTIME.  I would still recommend this product.  It has good coverage and is great on sensitive skin.

Elf Eyeliner: LOVE LOVE LOVE this product and the price point.  And even though the container is small it lasted quite awhile! Thumbs up!

Huggies wipes: I love these wipes.  Are good at getting everything clean (both baby wise and baby mess wise) and I like that they are a little thicker. Thumbs up!

Up & Up wipes: This wipes did the job but I HATED the scent.  I would recommend unscented.

Hand Creme: Love having this on the go in my diaper bag.  They don’t have this scent [I linked a similar one] but I love how this creme feels and it seems to keep my hands soft! Thumbs up!

Bath & Body Works Soap: I LOVE their soap and I love trying different scents.  The foaming soap is my favorite but not for any particular reason.  Both of the scents were great [I also LOVE the lemon scents for the kitchen]. These soaps were one of the reasons I decided I needed to start using up product. When we moved I found about 10 half used soaps under our sinks… what can I say I like to change them with the seasons.  Thumbs up on these!

Pantene: I LOVE this shampoo [& conditioner].  Everyone always compliments how shiny and pretty my hair is when I use this.  AND IT SMELLS SO GOOD.  Thumbs up!

Babyganics Bubble Bath: This stuff smells amazing and Tripp LOVES it! Bath time was major with sleep training and playing in the bubble bath is a favorite of Tripp’s.  I think the scent also helps him relax.  Thumbs up!

Vitafusion Prenatal: Since I am still breastfeeding I take prenatal.  I love the gummies but I have had a few brands and these aren’t my favorite in taste but they still taste good.  However, for someone else they may be their favorite flavor.   Would recommend.

What are you favorite products you consistently use up?

Tripp- 9 month update

I am not sure where time has gone but here we are and Tripp is 9 months old!

He is crawling like a champ, pulling up and walking along furniture.  He will even take his hands off and stand solo for a few seconds.

He babbles like crazy and is quite the ham.  He LOVES food and we are still breastfeeding. I am so proud to say we have made it to 9 months! It hasn’t been the easiest journey but we have hit our stride (knock on wood).

We finally sleep trained and he is sleeping SO much better.  So this is one HAPPY mama.  Thanks to preciouslittlesleep, where I got my tips and tricks to take the plunge! And the training was so simple and went very smoothly.  He loves his straw cups now so the Doctor gave us the go ahead to say bye bye to bottles when we do feed him frozen milk.   You would think he would be a chunk with how much he loves food and milk but he is still just 18.5 lbs.  He is 28inches long and his head is in the 99th percentile (for all the brains!!!).

Tripp’s favorite toys are cars and he loves to tear up magazines. He loves bath time and anything that involves him getting to play outside.  Thank goodness we have had awesome winter weather here in Texas.

I cannot believe the next update will be at a year old.  Time flies but I love getting to see him learn and grow!

The photo below is from a fun little Valentine’s Day shoot we did. It took several goldfish and yogurt puffs to get this kid to sit still and cooperate for a few good shots. Love him so much!
