Diaper Bag Checklist

To help make diapering on the go more manageable, we've listed some items we recommend you have in your diaper bag.

  • A+D® Original Ointment and A+D® Zinc Oxide Cream
  • Formula and bottles (extra disposable bottle bags if used)
  • Nursing pads (if you are breastfeeding)
  • One or two receiving blankets (include one heavier baby blanket if weather is cool)

  • One or two bibs
  • An extra pacifier, if used
  • A toy (to keep your baby occupied)
  • An extra set of clothes
  • Teething rings (teething pain reliever if needed), and other quiet play things

Just In Case

  • Antibacterial water-less hand cleaner for Mom or Dad

  • Consider powdered formula if there are no refrigeration accommodations at the destination, and if the time away from home is over two hours
  • Coppertone® Water BABIES® Sunscreen for infants 6 months and older
