While cloth diapers are naturally thicker than disposables, packing a diaper bag doesn’t mean that you need a bag the same size as a piece of carry on luggage. In fact, you don’t even need a big diaper bag.
My first diaper bag was an average sized one, but for me it felt like I was carrying around a suitcase. I am not one for big bags or purses in general so I decided to get a Boba Pack to use instead. I’m not sure if you’ve seen one in person but it’s about the size and shape of a messenger bag. There are a lot of side pockets and places to hold things and it was perfect for me.
A typical day away from home consists of:
- 3-4 diapers
- extra inserts (if applicable)
- a large handful of wipes
- a small spray bottle of wipes solution
- a small wet bag tucked into a side pocket
- a jar of diaper cream
- a sippy cup in the side pocket (not shown)
- a change of pants, sometimes a whole outfit
It all fits wonderfully in this small bag. Using cloth while away from home doesn’t have to be bulky and complicated!
