Being mom to an almost 5-month-old, and a 4-year-old, I have quickly realized the importance of ALWAYS being prepared! It’s something that I don’t think can fully be comprehended until you’re a parent… and we all have moments of being caught off guard. In fact, I experienced one of those last week: my husband had started making a bottle to pack for a grocery run, and both of us thought the other was actually packing it; so we left the house without any bottles! After about an hour of being away from home the baby started crying and we realized we had no food for him and he was in full melt-down mode! Luckily I had a pouch of vegetables that I ended up just squirting in his mouth. It worked, but boy did I feel like a terrible mommy!
One of the ways I try to keep on top of things is by making sure my baby bag is packed with pretty much everything I could possibly need. Keep reading to see what I always have in my bag!
