The diaper bag, simplified.

Looking for the best diaper bag can be overwhelming. There are so many different options out there that you feel like you don’t even know where to begin. We wanted to make it easy for you! We found the best diaper bag and we wanted to share it with you.

The company is called Citi Babies. Founder, Maria, is a wife, athlete, and mom of two boys. She knows the daily struggle of what it is like to be a mom on the go!

After our son was born, my husband Todd and I struggled to find quality, minimalist baby goods at affordable prices. We seemed to be faced with two choices: Beautifully designed, elegant goods with an eye-popping price, or cheaply made goods with busy patterns in garish colors. So we set out to design a line of quality baby goods that were modern, minimal and functional at prices that left some money for college savings. After months of design work and establishing trusted makers, Citi Babies was born.” - Maria

    Now that we have our diaper bag, here are the essentials that you should have in it.

    The truth is that when you become a parent, you will realize that you don't have everything figured out. After all, your baby keeps surprising you every single day and you just need to make sure that you accommodate all their needs.

    However, there is one thing that you can control - the diaper bag. You know how important it is. After all, this is where you can take everything your baby might need.

    Although there are many more items that should be included in your diaper bag, we wanted to make sure that we listed the top 5:

    #1: Ziggy Baby Muslin Swaddle Blanket

    You never know if you might need it to cover yourself in case you're still breastfeeding, as a stroller cover, a blanket, among many other things. This is one of the few items that is really crucial to bring along because they are incredibly versatile.


    #2: Ziggy Baby Burp Cloth

    This is an essential to have on the go for teethers or drooling babies. They can be turned into a cute burpy bib for babies or newborns in a snap. They are functional and fashionable for both baby boys and girls.


    #3: Pacifier & Ziggy Baby Pacifier Clips

    Not all babies use pacifiers, however, in case you decide to offer a pacifier to your baby make sure that you keep one in your diaper bag.

    For the little ones who still can’t hold them well, make sure that you also keep a Ziggy Baby pacifier clip to prevent it from falling and getting dirty!


    #4: Diapers, Wipes And Baby Rash Cream

    For the most obvious reasons, you just can't leave home without these items. They are all necessary when your baby needs to pee or poo. However, soon you will realize that taking one diaper is simply not enough. While it may be for most of the time, your baby may be having one of those days that you just keep changing him or her. So, it's far better to be safe than sorry. You should always carry about six diapers in your diaper bag. Wipes should also be included, but you can use them for a lot more than simply cleaning your baby’s bottom. You can use them to blot spit up, to wipe off a runny nose, or to simply clean up dirty feet, hands or knees.

    If your baby needs rash cream, be sure to pack that as well.


    #5: Change of Clothes

    Accidents happen, and you need to make sure that you have another outfit for your baby. So, make sure that you pack pants, a top, a onesie, and a pair of socks. Most days, you likely won't use any of them, but you know what they say - it is better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it!
