What’s In My Fawn Design Diaper Bag

Happy Friday, Friends! I am so excited for today’s post because it’s something I’m asked all the time. What is my favorite diaper bag? What do I love about it? How is the material in person? I’m hear to say, I seriously LOVE (and I mean LOVE) my Fawn Design bags. I actually have two: a black and now gray. One of the biggest tips to any new moms or mom’s-to-be is to buy a diaper bag that converts to a backpack. Being hands free is a game changer! Also, I love bags that don’t scream diaper bag and bags that I can still carry as Ava gets older. If you invest in a good bag, you’ll get your monies worth and not feel like you need another bag.

Now on to what I carry in my diaper bag. The first couple months, I carried everything. I was ready for an Apocalypse. That also left me carrying around a 8 lb baby and a brick of a backpack. Around month 4, I moved towards only carrying around the essentials.

For Ava:

3-4 diapers
Wipes
Full bottle of milk
A change of clothes
A portable changing mat

For Myself:

Hand Sanitizer
Chap Stick
Cell Phone
Wallet

Yup, that’s it! I don’t carry a purse anymore because it’s just easier to have everything in one spot.

Fawn Design bags already have plenty of compartments, but they just partnered with another one of my favorite brands to create matching inserts into their bags. Check it out here.

Thank you to Fawn Design for sponsoring today’s post. While this was gifted, I truly LOVE this bag and use it every day.

Newborn + New Mom Essentials

The idea for this post came when I realized that I could have really used a post like this. As a new mom, you Google EVERYTHING. Every mom is different, just like every baby is different so some of these items might not be useful for you. As Ava will be 9 weeks on Friday, we have already purchased and exchanged a dozen items we purchased for her, so I figured I would share what works best for us. These are really just items we have used her first two months, so it won’t necessarily cover things like spoons and sippy cups. Lastly, this is also purely opinion!

38 Week Bump Date & Baby’s Hospital Bag

I can already hear the responses, “Hang in there! She will come when she’s ready,” “The average first pregnancy last 41+ weeks,” “She will be here before you know it,” “You’re only 38 weeks; the longer she’s in there the better off she’ll be.”

I get this. I do. I just want to hear, “Katelyn, you are having a baby right now!”
