What's In My Diaper Bag? | Skip Hop Duo Double | Toddler Edition with Baby Additions

It's time to find out...What's In My Diaper Bag?  The Skip Hop Duo Double edition!  You can find my full review of the bag here but I wanted to show you what I pack for my 2 1/2 year old daughter.  I will also add the things I used to pack for her when she was an infant below.

Just a quick rundown: the Duo Double has 16 total pockets.  On the outside there are 3 front pockets, 2 side mesh bottle pockets, 1 changing pad pocket, 1 long skinny pocket next to the changing pad pocket, and 1 mommy pocket.  Inside there are 2 more bottle pockets, 2 large fabric pockets, and 3 mesh pockets with elastic tops.  I'm guessing the last one included is the whole inner pocket between all the others, where I put blankets and the Pronto Changing Station.

Here's how I pack the pockets...

3 front pockets - baby sunglasses, pen, Babyganics Foaming Hand Sanitizer
2 side mesh bottle pockets - water for mommy, Nalgene with water for BabyBeauty (formerly baby bottles with just water to mix Up & Up Sensitive Formula into - see below)
Changing pad pocket - changing pad and Munchkin Diaper Bag Dispenser
Skinny Pocket - empty, but would be good for a small umbrella
Mommy pocket - Burt's Bees lippie, Trader Joe's mints, gum, Neutrogena Powder Foundation

2 bottle pockets - sometimes the Nalgene for BabyBeauty goes here, otherwise empty
2 fabric pockets - MediBuddy First Aid Kit, Wet Ones Wipes, Up and Up Healing Ointment (Target brand Aquaphor), Boogie Wipes in Fresh Scent (when needed), Table Toppers in Hello Kitty, BooginHead Sippigrip
3 mesh pockets - Pampers Swadders Diapers (Regular or Sensitive),  sample size of Honest Company Healing Balm, Pampers Sensitive Travel Wipes or Seventh Generation Travel Wipes, Itzy Ritzy Travel Happens Wet Bag in Avocado Damask
Center/Bottom - Skip Hop Pronto! Changing Station, coloring book and bag of crayons

I normally keep the mesh pockets strictly diapers wipes, and change of clothes/wet bag.  The fabric pockets are broken into "feeding essentials" and "other essentials" (mostly med stuff, etc.  So you might see me mention I put certain things in the feeding pocket for reference so you can see how I organize or pack this bag so I know where everything is.

Infant Additions:
* Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Bottles and Formula Dispensers or Avent Classic Bottles and Formula Dispenser
* Aden and Anais Swaddle Blanket (rolled up in the bottom next to the Skip Hop Changing Station)
* Aden and Anais Burpy Bib (feeding pocket)
* Skip Hop Pacifier Pocket with two Avent Soothie or Regular, Nuk, or Tommee Tippee Pacifiers (pacipod)
*BooginHead PaciGrip Pacifier Holder (feeding pocket)
Oxo Tot On-the-Go Feeding Spoon with Travel Case or Nuk Spoons in Itzy Ritzy Snack Happens Reusable Snack Bag in Urban Jungle Blue (feeding pocket)
* Happy Baby / Plum Organics / Earth's Best Baby Food Squeeze Pouches (feeding pocket)
* Baby Mum-Mums (feeding pocket)
* Extra Set of Clothes in case of accidents (mesh pocket with wet bag)
* Tommee Tippee Travel Warmer
* Babyganics Mineral-Based Sunscreen 50+ (other essentials pocket)

All of what is in the bag plus all the infant additions fit perfectly with plenty of room to spare.  It's not a heavy bag when packed normally and doesn't add a lot of additional weight due to the heavy duty fabric or anything like that.  It's advertised for twins, multiples, or parents with more than one child.  Being a mommy who likes being prepared for everything and to see everything inside without having to move items to get at anything else this was a great option for me.  It's a great bag for one child on up!
