I received product from Freshly Picked to facilitate this post.  As always, all opinions are my own.

As kids get older, I love not having to pack as much in the diaper bag.  And then, once they have been completely potty trained for a few months, forgoing a ‘diaper’ bag completely can even be allowed on some outings.  Of course, having a fashionable bag that you can use long after infant and toddlerhood is always a good idea.  Plus, there are still occasions and day trips where you’ll want to have snacks or other essentials on hand even after the diaper stage.

So today, we’re going to discuss what items you should pack in your toddler’s diaper bag this Christmas.  Whether still in diapers or not, you’ll want to have a bag of essentials along for holidays so you avoid having to make any last minute crazy store runs.  Town has been nuts already starting in mid-November so I try to avoid stores completely during the month of December.  (Online shopping has SAVED my sanity!)

The Bag

First off, I want to share that my top choice for what I tote around my kids’ things in is the Freshly Picked Classic City Pack.  If you want something bigger and better than ever, this bag is it!  Perfect for keeping your life stylish and functional, this diaper bag is for Y-O-U.

The Freshly Picked Classic City Pack is a must have you’ll be using long after baby has grown!

1) Extra Change Of Clothes

Depending on where you’re headed, this may be a comfy outfit so your toddler can escape their dressy clothes after an hour or two.  Or, if a more formal event, it may mean a second, spare formal outfit.

But either way, it’s always a really good idea to pack a spare set of clothes.  A compromise would be an adorable dress that is perfect for comfy casual as well as dressier occasions.

So now introducing the newest addition to the Freshly Picked clothing line-up, the Cream Stars Babydoll Dress.  Made from the same super soft cotton french terry as before, but now with long sleeves to help you get through the Fall and Winter.  This adorable dress features a soft and relaxed fit your babe will love!   And it’s perfectly packable too!

2) Pack Extra Diapers Or Extra Undies

When younger, Holiday parties are the one time of year that we let our kids have juice.  Well, it took a bit to realize why our daughter would pee through her diaper and clothes like crazy on those days.  After it happened several times, I came to realize she pees a LOT more when she gets juice!  So we had to be more diligent about changing her diaper (or taking her potty) at least once an hour on those days.  Of course, we also started limiting the amount of juice we allowed too.

3) Snacks

One year, we went to a Christmas party expecting to eat lunch at 12:30.  It turns out that one family was late and we didn’t end up eating till almost 3pm!  That’s a LONG time to wait for little ones.  So from them on, I always make sure to have a couple easy-to-grab snacks in my bag.

4) Blanket

Again, no matter how old my toddler gets, I like to keep a muslin swaddle blanket on hand.  These soft, cozy blankets are super compact but offer an extra layer to keep warm in the carseat.  Or they are the perfect thing to snuggle up with if someone needs a nap.

5) Comfy Shoes

Dress shoes can pinch and hurt.  So having a spare pair of sandals or moccs to switch into is a must.  And my top picks come from Freshly Picked!

For years now, my kids have worn Freshly Picked Moccs.  They are so beautiful, such a high quality, and super comfortable.  So they are always a great choice to keep in the diaper bag.

    The bag looks like it goes with anything and looks really high quality. Could even be used as a regular bag.

    My great niece just turned 3 and she is in to big girl panties all the time. My niece started her life carrying a diaper bag that had to have weighted 20 lbs. She carried at least 5 outfit, and all the other stuff. The other day she dropped my great niece off for the day she handed me the bag. I could hold it with one finger! SHOCKED And she had some of things in there that you listed.

    I would use this as an everyday bag in an instant. It appears to be rather roomy.

    Gosh diaper bags have come a long way! This one looks so nice you could carry it anywhere and boy does it look roomy! I love the little dress so adorable your daughter looks amazing in it. Such good tips to bring a change of clothes and especially shoes and a blanket.

  • Peggy Nunn

    This is such a great bag. It can used for so many things. It is so big. I like all the zippered compartments.

  • Amber Ludwig

    Extra change of clothes…. so. much. YES! I swear anytime I venture out of the house without that extra set, I need them emergently…. of course. Mom luck right?! Better off just ALWAYS having them ready! I am loving the FP diapers bags! Both styles are so adorable and stylish!

  • Amelia Bayless

    This is great because now all I have is toddlers! And I’ve always admired these bags – so nice!

  • Lauryn R

    What a beautiful bag, I love that it is a fully functional diaper bag but doesn’t look like one! My youngest is 5 but I still bring extra clothes for her and her 6 year old brother, you just never know!
