Every parent knows the struggle is indeed real when it comes to the sticky black hole that is your baby's diaper bag. You know it must've been clean at some point, perhaps when you received it at your baby shower, but you have no clue what the actual bottom of the bag looks like now. The breakdown would probably be something like this: 10 percent parts to things you no longer own, 20 percent half-eaten snacks, 30 percent out-of-season clothing, and 40 percent unidentifiable mass of trash, goop, and regret. Sound familiar? Then you might need some diaper bag hacks.
Even if you have transitioned from the "bells and whistles" designer-type baby bag you swore you absolutely needed on your registry to something a little more practical (i.e. whatever tote-like thing you manage to grab that day), it can still feel like a circus act trying to get some semblance of organization achieved. From knowing what exactly counts as an "essential" item and how to get the most out of its contents, to clever ways to pack and things you didn't even know you needed to know, there are some truly game-changing hacks and tips out there for any parent that uses a diaper bag.
