The name is actually a bit deceiving when you really stop to think about it: A diaper bag is responsible for so much more than just being a portable way to store your baby's nappies. While diapers (and wipes) are the number one priority — otherwise your kid might have to ride home in a makeshift diaper (true story: happened in the backseat of my car at a Target parking lot) —it's important to make sure you have other essentials with you. That's why it's helpful to learn about the items to add to your diaper bag during spring versus any other time of year.
The same way every season presents a unique set of challenges — like how your diaper bag in the wintertime will involve cold temperature-related items — your baby's needs will also change when the weather starts to warm up.
Spring can be a particularly tricky time due to the often uneven mix of wintry temperatures and greenery fighting its way back to bloom. Regardless of where you live, the spring months definitely bring a little bit of unpredictability into the picture. At least with winter or summer, you know that it's for sure going to be freezing or sweltering no matter where you're headed for the day. So what items are essential for your springtime diaper bag? Check out these things you should add to your baby's diaper bag so you'll be prepared.
