My most used item as a mom is hands down diapers and wipes. You go through countless boxes of diapers, change them in the middle of the night, sometimes, you even use two at a time. And i’ll admit, I remember the first time I ended up in public without them. My parents were in town. We all decided to go out to dinner and loaded up in the car. My parents asked if I had everything in the diaper bag before we left and I said yes, then we were off. We got the restaurant and I had to change Brooke’s diaper while we waited for a table. That’s when I realized, I was using the last diaper in the bag. I thought, “no problem, no way she goes through another one just at dinner”. I changed her, we got a table, we ordered, we began eating… and then… I smelled it. Yikes, Brooke needed a diaper change. Then, the three tables next to us heard about it when Brooke started getting upset. We weren’t quite done with dinner, we had plans to order dessert, and there we were with a dirty diaper and no fresh one. I felt horrible.
We rushed through the rest of dinner and dessert then headed home. I remember glancing around the restaurant, considering asking another mom to borrow one. It was an epic mom fail moment. But, I brushed myself off and made a game plan to never be in that position again. On top of always making sure we have at least 2-3 diapers when leaving the house, I decided to make an emergency diaper change car kit. It was a super easy kit to put together, but it ensures that we are always prepared. Here is what you need:
I highly recommend a diaper clutch, because it is light and easy to store. I keep mine in the back of the seat pocket in the car. It is out of sight and doesn’t take up any space at all. It zips up for convenience and its super cute.
Target up & up™ diapers are a great diaper option. They come in 2 super cute designs and are Mom’s Picks award for Best Value! Part of BabyCenter. They have a new breathable outer cover, quilted absorbent care, and a wetness indicator. I love the wetness indicator, because it lets me gage when Brooke needs a diaper change. Plus, they offer up to 12 hours of leak protection for sizes 3 to 6, making them perfect for nighttime as well. Interested in trying them?

I keep just a few wipes in the clutch, normally in a plastic bag. I don’t keep a whole pack of wipes, because it is just meant as a back up and I don’t want it to take up too much space. Think simple, necessity.
I also keep a small sample size of diaper ointment in the bag just in case. While we don’t use it as much as we did when Brooke was a newborn, there are still those moments when I find myself needing some extra.
I hope this helps you think simply and grab just what you need for your Emergency Diaper Change Car Kit. I tend to keep 1-2 up & up™ diapers in the clutch for back up. Overall, my clutch is very light and thin most days and I have only had to use it a few times since our first epic fail. I’m thankful for a great lesson learned! I hope you have this in place before you experience something like we did.
