As a new mom, I knew I would change a lot of diapers, but there were two things no one warned me about – spit up and blowouts. I had no idea that this adorable tiny human we were bringing home from the hospital would make such terrible messes! It makes me laugh now, but I learned the hard way with Brooke. I felt like every time she had a blowout it was in the car or while we were in public. They would always happen in the worst places at the WORST times! I mean is there really ever a good time for a blowout?! NOPE! I finally started getting smart and created an Emergency Baby Blowout Kit.
No one looks forward to a blowout, but being prepared is half the battle to get through it. We keep a compact blowout blues bag in our car and one in our living room as well. I feel like I was way more prepared with blowouts from Baby Kevin, so I truly believe in being prepared with these essentials:
Waterproof Changing Pad Liners
These things are gems and will save your sanity (& loads of cleaning time). We not only used them as changing pad liners, but also used them to line our car seats, swings, strollers, etc. We used these things basically every place our babies booties sat. They easily wipe off and you can wash them in the washer. I cannot tell you how many times Brooke blew out in her car seat, then we would have to clean out the entire car seat, wash each part, wait for them to dry, and jump through all kinds of hoops to put it back together. These liners have SAVED us so much time and ease of cleaning!
Triple Paste Diaper Cream
Another item you may not think of right away, but it is so essential for SOOTHING! Your sanity is saved by the liner, but your baby’s comfort is key! I have found that oftentimes, blowouts and the digestive issues that cause them can often lead to diaper rashes, so it is a good idea to include Triple Paste® Diaper Rash Cream in your kit. It helps alleviate this painful side effect. And when nothing else is working, having a premium solution like Triple Paste® handy in your Blowout Blues bag can make all the difference for you and your little one to soothe them. Triple Paste® ointment provides fast relief for tough diaper rashes. Plus, it is safe and gentle for everyday use, as well as strong enough to calm even the worst rashes. You can purchase Triple Paste® at tons of retail stores including Target, Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, and Rite-Aid.
Wipes are a MAJOR essential to clean up the mess. Let’s be real, sometimes with a blowout, you even need to throw the little one in the bath if at all possible. I can clearly remember a blowout with each of my kids that resulted in bath time! You don’t forget those moments.
Then, once the mess is clean, you will need another diaper. I like to keep extra stock of diapers everywhere. You never know when you will need one. Like I mentioned, I keep an emergency stock in my car just in case the diaper bag is low on diapers or I forget to stock it up.
I also keep an extra set of clothes in my blowout blues kit because most likely a change of clothes will be needed for the little one. This is also another great item to have just in case. I can’t tell you how many times my kids went through their diaper bag outfit AND their emergency outfit while we were out and about!
