Top Five Things You Need in Your Diaper Bag
For many of you, I don’t need to explain. You already know the joys of baby wearing and you wouldn’t have it any other way. Others of you may be wondering what is the big deal about baby wearing. Maybe you think it looks too hot, too heavy, and too inconvenient. Why not just use a stroller?
I made lots of dumb mistakes with my first child. Well, maybe I shouldn’t call them mistakes. Let’s say I made some decisions that seem silly now that I’m a more experienced mom. Here is my list of the Top 5 Things I will totally do differently when my next baby comes.
Have you ever heard the story of the starving baker? It’s about a hard working man who owns a bakery. Every day, he starts early, stays late, and has almost no help. More people come to his shop by the day because the food and the service are so excellent, and they all leave satisfied.

Today, I spent a little time going through our baby gear to put the stuff we don’t use anymore in storage until next time.

Since I have a few friends who are approaching their due date, I figured that now might be a good time to give my recommendations of the top 5 baby products that (I believe) are essential for making it through those first few months. So, here we go:
Like so many moms, I love using pouches to organize my diaper bag. There is just something so satisfying about having a place for everything and everything in its place. I’ll confess that I use Ju-Ju-Be pouches most of the time, but I love to incorporate pouches from other brands because they offer a different variety of prints and sizes.
The Sensible Mama movement is centered on our firm belief that motherhood is a sisterhood. We want to contrast the mommy shaming that seems so prevalent today with a community of moms that are compassionate, inspiring and supportive. We are creating a community that aims to equip, educate, inspire, and share.
