How to Pack ToteSavvy for a Newborn & Toddler

Posted by on


Hello Lovelies! If you're reading this we're pretty confident you recently had baby #2 (or 3 or 4!) and are overwhelmed with the idea of adding even more stuff to your diaper bag. Packing for one can be a challenge, but something you quickly master. Packing for two? That's a whole new ball game! 

With ToteSavvy you can easily and effectively pack necessities for both of your babes without feeling like you're carrying the whole nursery along with you. As a veteran mom, you probably realize packing light is a true asset!  

Here's what's inside our ToteSavvy for a newborn baby and cruisin' toddler:

  • (3) size 4 diapers
  • (3) size 1 diapers
  • wet wipes
  • (1) toddler clean outfit
  • (1) newborn clean outfit
  • Green Sprouts sippy cup
  • Ubbi snack container 
  • Motherlove nipple cream – must have if breastfeeding!
  • Solly Baby swaddle
  • Teether toy
  • Mama & Little teething bracelets
  • Babo lip balm

The list may seem light, and it is! We've paired down the essentials you'll need when out and about with two under two. Your newborn baby won't need much more than diapers, wipes, a spare outfit and maybe a blanket. If you're breastfeeding you can pack your favorite nipple cream and breastmilk pads. If you're bottle feeding, an extra bottle or two can be packed inside ToteSavvy's insulated pocket.

We like to use the extra large Velcro pocket for spare clothing. It's large enough to fit multiple outfits, and easy to reach in and access.

Your toddler may need a bit more than your newborn, but not so much to overload your handbag. Every toddler we know is snack-happy to don't forget to pack his or her favorite snack!

When on-the-go with your babes we highly recommend the Solly Baby wrap. Their super soft Lenzing Modal wraps are perfect for holding your newborn close, while chasing after an energetic toddler. We love Solly because their wraps are made in the U.S. and $1 from every wrap purchased helps make a safe birth for a mother around the world.
