Breastfeeding Mom Must Haves!

I am blessed to have a partner who loves packing and who is always ready! I give credit to him. I was never a packer nor organized, but this man is on the top of his game when it comes to parenthood. These are the things that he always make sure that we have before we leave. It’s even segregated and put into different sizes of ziplocks

  1. WIPES – NEVER EVER LEAVE THE HOUSE WITHOUT WIPES. It’s a life saver! I always make sure to bring atleast 2 set of wipes
  2. LAMPIN – make sure you have at least 4 because of all the pawis, lungad and it can be used as a cover for dirty places when you need to lay your baby for a while.
  3. EXTRA SETS OF CLOTHES – This includes 2 bibs, 2 shirts, 2 bottoms, 1 long sleeves (in-case you’ll be going to somewhere cold), 2 pairs of socks, 2 pairs of mittens, 2 cap/bonnet (in case you drop it) and wash cloth
  4. DIAPERS – bring at least 6, you’ll never know right?
  5. Teethers/Rattles – whenever they get bored, give it to them, better than eating their hands! 
  6. Alcohol – always sanitize the place you are going to put the baby, as well as the person who’s going to hold your baby.
  7. Changing Pad – we never know how clean/dirty the changing area would be right? So better bring some extra! Plus if you are in a car, you can change without worries!
  8. Nursing Cover – I always have one in my bag that is never taken out.
  9. BISCUITS – this is for us nursing moms. For that sudden hunger while we are in the jeep/taxi/car! I suggest Muesli bars too if available.
  10. Sanitizing Wipes – applicable for the toy rattles or pacifier that fell and are dirty! Clean it using these to ensure the bacteria is killed! WE HATE GERMS RIGHT? This is different from the regular wipes, Pigeon offers this.
  11. Pacifier/Toy Holder – such a relief knowing that if ever our baby will let go of their toy, it will not come to the point that it would reached the floor! You pin this to your baby’s clothes and the other end is with the toy. Everytime they accidentally drop it, it would be saved! Hahaha.
  12. Blanket – at least 2 please, imagine when you need to put your baby in a place to let him lie down; one is used to make latag and the other one to cover him up.
  13. Nappy Bags – in case the there’s poop and there’s no trashcan, let’s all be responsible and bring our trash to the proper place.
  14. Wet Bag – it’s a life saver since it’s a better option to place your wet bibs/wet lampins that will never make your other things wet.
  15. Breastfeeding Pads – bring 1-2 extra pairs, depends if you are still leaking. I stopped leaking around 3 months.
  16. First Aid Kit – we never know what the future holds, but it is better to be prepared
    1. Thermometer
    2. Paracetamol
  17. Cosmetic Pouch that Holds – I have these in travel sizes
    1. Diaper Cream – I prefer BEPHANTHEN which is available at my shop 
    2. Mustela No Rinse Water – never found any cheaper alternatives yet
    3. Mustela Cleansing Milk – or Baby Flo No Rinse Soap is a cheaper alternative
    4. Cotton Balls/ Cotton Buds – cotton balls and mustela no rinse water is what we use to clean the face after exposure.
    5. Mosquito Repellant Stickers – dengue is much more expensive than buying this! hahaha
    6. Mustela Stelatria Purifying Recovery Cream – my little one is prone to babyacne and scratches from his own nails, this makes his marks gone in a few days.
    7. Hair Brush – who doesn’t like a baby dapper all the time?

A lot of things eh? That’s really the real deal of parenthood. Be always prepared to make your child comfortable, safe and happy at all times.
