current diaper bag favorites

The past few weeks we've been battling colds and teething, never a good combo when Finn is slammed with both. The few times we've venture out in the thick of it I made sure I had my pack of Boogie Wipes, Frida Nose Sucker and Zarbees Baby Cough Syrup. All of which are staples anytime we get hit with a cold and so fitting for today's post, my current diaper bag favorites! 
While having two babes to tote stuff around for now, I found I was in need of a bigger diaper bag. My cute, black and white striped, Kate Spade just wasn't cutting it anymore and it was downright heartbreaking. For my birthday in November Mike bought me my first Nena & Co. Day Bag II and I couldn't be more in love. The bag is not only beautiful, but also very spacious with great pockets for everything a mama needs to carry. We are on the go more and more with this beautiful weather we've been having and we don't always know exactly where we might end up so I always keep of few of my favorites in my bag at all times. 

Ubbi Tweat Cups | it never fails that once I get the kiddos strapped into their car seats, load the diaper bag, make sure their jackets or cozies are in the back with the stroller, I have my wallet and shut the garage door...Kensi hollers from the backseat asking for a snack. It almost always happens. For some time I would just pack a little Baggie of snacks, but too often the bag would get lost under the seat and our car would quickly fill with trash. Insert snack cup. We love a cup that can easily open and close and have a handle so it doesn't slip out of little hands. We really like the Ubbi snack cups; they do everything we need them to do and the kiddos love the bright color. Plus, bonus...if they do get dropped, they're easy to find. 

SollyWrap | I love love love this wrap. It's easy to use, light on the back and husband friendly. I keep one in the house and one in the diaper bag at all times. It has been my life saver when Finn was itty bitty and didn't want to be put down to sleep to even now when he needs some extra mama snuggles while grocery shopping. 

Baby Powder | I keep this in the bag not for my baby's bum, but for our trips to the beach. Amazingly, baby powder removes sand from skin. Sprinkle it wherever the sand is sticking, rub together, and the sand will fall away. We use it every trip and always leave our parking space looking like a drug bust happened. 

Zoe Organics | We started using Zoe Organics last year. I began using their Belly Butter and Belly Oil to help with my strech marks from Finn and they have improved tremendously. We also use the Everything Balm and it really works on everything. I especially love using it on bug bites; it takes away the itch and makes the swelling go down quickly. 

Burts Bees Lip Crayon | This is my go to cosmetic for lip color. Most days I don't wear makeup, but if I'm leaving the house I try to put on mascara and some lip color. I love the soft pinks for a low maintenance look and bright colors for date nights. Plus, they totally hide the 'I'm a mom who slept maybe 2 hours last night, I'm on my third cup of coffee, don't look at my clothes because there's food stuck on them somewhere and my hair is up in a bun because I haven't showered in two days.'
