We’ve all been in sticky situations where we were out running errands and our baby has a blowout and we realize we have no extra outfit with us or worse – we are out of diapers. I’ve been there more than once. In fact, on our way home from Jacksonville a few weeks ago, Sophie had been crying and crying and I thought she was just fighting sleep because I had JUST changed her diaper. It couldn’t be that. Right? Wrong. She had a blowout and it was all over her outfit and her car seat. I had nothing with me to clean it up with so we had to make a stop at the next exit and stop at a gas station to clean it up the best we could. I felt so bad that I had ignored her screaming and played it off on something else.
After I had Hampton, I was constantly leaving the house and forgetting to repack his diaper bag. I would find myself without diapers, snacks or sippy cups, etc. Eventually, it hit me that I should keep a basket in our car with extras of everything in his diaper bag just in case I found myself in this situation. I forgot to keep this up after Sophie was born, but after that terrible car trip, I learned my lesson and now have this basket in my car again. I call it my emergency car kit for baby.
What you need to create your car emergency kit:
Blanket or Swaddle
I ran to Walmart to stock up on extra diapers and wipes for these baskets (although these are also available online). I love using Huggies® Little Snugglers diapers and Huggies® Natural Care wipes because they deliver the best skin care solution for my sweet baby for the great value of Walmart. You can’t beat it. Huggies brand diapers have always fit my baby girl so well and they have definitely been our brand of choice for her.Huggies® Little Snugglers are designed to help keep baby’s skin healthy and clean. Their GentleAbsorb liner and Wetness Indicator are also great for keeping baby happy while helping mommy out by letting us know when it is time for a change! They even include an umbilical cord cut-out in preemie and newborn sizes to protect baby’s healing belly-buttons.
Huggies® Natural Care wipes have been my go-to for baby wipes because I love the Tripleclean layers and texture that helps mom to get their baby extra clean while also being gentle enough for babies with sensitive skin.
This basket has already been so handy and useful to me because it is rare that I don’t forget at least one thing when we leave the house. It is so nice to have a back up and makes me feel better about leaving the house in a hurry.
This basket would also make a wonderful baby gift for a friend. I would have loved to receive this as a gift when I was pregnant with my babies. It is something a new mom will actually use and be very thankful for. I put together a spare basket when I was freshening mine up the other day just so I would have a baby gift on hand. So many friends of mine have just had babies or are expecting them. In fact, 3 of my cousins are having 4 babies this year alone. My family keeps growing and growing and I love it! This might just be my new go-to for baby gifts!
