Grace Patton is a fairly new transplant to Tampa from St. Louis but she never wants to leave. She has five kids, one husband, one dog and one blog (www.camppatton.com) where she chronicles life with all of the above.
“I have to admit that my diaper bag is littered with granola bar wrappers and receipts galore, but I do guard a few staples with my life and away from my 2-year-old.”
My bag of choice: “I’m a longtime fan of Lily Jade diaper bags due to their quality, versatility and classic styles. I would give every new mom one if I could because I know it would be the first and last bag they ever use.” Photo Credit: Laura Foote
Wipes: “I’ve tried them all and prefer Kirkland (Costco brand) wipes. Even my husband, who rarely has much to say about baby gear, swears they are the best. I use them for face washes, carseat wipe downs and everything in between.”
Headphones: “I love listening to books and podcasts and never know when I’ll be able to snag a quick five minutes to listen, so it’s nice to know where they are at all times.”
RX Bars: “I keep a few of these in my bag in case we are out longer than anticipated. All my kids love them and I love that they have added protein to keep us all full for a little bit longer.”
