What you need in a diaper bag depends on your baby or child’s age (and how many children you have in your care). These 10 easy baby diaper bag organization tricks have made my life so much easier, and I cannot imagine going back to the haphazard way I used to pack my diaper bag!

1. Know your diaper bag essentials.

Create a list of must-have diaper bag essentials. Diapers, wipes, extra clothes, burp cloths… check, check, check, and check.

2. Take charge.

Based on your list of essentials, think about which OTG|247 bags you need for your diaper bag organization pouches. Having the right totes makes items easier to find - and makes you look like you are in control and confident (even when you may not feel that way)!

3. Use diaper bag organization pouches in different sizes.

Choosing a range of sizes for your diaper bag essentials just makes sense and can save a lot of room in your bag.

4. Color code.

Select different colors or patterns to make it easy to know where different things are stored. This is especially helpful if you are sharing a diaper bag with another parent or a sitter.

5. Use OTG|247 Nudies.

I love Nudie clear bags for my diaper bag essentials, so I can see exactly what’s inside and know right away if something is missing.

6. Keep separate totes for different activities.

What you need when visiting relatives may be very different from what you need when planning a picnic at the park. With the right organizers, you can just grab and go.

7. Change out your diaper bag organization pouches seasonally.

I find it really helpful to keep summer pouches with sunscreen, bug spray, etc. and winter pouches with hats, mittens, extra layers, etc.

8. Clean and restock your organization pouches regularly.

Because… babies. ‘Nuff said.

9. Keep it simple.

Resist the temptation to overpack! I know this is super hard, but stick to your list of essentials. It’ll make life - and finding what you need when you need it - easier.

10. Don't forget the snacks.

I keep a constant rotation of healthy snacks, which my #7 OTG|247 bag is perfect for.


When you’re on the go with kiddos, a bit of organization can make your outings a lot less stressful! Check out the OTG|247 complete diaper bag organization system here.
