These days I can’t make a decision to save my life. Even the smallest little decisions like what I want to eat. It’s pretty pathetic, but for some reason, one decision that was easy for me to make was which diaper bag I wanted. I can’t really say why that is, it just is….and I will count myself lucky because just like everything else when it comes to having a baby there are a lot of options! I am a huge fan of the Vera Bradley line of bags, and have been loyal to the Java Blue Pattern. My extremely generous sister bought me my diaper bag! Yay! Now all I have to do is put stuff in it!

This particular bag has a total of 11 pockets inside! That’s a lot of space to store stuff, and it even has a hook to attach a pacifier too since it seems they get lost very easily. Also includes a 26″ x 14″ terry-covered changing pad with coordinating trim. That will definitely come in handy for changes on the go.

What exactly are diaper bag essentials? I honestly have no idea? Obviously, diapers and wipes…but what else? Can you help a girl out? I won’t be venturing out much the first few weeks, but I figure at least I can start to put SOME things in the bag…but what?

Along with the diaper bag she gave me the Vera Bradley Large Duffel bag.

I have been wanting this for some time since I already have the smaller duffel. I plan to use both though for my hospital stay. The big duffel will hold all my hospital stay items, and the small duffel I will bring with me to Labor and Delivery. I’ll be arriving to the hospital in style…or whatever style I can manage with a baby ready to come out of my who ha!

So I’m all set with bags I think! Yay! What are your diaper bag and hospital bag must haves???
