Natural Diaper Bag Essentials

A diaper bag is an essential part of your life as a new parent, carrying everything you need to keep your little one comfortable and happy while on the go. Choosing environmentally friendly and natural products for your diaper bag is is a wonderful way to keep your little one healthy and safe.

Here’s a comprehensive guide to the best eco-friendly and natural products to keep in your diaper bag:

Organic or Cloth Diapers

While many parents who prefer natural products opt for cloth diapers, it is good to consider disposable options as well at least on the go.

Look for organic natural disposable diapers made from natural, biodegradable materials such as bamboo or organic cotton. These diapers are free from harmful chemicals, dyes, and fragrances, reducing the risk of skin irritation and environmental impact.

Consider including a few cloth diapers in your diaper bag rotation. Cloth diapers are reusable, reducing waste and saving money in the long run. Choose organic cotton or hemp cloth diapers for a natural and eco-friendly option. You can also find dirty diaper wet bags for getting dirty diapers home.

Natural, Biodegradable Wipes

Keep a pack of natural biodegradable wipes in your diaper bag for quick clean-ups. Look for wipes made from sustainably sourced materials that break down naturally, minimizing their environmental footprint.

Natural Diaper Cream

When it comes to diaper rash prevention and treatment, opt for a natural diaper cream free from harsh chemicals and synthetic fragrances. Look for products containing natural ingredients like calendula, coconut oil, and shea butter to soothe and protect your baby’s delicate skin.

Reusable Cloth Nursing Pads

For breastfeeding parents, reusable cloth nursing pads are a must-have item in the diaper bag.

Look for pads made from organic cotton or bamboo fabric for a sustainable and gentle option.

Natural Hand Sanitizer

Keep your hands clean and germ-free with a natural hand sanitizer made from plant-based ingredients like aloe vera and essential oils. Look for alcohol-free formulas that are gentle on sensitive skin.

Reusable Snack Bags

Instead of single-use plastic bags, pack snacks for your little one in reusable snack bags made from eco-friendly materials like silicone or organic cotton. These bags are durable, washable, and better for the environment.

Natural Teething Toys

Include natural teething toys made from organic cotton or sustainably harvested wood in your diaper bag. These toys provide relief for teething babies without the use of plastics or harmful chemicals.

Stainless Steel or Glass Baby Bottles

If you’re bottle-feeding your baby, opt for stainless steel baby bottles or glass baby bottles instead of plastic ones. These materials are non-toxic, durable, and can be reused for years, reducing waste.

Organic Baby Clothes, Blankets, and Burp Cloths

Pack a spare outfit made from organic cotton or bamboo fabric in your diaper bag in case of diaper blowouts or spills. Organic baby clothes are softer, safer, and better for the environment than conventional cotton garments.

By stocking your diaper bag with these eco-friendly and natural products, you can care for your baby’s needs while minimizing your environmental impact. From diapers to wipes to skincare essentials, every item plays a part in creating a healthier and more sustainable future for your little one.

    I am loving all of the wonderful organic and sustainable bay items that they sell these days! I love it and so wish they had had these when my odest kids were younger. I remember my mom used cloth diapers for me when I was a baby…. I don’t remember really but have seen the pics! LOL

  12. Cloth diapers are such a great way to cut down on a static need while raising children. Not only that but it does wonders for cutting down on inorganic waste! I wish I had been aware of a lot of the other products listed, I’m sure the natural and organic creams, wipes, and teething items would have provided a lot of reassurance in reliability of item safety and smaller eco footprint.

  13. We tried cloth diapers for a little bit. I wished I would have stuck with it longer but it was just easier to deal with disposable as a sleep deprived parent.
