I rarely carry a diaper bag anymore, as my youngest baby is 3 and a half years old. That being said, I still have a decent amount of kid and mom must have purse essentials to tackle the day. I know it sounds like a lot, but really it isn’t once you get it all in there.
Pick up any baby book or magazine and you’ll be sure to find an article on advice for moms. In general, they’re helpful. But the reality is, every baby is different. Every child is different.
This isn’t my first rodeo, and after having three kids, you’d think I’d have this whole parenting thing down. Sleep routines, feeding, choosing the right brand of diapers – and that’s just the baby days. I don’t have all the answers, but I did some crowdsourcing and talked to some friends for parenting advice from real moms.
