Lily Jade: How to pack for two little ones!

Lily Jade: How to pack for two little ones! See how Oh Happy Play, Florida Motherhood blogger packs up her diaper bag for her twins.

Remember those days when you threw your keys in your tiny little designer handbag, that was still as clean as the day you bought it, as you ran out the door minutes before you had to be at the next location? Yeah, me either. Those days aren’t that far behind me in actuality but now as I sit here with two little girls 2 and under, it seems like centuries. Getting out of the house is much more of a chore these days and as a mom I look for ways to make my life easier and processes a little smoother. So when it came to my life line outside of the home (aka my diaper bag) I knew I needed one that could carry everything I could possibly need and be functional for me as well. I am a bit of an organization freak and my Lily Jade diaper bag catered to just that! I am on my second bag of theirs and I don’t see me changing that any time soon. I may of had to give up my tiny designer bag but I didn’t have to give up the well-made designer-feel of a bag. The genuine leather and attention to detail of my Lily Jade bags are so impressive. Not one aspect of this bag was overlooked. Functionality, looks and durability are what makes this bag a must have for any mama who doesn’t want to skimp on quality when it comes to a diaper bag.

What I love most about Lily Jade bags are the removable “baby bag” inserts. This insert easily comes in and out of the bag and makes packing it much more organized! No more black hole of a diaper bag. As I mentioned before, I have two Lily Jade bags, The Elizabeth in Camel and the Meggan in black. The baby bag is interchangeable between the two so whichever bag I want to use that day I can just switch the insert into that bag. Such a time saver!!

Want to see what is in mine and how I pack for my two little ones? Read the details below!!

My diaper bag must haves for two kids ages two and under are this:

Diapers & Wipes: My general rule is to pack “a diaper an hour.” So if I am planning to be gone for two hours, I will pack two diapers for each girl. We use Honest Co and love them!

Snacks & Sippy cups: Snack holder is by one of my favorites, Swankroo. And our go to sippy cups are Nuby brand ones.

Travel Spoon: Because I am a germaphobe…kind of. Brand is OXO

Neat Cheeks: I always have a pack on hand!

Outfit change: One for each girl & a pair of shoes (Freshly Picked Moccs) for the youngest in case she decides she wants to explore.

Nursing cover: My youngest is still exclusively breastfed so I need to be prepared to feed her wherever we may be.

Lightweight blanket: Multi-functional as I can use it for a play mat or if it becomes unexpectedly chilly.

Paci & Clip….because we don’t leave home without it!

Toys: When it comes to which toys I pack, I pack small, multi-functional toys. I try to bring ones that both girls can enjoy. I have found that the small squared board books are great for both girls. They are easy to pack due to their size and perfect for tiny hands. As for my two year old I always have a “Play Pack” on hand. I have a stash of them at home and throw one in my bag before we head to any restaurants or places where she may need to be entertained. It comes with a small coloring pad, crayons & stickers. All of which can be tossed afterwards because at a dollar a pop they are certainly replaceable! Also for her I have found these little cameras at Party City that are about the size of my thumb and the perfect size to throw in a corner pocket of my bag. They are basically mini view finders that have different images when you look through the hole and can click for a series of 5 different images. Again for less than a dollar I keep a bowl full of them in case we lose one. They have different characters you can chose from but if you can see a theme here, my daughter is obsessed with Mickey Mouse! For the littlest I always have one of her wooden toys because she can chew on them or roll it around, again multi functional. This one is from Bannor Toys.  I also have a few small rattles and teething toys all from one of our favorite brands, Nuby USA. She absolutely loves them. This includes a teething necklace that I can wear to keep her entertained as well.

Not pictured in the first two images: Roll up changing pad that fits next to this baby bag insert inside my purse.

Getting out of the house has been much easier knowing I am prepared for whatever our adventure brings. I can thank my well organized Lily Jade bag for that! I hope you enjoyed taking a peak inside my bag. Cheers!

    […] They offer two styles that I just LOVE. The first style is the standard nursing cover, which is available in premium muslim material. This one is a warm weather must have! Its breathable and open which allows for air flow and eye to eye contact with the baby while nursing. Being a Florida mama, this couldn’t be more perfect year round! And of course, the color/pattern options are right on trend and beautiful. Along with being lightweight they fold up easily and take minimal space in my diaper bag, which I talked about last month HERE. […]

    • Today we frolicked with the fishies at the aquarium for their school field trip and let’s just say these girls couldn’t be happier! What a special way to kick off the long weekend AND Lo’s birthday 🎉🐠 Seeing them so happy is what I live for! #sistersister #birthdaygirl
    • How can I not feel blessed? Everyone I pass when I’m in public with these 4 blesses me as we pass by 🤣 I’ve had multiple people tell me how calm I seem with them (one of those people asked me if I was on drugs...I can’t make this stuff up!) and they have said that next time they feel stressed they’ll just think of me lol...One of those people was a dad so to his wife, you’re welcome, hopefully he comes home in a better mood 😂 I really should just start writing this stuff down because some of the comments we get are too funny! What is the craziest thing you’ve ever been told when out with your kids!? #momof4 #twinmom
    • Double yap this! Where are my target 🎯 friends at?! Not only is target doing their big toy sale right now but @justplayproducts also has the cutest new #Vamperina toy sets out and these girls certainly approve!!

    • These goofballs performed “Shallow” by @ladygaga & Bradley Cooper in their school talent show last week and I finally got it up on YouTube 👏🏼 🎤 You can find the link in my bio or in my #YouTube highlights! I love watching these girls be so brave and standing in front of a crowd like it’s no big deal. If nothing else these girls are learning confidence and I’m just happy to be their biggest cheerleader 📣 #shallow #talentshow #theyalsosangfrozen #becausetheyreextra 🤣
    • So much thanks to @rutheckerdhall for hosting us today at the Daniel Tiger LIVE ‘King For A Day’ show ✨ Everything was perfect and it’s always a favorite venue of ours to attend. The show was adorable and we had 3 little ones with the biggest smiles on their faces the whole show 🐯 Head over to my stories for more of the fun! Do you like Daniel Tiger?! #hosted #danieltigerlive #rutheckerdhall #kingforaday
    • I’ve never had to be more patient than I have these last couple years building this house. Today was a breath of fresh air and reminded me why we chose the builder we did and why it’s taking as long as it has. He met us here on a Saturday to personally help facilitate the design of our front yard (which includes totally changing our driveway 🤦🏻‍♀️). I hear “change” and I immediately shut down but ultimately he wants this house and the finished product to be just as perfect as we do and that I can respect/appreciate! The house will get done and it will be worth it (I’m telling myself this not you 🤣) I shared a question box in my stories about what you’d all want more of on my feed and house updates were one of them! Here are some from today and I will share more as we finish this project up! The kids LOVED watching the lot get prepped for landscape ☀️ Live action of what they’re looking at is in my stories now!  #buildingcasabryant #newhome #custombuild
