Health Tip: Packing Baby's Diaper Bag

Health Tip: Packing Baby's Diaper Bag

(HealthDay News) -- Before you head out with baby in tow, make sure you've safely and properly packed a diaper bag.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these suggestions:

  • Bring along unopened jars of commercial baby food.

  • Use ready-to-feed or powdered formula, or other foods that don't require refrigeration.

  • Pack an insulated container with ice packs for perishables such as breast milk. When you're done traveling, store in the refrigerator.

  • Keep spoons and forks in a separate bag to keep them clean.

  • Use hand-sanitizing wipes or a bottle of sanitizer before feeding baby or after changing a diaper.

  • Keep soiled diapers away from food and bottles.
