How to Pack a Diaper Bag for a Dude
By Brian of Looky, Daddy!
Not a diaper bag at least. Make it a backpack instead, preferably one with NorthFace printed on it, never mind that the closest thing to a mountain he’ll be climbing is the kiddie slide.
2. Pack extra clothes.
Bury that ugly outfit your husband’s mom bought the baby way down deep in the bag. Right next to the shirt she bought for him.
3. Include the basics, skip the extras.
Diapers, wipes, changing pad. The changing tables in most men’s restrooms are exactly as you imagine them to be. Get in, get out. He can powder the kid’s butt when he gets home.
4. If it’s little, pack a bunch of it.
You can never have too many band-aids, pacifiers, teething rings, squeaky monkeys, or bottles of hand sanitizers (see men’s restroom reference above).
5. Like I even need to say it.
