3 Must Have Items For Surviving Those Baby Blowouts

I love clothes! Especially for my girls. I can find a cute outfit practically anywhere I go. But keeping those outfits clean can be a challenge, especially when you encounter those baby blowouts!

Luckily, I have 3 must have items for my diaper bag to help keep those outfits in excellent condition for future baby’s.

3 Must Have Items

  1. Extra Outfit

Aside from the basics (diapers and wipes), extra outfits are an essential part of the diaper bag! I typically have an outfit and two sleepers in a range of sizes, because they grow so fast. So once you have your sweet babe all cleaned up and in a fresh outfit, you can begin step #2!

2.  Soap

There are several stain removing products on the market. While I am sure some of them work wonders, I prefer to keep it low-cost and simple. This is why I use a $1-$2 bottle of clear hand soap from my local grocery store.

*(I have used hand soap with a purple tint before. While it did remove the initial stain, I do feel it left a purplish hugh in it’s place.)

*EXCEPTION – If you don’t have any soap in your diaper bag, use whatever hand soap is in the public restroom. It’s better than no soap at all.

Just run the now greenish outfit under cold water. Next, apply a few quarter sized helpings of soap to the stains and scrub for a minute or to. Finally running the outfit under cold water again.

3.  Plastic Bag

I cannot tell you how many times I have forgotten to put a few plastic bags in the diaper bag! Ugh! Nothing makes a blowout worse then having no place to put that dirty outfit.

The day I originally planned to write this post, I had just pulled into the Panera parking lot, when I realized my babe had an extreme blowout. I took her to the tiny public restroom and got her cleaned up. Thank heavens I had those spear outfits! Unfortunately, I did not have my hand soap or plastic bags.

So there I was, sweating in a small restroom, using the pink soap from the dispenser, as my babe was smiling blissfully in her car seat. Then I had to carry my baby and her soaked, dirty outfit to the front – sweating all the way mind you! Thankfully, the employees were kind enough to get me a plastic bag! I am very grateful!

*Note to self – Never forget these 3 Must Have Items*

*Side note – I wash all their clothes in cold water, on a delicate cycle.

What are your must have items for keeping those outfits in excellent condition after a blowout? I would love to hear your tips!
