When it comes to having a little one, one of the biggest changes for me was always having to carry around a diaper bag. I wasn’t used to carrying around big bags. I always carried everything I needed in a small cross-body bag for every day. Well that all changed when I had Briana, my necessities didn’t change, but I needed to be sure to have something I could carry around all her necessities in as well. Although my Skip Hop backpack is perfect for longer trips, sometimes all I need is something to slip my phone, keys and other essentials in when I’m out and about with her. For quick stops to the grocery store, or pharmacy, or park. I don’t have the need to have a huge bag with me. So, in came…The Fanny Pack – the perfect now item that is functional and stylish for a mom on-the-go.
My Fanny Pack keeps me hands free which is perfect for those times I just need to grab the little one and go. I found myself taking Briana to the park a lot or running small errands. It’s not easy to carry a baby while carrying, phone, keys, wallet…nope. So I started shopping for a Fanny Pack for quick trips.
So…what’s in my Fanny Pack?
- Hand Sanitizer – I got one that can hang from the zipper of the fanny pack and it doesn’t take up too much space inside.
- Baby Wipes To Go – This is great for emergencies or messes…because you never know.
- Spare Daiper – This is also in case of emergency. For quick trips you shouldn’t need to worry, but just in case having one is a good thing.
- Carmex – for me, I have one of these in every bag…it’s a must-have
- Phone & Keys – Essentials
- Small Wallet – for ID & Card/Cash
- Sunnies – For me because it’s always sunny in Miami
Remember…this only works for quick little trips with the baby…and of course I got a black one with gold hardware because it will go with most everything I wear when I go out with Briana. I always buy an essential in a color and style I like, because you always gotta make it stylish! The one I am wearing is from Target from the brand A New Day and its $14.99. I’ve gone ahead and linked some affordable options for you in this post…let me know what you think about how I use my FannyPack in the comments below. Also…I’m sure the FannyPack is a style that will come and go, so if you are going for style…go ahead and go crazy and get somethings unique. If you’re going for something for every day to go with many styles…keep it simple and classic. It’s always good to stay true to your personal style when buying a trendy item like this.
