A diaper bag is one of the major items that parents need. Besides the fact that it helps parent carry around all they need for their babies, it also one item that get to be for the parents use as much as the baby’s. That's why many parents go for high-quality diaper bags like the Faux Leather Diaperbag. Below I’ll talk about the basic necessities that need to be in a diaper bag and how you can care for the Faux Leather Diaperbag.

 

What should be in a Daiperbag

  • Diapers: You should pack one diaper for each hour you'll be out, plus a few extra just in case.
  • Wipes: You can stick ten or so in a plastic bag if you're not going out for long. Wipes are perfect not just for diaper changes, but also for sticky hands and dirty surfaces. It’s an added plus if you can pack disinfectant wipes or cleaning those hands and sticky fingers.
  • Hand sanitizer: For cleaning your hands after diaper changes when there's no time or place to wash them. Disinfectant wipes could also do the job.
  • Changing pad: Many diaper bags come with a reusable changing pad, or you can buy one separately. Disposable changing pads are an added convenience when traveling so you can get a few to use when preparing for a trip. Packing a hand towel from home will also do.
  • Plastic or biodegradable bags: For storing soiled diapers, clothes, and baby blankets. Remember plastic bags pose a risk of suffocation to babies so make sure you keep them out of reach of your babies and toddlers.
  • Bottles: Pack bottles of baby formula and baby food.
  • Snacks: Pack snacks for older kids or for babies already eating solids. Pack sliced fruit, juice boxes etc. Also, pack a bib because that will most likely soil themselves. Also pack a sippy cup of milk, water, or juice(if you don’t pack juice boxes)
  • Blanket: You can use a blanket to shade your baby from the sun on the stroller or as a changing pad, nursing cover, bib, or burp cloth.
  • Extra clothes for your child: You never know when spit-up, drool, spills, or poop explosions will necessitate a change of clothing. Also, pack socks and underwear for potty trained or toddlers still being potty trained
  • Miscellaneous: Pack a pacifier (if your child uses one) or other comfort items. Also pack sunscreen, a hat etc
  • Emergency information: Make sure you have the phone numbers of your family's doctors programmed in your cell phone and health insurance cards in your wallet.

 

Care Tips

 

All leather tends to lose moisture and oils over time which makes it start to dry out. To keep any leather diaper backpack in tip-top condition, you need to ensure the leather fibers stay supple and to accomplish this the leather backpacks will require natural oils or regular moisturizing. It’s always best to regularly use a leather care product to replace those oils and keep the leather supple. Also please note that you should never use a product that contains Lanolin – so be careful using baby wipes to clean your leather diaper backpack as they can often contain it. If you can buy baby wipes that don’t contain Lanolin then it will be of greater convenience so you don’t think twice about wiping down spills with the wipes kept in the bag. Keep your leather bags stored in places that are dry and clean when you're not using them, ideally in the specially designed dust bag that came with your bag to help protect it.

 

Scratches: To avoid scratches, keep your bag away from sharp objects and surfaces. Also, apply Vaseline or boot polish to coat the leather with a protective finish that’ll make it durable. Applying any form of polish, even a clear or natural color will almost always change the color of your leather. So test a small area of leather first (such as the tag/key ring we supply with your bag) and then check you’re happy with the final color before applying to the rest of the surface of the bag. Apply this polish at least every couple of weeks, if not more often as you would with a fine pair of leather shoes. We believe that using a traditional polish in combination with our premium leathers will develop one of the finest patinas over time.

 

Dirt: The key to removing dirt and other such marks is not to use too much pressure, it’s much better to lightly rub a mark 100 times with low pressure than 10 times with a lot of pressure. If you apply high pressure you are more likely to remove the finish and damage the leather. Warm water and elbow grease can get rid of small dirt stains on the bag.



Rain: Leather leather diaper backpacks should not be allowed to get wet but if they do, they should be wiped with a dry cloth and allowed to dry naturally. If your leather diaper backpack gets wet then never force-dry the leather by using heat. Do not place on radiators or use hair dryers, simply leave it in a place that is normal room temperature until it dries naturally. If you are going to continuously experience bad weather then we would suggest that you obtain some leather waterproofing products like beeswax to help keep your leather diaper backpack dry.


Extreme Temperatures: Keep it out of hot temperatures, especially extreme heat. Heat exposure can cause the pigmented finish to bubble and to peel away. Try to keep leather out of direct sunlight for long periods, because this can fade your leather, although we have tested our leather in direct sunlight for periods of 6-months and have only seen very slight fading. Freezing temperatures can also damage your leather diaper backpacks and the natural structure of its fibers, that give it strength, and make them brittle. Cold temperatures can also cause the pigmented coating to crack excessively, so if you don’t like that effect then it’s prudent not to let it get too cold.
