An Emergency Diaper Kit For The Car

As the mother of a toddler and an infant, I’ve learned to be ready with what I need to bring for my kids in our diaper bag. This includes items to pack for feeding, diapering, and extra clothing. But of course, there are days that I feel sleep deprived and forgetful; on other days, there are unexpected outdoor activities or restaurant visits.  No matter how well I’ve prepared, I sometimes forget to bring things like extra diapers. Today, I’m excited to team up with Huggies and Costco  to show you a step-by-step on how I packed an emergency diaper kit for my car. This is a life-saver and is super helpful for parents like me! Here’s how I created mine – it only takes 2 steps!

2. Pack what your child needs. As a mom of a toddler and infant, here are the things I put in my emergency diaper kit for my car:


  • Diapers
  • Wipes
  • Ready-to-go Bag
  • Extra Bag
  • Extra Clothes
  • Bib
  • Snacks (these get eaten very quickly!)
  • Toy and a book
  • Plastic Bags
  • Diaper Cream
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Moisturizer
  • Teething Toy

Parent tip: Have a ready-to-go diaper bag in the emergency diaper kit which can be easily taken with you when needed. Fill it with only the basic things you need: a diaper, wipes inside a small ziplock, and a grocery bag for dirty diapers or clothes. You can also use a large ziplock as the bag to carry everything in.


My eldest son, who is two years old, knows how to use the potty now, so I pack extra briefs and bottoms. However, we still have him wear diapers during bedtime and long drives since he can fall asleep in his carseat. So having extra diapers inside the car is a must! Our youngest son, who just turned one year old, is wearing a size 5 diaper! I know, what a big boy! He has been much more active since he started to crawl, walk, and climb. I love how Huggies Little Movers Plus diapers (Size 5) absorb so well, protecting my son from any leaking. I used to use  a different diaper brand in size 6 for him for bedtime since he often leaks at night. However, since using Little Movers Plus diapers in size 5, I have not had to wake up and change his diaper due to leaking. The Huggies Little Movers Plus diaper also has comfortable grip straps, a perfect fit for on-the-go movers like him. These Plus diapers are only available at Costco.

    I always used to lose diaper cream. It’s like it would just disappear! Haha! I always needed extra. #client

  2. It’s been many years since I had to buy diapers, but I really like your shower caddy diaper kit. Great way to be prepared while on-the-go.

    Never know when the grandbaby show up so in each vehicle I have a lunch bag with : some diapers,wipes in a Ziploc, a bottle of water, couple packages of fruit snacks ,A Pair of socks, an outfit change, A small picture book and small age-appropriate toy and some empty bags . The bottle of water is great in case your wipes dry out or stuck in traffic with a hungry or thirsty child. Socks can double as mittens also if needed And the lunch bag keeps everything contained in my vehicle.
