Would you leave your home without the diaper bag, or milk bottles or toys and wish you could get it together? Several times, when my twins were infants, I would forget to bring the diaper bag and boy would I be not a happy camper.. Because when they were preemies and infants, I changed their diapers all teh time...

I was actually pretty good about remembering the diaper bag. The times it was forgotten though, we when I asked my partner to grab it and it just for some reason did not hear me. But I have the habit of asking him if he remembered to grab something when we are leaving. I guess that is because he would always forget to grab it when I did ask. ha ha I was lucky to get him and the other children out the door! ha ha

when my son was a baby, i never forgot to take essential things that were for him, spare clothes, pleanty of nappies, bottles of milk, wipes ect.. but i often forgot stuff that was for me and that bugged me lol. my best friend was in university while she was pregnant, and after having her first daughter and then some maternity leave, she wanted to see if she could handle going back, i looked after her daughter 3 days a week, she always forgot stuff, nappies, extra clothes, extra milk incase she was hungier than usual (she didn't forget all these things every time she brought her to me, just one or 2 things each day). i got around it though by buying a tin of formula for my house, buying extra clothes and nappies ect so it never bothered me too much. i think some people are just naturally forgetful, or they just feel under preassure and a little russhed.

I used one bag as a diaper bag and purse so I never really forgot it. Often I would go to the park without it, but we live only a few blocks away so if I needed to change his diaper it would be no problem to run back home.

Yes, I did forget the diaper bag once. Boy did I learn not to do it again since my son ended up with diariah and we had to stop at the store and buy diapers, clothe, and baby wipes. After that I just alway left the diaper bag in the car with all the necessities and when I noticed that I was running low I would add more stuff.
