Six Summer Diaper Bag Essentials

May 24, 2016

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Dove, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #pmgdove #DovePartner #EssentialUpgrade
Summer is just around the corner, and I'm already thinking up the amazing activities I have in mind for Grace and I to do! Today, I’ve partnered with Dove to tell you all about their Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant and share the rest of my favorite Summer diaper bag essentials too! Read on to see what I think (and some moms from my Mom Tribe) think are most important in a Summer diaper bag.
This may seem obvious, but I have forgotten my sunglasses at homes many time! I always keep an extra pair in a pocket of my diaper bag just in case my mom brain leads me to forget my everyday wear ones! I wish I could include sunglasses for Grace on this list, but this chick isn't into them, so mama is the only one who rocks them as of now.

Baby sun hat
This white one from Target has a cute little chin strap, and only cost $5! The ones with SPF in them are good too!

Water canteen
We drink out of stainless steel or glass, typically, so I love this cute, little, pink kids canteen for these hot Summer months! Gotta keep those babes hydrated.

A Portable Antiperspirant That Works
Did you know that 88% of women prefer a deodorant that also provides skincare benefits in addition to odor and wetness protection? The mom sweat + hormones are real, so it's essential to have a deodorant that works well. Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant is great for wetness protection. Dove Advanced Care has added skin care benefits of its NutriumMoisture formula. This leaves your underarms summer-ready by being dry and smooth!

Check out this infographic above... can you believe that almost 50% of women go back home if they forget to put theirs on!? I, personally, am in that 67% who will try to distance myself by not hugging anyone or raising my arms if I forget to put anything on haha.

I mentioned that the deodorant must be portable because I HATE leaving the house without remembering to put my deodorant on. It totally makes me super self-confident. Thankfully, Dove Advanced Care has a 48-hour protection. 
Sanitizer wipes
I try not to sanitize everything, but I do wipe Grace's hands after Gymboree class, or any other fun kids place that may carry a bit more germs than I'd like floating around.

Tula Coast Baby Carrier
I don't leave my house unless I have a wrap, ring sling, and soft structured carrier in my car. I use my mesh Tula Coast carrier (which is SUPER breathable) in the summers!

What items, other than snacks and sunscreen would you add to this list?!
