Baby’s Bug-Out Bag – What to Include

baby's bug out bagMy baby’s bug out bag is a very different matter compared to my own bug out bag needs. Most prepping for babies focuses on bringing survival supplies either in a separate diaper bag or your emergency bag because a baby doesn’t carry a bag, obviously.

While preparing with infants, it’s easy to become overwhelmed. It’s an essential part of your survival strategy, even if you don’t have any newborns in your family or support network right now. A long-term disaster is inevitable, even if you take all the necessary precautions to avoid it.

Diapers and formulas would take up a lot of room and be quite expensive to store. Although babies require more than just clean diapers and formula to survive, even contemplating how to procure and keep these two necessities might be a bit overwhelming.

It’s essential to make an inventory of everything you’ll need, start small and collect a few items from each category on the list every pay period, and learn how to make or produce as many of the necessary supplies as possible.

Diapers for Your Baby’s Bug Out Bag

There is no way to store enough diapers to keep your baby clean for an extended period, no matter how prepared you believe you are. Changing a baby’s diaper at least ten times a day is essential for their health, which poses an obvious issue.

Keep reading to learn how you can overcome this diaper issue with your baby’s bug out bag.

Relieving Diaper Rashes With Home Remedies

Among the various uses for coconut oil as a natural medicine at home are diaper rash treatment and prevention. You can use the carrier oil to soothe your baby’s rash and soothe the pain that comes with loud sobbing by gently massaging the oil into the affected area.

Diaper rashes can be soothed and dried up with a chamomile-based ointment. Mix 2 tablespoons of powdered chamomile flowers and 14 cups of cornstarch to make a natural diaper rash treatment. For every diaper change, apply a small amount of the powder mixture on your baby’s bottom. The combination can also be applied to the rash as soon as it occurs.

You’ll need to change your baby’s diapers roughly 300 times a month to keep them clean and prevent diaper rash. Diapers for a 12-month or longer SHTF scenario don’t require a math genius to figure out how many you’ll need to stockpile.

The Diaper Solution

Special overnight diapers are designed to be more absorbent than traditional diapers, but this changing your infant less simply increases the risk of nappy rash.
The adoption of traditional cloth diapers instead of disposables would be significantly more cost-effective and space-efficient in the long run. Even beginner sewing enthusiasts could make cloth diapers and inserts in less than 30 minutes using free online patterns.

Babies are a huge source of stress in an emergency.

The best way to deal with this is to be prepared.

A diaper bag is a wonderful place to begin when it comes to packing. For adequate supplies for three days, take everything in a diaper bag and multiply it by three. These are some examples:
-Wet wipes, diapers, and diaper bags are all included.
-Weaning formula (bottles, mixes, emergency formula)
-Dressing in a new outfit
-Infant food

-Thin baby blankets and swaddling cloths
-Comforters and toys for teething
-Carrier for a baby

Even though there’s a lot to consider while preparing for a baby’s bug out bag, taking a few minutes to sit down and plan can make any emergency much less stressful.
