Cleanups On the Go

Face it, it’s no longer your car — it’s just a really big diaper bag. Here are a few tips for stocking it up and maybe having a better time on the road.

Know your rest rooms

Unlike gas station restrooms, fast food restaurants usually have the best facilities for a comfortable change. Often a shopping mall will be your best bet for a pit-stop off the highway because you’ll have more restaurants and stores to choose from.

Stay sanitized

Pack hand sanitizer for you to use after each diaper change. Half the battle of keeping the baby clean and healthy is keeping yourself clean, too.

Double bag it

Reuse plastic grocery bags for soiled diapers. Simply twist the bag, pull the handles down and knot underneath for a double-bag effect — and less odor.

Don’t underestimate the mess

Just when you think it’s over, sometimes it’s only beginning. So prepare for more than one mess. And keep those extra clothes and diapers in the car at all times so you don’t even have to think about it.

Use DVDs and books sparingly

Motion sickness can be caused by any number of things, and lots of kids get it from watching a TV in a moving car. So even though videos might help keep the car a little quieter on long trips, it could also cause headaches down the road.

Extra wipes are your friend

You might think your car is getting cluttered with stuff you don’t need — until you need it all in one day. Be prepared with diapers, wipes, a garbage bag or two, and even paper towels.

Healthy snacks can help

Or at least simple ones. Raisins. Animal crackers. Graham crackers. Kids love em, they’re entertaining, and they can prevent calls for unnecessary fast-food stops.

Bring the diapers you trust

Finally, make sure you’ve got a trustworthy diaper. Did you know you can get HUGGIES® Diapers and Wipes delivered to your door? Buying online is convenient—and it might save you a little money. Click here to find stores that sell HUGGIES® Products near you.

    Rated 0 out of 5 by It takes forever for my son and I to get out the door. We will plan a morning excursion and maybe just maybe get out in the afternoon. Having all of these things packed up in the car ahead of time and always, will make this so much easier! August 12, 2014
    Rated 0 out of 5 by I find getting out is a little more time consuming than it used to be before having children. This article provides some great ways to be prepared all the time so you don't even have to think about it! It would be smart to have everything you need on hand to make jobs much more convenient. That way baby is happy and that makes mommy happy too! We all know that babies are unpredictable and having the necessary tools in the car will avoid stressful moments even if going to the grocery store for an hour. So, having extra wipes, garbage bags, hand sanitizer is the way to go! January 31, 2013
    Rated 0 out of 5 by LOL! I never used to pay attention to the size of a restroom or even where they were. Now, whenever I walk into a store I take note of where the restroom is and how comfortable they are for changes. For example, Ikea has a wonderful "Mommy's Room" complete with lovely liners for the change table, a counter to put my bag and other supplies on and fabulous armchairs for feeding. Costco, on the other hand, is tiny with people drying their hands with the air dryer on one side of me and other people reaching over my son to get to the paper towels. September 21, 2012
