I know what you’re thinking, another post of the Clark family in the park. But I have to say, we had our first taste of fall last week and I know that before you know it, all the parks will either be under a foot of snow or we’ll be gone, for good! So we’re really trying to soak it up while we can especially since the weather has been so nice.

In light of all these recent trips to the park I’ve been getting a lot of questions about how we do it logistically. What we bring with us when we go out for hours on end, so I decided to put together this list of things that I pack in the diaper bag and stroller for long days.

Diaper Bag:

  • First and foremost, diapers and wipes obviously. We usually only bring 2 for each child because in a given 6 or 8 hour period they aren’t usually going more than once and diapers can take up so much room.
  • *Like I’ve mentioned before, we’ve decided to start potty training Atticus and it’s going so well! So for him we bring a couple of Pull-Ups and we also pack around this little training porta­potty so that we can keep him on a schedule when we’re out! If we’re in the middle of the park, we could be 20 minutes away from the nearest toilet so we try to keep that with us.
  • Formula singles and a bottle for Rosie
  • Water bottle and sippy cup
  • Snacks – This usually always changes, but some of our favorites are theseGerber Yogurt Melts and Baby Mum­Mums.
  • Sunscreen
  • Mini brush (for myself)
  • A couple toys
  • And an extra battery and phone charging cord
  • Other miscellaneous things I HAVE to keep in the diaper bag are hair ties (I lose them all the time) gum (for me) and bobby pins. That sort of thing.

Stroller:

We have the Maclaren Twin Triumph. We actually downsized because we had a hard time fitting our other double into the narrow doorway of our elevator. This is definitely a more compact option and works a lot better for traveling. Much of the time the stroller baskets are used for miscellaneous items or things we need quickly. It’s usually where we put Atticus’s scooter and helmet, dolly stroller, or anything else we bring for him. We also keep this organizer for quick access items. In the stroller organizer we keep:

  • Bottles/sippy cups when they’re in use
  • Phone/wallet
  • Wet Ones disinfecting wipes and hand sanitizer

Hope this helps you out. When we’re out for a good amount of time, especially with no car, it’s nice to have a home base in your stroller and diaper bag!

Hope you have a good weekend!

THIS TIME LAST YEAR

  1. Super cute hairstyle and the kids are so adorable! Those are the items I carry in my diaper bag as well. I think that I’ve simplified the diaper bag items many times. Sometimes it gets too heavy to carry.

    1. They have a blog about their camera’s and David’s youtube channel features a post about what’s in his camera bag. He talks all about it. 🙂

  7. Hi amber! I was wondering how long you go in between getting your hair trimmed. I am trying to grow mine out but feel like it’s just getting so dead!!

    Thank you!!

  8. Hi Amber! These photos are STUNNING (as usual)!! You have such a beautiful family!! I have always wanted to move to NYC and i absolutely love kids, photography, and fashion, so your posts are always so incredibly inspiring to me!! Inloove seeing the pics of you, David, the kids, and of course the dog! All my love from Philadelphia ❤️❤️

  9. I love this hair style and your sunglasses! Another park; who cares!! I wish we had parks like this in a California! You inspire me and give me so much excitement to be a great, fun, modern, and adventurous Momma! This park looks awesome by the way totally unique! Thanks for being a great model for young girls, especially in his day in age!

  10. Oh I love the necklace, it’s so pretty – but sold out and nowhere to find anymore… ?
    However, love your hairstyle – simple and supercute!

    Greetings from a momma-to-be ☺️

  11. Hi Amber! Another great post! I love this hair style and love to recreate your looks that have braids in them, will you highly consider making a tutorial for this look!? 🙂 ps. I just watched your video from fashion week and you’re right David did do an awesome job editing it. Make sure tell him!

  12. I love seeing your posts of you and your family at the park. Your family is precious. Also, love your shirt!

  13. I absolutely adore your outfit, I always look forward to seeing all your posts about you and your adorable family!

  14. Ahhhhh Amber you and your family are a ray of the birghtest sunshine and absolutely beautiful!!!!! Those kiddos are just the cutest ever!!!!!! I am so in love with those Channel Shoes!!!!! Can’t find the anywhere!!!! 🙁 Those sunglasses love them …….just absolutely stunning on you!!!! Gorgeous as always!!!!!! Love ya!!!!! xoxoxoxoxoxoxo

  15. Like always, amazing pictures, amazing family !

    You should really do a post about all your different sunglasses. I find them always so cool !

  16. It’s fun to see how you do it! And I am totally losing hair ties ALL THE TIME. Those and bobby pins. No idea where they go, haha!

  17. I love how beautiful you always look and so put together! You are hot mama! 😉 I loe your hair and that adorable nccklace your wearing!

  18. Thanks! This was so helpful. With a newborn boy I don’t have the option to only bring 2 diapers out but soon… but since I’m still breastfeeding I don’t need to pack bottles yet so I guess that saves room. I love how gorgeous your “diaper bag” is. It doesn’t even look like one. Where’s it from? Is it made as a diaper bag or do you just make it function as one? Thanks!

    You are so inspiring that I can be on the go more one day. It’s been hard to get used to leaving the house with a 7 week old, but I want to enjoy the weather while I can.

  19. Do you bring a purse and a diaper bag? I struggle in stores with my purse, diaper bag, and car seat! I don’t feel like the diaper bag is fashionable enough to just have that (wow a first world problem.. I know! ?) so I struggle with 10 thousand things! I’m a new mom and it’s nice to see posts like this! I’ve been a reader for years so I thought I’d finally ask my first question! Love your sweet family.

  20. Love those adorable kids!
    So wish my little cute vintage pink ice cream truck, The Ice Cream Girl & Co, Columbus Georgia was closer for y’all!

  21. That mirror is so cute in your home! Where is it from?

    Also I know how it feels to need to soak in all park time as you can. It’s going to soon be hard to go out with the kids when it’s so cold. We have a one year old. Any tips of keeping them occupied in the winter

  22. Hey.
    You are amazing and you have the cutest kids. MASHALLAH(it’s the word we use to protect from evil eyes) hehe.
    Stay blessed!
    Do reply?

  23. I have a little boy And I’m pregnant but what I love the most about the post is your outfit! I love the hairdo and the glasses!
    Maybe you can do a post on how you potty trained Atticus. He has a similar personality to my son, so I think it will be super helpful 🙂

  24. Thanks for the tip!! You are so helpful to so many parents! 🙂 Thanks for sharing all of the fun goodies you carry around for your sweet babes!!
    Also- LOVING your shades. Need to find me some of those!!

    xoxo

  25. Loving this hairstyle!!! And of course your cute little family. Looks like you are having so much fun. Such a good mama! XOXO

  26. I love how much love you see between you and your sweet kiddos! Can’t wait to have that one day with my little family! Also, your whole outfit is amazing! Love the stripes and mixed with the pattern in your sunnies! Love this post!

  27. Thanks! Curious about where you got your backpack! I love the idea of backpacks for diaper bags.

  28. Love these photos, Rosie is just darling in them! Obsessed with your sunnies!! Will you do hair tutorial for this look?! LOVE

  29. Totally! I swear this was like looking at what’s in my backpack/stroller while we traipse around Toronto everyday! Wet ones are an absolute essential, hey?! On another note: my oldest son, Finn, is also potty training, would you mind sharing the link to the portable potty you bring with you?
    Thanks for sharing this! On days when I don’t feel like getting out, I’m always inspired and motivated by your little family to just get out and am always happy we did, so keep posting your Clarks in the park photos!
    Xo

    1. It’s from Honest co! I have the same one, it’s fantastic! The bigger outside pocket is insulated too. And lots of pockets/zips on the inside.

  30. I’m not a Mom but I totally think this is useful for the mothers out there. Also, I’m so pumped that Atticus’ potty training is going well. Does he just go in his portably potty out in the open?! lmao

  32. Rosie biting your nose is too funny!!! I like the new layout where you’re doing two smaller images in between larger ones, by the way. I don’t have kids yet but still love reading these types of posts 🙂

  33. YES, get outside as much as possible while the weather is still good! Loving your striped top. I don’t have any littles, but I would have loved these lists when I used to be a babysitter! You can never have too many wipes on hand 😉

  34. Sunglasses goals! Also I love the backpack style diaper bag!
    And we aren’t sick of park photos! They are so pretty!

    Xoxo

  35. What brand is your backpack? Looking for one now for traveling that is still stylish but practical.
