Diaper bags tend to be large, which means small items easily can get lost. Use colorful plastic or nylon pencil pouches to store kits of supplies: one for milk/bottle supplies, one for solid food, one for diapering, etc.

Keep it simple. If you have a nanny or regular babysitter, make sure they have their own bag to use. Don't let this bag become a "catch-all." Keep just basic items like diaper changing supplies, snacks and medical supplies. Refill bag at end of each day.
Use see-through bags and sort by category for: medicines, snacks, games, outdoor activities and baby items. This is a great way for the diaper bag to hold all the essentials that a mom will need to lug around with her.
