Emergency Diaper Bag, anyone?

As a parent we probably all have one. I d a couple of them. Each one served its own purpose. One was for supplies that were often needed but too bulky to carry everywhere. One was for supplies that were very rarely needed And then the other was a mix of the two. Today I slimmed them all down into one.

Here is the list of whats in the bag that serves as an Emergency Diaper Bag. Some of these items are very rarely needed but very important if we were to need one and others are there as backups because we use so many of them but do not have enough room in our everyday bag.
