By my third child I learned that if I am not prepared, I will have unnecessary stress.
There are lots of little things that you can do to make life with littles easier and keeping the right kid-related items in your vehicle is one of them.
Car Essentials Every Mom Should Keep In Her Car
Here are the 12 things every super mom should keep in her car.
1. Extra Diapers
If your child is in diapers, this is always a must! This keeps your car clean and fresh, and avoids necessary trips to the car wash.
An extra pack of wipes can be a life-saver. Not just for diaper changes, these come in handy after pumping gas, wiping hands after snacks, or even emergency stain removal.
- Formulated without: Ammonia, bleach, phthalates, sulfates
- Fragrance free
- Plant derived cleaning power

3. Healthy Snack Stash
4. Distractions to occupy time
Because runny noses are just a way of life.
6. Anti-bacterial hand sanitizer
Of course the safe kind. This is essential to keep you and your child healthy and safe from any diseases that could be prevented by keeping your hands clean at all times.
7. Trash bags
Your car is always a mess, whether its snack wrappers, used tissues, or empty water bottles. Doggie pick up bags work nicely and are compact.

8. A Blanket
Whether it is to spread out at an impromptu picnic, it is cooler than you expected at the soccer game, or the kids just need the comfort of a warm blanket for a long road trip.
9. Change of clothes for each child
Because no matter what, someone will always spill something on their clothes, get sick, or will end up muddy or wet!
10. First aid kit
