How to Change a Diaper on a Hike

We’re back with more in our hiking with babies and toddlers series today.

If you’ve been following us every Wednesday for the past few weeks you know that I’m a huge fan of packing light (it can be done when hiking with kiddos) and starting every hike with full bellies and empty diapers. 

But, as a parent it’s inevitable that no matter how many times we change a diaper before a hike, a mountain top blow out is gonna happen.

Today, we’re talking about changing diapers on the trails and how to pack out those icky dirty diapers.

We use disposable diapers when we hike and we pack out dirty diapers in plastic ziploc bags. Not the “greenest” option but there is also a choice of cloth diapers and biodegradable diapers, wipes and bags.

I haven’t taken my kiddos on any extended overnight trips so I’d love to hear how other hikers manage several days worth of diapers. The weight from dirty diapers can really start to add up after a while.

What works for your family?
