What's in My Bag: Jenin Paradise

Chicago-based mama, Jenin Paradise @mrsjeninparadise wasn't interested in going back to bulky diaper bags for baby number two. She opted to use her existing totes combined with a ToteSavvy insert to create the perfect baby bag. 

Becoming a mom of two this past spring, 4 years later, I kind of had to get back into the rhythm of what it was going to be like to have a baby around again. We were definitely out of the diaper bag stage and I almost dreaded the thought of having to lug around a giant bag full of stuff. Because who wouldn’t when you have had the luxury of being able to use your handbags again?!

I knew using a diaper bag was going be part of the gig and ToteSavvy has made that process pretty much seamless. I love that I can create my very own diaper bag by simply using one of my favorite tote bags that I love. The organization system makes life A LOT easier, allowing additional space for not only my personal things but also anything we might need for our four year old and extra sanitizing items we might need when we travel out of the house to keep us all safe + healthy!

Even with all of these things, I still have plenty of room. So, on days we plan to go to my families pool — I will throw in swimsuits + swim diapers for the kiddos and my swimsuit / cover up.

    I would love to see a packing video to see how you fit / pack all these items in with room to spare. I’d also love to know what bag you are using with your tote savvy. Everything looks great! ❤️
