Before I became a mom I had somewhat decided that diaper bags weren’t really my scene. There’s nothing sexy or chic about toting a sticky, stained bag around that’s stuffed with diapers, bottles, formula, snack foods, and likely covered in dancing monkeys or giraffes riding choo-choo trains (insert gagging sound here). I’m just not that kind of mom. I preferred carrying my Louis Vuitton Artsy purse and imagined I’d just use that to tote what I needed.
Yikes! I didn’t know at that time I’d be a mom to twins! This requires much more gear than even my LV artsy could hold and I’ll be damned if I let that bag become stained or ratty. So, my first few months as a mom I carried a diaper bag I’d been given as a nanny. It wasn’t the Prada diaper bag carried by the mom, but it got the job done. Even though that bag worked just fine for my one child client, it was NOT working for me and my twins.
My first outing was to their two week pediatrician appointment. My mother was with me. We stocked the bag full of pacifiers, clth diapers, wet bags, nursing cover, changing pad cover, wipes, bottles, breastmilk , blankets, coats, baby wrap, and rattles. Heavy, much? If you think that’s too much stuff to pack for one outing you obviously don’t have twins. Trust. It’s WAY more necessary to have “stuff” when there’s two.
Sure enough, one baby starts fussing while the other is being examed so I start nursing. Then the other one starts screaming. I needed the pacifier, but it had gotten lost in the abyss of a diaper bag I used to carry. I was getting frustrated so I told my mom just to fix a bottle. Now, where did we put the bottle? Breastmilk? There was zero organization! No pockets?
Not only was it difficult to find anything I needed with the former bag, it wasn’t stylish. I never wanted to wear it or even carry it. I always stuffed it under the seats of the stroller and most of the time I didn’t even do that. I left it in the car instead and decided I’d would rather walk back out to the car to get what I needed than carry that bag.
Enter the Jujube First Lady! Total game changer!
It’s super chic and goes with my style…classic black and white striped!
It’s made from a wipeable material so there’s no need to worry about sippy cups leaking or bottles spilling over.
There’s an opening in the bottom of the bag to dump crumbs. Yep…that exists!
Wear it as a satchel/sidebody, a purse, a handbag, OR a backpack! Plus, the strap is padded for shoulder support.
Leave your purse in the car or at home. This baby has a front pockets for license, rings for keys, and a place for your phone and essentials.
There’s tons of pockets, compartments, and nets to contain EVERYthing you could ever need, or want, for baby.
My favorite part is the matching changing pad trifold that can be pulled out for changing babies in the back of the car or sketchy changing tables in public. Did I mention all of this stuff is wipeable AND machine washable?
Zippers! I didn’t realize how much the zippers matter but my other bag buttoned closed, which means things go flying out in betweek the bottons and the buttons were a pain to snap.
Before I was a mom, I’d overhear other moms saying, “I love my JujuBe.” I had no idea what they were talking about, but now, that’s me! I love my Jujube! I tell everyone how much I love my Jujube because I don’t think there’s anything like it out there. Jujube or bust.
