Four diapers + two onesies + wipes + juice boxes + laptop + wallet = one overloaded mom.
Let Serena & Lily’s new Deluxe Gypsy Tote diaper bag system lighten things up. With a spot for everything from your cell phone to her sippies, the machine-washable carry-all makes grab-and-go easy.
Three chic designs (playful Prague, eye-catching Peacock, and understated Gobi) coordinate with S&L’s elegant slings and camouflage the smart interior, which is goo resistant and lined with oodles of pockets. Swap in matching components (diaper clutch, changing pad) depending on the day’s game plan.
For work, stow your laptop and loop the leather tie to keep all under wraps; at playgroup, expand to carry spare clothes and Kidoodle’s favorite stuffed friend.
It’s the perfect solution.
