I had the pleasure of chatting with Rebecca Cohn, the creator of the NappieSack™. Rebecca is a local mom of two girls, who is shaping the way moms are organizing their everyday diaper bags in a very trendy and sleek way! Learn a little more about Rebecca and the NappieSack™.
Where are you from originally and how long have you lived in town?
I am originally from East Hills, moved Huntington in 2009.
What are some things you love about living in Huntington?
There are so many things I love about living in Huntington. The diversity of the town, at any given day no matter what time of year there are always people out walking around the village, hiking, there are always things to do. The diversity in creativity in the community is amazing. The strong community vibe really is what keeps our roots here. There is so much history in the town as well. Also, the after-school activities are great. They allow us to meet kids and families from different districts that are so close to us!
Child(ren) and Age(s)?
Harper 8, Phoebe 5
One thing people would be surprised to know about you…
My enthusiasm – I wear many hats! From NappieSack™ to momlife to social media work!
Anyone special you’d like to thank for helping you through parenthood?
My husband for being a great partner in life! Also, all the women I have met here. These women once started as just “mom friends” and the friendships have grown to real deep connections who I now call family! Our families are a great part of each others lives now. And I have to say the community of Nursery School teachers at Huntington Jewish Center. My kids have been out of the school for a while but I can always go back to them for advice.
Tell us a little about NappieSack™!
What is a NappieSack™?
A modern-day solution, that is a organizational insert or bag into a diaper bag! It can turn any bag from a tote or your husbands’ bag to a diaper bag/organizer! Lightweight, multiple colors, your bag falls over nothing is falling out!
What inspired you to create the NappieSack™?
Originally made the sack for myself; I was sick of carrying more than one bag as a new mom. It evolved into something greater than just an at home project.
How has this community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?
The encouragement from my friends, and word of mouth through social media is amazing. There are so many working moms from home and doing impactful things that are helping each other out! A big supporter is Jill Sieman (@glamamom). She has been a huge outlet for me and has helped me connect with some many different people. And without a doubt mom supported in my everyday life, as well as on social media!
