Akerman squeezes life into bag

Malin Akerman’s “whole life” exists inside a baby bag after becoming a mother four months ago.

The 35-year-old actress believes everything she needs to survive on a day-to-day basis can be squeezed into her baby’s tote.

The actress who gave birth to her son Sebastian four months ago told Us Weekly of her Tokidoki Ju.Ju.Be carrier: "I can fit my whole life inside."

The Swedish-born beauty, who is married to drummer Roberto Zincone, revealed the items she takes out include cleaning and feeding products for her adorable little boy. "We're riding in style with burp cloths,” she said. “One of my friends gave me a few with the letter Z for Zincone on them.”

Sebastian is normally fed with “half breast and half Nutramigen,” however when Malin’s husband is taking care of their child, she has a trick for keeping her tot well fed. "He doesn't like the taste of pacifiers, but I just dip the tip in Colic Calm, and he'll chomp on that because it's a bit sweet,” she admitted. “It's a good trick for when Dad takes care of him because Dad doesn't have boobs!"

Malin also cleverly uses her baby devices to store her own snacks. The star, whose new television show Trophy Wife debuts on ABC September 24, makes sure she sticks to a healthy diet. "My Medela breast-milk cooler is also great for holding snacks for me! My fave is Muller Yogurt,” she admitted. “It tastes like dessert, but it's nutritious."

The actress keeps Sebastian entertained with plenty of toys. She also ensures he is always looking his best by packing extra clothes. “At this age, Sebastian is starting to be very tactile and discovering his hands. He likes this Littlephant stuffed elephant with a music box inside," she confessed. "Extra onesies are necessities. Most of his are by the Swedish company Lively. He's a boy, so things swing in different directions in the diaper and sometimes leak out!"
