Every parent is in search of the safest products for their baby, and green products designed to save the planet are a perfect pick for little ones while protecting Mother Earth. "When a child is born, their immune systems are exceptionally fragile, so it's pivotal to ease the toxic overload they are exposed to during their developing years," advises Gay Browne, environmental health advisor and author of Living With a Green Heart. "If I can suggest the most important time to jump into your own personal environmental health, it would have to be the moment you decide to become a parent." In celebration of Earth Day on April 22, we've rounded up the best eco-friendly finds to help ease mom and dad's concerns and even reduce baby's carbon footprint.
Sometimes it's best to think outside of the box. Unfortunately, cleanup time is not one of them. As all parents know, kiddos believe the perfect spot for storing their toys is on the floor. While this might be convenient for all of those dolls and dinosaurs to swiftly spring into action when it's time to play, the massive mess probably isn't a good look for mom. Luckily, for everyone's sake, there are super cool storage solutions that are not only functional, they're also fun and perfect for bedrooms and playrooms. Parents can even turn tidying up into a teachable moment. "Introducing kids early on to organizing will set them up for success later in life," says Tracy McCubbin, decluttering expert and author of This Book Will Set You Free: The 7 Emotional Clutter Blocks and How to Finally Conquer Them. "Organizing their toys when they are little will teach kids how to keep their future homes neat and even manage their schedules." Time to round up the best storage solutions for keeping your kid's play space looking spick-and-span! Check out our these awesome picks to give those games and gadgets a stylish home while making mom and dad happy. Toys in the bin or bust!
Shhh...baby is asleep! Sound and white noise machines are a must-have for little ones and light sleepers. They're an excellent tool to help develop sleeping routines and provide soothing sounds while blocking loud noises to quietly calm your child. Backed by pediatricians and certified sleep specialists, the benefit of introducing a sound machine early on to your infant is to create a, "womb-like white noise that actually activates a calming reflex in the baby, which helps promote sleep," says Dr. Harvey Karp, founder of Happiest Baby and creator of the SNOO Smart Sleeper. "It also reduces waking from outside distractions like noises and lights and internal disturbances like gas and mild hunger."
When shopping for the best machine, parents should be on the lookout for a unit that blocks disturbing sounds, especially during naptime. "Sound machines help drown out the noise we can't control, this is especially important during the daytime when most outside noises occur (i.e. cars driving by, dogs barking etc)," observes Certified Child Sleep Consultant Susete Pinto. However, doctors and sleep professionals caution against keeping a loud sound machine near your sleeping baby. Always maintain the noise levels at 50 A-weighted decibels while never keeping the device too close to the crib. "I generally recommend a noise level similar to what a hair dryer or vacuum might produce," say Dr. Karp.
Sweet as a lullaby and the best method for blocking out boisterous household and outdoor noises, our top picks of sound machines will work to calm even the most restless little sleepers. Get ready to make some noise! Wait, on second thought, let's sound off on comforting white noises to soothe your sweet babe.

How do you know if your tween or child is ready for her first bra? It depends — companies make training bras for girls ages 5 or 6 up to teenage sizes. All girls develop at different rates, and it's up to each girl and her family to decide when it's time to go first-bra shopping. Some good indicators that your girl has reached training bra age is that she's expressing interest in getting one. Beginning with lightly lined bras is an easy way to introduce girls to the basics of dressing as an adult, and it's OK to let her practice (or "train") even if she isn't quite ready for the real thing. Even if your girl hasn't let you know she's in the market for a bra, it might be time to buy her first bra if she's noticeably developing, experiencing pain from lack of support or starting to be active in sports. We've rounded up great training bras for tweens, from sports bras to bralettes, from retailers like Walmart, Target, Justice and Yellowberry.
Allergies come in all shapes and sizes, from seasonal airborne allergens to food triggers. While more widespread but not as life-threatening, airborne allergens like dust, pet dander, pollen or mold may leave your little one with red itchy eyes, congestion, or trouble breathing if they have asthma. On the other hand, if you have a child with a food allergy or sensitivity, then your main goal is to prevent cross contamination for their safety.
From allergen-free kitchen tools to an anti-allergen technology vacuum, we've rounded up items from Amazon and Walmart that will give parents a hand in protecting their child while they cope with any allergy.
