Dressing after baby can be a difficult task. While your maternity clothes may not fit anymore, there's a chance you're not ready for your pre-baby clothes—and that's totally normal!

For the in-between period, finding great postpartum clothes can make all of the difference.

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.

School's out, and as the temperatures start to heat up, creating a summer reading list is a cool way for parents to connect with their kids and foster a love of learning. This month, Save the Children has launched a reading campaign, 100 Days of Reading, to get kids excited about books.
"Knowing what's at stake for children in America in terms of summer learning loss was a motivating factor for Save the Children to create this easy-to-do 100 Days of Reading campaign," said Carolyn Miles, CEO of Save the Children. "Read a Story, Change Their Story has the potential to make transformational change for children. We've set an ambitious goal to log 100 million minutes of reading this summer to benefit every child and hope you'll join us."
We've rounded up a list of page-turners by age group to entertain your kiddos and make them want to pick up a book and not put it down during the lazy days of summer. Help Save the Children reach 100 million minutes by logging your reading time together with the kids.
