Help Save the Children celebrate the dedication of a deserving young leader working hard for change.
Pass the time on those long summer days—and keep your kiddos learning during their time off from school—by cracking open a great book. From hilarious stories to heartfelt coming-of-age tales, these are some of the best children's books out there right now for elementary and middle school kids.
With summer just a few weeks away, families are going to want to forgo the indoors in favor of spending time outside. While your family may have a few vacations planned, there really is nothing better than spending time relaxing in your own backyard and creating lasting memories with your children. Of course, parents have a lot on their plates already so committing to a full backyard renovation might not be in the schedule (or the budget). Luckily, Walmart has everything parents need to create an oasis right in their very own outdoor space. From swings to firepits (and even stylish storage solutions), here are eight ways busy parents can create the backyard of their dreams!
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics Childhood Sleep Guidelines, infants should sleep between 12 to 16 hours, while growing toddlers should grab between 11 to 14 hours of shut-eye. That's why picking the perfect crib mattress is key for a good night (and naptime) slumber for your little lamb.
While there are several factors to consider when choosing a crib mattress and setting up a safe sleep environment for your child. Parents should select "a firm mattress that is made for the crib, meaning perfect in size with a tight-fitting sheet," suggests S. Daniel Ganjian, MD, a pediatrician at Providence Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica, California. "There should be no space between the mattress and the sides of the crib."
And other than a fitted sheet, there shouldn't be anything in the baby's bed, particularly during the first year. "The most common mistake that parents make is putting something in the crib besides a tightly swaddled baby," says Gina Posner, MD, a pediatrician at MemorialCare Orange Coast Medical Center in Fountain Valley, CA. "There should be no stuffed animals, no crib bumpers and no sleep positioners. Just make sure it is a new crib that is up to current standards."
Dr. Ganjian also advises against using an old crib and mattress. "Hand me downs used to be great, but now you really have to watch out for them, since many have been recalled or are dangerous because there is some subtle defect that you might not be aware of."
In celebration of Sleep Awareness Week, we've rounded up our top picks of comfy, crib mattresses with quality features to ensure that tired newborns and tots transitioning to a toddler bed sleep like babies so Mom and Dad can rest a whole lot easier.
Finding the right products to help busy families keep their houses clean can be tough—and finding ones that are environmentally-friendly and made of natural ingredients can be even harder. If you're looking for eco-friendly cleaning products that are safe for families with allergies, small children and pets, check out these great options from Amazon, Walmart, Target and more.
Pull out the beach towels and sunglasses, warm weather is finally here! For some pregnant women, finding something to wear to the pool or beach can tough, especially if you need more support or coverage than usual. From cute maternity bikinis to trendy one-piece suits, here is some of the best maternity swimwear out there from retailers like Amazon, Motherhood Maternity and more.
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! Losing the baby weight healthily takes time, and it can take a while for the uterus to shrink back to its normal size. For the in-between period, finding great postpartum clothes can make all of the difference. For a range of clothes that are flattering, supportive and stretchy enough to accommodate your post-baby body, check out these stylish options.
You gotta catch 'em all! The highly anticipated live action film, Pokémon Detective Pikachu hits theaters on May 10th, and fans are already eager to get their hands on movie merchandise. But what keeps kids and parents so passionate about the famous Japanese characters? "The ever-expanding Pokémon franchise has been a beacon for kids and kids at heart since the original video games launched more than 20 years ago," says J.C. Smith, Senior Director of Consumer Marketing of The Pokémon Company International. "Since its introduction, the beloved animation series, the ever-popular Pokémon Trading Card Game, Pokémon GO and a wide variety of video games and apps have offered fans a variety of ways to engage with our iconic collection of Pokémon like Pikachu. With its family-friendly messages of sportsmanship, friendship and community, Pokémon is a brand that parents know and trust."
It is this reason that longtime gaming fans and new Pokémon lovers are buzzing about the soon-to-be-released feature film. "Pokémon is on the same level as Super Mario Bros. and Pac-Man," adds James Zahn, Toy Expert and Senior Editor of The Pop Insider. "It's never gone away, and it's constantly being reinvented to stay fresh and relevant. When Detective Pikachu was announced, there was a collective eyebrow raised at the prospect of Ryan Reynolds playing a version of the iconic yellow creature. When that first trailer hit, audiences could see exactly why he's perfect for the part. It's so absurd that it's genius. This will be a great chance for parents and kids to connect at the movies." And for those die-hard fans, we've rounded up the latest Pokémon launches and hot-sellers that will soon be flying off store shelves. We guarantee that super-sleuth Pikachu fans won't have to search hard to find these fun pieces!
As warmer weather sets in, we find ourselves dreaming of sun, sand and our favorite summer accessories. Sunglasses are one of the most important summer staples—they protect our eyes from the sun's UV rays and keep us comfortable while we take in the sights of the season. From cute baby, toddler and kid sunglasses to cool sunglasses for women and men, these are the best picks from retailers like Amazon, Target and Nordstrom.
Humidifiers can be helpful for adults and kids who have allergies and whose sinuses are aggravated by dry air. Although humid air can offer short-term relief for irritated sinuses, allergens like mold and dust mites can thrive in air that is too humid or humidifiers that aren't cleaned regularly. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's recommendations for the best allergy-relieving results. Both warm mist and cool mist humidifiers can provide allergy relief, it's up to personal preference which you choose to use. If you're looking for the best humidifiers for allergies, check out these products from retailers like Amazon, Walmart and Target.
