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.
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.

Open wide! Those baby teeth are beginning to break through which means your child may start feeling cranky thanks to teething pain. Parents should be on the lookout for the first signs to help soothe and pacify little ones. "First, it is important to understand the symptoms of teething. A low-grade fever (less than 101) may be a sign," says Danelle Fisher, MD, FAAP (Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics), Vice Chair of Pediatrics at Providence Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica, Calif. "Teething babies may have a clear runny nose or may have poop that is slightly more runny than usual and get a mild diaper rash. Also, your baby may be fussy or not eat as well. For any symptoms that are not mild or last longer than 24 hours, consult your pediatrician." To help alleviate your babe's irritating gum pain, we've rounded up the best teething toys to help ease the discomfort. Check out our top picks of chewy choices well worth biting into!
