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.
Spending time in the water with your little one is a great way to celebrate warm weather—but hitting the pools, beaches and splash pads with babies and toddlers who are still in diapers can feel like a hassle.

We've rounded up the best disposable and reusable swim diapers with leak-proof construction you can count on and adorable styles and patterns that are sure to make a splash.

Baby accessorizing is nothing new, especially headwear. Little ones are known to lose heat through their heads, so a little coverage over that fuzzy head is key in their early months—then make it fashion! These days, celebrity mommies and mommy bloggers everywhere take to Instagram daily to show off how they're dressing up their little ones, and we can't help but swoon. One style, in particular, has been taking baby fashion by a storm: Headwraps and top knots.
This sweet look is a chic upgrade from your average beanie or little hat. It can be spotted on the babies of a lot of celebrity moms from Hilary Duff to Kate Hudson and Khloe Kardashian. If your infant is always on the move, the turban and top knots are designed to stay put, unlike some other hats and accessories that spend more time on the floor than on your baby's noggin. The wraps are easy to slide on, too—yes, even on a very squirmy babe. We've hand-picked our favorite turbans, top knots and headwraps from Amazon, Etsy and more so your stylish baby can don some flair, without sacrificing comfort.
