The diaper bag. It is a necessary part of parenthood, from baby's first few days in this world well into what may be their toddler years. It can seem daunting at first to try and determine what defines "must-have" versus "meh, maybe not" on-the-go gear. That's why we've rounded up our favorite diaper bag essentials, from a few ideas as to what to pack in a diaper bag for the hospital to what might even be a bit of a "bonus" for mom and dad. Speaking of, not much differs when it comes to diaper bag essentials for dad or mom, but guys on the go may appreciate a diaper bag backpack or duffle of their very own. You know, to avoid potential paisley prints or darling designs perhaps less desired by some dudes.

There are times when we don't want glitter or ruffles or confusing designs splattered all over our kids' clothes. That's why we love Primary. Their clothes are basic and simple and can be worn over and over again. Another reason we love Primary? They're also making Halloween easy by inspiring parents to take matters into their own hands to create clever and adorable DIY Halloween costumes without having to pick up a needle and thread. Best of all, the costumes can have a second life—the hoodie your little guy wore for his dragon costume can be the same hoodie he wears to school the following week — minus the scales, of course. Scroll to see our favorite Primary DIY costume picks, along with details on how to make them and where to buy the essential pieces.

As a child, did you pretend to live in a castle by arranging old blankets over the couch and chairs? There was something so fun about sitting underneath mom's old sheets. Now think how much more awesome it would be to actually have a bed that looks like a mini house! Enter the toddler house bed, also known as a Montessori floor bed.
These beds are exactly what they sound like: Picture a house-shaped frame above the mattress, complete with windows, a door and a kitchen (OK, just kidding about the kitchen). But now picture your little angel's precious head resting underneath one of these magical creations.
While this may seem like a cool, new way to sleep, the floor bed concept actually dates back to the early 20th century teaching philosophy called the Montessori Method, which focuses on placing everything a child needs to learn and explore at the child's level. So, by placing their bed on the floor, you give children independence and a chance to learn on their own terms.
Here, we've rounded up some of our favorite toddler house beds that are ready to take up residence in dreamland.
