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.

Fingerlings were one of the hottest toys last holiday season. In fact, they were so popular that Fingerlings Minis and even Fingerlings keychains soon followed.

When it first hit bookstores in 2004, actress and new mother Jenny McCarthy's "Belly Laughs" became a "New York Times"-bestseller,... popular for its candid discussion of the joys of pregnancy-the gassiness, constipation, queasiness, and exhaustion, plus the forgetfulness, crankiness, and constant worry. Never shy, frequently crude, and always laugh-out-loud funny, McCarthy covers it all in the grittiest of girlfriend detail, from morning sickness and hormonal rage, to hemorrhoids, pregnant sex, and the torture and sweet relief that is delivery. In July 2013, Barbara Walters confirmed that McCarthy would officially become a co-host on "The View" when it launches its seventeenth season in September. She will surely bring the outspoken humor that has made "Belly Laughs" such a perennial seller to the hit show. read more
