Moms work hard to empower their daughters with positive affirmations to teach them that girls are not only fun, fierce and fearless, but they can also achieve anything they strive for in the future. In celebration of Women's History Month and the March 8 release of Captain Marvel (starring Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, the most powerful character in the universe), we've rounded up a few of our favorite girl power gifts, including dynamic clothes, books and toys to give little superstars a power boost to shine and make the world a better place.
Still sorting out how to balance your new bun in the oven with an old workout routine? Well, the timing is perfect to put high-tech fitness trackers to the test to monitor safe prenatal exercises, heart rates and sleep patterns while staying healthy and fit for the next nine months (and beyond, of course!). New moms must keep moving for optimal well-being, suggests G. Thomas Ruiz, MD, OB/GYN Lead at MemorialCare Orange Coast Medical Center in Fountain Valley, California. "We encourage expectant women to engage in exercise or physical activity on a regular basis throughout their pregnancy," he advises. "Women who are physically active during pregnancy tend to have smaller babies, which most women who are pushing out a kid don't mind." But what about the anxieties of pregnant moms who fear the harmful effects of radiation from such devices? "There has never been a study to demonstrate that background radiation from a cell phone or a Bluetooth device has had a deleterious effect on the outcome of pregnancy," says Dr. Ruiz. "There has been no data to determine it. We do ultrasounds on a regular basis, which is sending sound energy to the baby so we can do diagnostic work, and that is at a much higher level of energy than a cell phone. It's never been shown to demonstrate harmful effects towards the baby or the pregnancy. So moms can use their trackers to their heart's content." So stay strong and count on, Mama! From Fitbit to Bellabeat, here are are our best picks to keep new moms stepping out in style.
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.

Allergies come in all shapes and sizes, from seasonal airborne allergens to food triggers. While more widespread but not as life-threatening, airborne allergens like dust, pet dander, pollen or mold may leave your little one with red itchy eyes, congestion, or trouble breathing if they have asthma. On the other hand, if you have a child with a food allergy or sensitivity, then your main goal is to prevent cross contamination for their safety.
From allergen-free kitchen tools to an anti-allergen technology vacuum, we've rounded up items from Amazon and Walmart that will give parents a hand in protecting their child while they cope with any allergy.
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.
