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!

The fur is flying again this holiday season! Pomsies, the fluffy interactive toys that were a huge hit last year, are once again topping the lists of the best Christmas toys for kids in 2018 and selling out fast. Pomsies—as most parents already know—are petite, supercute fluff balls that wrap around kids' wrists, hair, clothing or backpacks, and have eyes that light up and change color, depending on their mood. The collection of in-demand virtual pets (move over, Fingerlings!) is mostly made up of kitties such as Pomsies Sherbert, but the pom-pom pack also includes Pomsies unicorn Luna, Pomsies dragon Zoey and Pomsies koala Sydney. Both Amazon and Walmart currently have Pomsies in stock, but they're going quickly (so maybe don't wait for those Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals). Here are some of the most popular Pomsies to shop right now, plus where to buy them.
Sometimes it's best to think outside of the box. Unfortunately, cleanup time is not one of them. As all parents know, kiddos believe the perfect spot for storing their toys is on the floor. While this might be convenient for all of those dolls and dinosaurs to swiftly spring into action when it's time to play, the massive mess probably isn't a good look for mom. Luckily, for everyone's sake, there are super cool storage solutions that are not only functional, they're also fun and perfect for bedrooms and playrooms. Parents can even turn tidying up into a teachable moment. "Introducing kids early on to organizing will set them up for success later in life," says Tracy McCubbin, decluttering expert and author of This Book Will Set You Free: The 7 Emotional Clutter Blocks and How to Finally Conquer Them. "Organizing their toys when they are little will teach kids how to keep their future homes neat and even manage their schedules." Time to round up the best storage solutions for keeping your kid's play space looking spick-and-span! Check out our these awesome picks to give those games and gadgets a stylish home while making mom and dad happy. Toys in the bin or bust!
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. But this year, Fingerlings HUGS are at the top of every kid's wish list and one of the best Christmas toys of 2018. The adorable interactive plushies feature long arms that can wrap around your kid for a cuddle, and they also give kisses, giggle, repeat after your child and — whoops! — pass gas. The collection includes animals such as a unicorn and sloth, but we have to say that Fingerlings monkeys Boris and Bella might just be the cutest toys ever. While you'll likely find sweet Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals on these cute critters on toy store shelves across the country, there are even better deals — and exclusive animals! — available online at Amazon, Walmart and Target now. So, stop arguing with your little one about whether they're getting a real puppy or kitten, and tell them Santa might just deliver a monkey, sloth or unicorn pal instead! Shop the Fingerlings collection below.
