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!
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.

"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.
