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!
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.
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.
Whether daylight savings time has the mom in your life feeling a little out of funk or she's just been meaning to catch up on sleep since entering motherhood, she deserves a little TLC. But if going to a spa doesn't fit into your schedule or budget, there are still plenty of luxe products and treatments to let you pamper yourself at home. From restorative moisturizing hair masks to indulgent, fragrant body oils, there's something for every mom to enjoy, from retailers like Amazon, Nordstrom and Crabtree & Evelyn.
Just like mom, dad has to carry a heavy load. When he's out and about with baby, he needs to be armed with the right gear to tote everything his little one needs including diapers, wipes, bottles and baby food just to name a few of the necessities that packing parents must not forget. Whether you're a stay-at-home dad or on daddy daycare duty, we've got a handle on the trendiest diaper bags that are as fab as they are functional. From the best backpacks to trendy tough guy totes, these top picks are a mixed bag guaranteed to make sure that dad doesn't lose any cool points in the style department.
