Shhh...baby is asleep! Sound and white noise machines are a must-have for little ones and light sleepers. They're an excellent tool to help develop sleeping routines and provide soothing sounds while blocking loud noises to quietly calm your child. Backed by pediatricians and certified sleep specialists, the benefit of introducing a sound machine early on to your infant is to create a, "womb-like white noise that actually activates a calming reflex in the baby, which helps promote sleep," says Dr. Harvey Karp, founder of Happiest Baby and creator of the SNOO Smart Sleeper. "It also reduces waking from outside distractions like noises and lights and internal disturbances like gas and mild hunger."
When shopping for the best machine, parents should be on the lookout for a unit that blocks disturbing sounds, especially during naptime. "Sound machines help drown out the noise we can't control, this is especially important during the daytime when most outside noises occur (i.e. cars driving by, dogs barking etc)," observes Certified Child Sleep Consultant Susete Pinto. However, doctors and sleep professionals caution against keeping a loud sound machine near your sleeping baby. Always maintain the noise levels at 50 A-weighted decibels while never keeping the device too close to the crib. "I generally recommend a noise level similar to what a hair dryer or vacuum might produce," say Dr. Karp.
Sweet as a lullaby and the best method for blocking out boisterous household and outdoor noises, our top picks of sound machines will work to calm even the most restless little sleepers. Get ready to make some noise! Wait, on second thought, let's sound off on comforting white noises to soothe your sweet babe.
From tubs and toys to soaps and shampoos, here's what your baby needs for a fun and soothing bathtime routine.
How do you know if your tween or child is ready for her first bra? It depends — companies make training bras for girls ages 5 or 6 up to teenage sizes. All girls develop at different rates, and it's up to each girl and her family to decide when it's time to go first-bra shopping. Some good indicators that your girl has reached training bra age is that she's expressing interest in getting one. Beginning with lightly lined bras is an easy way to introduce girls to the basics of dressing as an adult, and it's OK to let her practice (or "train") even if she isn't quite ready for the real thing. Even if your girl hasn't let you know she's in the market for a bra, it might be time to buy her first bra if she's noticeably developing, experiencing pain from lack of support or starting to be active in sports. We've rounded up great training bras for tweens, from sports bras to bralettes, from retailers like Walmart, Target, Justice and Yellowberry.

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!
