After you’ve had a child, you become bombarded by all the necessities. From diapers and cribs to baby proofing and bottles, there is a lot more to parenthood than adorable clothes and stuffed animals. While it is tempting to exhaust yourself with cute things for your baby and get lost in the endless diapers and laundry, make sure that you set your child up with a strong educational base. Thankfully, this base is created in thoughtfully selected educational playtime that will foster a love of learning from the beginning.

So, the kids have made it this far in elementary school without a touch of lice or an absence to their name? Score! For many moms, however, the big worries start to set in as the temperature outside drops and cold and flu season begins. If that sounds like you, don’t miss these important cold and flu season reminders:
There are a lot of things that come to mind when someone says “Mom Life.” You have visions of messy buns, leggings, runs to Walmart, lots of coffee and wine and not enough sleep. “Mom Life” means working hard to provide for your family while still caring for everyone, and oftentimes, putting yourself last. Some parts of “Mom Life” are left over from the ultimate event in motherhood, pregnancy. Stretch marks, soft tummies, and less than perky boobs are all part of “Mom Life” and for many moms, so is urinary incontinence. If you experience leaks when you laugh or sneeze, that’s incontinence and there is a discreet way to deal with this “Mom Life” issue without spending a lot of money.

Our daughter came unexpectedly at 35 weeks. My pregnancy wasn’t the easiest of the 4- my blood pressure was an issue after 25 weeks causing me to have to do ante-natal appointments once a week after 30 weeks with week 35 being the most eventful after being told my blood pressure was dangerously high and they needed to risk a premature baby to ensure I was safe. But our little Brooklynn was born perfectly healthy, happy and strong – a strength we didn’t know she would need more than anything else.
School is soon to start, or sadly (or happily… depending on your outlook) has already started. Whether the binders are already full with homework or back to school shopping is on the calendar for next week, there isn’t a reason why you shouldn’t pack up the family and take one last soire before you officially close the door on summer. If your brain is fried from the heat, and you need a bit of packing inspiration for your end of summer getaway, we’ve got you covered, literally.

As a parent, the absolute last thing in the world you need to deal with is losing a minute of precious sleep. Your sleep is already severely limited, especially with a new baby or young child. Heck, when your kid is a teenager we suspect you stop sleeping well from worrying about them coming home before curfew safely. No matter what stage of life you are currently in, there are lots of things that can affect your sleep. While you can’t do much about a baby waking you up or fretting over a 17 year old, if snoring (by either you or your partner) is disrupting your night, you can deal with that problem. Several of us here at Daily Mom have dealt with snoring messing with our sleep, and we know how frustrating it can be.
This spring, JPMA, the Juvenile Products Manufacturer Association, put on its first ever baby show. Incredible brands offering the newest and greatest products for babies and young children all came together at the Anaheim Convention Center for a trade show that also included a consumer day!

She asked the questions we all want to ask. She looked for products that really make life with a baby easier and shared what she found with us. Here are our Editor’s Top Picks from the JPMA 2017 Baby Show.
Summer is almost over and a lot of us are finally dreaming about the cooler season of fall. Pumpkin spice everything, boots, scarves, and warm apple cider are just a few of the daily daydreams you may be having as you pack up your inflatable pool and pull out the fire pit. For many places in the United States, fall is one of the few times during the year where everyone actually wants to be outside. And even though you probably spent a fair share of time outside this summer, this time you don’t have to worry about bugs, humidity, or sunburns. Fall is the time to get the kids outside before it gets too cold, so why not create a backyard that both you and the kids (and probably some other kids from the neighborhood) can enjoy before winter cabin fever sets in!
Back to school is looming, and you’re probably thinking of the mountains of tasks you need to do to prepare for the return of your little ones to school, including the new stuff you have to buy. We feel your pain! But if you’re already dreading the time and money you will spend acquiring things, imagine how much worse you will feel when they go missing and need to be replaced? Luckily, there is a solution. There is a fabulous range of name labels and other personalized products that are not only stylish and fun, but they will also survive being wet, dropped, scratched… anything your child cares to throw at it. Well, almost anything…
In the daily struggle of what to wear, how many days would you say you end up in a comfy and stretchy pair of leggings and a plain tee shirt? We mean, some days doesn’t it just feel like the true “mom uniform”? While we’re sure we all enjoy getting dressed up, sometimes as moms it is just easiest to grab, put on, and go be a superhero. You are the packer of lunches, lover of amazing and spirited little ones, cleaner of toilets, late night researcher of everything parenthood related, and a just all around hardworking mama. Shouldn’t your daily t-shirt collection get a boost from a few companies that make products designed JUST FOR YOU? We certainly think so. Check out these amazing graphic tee companies who are certainly upping the anti for the perfect mom shirts!
Traveling with kids of any age adds an additional layer of planning, but hitting the road while your little one is still considered a lap child means you can save money and create memories as a family.

We’ve put together our tips for traveling with tots this summer that will help you enjoy your trip.
