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.
We are a team of fun loving, web combing, baby wearing moms and dads who saw a need for a website where we could share all the useful tips we come across daily. Modern mothers need one place where they can learn how to raise a baby, cook a meal, build a fire, save some money and then spend it, and do it all while looking perfect and being green.
Ok, who are we kidding? It would be impossible, but we still try.
Daily Mom will bring to you everything that can be of use to any mom and mom-to-be. We are here to educate, laugh with you, and make your lives easier (or harder depending on how many crafts you decide to do).

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.
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. With the right preparation, vacationing with a baby can be a time you look fondly upon for years to come.
We’ve put together our tips for traveling with tots this summer that will help you enjoy your trip.
Summertime is for backyard barbecues, beach days, vacations, enjoying the beautiful weather, and spending time with your kiddos — not spending time in front of the mirror with an over the top beauty routine. There’s an easy way to get ready this summer using low maintenance products that don’t suck up the time that we could be swinging in a hammock. Whether you’re the ‘brush your teeth and go’ type, or you want a full face of makeup, there’s something for everyone on our list of must-have low maintenance beauty products for summer.
Ah, summer time. Time to be outside. Time for fun in the sun. Time where the kids are home all.the.time.
If you are a self-proclaimed #fitmom, trying to find time when you can workout is seemingly more difficult in the summer than it is during the school year. Even though you don’t have the busy-ness of the regular school year, summer time seems to be more busy instead of less busy. Swim lessons, pool time, vacations, summer activities, summer camp shuffling, and never-ending playdates can make getting your workout in difficult. So sometimes you have to improvise, and that improvisation will come in the form of “What can I do to keep the kids occupied and outside long enough to actually get my heart rate up?”
If you are still wearing your old swimsuit from two years ago, now is the time for a new suit! With all the amazing swimwear brands offering styles for everyone, there is no reason not to order some swimwear right this minute. Find your dream bikini! Your swimwear should suit your body and your personal style. You can have high fashion combined with comfort, support, and quality if you shop in the right place.
Independence Day is right around the corner. We can just about smell the hot dogs and hear the fireworks. Every Fourth of July, Americans head outside to celebrate our country’s independence at the beach, the lake, at a baseball game, or just in the backyard. We all party in our own way, which is fitting for a holiday where we celebrate our freedom! One of the things that makes the Fourth of July so special is busting out all our patriotic gear. This is the one day of the year when all of the U.S.A. is on the same page. Republican or Democrat, Liberal or Conservative, this is the day we all come together as Americans and are grateful for this beautiful place in which we live. We are especially excited at Daily Mom this year, and want to share with you our favorite finds for the Fourth of July.

Child obesity has reached some very alarming heights in the past few years, and it’s the job of every concerned parent to make sure that this doesn’t happen to their kid. Childhood is great because most mistakes can just be wiped off clean with a sponge, given the proper sponge is used. What that means is that even chubby kids can play sports to lose weight and maintain their health. It’s the most effective treatment you’ll find anywhere. In that respect, here are some of the best sports to practice based on the learning curve and how easy it is to get into them.
