You’re expecting. Congratulations! Even though you are the only person in your relationship that is physically pregnant, your partner is expecting too. Having a baby for the first time brings a lot of unknowns for both of you. Don’t forget about Daddy when you are preparing for life with baby. Dads should be parents with moms, 50-50. While Mama may get all the attention with her growing baby belly, here are 11 tips to prepare Dad for a new baby.
Mother’s Day is a time to show the moms in your life how much you love and appreciate them. Oftentimes, however, we struggle to find something perfect for the ones who have done so much for us over the years. There are always the classic gifts like jewelry, flowers, and a special family brunch, but sometimes we want our gift for Mother’s Day to be a little more unique and different than the typical gifts. Daily Mom has you covered if you’re looking for something a little different this Mother’s Day with our favorite unique gifts for the person who has sacrificed so much.
To many, Mother’s Day seems to creep up on us quietly, kind of like a mom who has an inkling her kid is being just a little too quiet. On top of the fast approaching holiday, it can be hard to find just the right gift for the person who has done so much for you and for your family. Luckily, Daily Mom is here to help you find the perfect gift for the most important person in your life. We have come up with our Top Gifts for Moms this Mother’s Day so you can get the best for the best.
We all know how important oral hygiene is for our little ones, and the earlier we start taking care of our babies’ gums and teeth, the better the chance we have of building healthy dental habits when they’re bigger. Even before those first tiny teeth break through the gums, dentists encourage parents to clean baby’s gums after each feeding. Our only options for doing so have been a wet washcloth or one of those silicone infant toothbrushes that you wear on your fingertip, and once teeth start breaking through, finding a super soft toothbrush that cleans gently enough not to irritate those sensitive gums can be quite the task. But FOREO from Sweden wants to make it easy on us parents with their ISSA mikro sonic baby toothbrush, specifically designed for the smallest of brushers, from infancy to four years of age.
Of all the decisions we have to make as parents, choosing a good car seat for our child is one of the most important ones we’ll make. In fact, you legally need a car seat from the moment you take your baby home from the hospital until he or she is big enough to safely fit into adult seat belts. Up until recently, this requirement would have most parents spending hundreds of dollars on infant carriers, convertible car seats, and boosters. But what if you could buy one car seat that would fit your child for as long as they needed to be in a car seat?
Today we’ll look at Maxi-Cosi’s Pria 85 Max and how it is changing the way we approach car seat safety from 5 to 85 lbs.

In the past, home security meant locks and alarms. It was all about keeping the bad guys out and keeping our stuff safe while we were gone. The meaning of home security has definitely evolved, and keeping our homes secure isn’t just about the stuff anymore. Home security is staying up to date on the status of your home, and the people in it, while you’re away. Up until now, tracking the status of your home was a little complicated (and expensive). You could have professionals install cameras and sensors, and pay a monthly fee for monitoring, or you could go the DIY route, but lose out on the professional monitoring service. With advancements in technology, there is a new solution for home security that will keep your home safe without breaking the bank.
Teaching your children about responsibility and tidiness can seriously be a full time job for many of us. If you’re anything like us, we prefer an orderly and picked-up household. Lots of times, that is a pipe-dream for many parents. Keeping their rooms tidy is like pulling teeth for many children, and that’s just keeping the toys off the floor. We cannot rave enough about this fashionable and functional bedding for kids from Beddy’s (Bed-Ease.) Read on to learn all about this innovative product that will make your child’s bedroom instantly feel more organized.
When it comes to taking care of your most personal needs, and we’re talking really personal, like only in the bathroom personal, we’re going to bet that you do things the way they’ve always been done. The sad fact of the matter is when it comes to handling business in the bathroom, women are using the same products that our mothers and our grandmothers used. Where’s the innovation? Surely in this world of “smart” everything, we can take care of ourselves in a smarter way. One woman wants to change the way every other woman in the world lives her life by giving smart solutions for personal care. Let’s join her revolution.
With 13,000 public campgrounds in the US and Canada (and that doesn’t even count private ones or go-pitch-a-tent-in-an-abandoned-field ones), we have good reason to believe that the oftentimes thought of extinct act of camping does still, in fact, exist. That there are still families who own a sleeping bag and a canteen and aren’t afraid to put down the smartphone for a night or two warms our souls. So, as the temperature starts to thaw, the kids begin to remember what grass and trees are, and Mom and Dad are finally ready to tackle that New Year’s resolution of “spend more time together as a family”, it’s time to circle a weekend on the calendar and go good ol’ fashioned camping!
We won’t let you take ol’ fashioned camping too literally, though. In this day and age, even basic camping gear comes with bells and whistles. We’re excited to show you what the camping gear industry looks like today, and what essential – yet oh so cool – products are out there to give your family-friendly camping excursion a modern and just-like-home feel.
If you wear glasses, whether just for reading or all the time so you can actually see your kids clearly, you know how painful buying new glasses can be. The pressure from the salesperson, the high cost of the designer frames you desire, and the long wait for your chosen glasses to come in are enough to make anyone crazy. If you are in the market for new prescription glasses (eyeglasses or sunglasses), you now can save money and actually feel happy with the process of buying your glasses.

Raise your hand if you have the t-shirt, or at least the blood, sweat, and tears that earn you the t-shirt. These days, women get.shit.done. But, we don’t do it alone. Every single day, that one loyal companion is always by our side, providing us with everything we need to keep hustlin’. You know who that is… your bag.

It’s time to chat about what essentials a #momboss truly needs in her purse, because a successful woman knows what’s needed and what she can leave behind. Let that deep business-savvy truth sink in for a second, then flip your purse upside down and start purging. Just be sure to keep…
