As a parent, one of the most exciting milestones to witness is our child taking their first steps. We encourage them with outstretched arms and feel so proud when they finally get the confidence and balance to move their feet on their own. Once our littles gain their mobility, it usually leads to the following thought — we need shoes, but which ones should we get? A good shoe is essential to the development of good walking habits and with so many options out there, some parents don’t know where to begin. We’re taking the guesswork out for you with the adorably fun ikiki toddler shoes and we’ll tell you why.
What is it that kid’s crave? This can be such a complex question yet it can also have such a simple answer. Kid’s crave adventure and fun and they also crave comfort. Children love to embrace the outdoors, they strive to have both small and large adventures everyday, and what seems like just a trip to a new store to you could be an exciting and eye opening experience for them.
The 2016 ABC Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada boasted thousands of products from some of the most well-known baby and child companies, as well as some of the best and brightest up and coming companies. Our editors Elena and Dani ventured out to find the best of the best for our Daily Mom readers, and we have been dying to tell you all about it! Clothing, diaper bags, baby monitors, swaddles, and sleep aides – you name it, we tested it. Below you will find all of our favorite products for playtime – clothing, toys, games, and more!
The leaves have fallen and the Christmas tree is decked out, there’s either snow on the ground or just a bite to the air, the kids are bundled up in jackets and gloves while you frantically tie a scarf around your neck before opening the door… yup, it’s winter. The first day of winter actually; December 21st marks the first day of the cold season for 2016. And what better way to ring in snowflakes and hot chocolate than with a post about one of our favorite brands, KEEN, and their bright, unique, and winter-ready boots for the little toes in your family!
You may be dreading boot season, but unless you plan on escaping to the tropics for the next few months, it’s here, and it’s here for a while. So go ahead and cheer yourself up by being extra prepared for whatever the weather throws at you this year, by making sure your kid’s feet are protected from the elements, toasty warm and dry, and of course, super stylish.
All you want this winter is to bundle your little people up, keep them warm, and looking halfway decent. It would be a bonus if not only were they bundled, warm, and looking so adorably cute, but they’re dry! There’s nothing more challenging with snow (and melting snow) than having your kids feet stay warm and dry after hours of playing. Not only that, but some of us have outdoor chores and our own playtime to do – keeping your feet warm, dry, comfortable is exactly what you want in a winter boot. There’s nothing wrong with also adding in a bit of sass to the functionality of your boot. Muck Boot Company has combined comfort and high performance with style to bring you the best footwear on the market.
Stockings are a fun family holiday tradition.

Make your stocking stuffers be just as wonderful as your other Christmas gifts with our best stocking stuffers for Holiday 2016.

There are so many toys on the market for preschoolers today, and we’re bombarded with even more via commercials, flyers, and ads around the holidays.

We’ve hand-selected our favorite toys, games, and clothing from brands we love and trust, and compiled a gift guide of things you won’t feel guilty about giving your little ones!
The cold weather has begun to draw in for much of the country and gone are the nights of sleeping in oversized tee-shirts and shorts. Now is the wonderful time of year where you get to snuggle your kids in and make sure they are all warm and cozy. With the holidays just around the corner you may even want to read them heartwarming stories to ensure that they have visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads. With the new Winter and Holiday collection from Skylar Luna you can make sure that they are wearing comfortable pajamas that are crafted from 100%-organic cotton, free of any fire retardant chemicals.
Shopping for boy’s clothing can be a challenge. Any mom who has dragged her son through the clothing aisles will attest to the fact that wardrobe negotiations can be brutal. You just want to find outfits that are presentable (so that he doesn’t look like he just rolled out of bed) and durable (so that the clothing will last longer than it takes for him to outgrow it). Boys just want to be comfortable and look cool. FabKids is where boys’ fashion, durability, and comfort all come together. They offer stylish, high quality clothes at unbelievably low prices, and the best part? These are clothes your boys will actually want to wear.
With North West and Penelope and Mason Disick ruling the toddler tinsel town these days as mini fashion icons, you might find yourself a little discouraged when you look into your own child’s closet. Fashion-forward toddlers are taking over social media; coining terms like “micro-fashion” and “mini-fashionista” before they ever hit the terrible twos. But what’s a non-celebrity mama to do with a tight budget and the poison from the bite of the fashion bug flowing through her veins? Don’t worry! We’ve got you covered – or at least your little one, anyway. The following is a list of rules to live by if you want to fill your own toddler’s closet with fashionable threads without breaking the bank!

When your kids are really little, shopping for clothing is pretty easy. They’ll wear whatever you choose and your sense of style is theirs too – no questions asked. However, they eventually develop a sense of style all their own, and outfitting your daughter can become a little tricky.
