When a friend told me she packs a suitcase full of her daughter’s favorite stuffed animals when they travel, I wasn’t surprised. My family resembles a traveling caravan at airports as we transport all our gear. But with young children, you have to be prepared. (For example, last spring, our 3-hour nonstop flight from Mexico turned into an 18-hour epic journey home to Chicago because of unexpected weather disasters.)
So with the holiday travel season finally upon us, here are my top five sleep tips for babies and toddlers while you’re on the road. More

If you haven’t noticed, we get pretty excited over here at giggle whenever we launch a new or exclusive nursery collection. From the Harper to the Alex to our latest crown jewel, the Arbor by Oeuf, we’re like proud parents who just can’t wait to show off our new kid. (Can you blame us?)
Usually, we team up with manufacturers and work with their designers behind the scenes to produce a look we love. But this time around, we decided to have a little more fun with things… So we asked the folks at RedClayDesign.com to put the word out to their impressive following of top designers that we were looking to create a brand new nursery look. We asked them to envision the next great giggle nursery with two key trends in mind: mid-century modern meets quality craftsmanship. And the results were pretty impressive. More
They told you you’d be tired. You knew to expect all those middle-of-the-night feedings. But no amount of Googling or talking to friends or thumbing through parenting books will totally prep you for all the little ways life changes when that tiny person of yours arrives. This year, in honor of Mother’s Day, we asked mom bloggers and friends to weigh in on all those little-known and rarely discussed parts about being Mom.
Here’s what they had to say.
Last night was a pretty special one at giggle SoHo. After a busy day at the store came to a close, it was time to break out the champagne and celebrate the launch of a new book that has totally touched us: Carried in Our Hearts: The Gift of Adoption, by Dr. Jane Aronson. If you haven’t yet heard of the amazing Dr. Jane, she is the tour de force behind the Worldwide Orphans Foundation, an organization she founded in 1997 to help children in need across the globe. (We believe in the work they do so much, we donate a portion of our registry proceeds to the cause!) More

Short of standing over your child’s crib while she sleeps, nothing can give you more peace of mind than a good baby monitor. The moment your baby cries, whimpers, or even stirs, you’ll be able to hear her and come to her aid. And it’s not only about peace of mind — it’s about nabbing a little bit of time for yourself. A monitor allows you to go about your day while still keeping one eye (or at least an ear) on your child. There will be plenty of time for minding your own business when your child is older, but during the early days, enjoy this opportunity to eavesdrop with impunity!
You’ve got questions – Ali’s got answers! Our “Ask Ali” series features some of the questions we hear most from our customers.
Q: I can’t wait to take my kids outside more now that it’s getting warmer! Have any suggestions for summertime products that are sun-safe?
A: I can’t wait for the warm sunny days either! Spending time outside in the spring and summer with family are some of my best memories. And, like any parent, the last thing you want to worry about when you’re outside having fun is whether or not your kids are getting the sun protection they need. Here are some of my favorite no-fuss summertime products — all of which offer premium protection from the sun’s rays, so you won’t have to think twice before heading outdoors for some summer fun. More
