Insightly ($12 per user per month) is easy-to-use online CRM software that helps businesses n

Keeping Tabs on My 6-Year-Old With the Tinitell Watch

My baby boy is growing up fast, despite my insistence that he stop it immediately. He'll be 7 years old soon, and I watch in terror and awe as he grows more independent by the day. I guess I can't complain too much, since he can now help with bigger chores; plus, he's an awesome big brother. But with each passing day, he detaches a little more, and I find myself worrying about him wandering too far, getting lost, or—heaven forbid—taken. These are not new issues, but modern parents are fortunate

Nimble CRM

Modern communication tends to be scattered across various platforms. You might tweet, text, and email one person all in the same week.

Customer relationship management (CRM) software like Nimble (starting at $15 per user per month) helps you keep track of all your communications, and consolidates all the information relating to each contact.

Capsule CRM

Capsule CRM is a straightforward, general-use customer relationship management (CRM) tool.

How the Bellabeat Leaf Urban Can Help You Manage Stress

As a work-from-home, home-schooling mom of two preparing to move to a new house, life has been just a tad stressful of late. Okay, super stressful. It's mostly the good kind of stress, but my nerves are still shot. Did I get today's lesson planned? When is our next house showing? Was that a deadline I just heard whooshing by?

Hands On: Tracking My Kids' Sleep With HugOne

There are few things a parent obsesses over more than sleep. How do I get my child to sleep easier? How long should she nap? Should she be waking up this much at night? Will I ever sleep in again? It makes sense. If your family isn't getting quality sleep, your kids are irritable, and you can't be productive. How the heck is a sleep-deprived mom supposed to keep her cool when junior insists on another glass of water instead of going to bed? No sleep = no peace.

Tackling My Motion Sickness With Reliefband

Some of my earliest memories involve being in the back of a car, trying not to throw up. Motion sickness has been a lifelong companion, and to this day I've been known to get queasy on winding country roads—even when I'm driving. So when I had to fly from my Missouri home to Texas recently, I was excited to try out the Reliefband during the flight. Reliefband is a wristband that reduces nausea—especially related to motion sickness, VR gaming, and morning sickness—by emitting pulses that stimul... Parenting

Best Crib Mattresses of 2018

Finding the right mattress for your baby’s crib is perhaps one of the most important baby gear decisions a new parent makes. A too-soft mattress poses a safety hazard for newborns, while a too-hard mattress can make it difficult to get the baby to sleep at all (and a sleep-deprived parent is a considerable hazard of itself). As a mother of three, I know how tough this decision can be. You want the safest surface for your baby, you want your baby to sleep comfortably, and you want to have a few b

Track Your Baby's Sleep Schedule With Sproutling

So much of parenting babies and toddlers is wondering when their next nap will be, and if it will be long enough for you to accomplish any of those tasks that have been piling up. Some babies find predictable routines early on, but many parents struggle to pinpoint their little one's rhythms. Fisher-Price's Sproutling monitor aims to help parents find those patterns, and, in turn, regain some semblance of sanity in an otherwise unpredictable situation.

This Tracker Helps New Moms Take Care of Themselves

I always dread newborn checkups. I'm expected to answer a deluge of questions when I'm so tired I'm not even sure what day it is or when I last showered. For this reason, I've always been a fan of baby-tracking apps. I can store pertinent info on my phone and be ready with all the numbers our pediatrician will ask for at a moment's notice.
