From the fun of Brackitz and a Tooth Fairy doll to the helpfulness of a Sleep Nest, each of these mom-approved products make life a little easier and more fun.

Teeth Fairies: A Baby Teeth Tradition

A book and doll set that celebrates the tooth loss process.

$49.99, teeth-fairies.com

The story was well written and the illustrations most definitely kept my 5-year-old interested in the book. The fairy doll added definite excitement that my daughter truly has her own fairy assigned to her. Also, she was magical and continued to watch her and her good eating habits, as well as her teeth hygiene. I also love the fact that at the end of the book we can write in the dates she lost her teeth and color in the mouth tooth chart to identify which teeth she lost when.

Baby Deedee Sleep Nest

A sleeve-less sleeping bag worn over regular baby sleepwear.

$38-$48, babydeedee.com

The Baby Deedee Sleep Nest helped keep my 9-month-old warm on cold nights. It's the thickness of a light comforter so it's warmer than your average sleep sack without being overly heavy. My baby sleeps comfortably in it. I use it every night and would definitely recommend it for your own child or as a gift!

Building and construction system featuring 4-inch wooden planks and various angled connectors.

$29.95-$99.95, brackitz.com

I love how the Brackitz system uses STEM concepts. I feel like my boys are learning while having fun! Both of my boys ages 3 and 14 loved building various structures and objects. Although my 3-year-old did have some difficulty snapping the connectors to the blocks, I'm sure as he grows older and his muscles grow stronger, this won't be a problem. Overall. I would highly recommend Brackitz to other parents as well as teachers.
