Top parenting stories this week
The Ultimate Beach Hat
It’s hard to find a hat that’s cute but will protect your baby’s head, neck and face from the sun’s harmful rays. The sun cap by bummi (seen here in the Koi pattern) offers maximum protection with an ultra-wide 360-degree brim and is also waterproof, making it the perfect choice for days at the beach or in the pool. The sun caps are also Canadian made in Montreal, and all fabrics and components are sourced in North America and guaranteed lead, phthalate and BPA free.

Diaper Bags for Dads
Sorry moms, this one is just for dads: finally, a diaper bag without all the frills and flowers. Yes, now dads can tote diapers and wipes in style, thanks to this totally guy-friendly diaper bag from Daddy & Co. The Daddy Diaper Pack comes in black or camouflage and is equipped with durable side pockets for bottles and sippy cups, a larger pouch for bigger baby gear and a handy front pocket for keys, cell phone, pacifier and small toys. There’s even an insulated cooler pocket for snacks. Daddyncompany.com

Smart Pool Diapers
Disposable swim diapers have to be one of the most expensive things on the planet, so both the environment and your pocket book will thank you for buying reusable swim diapers. We love Swimmi by Bummis. The interior polyester mesh makes cleanups easy, while the coated nylon layer traps even the biggest mess inside and away from the pool. Fabric is soft on baby’s skin and is made with UPF 50 protection. Plus the designs, like Bubbles seen here, are ultra cute.

Last Minute Father's Day Ideas
Looking for a cool toy that is actually for dad but that your kids will love too? The new Sphero 2.0 works with your iOS or Android and turns your family room into a videogame.
Just download the Sphero apps onto your mobile phone or device and play. The ball can roll at up to seven feet per second and jump ramps. You can create racecourses around your living room or play educational games together.
We linked Sphero up to our iPad and tested it out with our kiddie testers – it was a huge hit! They even gave it a pet name and laughed as Sphero danced around the floor.
