How I Mom on Instagram TV! IMAGINE THREE baking sheets, each holding more than 100 pieces of half-built Lego sets. Now picture them on the floor of my living room, beneath the piano. For almost three years. Actually, you don’t need to imagine them. They’re captured on video for all the world to see in the latest episode of How I Mom, a new Parents Instagram TV series that I hope you’ll check out. Available on Instagram as well as Parents.com, Facebook, and YouTube, How I Mom features friends of Parents in their natural habitat because that’s where you can see the raw reality of parenting.

let’s get real

CELEB Words for All of Us These parents totally get it (even if they are famous). “Ever try to sniff your baby through the phone?”Hilary Duff, on Instagram“When I leave for work in the morning, my son gives me a running hug.

stop the sting of bug bites

HELP THEM THRIVE IN EVERY WAY _ _ _ _ _SMOOTHIES FOR SUMMER POOL RULES THAT SAVE LIVES_ _ _ LITTLE STEPS TO BIG GOALS Soaking up every bit of summer sometimes comes with unfortunate “ouchies” from nature’s tiniest inhabitants. Soothe the pain quickly and easily with this advice from Trung Tristan Truong, M.D., a pediatrician at MemorialCare Medical Group, in San Juan Capistrano, California.

An oral or topical antihistamine can also help ease itchiness. DON’T DO THIS Scratch—it makes the itching worse and can lead to infection.

THINK BACK to the 2016 Olympic Games, and Michael Phelps’s record-breaking triumph is undoubtedly the first image that comes to mind. But a close second is 3-month-old Boomer Phelps in the arms of his mom, Nicole. Three years later, the little nugget in the jumbo headphones is a walking, talking, and, of course, swimming big brother. And Michael and Nicole? Life’s pretty different for them too. On a recent afternoon, just before Michael got dinner on the table for Nicole, Boomer, 3, and Beckett, 1, Parents chatted with the Scottsdale, Arizona–based pair about how they’ve learned to join forces and enjoy the ride. Congrats on Baby #3! MICHAEL It’s crazy to think about. We’re excited. It will be a journey, but we can already handle two. We’ll tag-team! NICOLE There was an initial…

SPECIAL SAFETY REPORT ONE HUNDRED GUESTS. Oodles of toddlers. A kickin’ band. An unfenced pool. It’s enough to make any parent sweat. But at a party in the San Francisco suburbs last summer, the vibe was chill. “The host had hired a lifeguard,” says guest Debbie Haderle. “Kids were swimming and parents were drinking margaritas.” When festivities moved to the dance floor, Haderle was alarmed to see the lifeguard himself boogying away. “The host assured me all the kids were out of the water,” she says. But this mom of three wasn’t sold. She had just read a woman’s account of how her young son drowned in the pool at a busy vacation house. In the article, the mother urged parents to have a designated guardian watching the water even when people…
