Since my daughter Ryan was born in May, I’ve discovered that there are certain products out there that definitely make our lives easier. I’m not talking about expensive, fancy items; I’ve found that the things I rely on most are simple yet endlessly practical. Here are 8 items that I’d recommend to my closest mom friends.
Haylie Duff is our July 2015 guest editor. Haylie is currently the star of “The Real Girl's Kitchen,” on The Cooking Channel. The show, which was inspired by her 2013 cookbook and popular blog, is a blend of Haylie’s Southern roots and Hollywood life, featuring family, friends, kitchen adventures (and debacles), and fabulous food.
The Houston-born star began her career as an actress and singer-songwriter. She played Summer Wheatley in the 2004 cult classic Napoleon Dynamite and has since appeared in numerous film, TV, and theater productions, including the hit series, "7th Heaven" and Broadway's "Hairspray."
Haylie welcomed her first child, a daughter named Ryan, with fiancé Matt Rosenberg in May. The family resides in Los Angeles.
