Babble Best Picks: Facebook Fan Pages for ParentsThe overwhelming amount of information online often makes it difficult to find the right answer to simple searches, like "getting baby to sleep." (Don't we all wish we knew the answer to that?) But instead of sifting through thousands of Google search results, head to a Facebook fan page. Companies large and small - from Pull-Ups to personal blogs - create fan pages to present relevant, mentally digestible tidbits of information. We've rounded up the 50 best Facebook fan pages that will ease the load of parenting in almost every way. Among these pages, you'll come across freebies to save money, tips on creating an eco-friendly home, and ways to make your kids listen without nagging them. You're bound to "like" at least one of these - or even all 50! And of course, don't forget to "like" Babble on Facebook while you're at it! --Jeana Lee Tahnk
