Leaving the house with a kid or more in tow to shop is not on the top of any parent's priority list. Thankfully you can pretty much buy anything from toilet paper to teething rings online, but sometimes you want that personal assistance typically found in stores. These 50 blogs and sites offer just that, whether it's through helpful product picks and sage advice, photos and instructional videos, or just by including heavy doses of humor.

So whether you're looking for that perfect pair of jeans, eco-friendly baby gear, or great gifts for all ages, we hope these sites will make navigating the mega-mall that is cyberspace just a little bit easier.
