Products to Help You Stay Healthy This Fall

A Good Night’s Sleep
Is bedtime a battle? Make it easier with the Huckleberry app, which promises to predict the “sweet spot” when your little one will be tired but not overtired. The California company, co-founded by UC Berkeley grads, offers a free version of the app including easy sleep tracking, color-coded daily charts and the SweetSpot predictor, as well as a paid subscription for a customized plan from a sleep expert and proprietary algorithm that addresses your child’s changing needs and schedule. For ages 4 months to 5 years. FREE or $14.99 per month. .
See in Style for Less
Prescription glasses don’t have to break the bank. Online retailer Zenni Optical, based in Novato, offers a huge range of stylish glasses at rock-bottom prices. Their Kids’ Flexible Glasses (pictured) are as durable as they are cute. Offered in eight frame styles and nine colors, the one-piece frame is made of soft, flexible plastic with no metal parts or spring hinges, and comes with a removable strap. From $23.95 for frame and single vision lens. .
 
Cure Earaches Naturally
When your child has an earache, you need relief fast. Try ClearPop, a lollipop-like invention that helps ears pop and clears Eustachian tubes through sucking and saliva promotion. The Walnut Creek company was started by John Muir Medical Center Dr. Scott Morehouse, who created ClearPop for his own children. In a trial, 89 percent of children reported immediate relief from ear pain and 78 percent did not need a doctor visit. It’s also great to relieve ear pressure from air travel. $11.99 for two.
Breast Milk Delivery
Give your baby healthy mother’s milk even when traveling for work with Milk Stork. Out-of-town moms no longer have to stockpile “liquid gold” in their home freezer or pump and dump on the road with this Palo Alto-based service that allows moms to ship their breast milk home via FedEx overnight or carry it in a cooler case that is shipped directly to a hotel or destination office. Pump & Tote from $79 plus shipping, Pump & Ship from $139 plus shipping.
