The supermodel has sworn by the soothing motion of a swing for her three children – daughter Leni, 4, and sons Henry, who turns 3 in September, and 17-month-old Johan. "When they were really small it was this Fisher-Price baby swing that runs on batteries," she recalls. "It has music and a mobile that was really hypnotizing for them. Every time they wouldn't sleep at night, I'd just put them in that and they would sleep."

"The thing that I love the most is called a TravelJohn Jr. It's a portable potty," says the mom of twins Ryan and Rodney, 10, Robinson, 5, and Roman, 3. "It's rolled up into an O-shaped funnel. If kids have to go it's shaped so that a girl can use it, too. TravelJohn Jr. is the best-kept secret because every time you get ready to drive somewhere your kids have to pee."

"I actually like a lot of baby carriers. I use an Ergo baby carrier right now and a Moby sling. I think it's nice," says The View host and mom of two (daughter Grace, 3, and 6-month-old son Taylor Thomas).

"Because when they're all cozy and toasty-warm and you wipe them with a freezing cold wipe, they start crying."

"Cloudsandstars.com have these sheets – when you're changing sheets on a crib that has a bumper, you have to remove the bumper. It takes half an hour to change a stupid sheet!" says the reality-show star, who welcomed son Max last July. "It's so frustrating. So they made these sheets that zip off the top. Genius! For any mother, it takes years off of your life – especially if you have a late-night change where they spit up, then you can just zip off the sheet and put a new one on!"
