Lindsey Gladstone, national editor of the Kids edition, is a trendsetter for tots and parents alike by scouring through tons of products to deliver the best of the best to loyal readers.



Lindsey started at DailyCandy in 2004 and helped launch the Chicago edition, serving as its local editor until 2006. She then launched into homes across the country as "The Shopping Detective," a title she held on the eponymous half-hour TV show that aired nationally on the FINE LIVING Network.


In 2008, Lindsey returned to DailyCandy as the national Kids Editor to help launch seven new local editions of DailyCandy Kids.


Lindsey has also reported on shopping for The New York Times "T: Style" Magazine, written spa and salon reviews for Allure magazine and filed style reports for Chicago Magazine, Chicago Social and Front Desk.


Lindsey Gladstone lives in Chicago with her husband Ben, 18-month-old daughter Nora, and is expecting her second child any day now.



Congratulations on the impending birth of your second child. Has this pregnancy been different from the first? Do you feel a little more relaxed going into the process this time around?


Thanks! It has definitely been a different experience the second time around. I don't know that I'm more relaxed. I would say that between work, an 18-month-old, my husband, friends, and the general chaos of life, I haven't had as much time to fixate on baby number two's arrival.


DailyCandy Kids is known for uncovering the best baby/kid products on the market and has become such a valuable resource for parents. Are there any particular products that you've discovered as editor and incorporated into your personal life as a parent?


At DailyCandy Kids we only write about things we've tried, tested, and loved, so yes. A couple of items that quickly became personal favorites were the Beaba Babycook (makes making your own baby food a real possibility even for time crunched moms), Pitter Patties (makes the transition between baby food and solids so much easier), and my Dalla Nonna necklace with my daughter's birthday (makes the inevitable mommy sweatpants and tees look much more stylish).


Great interview with Lindsey, I am in awe of Moms who successfully juggle career and life, and then kids and hubbie too. I also have a suggestion of another female CEO who you can interview, Iris Shamus, who heads a company that manufactures wristbands and dog tags to safeguard kids who have allergies. All while juggling three kids herself! See But more than this, I encourage more commentary and more speaking out with these kind of tough and action-oriented moms. Thanks, Lindsey!
