How can I get elements in jQuery with parent/child

I am writing some javascript tests and I would like to do the below using jQuery, $('.parent .child'); can someone assist?

"has at least 1 entry after loadFeed function is called"

it(".feed container has at least 1 entry", function(done) { 
       var numEntries = document.querySelector(".feed").getElementsByClassName("entry").length;   //use jquery parent/child here

Open in new window

$('element').parent() will give you the parent of an element.
$'('element').parent().children() will give you all the children of that parent element
$('element').siblings() will return all the children of the parent except this one.

Not really sure what you are asking?

Sorry, I figured it out. I was looking for this:

expect($('.feed .entry').length).toBeGreaterThan(0);
