Baby Stuff You Don’t Need
10 crazy baby products
-Julie Ryan Evans
The baby gear industry is booming with heaps of baby stuff you NEED less you run the risk of raising an uneducated, disease-ridden, non-social being. These ever-entertaining products range from the unnecessary to the ridiculous to the flat out scary. Here are 10 of the ones most likely to make you ask, really?
1. The Baby Bottom Fan I get the fight against diaper rash, but really? A fan designed to dry your baby’s bottom after each change … AND it comes complete with a “perfume dispensing function.” How I’ve survived without one this long, I have no idea.
2. The Thudguard Though children have been learning to walk for thousands of years, now your child needs a helmet to do so. Perhaps they should just wear one until they’re 18 in case they trip at any time? Come to think of it, perhaps they should have a special line for college students to protect them as they perform keg stands and such.
3. Nosefrida, the snotsucker I’ve never been all that skilled at wielding a nasal aspirator, but this is just gross. You put one end in your child’s nose, one end in your mouth and … suck. As doctor-endorsed, hygienic and effective as it may be, I just couldn’t go there.
