Being a parent is not easy, especially at this day and age. Gone are the days when one parent is deemed acceptable in getting a job to provide for their family. Today, we find ourselves in a society where both parents are now the providers for their families. As such, it comes as no surprise that there is a growing demand of devices or gadgets that make sure taking care of kids is easier.
However, as much as we want to splurge our hard earned cash on these nifty items, there are just some gadgets that are just plain useless and below are some example:
Who does not love to have a baby? Although feeling the baby kick is a joyous moment, announcing every time it happens to the whole world just seem like a waste of time.
2. Baby Bathroom Harness
Peeing in a public bathroom while carrying your baby is quite difficult. But, with the harness below, everything will be all right, right? Wrong. You’ll end up making your child appear like she or he is being punished.
3. Pee-Pee Teepee
This is a soft cloth designed to catch pee during diaper changes. Don’t you have the diaper for that?
4. Baby Lasso
Extra set of hands? Uhm, not really. This could even be potentially harmful for your baby.
5. Buff Baby
Babies naturally have baby fat that also naturally goes away. If you do want a healthy baby, feed them with the right food and give them exercise. Not this.
6. Why Cry Crying “Analyzer”
Crying is the only way babies communicate. However, is it really necessary to get this one? If you are willing to spend money on this, you will know just how accurate this can be.
7. Womb-Shaped Bath Tub
The TummyTub is a “womb-shaped and sized bath that is a gentle transition into baby’s next nine months and turns bath time into a soothing ritual that enhances bonding”. It sounds more like Baby Bucket.
8. Poop and Pee Alarm
Here is a unique device that tells you when your baby has already peed or pooped. Although it sounds handy, the beeping sound might just cause you some headache, instead of some kind of relief.
9. Baby Bangs
Babies sometimes do not have hair when they are born. But, why go all through the trouble of purchasing this? Your baby might end up having allergies instead.
10. The Crumb Cap
Babies and children will always be messy eaters. However, you simply do not need them to wear a raincoat-like clothing to “protect” them from their own mess.
11. Baby Butt Fan
Rashes are normal. And yes, some of them are caused by heat. So what better way to battle the heat out than with this adorable baby butt fan! Or not!
Here’s a convenient way to keep your kids entertained while pooping. It’s fine as long as they don’t get too messy.
13. Windi Gas Relievers
Apparently this item helps relieve baby’s gas problems. All you have to do is to plug it in.
14. The Snotsucker
Relive your baby’s nasal problems by sucking out there snot.
15. Placenta Teddy Bear
From the article: “The placenta must be cut in half and rubbed with sea salt to cure it. After it is dried out, it is treated with an emulsifying mixture of tannin and egg yolk to make it soft and pliable. Then, you craft it into a teddy bear.”
Need we say another word?
16. Baby Mop
Let babies have fun. They do not have to feel pressured of doing their part in cleaning the house.
17. Grillz Pacifier
Baby bling should not be a thing. The end.
18. Snazzy Baby Knee Pads
It seems like a good product but they are at risk of slipping, which will eventually cause some serious injury. Let the babies enjoy their surroundings.
19. The Zaky Hand Pillow
Although this comes in handy when you and your partner are busy, it does give a high probability of scaring the child.
20. Breast Milk Jewelry
Who knew you could make jewelry out of your own breast milk?
