Top Ten Most Ridiculous Baby Products

When I was pregnant with my son, I remember going into Babies R Us. It is an experience. Rows and rows of items for babies, everything from strollers to toys, gates, bath products. All lined up screaming, "you can't live without me." Pretty quickly, you find out that many of the items are not necessities. This morning, I came across an article written by Matt Dinniman of the top ten most ridiculous baby items and just had to share my top five.


The Zaky pillow. Do these hands freak you out? I have never seen such a thing. Seems like they wouldn't even be that comfortable. They say it works really well, but I am not sure I would want the memories of waking up next to them.

The thudguard. Seriously? "While there are babies out there with genuine medical conditions that require protective gear, this is marketed toward the average baby. Better safe than sorry! Keep a hardhat on your baby at all times, and she'll never get hurt!This is just as humiliating as the child leash. We all want to keep our babies safe. But if you're going to do something like this, you might as well wrap them in bubble wrap and keep them in a padded room until they're 18. Sure, accidents happen. But there's a difference between an ounce of prevention and a pound of it."

The redneck pacifier. Okay, my cousin has one of these for her baby. Cute for a joke, perhaps. But for everyday use? Might be a good foretelling of what they will be as adults....





The baby toupee. Enough said.

Finally, the worst baby product of all time. The man breastfeeder. Made popular by Meet the Fockers, this is a real product. I am all for men sharing in the responsibilities, but this is one occasion that is better left to mom.


I hope you get as much of a chuckle out of these as I did. For the other 5, read the full article here.

These are hilarious!! The hand just freaked me out! And the man breast feeder? This has to cause some long term psychological effects.

Can you imagine waking up next to the hands? It would freak me out as well. Thankfully, we do not remember anything as babies:-)
