The medicine pacifier dispenser has been around for a while. I had one when Andrea was a baby and that was 13 years ago. I got it for my baby shower. Never used it though. Sounded like a good idea but I never had a problem getting her (or any of my children) to take any medicine.

I would buy the baby heels, not for a walking baby, but for the gawdiness of them while she was in the stroller!!!

Okay, I just got to the changing wrap and read the comment below it. This had to have been written by a man or someone that doesn't have children. If that thing velcroed to the changing table pad, I'd contemplate buying it Biggrin I just got crap all over my changing table yesterday because squirmy decided she wanted to be on her belly and see what was going on behind her right as I was wiping poo off her behind.

Love the babykeeper! Can you use that for toddlers?!

I would buy the pee gloves, the therometer(which I think they have in stores now), the blanket thing if my child liked their feet free, and the helmet..

i thought the thermometer was a good idea but that's about it.

Christa, Lucas is a wiggly worm as well. he does his butt lifts and trys to roll especially when he does a messy poop. sometimes i can give him a toy to distract him and if i am fast enough it works but not always lol.

Some of these just cracked me up!

I want the Potty Mitts though for my DD! I would only use them when she had to use a public restroom though. And I might need the toddler tracker for her. Not that I don't watch her, but that little girl is FAST!! Smile

Someone gave my parents the paci thermometer and medicine thingy. I told them to keep it. DS doesn't use those things!

I've heard those nasal aspirators really do work. But we do just fine with the cheap bulbs.

The saddle had me cracking up! I'm 100% certain DH would never allow that. Lol

Still trying to figure out the water bottles for pee though. Beee

And the baby straight jacket. That wouldn't help over here cause DS would probably still find a way to flip. lol.

the baby snuggie and the saddle had me lol... that aspirator would definitely not work with us. i can't even get the bulb in he freaks out and shakes his head or pushes my hands away.

Did anyone notice how VERY negative the comment under the toddler tracker was? I'm pretty sure you get parenting points removed if you so much as thought this was a good idea. Chalk another article, snide comment up to the "how we're not good parents" message :rolleyes: Maybe I just took issue with the comment because I thought "hmmm, that would be kind of handy!"

Also, did anyone read the comments on the article down at the bottom of the page. I personally LOVE this one (NOT)

OMG!! I cannot believe these gadgets! Personally, I see a lot of “hands off” ignorance here. If parents now days are looking to ensure their children require a therapist growing up, or want their kids to feel unloved and as precious as they really are these contraptions were made to order! Hands and arms mean much more -AND they’re free (and washable too!) Quit wasting your money and start loving your child instead – ie’s much more rewarding now and in the long run!

Gag!!! Really!!!???? Because if you buy gloves to keep your child's hands clean while they sit on a public toilet, you don't really love them enough ROFL

Wow! Some of those are hilarious!! I thought the toddler tracker was kinda neat though, those kids can be quick!! I don't view as a substitute for watching your kids, but come on, you close your eyes to sneeze and they're gone! Oh and what about those people who walk around with their kid on a leash?! Are we judging them the same way?

I want the Daddy saddle! DH is so in love with his little girl, I bet I could totally get him to wear it for her! ROFL

I'm with Jackie - totally not getting the pee bottles . . . why would you need those - ever?

I would totally buy the hair head band Wink We have a wicked case of hair envy in this house.

We have the Nosefrida and let me tell you, that thing WORKS! Teagan wised up to the blue bulb real quick and would start screaming and flipping over the second she saw it. The Nosefrida can be used very quickly and it works soooo much better. I highly recommend it!

DH wants the saddle but for the dogs. He's obsessed with getting Teagan to ride the dogs :rolleyes:

We also got the thermometer pacifier as a gift but since she hasn't ever taken a pacifier, it doesn't work for us.

Most of the other things seem a little ridiculous to me but I could get into the BFing bra for Dads Blum 3 Perhaps that's what we needed for Teagan to get over her hatred of bottles!

The pee pee bottle is just plain weird. I've heard nothing but good things about the nose frida.

I can understand the concept of the baby keeper. When DD1 was too big for the carrier car seat and I had to take her with me in the public bathroom, it was a challenge keeping her contained and she would of course, would touch everything. However, seeing that baby keeper contraption kind of makes me anxious and I can't imagine actually hauling it around with me.

Ok, so as a mom who has that kind of nasal aspirator I have to say it works AWESOME!!! It's so much easier to use and gets the boogies out much better too!! Blum 3

I have a dummy thermomenter and the medicine dispenser, he has never had medicine in the dispenser, but I have used it with breastmilk.
