ANything better?
Whatever you can afford that your baby can digest. Abi was on Good Start b/c that's what she did best on. Nitara has medical problems and was on Alimentum for awhile (hypoallergenic formula at $24/can!!) and now is on soy. She's been on everything in-between.

Its cool how we can make different baby products out there. I'm glad that the crib net saved a life! Babies are very quick and mobile! And I'm glad that the podee thing can help a mamma to cuddle with their baby.

In defense of the diaper Genie, if you use sposies it's great, no smell!!!!!!!!
and you can leave it for later when you have time to dump it out.
Not when you have a baby needing boob!
unless you have a sling and don't mind bding in the back yard

Holy cow...can we say "bordering on neglect"?

Okay I can see the uses for the Podee bottle, as several people have given good examples.

I don't understand the use of the various bottle prop. I took care of twin boys and another boy (same age so basically triplets ) when they were 6 weeks old until they were 8 months and never needed a bottle prop to feed them all. Honestly it was very rare that they all wanted to a bottle at the exact same time.

Diaper Genie is great at containing the smell... until you have to empty it. : : The giant sausage of smelly diapers. Eeeeew!! So glad we use cloth. :LOL

We have one of the Breastbottles. My DS#1 wouldn't take a bottle and we were desperate to try anything that would work... he still wouldn't take it. I haven't tried it will DS#2 yet, so far he's rejected any bottles too. Yep, my boys like it straight from the tap.

With all due respect to you ladies, podee bottles have been a tremendous help to me. I am a single mother of twins, and medically unable to breastfeed my babies. This bottle has allowed me to feed them at the same time. And according to the link that was posted by Foobar this site in no way encourages you to "NEGLECT" your child. Only a...no offense... "stupid" mother would neglect their child. Although this bottle my not have any use for you, that is ok, no one is obligated to use it, but don't condemn mothers who my have the need to use it- by insinuating that the bottle is a cynical invention,and only people who don't want to spend time with their kids use it, because like to many people I know, this bottle has been an excellent help, including for me. In fact, on the same link that is being commented on ,they mention that there are medical advantages for your child , but most importantly it says, and I quote, "Use your hands to hold your baby instead of the bottle. Also, allows you to feed your hungry baby while helping your other children." and this is exactly what it has done for me. They are not telling parents go play and leave your children uncared for!!! This allows you to keep on the move while not letting your kids go hungry, for example, if you were taking your kids for a walk, they can eat and be moving and you don't worry about stopping. Mothers that I know that use this don't always feed their kids using this podee bottle; the bottle is used by them for those days when your time in the day seems too short, and you happily take any time saver possible to you, it doesn't mean you don't give your child attention, or NEVER feed them yourself, or that something is more important than your child and feeding them; because the truth is that if they had to choose between feeding their child and doing something else, they would feed their child!!!!. Come on people.... don't be so irrational, what loving mother would truly do that?

browsing through a catalog one day, I happened accross a toddler helmet - to protect his head from the bumps and falls of learning to walk.

does that seem extremly over-protective to anyone else?

my babe is still in arms who knows maybe i'll end up unable to bear the sight of him tottering around....but a helmet ?

I think her point is that you are supposed to dump the poop, even in sposies, though most moms I know don't do that. So therefore the diaper genie encourages moms to not throw the poopies in the toilet and just capsulate for later generations to enjoy the medical waste.

I saw a blog once with really horrid baby products...let me see if I can find it again and post it.

ETA found it!: http://www.i-am-bored.com/bored_link.cfm?link_id=21431 The tummy tub I like, the worst thing is the weird hand pillow thingy at the very bottom. Ewwww

Ok, now that has got to be the most bizarre baby product I've ever seen. A few people have pointed out good uses for the Podee and whatnot that I hadn't thought of, but really, is there any good use for this thing??

Baby bath robes - I received one for ds#1 and two for ds#2 : Iguess people think they're cute, but if I'm going to go through the process of puting their arms into something it's going to be ACTUAL clothing!

This one was too much! I started laughing the minute I saw it. It looks like something from a Saturday Night Live skit or something . I had no idea something like this existed.

Have you ever seen a peepee tent?? I dont know if i'd actually consider them odd, but they are funny. You put it over a little boy to keep him from peeing on you. My son is 7mths and has yet to pee on me, unless he is in the bath.

I saw that too! : I pointed it out to DH and he said that he would put ME in a helmet if he could.

Re: the breastbottle nurser, there were a few occasions where we needed to give ebm to dd, including when I had a breast biopsy. At the time she wouldn't cup/syringe/spoon feed but after trying a lot of bottles, the breastbottle was the only one she'd take. Needless to say, DH wouldn't have been comfortable giving it to her in public. When we need to give her ebm now on rare occasions, we just use a Nuby sippy cup but the breastbottle was great for those other occasions. DD even squeezed the 'breast' like she does to me.

Unfortunatly you can't see the pic that was in the catalogue-- the mom lounging and drinking coffee and reading the paper while the toddler runs off in the background. Plus I love the "Why spend 300 dollars on a GPS tracker for your baby?"

Can you see this?
