I think I would've actually used that in the first month or two of DD's life when feedings and naps were all over the place and I was desperately trying to figure out a pattern to it all but kept forgetting to write stuff down or would write it down and then promptly lose it. But I never could've brought myself to actually buy one and spend actual money on it.

It is hysterical. And those creepy severed arms had me dying. I can't imagine owning those... One of the comments on the blogs was a guy saying he was going to buy them and use the to freak out his wife.

Maybe there IS a use for it (my babe isn't old enough to potty learn, and is a girl to boot), but it still makes me .
Ok, my DS has incredible aim for a 2 1/2 y/o, I have to admit and I know I'm lucky, but I can TOTALLY see the use for this. If DS didn't have such good aim, I'd probably buy one to avoid the mess.

As a side note, when I met my DH, he still lived in the same house where he raised his first family and the bathroom that his two boys used absolutely reeked of urine. After scrubbing it with every harsh chemical known to man (before I went all hippy dippy - : ), I figured out that it was in the subfloor and I'd never get it out. His ex wasn't the greatest housecleaner to begin with, but still, I'm paranoid that my bathroom floor will start smelling like that one...yuck.

So, I can see the practicality of it.

Lol, that is such a funny blog!!

But I take umbrage with including the Tummy Tub, I have one, they are brilliant. When my ds poos all up his back I just pop him in for a quick wash. It uses less water than a whole bath and my ds loves it, he sits in there cross legged like a little lord!

OMG, I got one too! It has never worked. Now that DD is older, I have let her play with it (only for a second to distract DD while I change her diaper) but it is otherwise as useless as the ear thermometer, which no one told me I wouldn't be able to use on a newborn. I figured it out the hard way (that a rectal is the only way to go) when DD was 5 days old and got a high fever from dehydration (because I have hypoplastic breast and even though she nursed every two hours no matter what she would never have been able to get enough milk to sustain her).

It looks a little like the harness I sewed for my then 4yo...but that was because he didn't like holding hands, and wanted some freedom to look around at stuff...but in crowds he had a tendency to wander off. I made the harness (with a 6ft 'leash') and he LOVED it and would always ask to wear it so that he wouldn't have to hold hands in crowded places.

Yeah the Babylegs wouldn't bother me so much if they covered the feet...otherwise it is just one more article of clothing to put on the baby...

That's why we bought it...my husband has 5 busted discs in his back, and our daughter ALWAYS wants to walk...and she can't quite walk yet. It does look funny, esp. the first time when he went "Gosh, she's heavy", and I noticed her feet dangling about an inch above the floor. LOL

I think a lot of these devices were made to actually help certain people. Are they right for everyone, heck no. But many of them can be helpful in certain situations.

BTW, the alarm in the pants...that is one of the ones that someone was drunk when they invented it. I bet you can use it for an older person to. Weird.

My best friend is a goofball who used to use a hairdryer on her oldest's bum EVERY time she changed him. I giggled to myself, I'm pretty sure she gave it up by the time her second came along. I still laugh a little when I think of it. If you're reading this, I love you, J!

The best thing about the Gerber Meat Sticks is there are 3 kinds, chicken, turkey and "meat". I guess they mean beef? It kinda grosses me out, exactly what kind of meat is it?? Eeek.

OK, the toddler urinal would have been SOOO helpful though I doubt I would ever have bought one (more stuff?? more plastic?? no thank you....).

and the butt fan--I wanted something like this to help dry those chubby little butt cracks out!!! but I never would have bought one. I can't imagine using one of those past the first baby...when there's a toddler making mayhem in the next room, can you imagine standing around fanning Sir Butt? "May I fan your bottom, sir?"
