28 Ridiculous Things People Actually Buy For Their Kids

I recently had my first child, and it has opened my eyes to the magical world of baby products. You definitely need a lot of new things when having a baby, but some products out there are kind of crazy, and you should probably not waste your money.

The Crib Dribbler

amazon.comFeed your baby like that pet rat you always wanted. OK this isn't a real product, but you can buy this prank box to give one of the other ridiculous items to an expecting mother.

NoseFrida the Snotsucker

wordpress.comThe snot sucking tube really grosses me out, especially the strange noise it makes. A tissue works just fine for me.

Zacky Hand Pillow

thegreenhead.comThis creepy hand pillow is for when you don’t want to touch your baby anymore, but don’t want him or her to notice you’ve left.

Baby’s Poop Alarm

stayathomemompreneur.comThis device can alert you of a dirty diaper the moment it happens by sensing humidity, odor, and temperature changes. Just changing the baby regularly throughout the day isn’t that hard.

The Kickbee

kickbee.netThis motion-sensing belt sends a tweet on behalf of your baby every time a kick is detected. I don’t think even my closest friends or family would want that many updates, much less, the entire world.

The Windi gas relievers (aka baby butt plugs)

toysrus.comFrom the same company that brought you the Snotsucker comes these gas relieving butt plug things??

The Thudguard

toysrus.comKids bump their heads and get over it. It’s how they learn to be more careful. Don’t protect them from learning.

Pee-Pee Teepees

ecx.images-amazon.comYou are supposed to use these to cover up your boy’s junk during diaper changes to stop any accidents. I may have a girl but can still tell you babies move way too much for these things to stay on.

Baby Butt Fan

onsugar.comDrying your baby’s butt before putting a diaper back on can help reduce diaper rashes. I just use the diaper I’m about to put on as a fan.

Tummy Tub

mom4life.comThis tub (i.e., expensive bucket) is womb-shaped and that is supposed to ease the baby’s transition into the world. Just buy a regular bucket if that’s what you want.

The bottle holder

baolaichau.vnInspired by the beer holders we see at every NFL game, this product is great when you are just sick of caring for your child.

We've survived this long without giving our babies touchscreens, we can (and should) probably go longer.
