OMG, the older kid in the bathroom-door-hanger thing is hilarious - she's kind of scratching her head like, why on earth am I hanging on a door like a coat? And I had no idea they made headgear like that. The hands I had seen before - I guess it's just too much for parents to HOLD their children so they feel secure. Much better to get stuffed hands.

Re: Hilarious: Top Ten Useless Baby Items

I think the tub looks awesome. I'll have to admit it looks creepy on that site, but if you look at the manufacturer's website that explains it with videos it makes as much sense as birthing in a tub. It's a pretty cool concept if you use it right from birth, but I can't justify the cost for my 15 month old. I've looked at it before on a cloth diapering site...when I was doing the GCDH, I think.

And I have used a real dogleash clipped to my son's Osh Kosh o'alls when we were on the ferry in Seattle. I was afraid that he'd pull his hand out of mine and fall overboard in his excitement. That was 10 years ago. Now my sister tells me that her kids (7 & 2) play TAG on the 1 hour ferry ride from Bremerton to Seattle. She's freakin' crazy!


Everything else I'll have to agree with him on.

Did you see some of the comments? Someone wrote something that he forgot to mention the "cashmere diaper cover"...hehe...if he only knew how many people actually use wool and cashmere for covers!

I love the tub...I saw them when I was in the UK. I really wanted one but have yet to get one.

The hands...that is just...wrong. Co sleep people, use real human hands to hold your baby!

We have a Tummy Tub! our friend in Berlin sent it to us. It is awesome! We never did the "head hold" thing, though. Lily was content in that little tub! And very cute....
